Good street type image with tight focusing - which works at that aperture. Well composed too. My kind of shot.

Well exposed, unobtrusive background but with some visual interest, good use of the wide aperture to make the subject stand out, and slightly off centre positioning of the subject avoids a static look.
The shadow areas, particulalrly his hair would benefit from a little lift using the Shadows slider when converting the RAW image. I'd say that was an option to consider as I quite like this rather contrasty result.
I'm afraid I can't make any other suggestions as this stands, so take that as a compliment as it's a good shot.

Paul and Keith have said it all. This works.

Exposure looks good. Sharp. Light level was pretty low, though!

Check out this lady 's wonderful reflection self-portraits, for inspiration.

Pre-focus, then hold the camera at chest level, and the photo will include your face.

Hello pptbudi.
Looking at the picture I kept getting two strong messages:
One is ''Nikon'' (it seems the only vivid colour in the pic is the yellow brand name on the strap)
Two: Body posture.. the shoulders seemed to have come together slightly.. that is why the big crease on the jumper on the right side we look at seems to have been created.
Having the latter in mind... I cropped the picture from the right to imply that confinement.
As for the Nikon, I thought, ''who's more important? the camera or the photographer?''
The answer I gave to myself is.... ''the photographer''. You in that instance. So...
I've made it black and white so the yellow doesn't pull the attention on the brand. Nikon is there and it will continue to be there. But what it matters, is the photographer. Keep that in mind.
Adios!

Thank you very much Paul, yes, I remember what Dudler said to try on small object on widest aperture and I took a distance and try it and the result quite impressive and I really like it Smile

Thank you very much my friend, I still learning how to make some adjusment on that capture NX-D, because Duddler and Moira also told me too, and I still little bit confused to use it and how to do adjusment on it, well will try keep doing that till I understand better, and thank you very much for the review that given, I really appreciate it Smile)

Thank you very much my friend yep, the light is already bit low it's entering afternoon evening and gladly with the 1.2 still can capture more light even as you said it's pretty low, will try to do adjusment by software to raise it, I hope it can deliver right contrast or light as expected, thank you very much Smile)

You're very right my friend the photographer indeed and thank you very much for the lovely modification and the input, mostly about that body posture, I haven't know about it much yet and still lot of practice and learning, once here was mention about how to pose video link and I always forgot about that on the field, but will try to keep remember that as much as possible. Thank you very much and sorry to all for the late answer, I really appreciate all the comment and input and modification beeing made, Thank you very much
