A fine portrait with a nice contact with the motive. The beige wall is in fine harmony with his skin and clothes. The low angle and big hands is a good aproach, hands say a lot about a person. I like the of center position with the empty space on the left.

I think this is very good. I have to disagree with Eric, I don't mind that the feet are cropped at all. In fact, I think this would not work as well with a looser crop, which would be required if you were to include the feet. I like the perspective distortion created by using a wide angle and shooting up and the colors are very nice as well. Not sure, but I think his hands might be a little sharper than his face. Good shot.

Nice picture ... great composition, I like the impression of really big and powerful hands. I wish there were even his feet on the pic. Great shot.

I disagree with eleparc. In order to include the feet you would have to change point of view which would surely spoil the proportions of the image. And this picture needs clarity of man's facial expression and the dirt on his hands. Good DOF - both the wall and subject's knees are in focus.

I am not sure that the feet would add something to this picture: I like it this way too Good work, and easy background for better concentration on the real subject.
