-Inner Strength- (BW Shots of a Male Human Adult + Face)

Challenge #113 in the I'm Only Human, Of Flesh and Blood I'm Made... series. Hosted by ConanFuji.
Challenge has finished
Last year I held a challenge called Inner Beauty which challenged entrants to depict this subjective phrase. This time around, take a shot of a scene with a human adult male as the main subject. The main subject must be visibly at least 1/4 of the height or width of the photo area. It would be preferable (but not compulsory) for entrants to provide some info on your entry.

41st place (joint)
This photo was created with a few characteristics that keep it from being easy and predictable to view. The slightly off center crop creates some visual tension... and the use of a ring flash, giving the subject a unique dark halo effect sometimes seen in fashion photography. Hope you enjoy it as much as I have creating it.
