Challenge has finished
What can you create with a lot of white in the subject or the background? This challenge encourages discussion for improvement. Enter early for the most constructive feedback. You, as well as any member are encouraged to critique entries. Add comments on how you think images can be improved. If you love it as-is, say so. The entrant, after reading comments may update the photo with a modified version of that photo if they desire. CAUTION: When withdrawing an entry, all comments in a challenge are lost, therefore, BEFORE withdrawing, please copy & paste challenge comments to the original photo in your own gallery or keep somewhere for your reference (so they can be retrieved later when people ask what the comments were and what you changed). THEN withdraw, and immediately re-enter with your modified photo before the challenge goes to vote. It would be nice to add a short summary to a modified submission stating what you did based on feedback.

I like this picture, but it just feels like it needs something. Maybe it's the position of his head, maybe it's the background. I just can't put my finger on it.
