HI JZM
well, this is a striking photo, this man looks evil! or he is simple and the eyes are just staring without comprehension.
Either way best to be avoided.
The treatment you have given is one of personal choice, I think you have acheived the look you wanted.
Techically I cant really fault it.
An interesting photo?.... yes, attractive?.....No. :)

HI Kbe
As a portrait of family, its better than most.
No problems with exposure,sharp enough,I like the general framing with space to the side. Dof handled very well, background nicely blurred.Glasses( which can be difficult), handled very well.
Things to note for improvement all imho,
For me the worst thing about this picture is the thing in his ear, I don't know what it is, and I find it distracting.Forgive me if its a hearing aid, that he has to wear.)
As you say you have clipped his hair, that's unfortunate.With digital best to have a loose framing as you know you can crop later. ( some people might say that's lazy, but you avoid this problem. As it stands you could crop further down, so we would know it was intentional and it would also put his eyes on a third, which is generally a good thing.
Like the background but I think I would have toned down the bright bits.
The expression is a bit bland,and doesn't tell us much about the subject.
The lighting is a bit flat, seems to lack a bit of life,maybe because its very even and lacks a bit of contrast.
I think if this had been my shot I would have asked your brother to put a shirt with a collar on, as it stands you are emphasizing his rather long neck, especially with the chin tilted up.

Very dynemic, strong, emotional image!
Impossible to believe that you did it without a tripod ...
Love the ray that comes across the DJ, and his hand up in the air.
You can't complain about the head shadow in the low center under these conditions ...
very well done!

waiting for other shots from this party!

Dear Koh, did you have a bike when you were a boy?;)
That might be an explanation of your mystery:)
If the wall was one colour the image wouldn't be the same.
If the line was straight in the middle it would loose that perfect balance!
It's just as it should be!
bravo!
