A Genuine Smile

This is a great shot - the expression is excellent; a genuine smile, you can see it in his eyes. The dynamic range of the black-and-white treatment really shines, the detail is strong, and there are fantastic catchlights in his eyes.
Perhaps the one 'negative' would be his visible fingers at the bottom of the frame, it's really just what you'd call a sloppy detail and not something most people would even notice, but a photographer of calibre such as you should be noticing and tidying up something like that. ;)
Even so, this is one of your finest - engaging and strong.

My dear mohsin
very nice portrait with good detail but light gives some contrasty feeling. rest is very well done by your near to perfact olympus gun.
I really like this one too Muhsin. Fantastic tones throughout, and I really like the detail .. the texture of his hair and his clothing! Looks like a real genuine natural smile.
Great shot my friend.

salaam muhsin bhai,
excellent capture, expression is natural n pleasant. amazing details n lighting (especially his glowing eyes).
thats the beauty of 4/3 that u don't have to step down to f/11 to get a crisp shot like this, but i wouldn't recommend 150mm fl for portrait cuz its comparatively softer. try 100mm at f/5.6 thats the prime spot.
yes i agree with rew, composition could've been better cuz i felt the hands but again being the original crop i wouldn't mind.

It really nice to see Younis bhai's comment here today :)
I (personally) like the pro-contrast which makes this one looks more a brighter as compare to a DARK B&W :)
The highlight in his eye is really engaging n supporting the smile he has delivered.
I just observed "His" right eye is much sharper n in good focus then the left one (may be its just me)
Link to the person i was talking about who used 50mm f/2 is
A good composition and nicely framed (i may second the finger details thingy)

I like the tinge of sepia in this , the smile is genuine and frank , natural looking young man , except for part of the hand showing at the bottom and perhaps cropping a little to the right to about where the dark fold of his sleeve ends at the bottom but that is being quite picky of me it is a sharp and neat composition finely presented here, thanks Muhammad ,
