I like the b&w version of this because it draws the viewer into the person so much more. There is no way to get away from his gaze or attention. Another plus of the b&w is that is does not allow for distraction. The model stands on his own merits and so does the lighting. Creative use of the wiring, or whatever it is coiled around him. It creates the illusion of him either being in a trap or being able to cast one himself. Normally I don't like having one of the eyes mostly in shadow like one is but for this photo it works very well. Great lines and flow for the model. Please pass on my appreciation and congratulations.
My first thought was "that's a digital drawing". My second thought was "Woah, wait ... a PHOTOGRAPH!?". My third thought (which I'm currently repeating in my head) is "no way a real person can look this flawless".
