Nice job and only a few comments. If I think about it like a product shot, the pants are a little too close in color to the coat, combined with the background it doesn't stand out as much as I would like. Normally that would be the job of someone else - nothing about your skills as you did a nice job with the DOF to minimize distractions.

Also I think your url is a little high in the first shot and is a little distracting - I would have placed it lower 3rd of the shot.

Thanks for reply, I agree about having a better combination of what models wears.
The dof for the first image for me should have been more blurry, and the building on first image is a little therefore a distruction, it is muche better on the second... My opinion so far.....

I do like the colors, hope that is acceptable for other viewers....

Regards...

very nice shots! I do agree that the tower right behind the model in the first photo is a little distracting, and either a more diffused BG or different positioning or framing would make it better.

I like the poses...Very Poster like for a store poster.
The BG's are a bit distracting, maybe having the buildings offset instead of behind the model may work better. And, while on the BGs'. A mask to apply a heavier blur to the BG only may work better.

I dono, the paints are not a big deal for me. Very common to wear close colored top/bottom combo's.

All in All... Nice job.

A few things come to mind. In the first one, the building in the background is very distracting. A slight change in position could have removed it from the frame. I also think it would have worked better were the model angled a bit instead of straight on. Before you trip the shutter, always take one last look around the frame for things that might be distracting. Better to change it then than have to re-shoot later!

In the second one, we are still dealing with a distracting background. I think a little less turn on this one and maybe having him do something with his left arm to generate some interest. The pose looks very stiff to me.

Both of these images could have benefited from a weak (- 2 stop) fill. There are some dark shadows around his eyes, no catchlights in the first one and only barely perceptable ones in the second. If you were shooting digitial, which I am assuming you were, a change in white balance to cloudy would have removed the too cool cast to the images. I am assuming you were going for a desaturated look in these images, because the color is very lowly saturated.

Very nice tonality in these images.. if this was/is for a fashion manufacturer... they would want to see a little bit more detail into the shirt (you can always go back to your raw file to pull a smidgen more out). Great location, mood, and feel.... love the water on the ground too...

agreed, i like the tonality of the images and your post processing. i also agree the building structures behind the model is a bit distracting only because of how you composed the shot. for male models i believe using shadows add to masculinity and strong character. overall good job.
