    Hey Sandeep,

    Welcome to the forum. Well I find his watch a li'l distracting & errr... his right shoulder missing. But thats just my 2 cents. Lets see what experts have to say.. They will be up with their views pretty soon...

    I think this is pretty good. The lighting looks fine on the skin. The dark clothing he's wearing is blending too much with the backdrop, and I think a lighter backdrop, or perhaps another light (if you have one) on the backdrop would help to separate them. Good composition.

    Really like this shot. I wouldn't change much to this set up. The glare from the watch is bit much for me (unless this is an ad for the watch). I really like the hard lighting as is, but I might add a kicker light behind the model to light up his shoulders and hair. Of course, that's to my taste.
