Really like this and love the idea.
Just my thoughts here - I find it too well lit... with a completely black background with no detail and the source of light being the tilley lamp I'd personally like to see it darker with more contrast.... perhaps it would make it more dramatic? :)
 
I like this one a lot.
Jim is correct, technically, but I wouldn't go crazy if do go down that route. I like to be able to make out all parts.

Thanks for this I may give it a go. I alway worry I edit on the dark side so tried to restrain myself maybe a little too much on this one
 
Excellent portrait and the various textures are superb.

To me the only worry about dark photographs is when it comes to printing as printers (and the paper) tend to make everything even darker. For the screen though, this is just wonderful.
 
I did feel as well that the exposure was not as natural as it could have been. After reading a couple of comments I thought Id give it a shot. Keeping in mind that the main illumination is from the lamp.
