Good intense portrait, nice frame! B&W was a good choice.
Can you (or do you want to) clone out the line in the background? If you can pull it off (it's pretty thick) I think it would look pretty cool!

Good shot and like the PP. I share GeoJerry's opinion about the line, if you could remove it I think it would turn to great.

i've never cloned before... hard to admit.. however, will give it a go.... funny, reminds me of the exorcist movie when the priest had those shadowy spears piercing him in photos..... dave m

Hey buddy - as you probably know, the "line" is a backstay - part and parcel of sailboat. Cloning it out (Lord knows how that's done) would diminish the authenticity of this very special photo. Also - were the shot devoid of the backstay - some might think the skipper is steering - "shudder" - a stink pot . . . . . . and that would never do.

Great shot Dave - that could be the cover shot on a sailing mag.

thanks jer, appreciate the feedback... i'm a landlubber, but do enjoy casual sailing on my buddy's boat.... he races it and does quite well..
i do actually help with the sheets as needed, but that's it, and thankfully so for him...
removing part(s) of pics is beyond my editing scope, and the backstay doesnt really bother me in this shot... be well, dave m
