perfect composition, great detail caught.

from a purely subjective point of view, I think the b&w treatment has been pushed a little far, and looks a little like the B&W newspaper effect in PSE, which im not a fan of. I think its the very high contrast level that gives it a bit of an edgier rough feel.Softer b&w conversions suit portraits better, again in my subjective opinion. Its not really noticable though so its a very minor thing.
