Well done! I just think those sheets? Or whatever hanging behind this young man are a bit of a distraction. Bugs me....I keep wanting to look at them for some reason.

Well done indeed.  I am not sure about the laundry also...

If the laundry is part of the story, as I think it is, I love it.

I love the image, posing, composition and lighting.  What I see as an area of improvement is here; the white linen and it's placement is too stark of a difference from the other photo elements and competes with the subject matter.  Possible fixes may include post dropping the exposure level, changing the hue, adding a little blur, anything that bridges into a similar color palette/tone.

All in all, however, it is a very good image, caught at the right moment.  Great job!

I like it.  Personally I may crop it a little diffent as I don't like subject dead center but it's well done.

Id call it a portrait as far as genre, and it's really really nice.  I love it.
