A fine portrait that is certainly good enough to appear in a magazine. Such a wonderful expression you have captured with nice composition of this man's face.
Very Nice job!

I think you have over-reacted to Galder's comment and are probably due him an apology.
The face is nice, composition is fine - but the image IS noisy/grainy and it does look as though pp work has been done to remove him from an original background. I'm not sure that f11 was necessary - a wider aperture would have helped you lower the ISO and thereby improve the noise issue.
