I'd be more interested in reading why you took the shot rather than reading the gumpf that you've pasted from the metadata into your notes, Muhammad. The notes don't tell us anything.

What prompted you to take this particular shot?
What are you trying to express?
What are you trying to portray to the audience?
Why do you think this shot is so interesting and so technically demanding that you felt the need to upload it?
What are you teaching the audience?
What do you hope to learn from the audience?

You've titled this shot "Exhausted".
I don't see any sign of exhaustion at all.
I see a man leaning on his tripod, looking at, or listening intently, to someone else in the same room as him.

I've mentioned this to you before, but it seems you are obsessed with the site. You're uploading for the sake of uploading.
Unfortunately, you're not uploading anything of interest, and you've forgotten what the site's about.

Here's my critique now.
The shot is grainy, (Because instead of using the optical zoom to get to the 300mm end of your lens, you've opted for digital zoom in the post processing stage) it lacks any real focal point, the colour balance is wrong for the lighting conditions, causing that horrible cold blue cast throughout the frame, it's totally lacking contrast and the colours are washed out.

As usual, it's a point and shoot in full auto mode.
This all points to your failing to understand the technical abilities of your camera or how to use the functions and controls of it.

No apologies for my truthful critique.
