Superb candid portrait. For some reason he reminds me of my cousin, who is not Asian.

A very humble thanks to all of you for your comments and support. I am a lucky man to have the 100mm f2.8 Macro Canon, what a magnificent tool!
01/23/2006 05:02:49 AM
superb portrait Pete!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2006 02:32:16 AM
yay! I was one of your many 7s. I would say something about American_Horse's comment, because I think he's totally wrong, but I think that's so obvious that no more need be said... anyway, congratulations on your excellent placement in this difficult challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2006 01:48:16 AM
Nice one Peet, if he looked at me like that, I would have been running! Congratulations on a stunning portrait.

awesome photo doc!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2006 12:53:31 AM
another 4th... wow Doc, is 4 your lucky number?
Wonderful photo!! So so wonderful!
I love the expression, the colors, the shallow DOF (hehehe I say that about all your photos, don't I?)
Such a perfect photo!! Congratulations!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2006 12:24:44 AM

While even in my crazy part of the world this look might well be considered "exotic" and not conservative : )

Nice lighting, detail, expressive model.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2006 11:09:55 PM
Great portrait. I gave it a 7. I would have given it a higher score but I felt that having him in the foreground so separate from everyone else didn't fulfill the challenge very well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2006 10:37:45 PM
Could this be the work of the good Dr. Venter? Great capture
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2006 10:04:25 PM
Wonderful character study. 7

Superb portrait.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2006 05:04:52 AM
Well composed. Well lit. Lots of detail. And there is a crowd. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2006 01:55:53 AM
Excellent photo. Love the colors, and the depth of field. I'm guessing this one will do really well, as it should.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/21/2006 11:04:22 PM
Fantastic shallow DOF to isolate your subject. I would have preferred it more if the subject was not looking my way. Nice sharp focus and good lighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/21/2006 07:24:18 PM
gotta watch those conservative looking one's. looks like he's ready pounce.

DNMC

Answering your PM.

So, I can agree with everyone else that is giving you high marks that this is a fine pix. Your work is very clean. Your portfolio has proven that you do have an eye.

But unlike people that vote on emotion and not within the confines of this challenge, I claim DNMC? Why? Because this is not singled out. This is a candid shot.

To convince me of singled out needs at least one more subject weather a person or thing. Yes, your bg is blurred, but does not single out your main subject.

Great light, nice texture, color great, dof good, nice angle, b&w good, overall great.

Sorry for the low score.

Very strong image here.....

Excellent shallow DOF and great tonal values - 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/20/2006 08:27:00 PM
I love this one. The shallow depth of field is perfect for this challenge. What an interesting face!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/20/2006 05:36:17 PM
Very nice! My choice for the blue!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/20/2006 01:50:18 PM
Wow.
Amazing portrait here. Did I say wow?
Not sure if the isolation from the crowd was by distance as much as minimal depth of field, but who cares - I love this shot!

01/20/2006 08:24:07 AM
Confucius say.. very nice portrait. I couldn't resist.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2006 10:49:02 PM
Interesting face. I would have moved the individual to the left to give the eye more space and avoid an almost centered image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2006 08:52:43 PM
One of the best in the group ;)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2006 03:47:38 PM
A wonderful shot, one of my favourites
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2006 11:46:35 PM
Technically, this is a very nice photo. Lighting, dof, focus, subject, fit to challenge...all very good.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2006 11:31:27 PM
nice shot and wisdom speaks
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2006 09:14:22 PM
I think he spotted you...an exquisite photo, indeed. His expression is subtle without being obtuse. Great capture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2006 05:27:13 PM
Nicely done, DOF well used. The dead in the middle composition is a tad boring, which is my only remark to this very interesting shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2006 03:00:08 PM
Wonderful! Echos of " The Eccentric "...beautiful work.

Korea...nice. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 03:05:33 AM
The challenge asked for a person to be singled out in a crowd. This is a stunning candid portrait but maybe a little short of the challenge
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 02:57:41 AM
I think this is a fantastic shot, the letdown for me is in the cropping.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 01:20:54 AM

Absolutely perfect. The DOF is outstanding. The rich colors behind showcase his terrific face. This is a 10 without hesitation. Congrats on this fine image.
