You know I never realized this was your picture...just didn't make the connection. I've had this in my faves for a long time. I love the stoic feel of this!!!

That is totally ninja, though I know that Koreans are not technically ninjas. I love the emotionless stare through this guy has. Well captured.

Perhaps my favourite in this challenge. Looking over the comments, posthumous comes closest with "Asian Baroque." If I think of something better I'll let you know.

Perhaps my challenge favorite. I love how the eye area is shadowed without being underexposed. Good composition and terrific subject, your processing works well for him.

This is pretty sweet. The subtle toning, the shadow on his face, the lines in the weapon and his hat. Nice!

Great shot...but I kinda want to tell him to say cheese just to see what he does?
