That's freaking awesome, Nicky! Honestly, the other "f" word is what I said, but I'm being all proper 'n shit.

Having the tip of his nose appears to make him jump off the screen and get up in your face. I know his eyes are probably the intended focus, but I really like the corners of his mouth for some reason. And the sharp bit on his head makes me want to give him a little friendly head rub.

Fantastic! The eye detail is stunning.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/14/2012 02:19:24 PM
I really like the image, if only you could have brought the focus forward so that the mouth to just behind the eyes were as clear as the eyes…. Still it's one of my favorites in this competition. I hope you place well.

05/14/2012 12:11:12 PM
Not sure if you were after the blurred nose or not, but I would have preferred this shot with more sharpness there. The eyes are great but the nose detracts in my opinion.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/14/2012 10:45:30 AM
I totally love the perspective here. The eyes are fabulous.

I'm a bit put off by the nose being so OOF...

Oh this is great. The blurred nose just adds to the focus on his eyes. Creepy. :)
