This is my husband of 25 years. He is warm, funny, sweet, caring, and my best friend. I thought black and white would be a good way to capture him, and he reluctantly agreed to sit for me.

Yeah, this is the sort of picture I like! Took one similar last year. Great character in this mans face and all the better for being in BW!

Wonderful portrait, he is very masculine and shows strength with a bit of an attitude. Reminds me of Hemmingway.

Cool shot! He looks like a guy from an old movie or the Marlbro Man :) One of my favorites this week.

Everything seems to be in right order here. The feeling is a little bit too perfect - I wonder if this shot has not been set up in a studio like environment etc. Anyhow this is really good portrait.

Excellent moody, well composed shot. Nice work.

I like this. Cropping, lighting and focus are all good. There´s something in the background that is a little disturbing. Anyway a great portrait and high score from me.

Nice lighting, nice composition. Good job.

Very good portrayal of this man's character. I have no suggestions that would make this photo better. Gave it a 10.

nice subject, could be more centered on the face, the hand with cigarette calls attention more than expression on man's face, but overall good

it's the marlboro man

The hand is a bit dominant in the image. Now that I look at it again that comment was cause by the fact that the image didn't fit on the screen I was looking with at the time....
I like this portrait, it has enough elements to tell a story about the person and it is done pretty good.

This is totally awesome! Has the look of the a man with alot on his mind. I give this a 9.
12/30/2002 05:44:59 PM
Nice shot.
12/30/2002 01:52:12 PM
Nice light, nice tones, nice pose. I like this shot very much. I might of liked the hand lowered just a bit. Good work, good luck.
Did you ever see the 'smoking man' on X-files?
12/30/2002 11:00:33 AM
An absolute 10 for me. Love the lighting, the composition, and especially the look on his face.
12/30/2002 10:42:10 AM
My favorite this week!! Good luck!

Excellent portrait shot. Mmm I wonder what he is thinking about... Great clarity and composition. Well done.
