This song popped into my head just a day before the deadline. It took a couple of tries to get the focus right.

I LOVE IT! Great border and a great picture. I had to smile to myself when I saw the comment a certain (ex) member left you in block capitals. I've never known such a contrary guy! Got a similar comment in block caps on one of my pix from him. Good riddance!

This is a beautiful portrait. The skin texture is superb. There is lots of darkness happening here which is key to your message. The unusual reflection in the sunglasses is a little complicated for my personal taste. I would like a more simple theme in the reflection. But that is me alone and not the other 100 voters. There is a hint of minor distraction in a different background tone beneath the chin. I would like just a litttle more breathing space beneath the chin. Although you may not agree, I think that a vertical crop and tossing away the left two thirds of the image would make an interesting outtake. Otherwise this is truly an inspiring image worthy of many compliments. Good luck!

This is a pretty good portrait. I wish the crop wasn't quite so tight but aside from that it is very nice! - Inspzil

i like the subtleness of the lighting.

Grat composition, well choosen light. Maybe the reflection in the sunglass could have been used more to add a wow-effect to the picture. Still, technically one of the best pictures of the challenge, if not the best.

Lovely lighting and framing. I am left curious though about what is being reflected in the sunglasses. I'm not sure if I'm meant to recognise it but my instinct is to try and recognise it? Very good otherwise though - definitely suitable as an album cover.

Are you actually looking at the Corey Hart Album? that would be so cool. I think its great when people have let us know who sings their songs. It lends credibility to it.

Love that song. Your futures so bright!!.......I love the photos, the shades......too cool. Fun shot, good lighting.And I wear my sunglasses at night
So I can so I can
See the light that's right before my eyes! I'm doing two songs at once aren't I? LOL
Never mind. I pick this in my top three!! Good luck.

This is very well done. Some may think it is a little dark overall, but I think that conveys the 'at night' part of the title. If I were to change anything at all, it would be a little more room beneath the chin. I usually just ignore added borders, but your white frame really compliments the reflection in the glasses. this is a great image and I'm giving it a 9. Good luck!

I almost did the same thing :)

Great shot. One of my favorites this week. What is the reflection. I think it is the Album cover but I can't really make it out. Any how, great stuff...

Nice picture. Good lighting but maybe could have used a bit more. I'm not usually a fan of large borders, but this time it works well with your picture. What is that reflecting in the glasses. A magazine page?

Very cool.
