"Pedro offers you his protection" - that's funny, because I recall you actually doing that one time! Great photo as always... I love the high contrast. So by voting for you would all of my wildest dreams come true? <GRIN>

Howdy Pedro. No wonder I didn't get the shirt thing ... it's a movie! Alas I haven't seen it; I can't stand movies. Haven't been able to stomach a whole movie since Citizen Kane (I was at the premiere, if I recall). I still like your portrait though, & wish I could give you back the point I deducted for what I thought was just a goofy shirt. Please excuse my ignorance.

Hilarious! I love that movie and that's the first thing I thought of when I saw this picture. Great job! Very hot! BTW, the picture itself was very well done. Nice choice for B&W, good lighting...

ok "1"

just kidding. nice shot. maybe a little hair light from the top/ack to give a little glow around you. Otherwise, a very nice portrait. Love your toning, as usual.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/20/2005 09:31:35 PM
sweeeeeeeeet! love the tone and that little smartass grin. :)

Okay, just don't hit me!

Excellent shot. Full of attitude topped off with a touch of humour. Duotone works really well too.

Okay, 9, but that's my final offer. Maybe. One of my top 5 picks.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/17/2005 10:47:57 PM
Cool and with that twinge of humor. the pose is great and the stare projects right at the viewer. This portrait conveys strength, strong character and untold determination. Bumping up another notch.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/17/2005 05:08:51 PM
good shot , since you bought the shirt i'll give you a 6
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Hello pedro. This shot was ver well done. I like the overall tone of the shot. I also like the seemingly natural and casual pose that you are in. It hides the fact that thi was a self portrait very well. I do feel however that the dark areas are a bit to dark. Your jeans and head fade a bit to harshly IMO into the background. The pole looks a little oversotend and there is a distracting white somthing on it beside your elbow. The only other thing I can see in this shot that I dont care for is that your left elbow was cut off. This shot was well done. Very crisp, well composed, and it has great composition. While I can't say it's a 10, I feel it earned every bit of a 8. Keep up the great work.

Nice shot Pedro.... you continue to show your creative side... and not too shy about blatantly looking for votes.

Yummy. Seriously, I like everything about this shot except the blurry whatever you are leaning on. Cropped a little closer and you would have a 10. 9 from me.

Been workin' out? Could be PS arms, I guess. It's a smooth, relaxed portrait. So relaxed it's easy to overlook the fact that it's a very high quality photograph. However, the Pedro promo really does diminish it's appeal a lot (stick your thumb over it & see for yourself). 7

Well exposed, composition good, nice job! (Confident, brash, a tad reckless perhaps. Close?)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/14/2005 10:49:03 PM
Hey - is this Pedro? Ha! I'm giving you a 10 despite your shameless self-promotion. Good lighting, interesting composition, visually appealing facial expression, and humorous to boot. I'm hooked, you win, good job!
