I liked this image a little better in the thumbnail because all of the blacks faded together. Could you adjust the levels on this shot to get the darks just a little darker so that they did? I think that effect would really make this image stand out. As it is, I'm just a little distracted by the objects still slightly visible in the background.

What's often the most difficult subject, handled well.

Nice portrait of a weathered man. You would have done better with some kind of a back drop rather than being able to see parts of your house. Lighting might work well in some circles but I would have prefered a half lit face for more dramatic effect. Oh yeah, the self-portrait challenge was a few weeks ago. ;)

Great colors and lighting, the white undershirt is a slight distraction but nothing major.

Good shot...Could of darkened the background though. Otherwise great portrait.

Not much thought/time looks like it went into this.

I love the catchlights you gave yourself! This is really well lit, especially for a self-portrait. Good choice for a model!

would be better on a solid background, i think. the face is nicely lit and well shot, but the background clutter detracts quite a bit from this shot.

Good shot, but background on right distracts me.

Good color, but in this case, the background shows up too much. (Are you an infrequent shaver, too?) Notice the t-shirt wash out on the left.
Photo 9 Creativity 6 People 9 total 8 (if you could have wiped out the background, this would have been a 10, and lose the t-shirt, it's toooooo white for this shot)

too much clutter in the background for this to really be effective.

I like the starkness of the photo. Others may disagree, but I would have placed the subject in the centre of the photo. The blank space to the right does nothing for me. Front of the forehead looks just a little bit too shiny.

This people has a *smile, *smerk that makes this a charming photo. Nice light, good work.

05/27/2002 09:08:00 AM
All black background is good contrast to face.
