Can I use him for destinations?
(just kidding..)

Wonderful candid shot, with a lot of expression/emotion captured.

I'm surprised this finished only in the top 20! Gave this image an 8 myself. When I first saw this, I remembered the rain submission and sure enough, it's the same photographer. Great job!

Nice, I like it!

nice portrait and editing, should do very good. There is a slight "halo" around his hair that could have been burned a bit but overall its nothing major. Good luck :)

Pawdrix...you certainly are establishing a style of street photography all your own. I really like this! Great processing and such an expressive "model." :)

A great combination of effective portraiture with anonymity -- the amount you can tell about the person without being able to identify who it is.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

So much character in this shot. I really love it.

Interesting candid portrait. Makes you want to ask so many questions. It's nice to see a portrait that portrays more than just a face. With this, you get a feeling of time/place/life.

I like this as it doesn't seem pre-posed - just natural and fun. He fits in well with the background. Good job! 9

I really like this portrait. The focus might be a little soft compared to some others, and it's a bit dark... but overall I think it works very well - you've captured some feeling with this. The "open" sign is a bit distracting - that's about the only thing I would mess with. Good job!

Great subject, nice composition, but my eyes are immediately drawn to the brightest spot in the photo -- the Snapple cap. Every time.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/15/2005 03:53:07 PM
Really like the smiling eyes, and the overall dark feel to this image. Would love to see this finish in the top three

I like this one alot. From my experience if you talk to these people they are more than happy to tell you theyr name and even share theyr experiencess, he shoudn't be unknown. Especially this individual seems to be verry welcoming. 10

Nice shot, the red lighting from behind is very cool. Great clarity down to the fingernails.

This is amoung the best of the challenge. Beautiful image. Great colors, great expresssion, great detail, and textures. I guessing there are people complaining about the sign in the background. I hope you are not listening to them. This back ground is so very important to this image. A great environmental portrait. Worthy of framing. I do hope you have given him a copy. Another image going in my favorites! Good Luck. <10>

Elliot Gould on the skids? I really enjoy this photo- right down to the devil may care expression and dirty fingernails.

My favorite by far. One of the only non-staged / set up photos in this challenge-and it shows. Excellent!

Nice emotional shot. Technically it looks a bit flat.

Wow, this photo speaks volumes! Great photojournalistic quality! 9

Great candid... Maybe crop it a bit tighter on the face and shoulders, although it is a toss up since the hands communicate so much. Heck, I will give it a 10:)
