Another beautifully done portrait! Excellent and very sensitive.
I just bought a used 1DMKII and can't wait to try it out! (not that having the same camera will instantly bless me with such a superb sense of vision :)

very expressive image. I like how his pose is echosed by the diagonal wood beam behind him. the lighting is excellent.

Great background and contrast... The pose fits very good in this atmosphere...

amazing frame i really like it, good skin tone

This is a fabulous portrait. It's perfectly lit. The composition is absolutely brilliant ... well conceived and meticulously executed. And you have retained a totally appropriate soft and muted feel to it in processing, providing further evidence that the masterful composition was no fluke. 10.

I really liked the lighting. I am not sure if the angles of his arms and legs works that well with the angle of the wood behind him.
09/14/2005 01:00:34 AM
Nice shot, I like the lighting.

I like this one because it's unique. The man model and the well chosen rugged background fit so well. Great lighting and subdued colours. Hope this reaches the top position.

Very nice. Great pose, great idea and soft, pleasing colors.

Nice subdue lighting creates interesting shadows. Make a change from harsh lighting often seen here. Interesting decor.
09/12/2005 06:51:20 PM
This shot really makes me wonder what's going on in his life. Has he just lost the woman he loves? His job? or is he just contemplating the universe and "undone" by its vastness. Nice to see another shot that tells a story.
09/12/2005 05:24:03 PM
I love this picture..you really captured his emotion.
09/12/2005 02:53:24 PM
Nice job. The lighting is awesome on the model for such a low light area. I really love the natural feel to this. Good luck!
09/12/2005 01:02:40 PM
Great relaxed feeling, nice mood, nice lighting. 9

Lighting is perfect for this emotive picture. Good job.

Nice lighting and pose. His expression is what I really find appealing about this. Definitely brings across emotion. I think the model would have been better barefoot, but I realize that's personal preference...the one he's wearing doesn't ruin the shot or anything. ;)

Nice. I think this is more of a study than a true portrait, but the lighting and the composition is so good, that I don't care. This is a work of art.

This is a wonderful portrait that tells a story or mainly stories. The lighting rocks and great subject. Good luck.
