Oh my goodness! This is such a beautiful picture. I love your idea for pride, it's so unique and creative. The way it is so focused and not in color adds to the picture as well.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/18/2005 01:37:07 PM
will probably get a ribbon... great contrast and detail.... super job 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/18/2005 12:08:34 PM
great portrait!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/15/2005 07:28:37 PM
Striking portrait, going to be one of my favorites, but maybe I'm a dullard, but pride in' being the best that I can be' just might elude me. Bumping it to a 9, and my regret no making it a 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/15/2005 06:31:15 PM
Amazing photograph.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/15/2005 05:39:48 PM
Great photo. Love the look. The one thing that doesn't work too much is the play on pride. Just looking at the photo I wouldn't be able to tell what he does/takes pride in.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/15/2005 10:23:28 AM
A very powerful shot! Well done!

What a fantastic shot!! Sepia/b&W is great. The high contrast and bright light reflecting off parts of the face works really well Congrats!! '!0'

Yah - there is pride in hes expression. Fine portrait
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/14/2005 10:24:19 AM
i think this is an absolutely wonderful photo, great textures and expression. i must confess i am having a hard time tying it to 'pride' though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/14/2005 09:15:19 AM
I love this photo, I think it is the best in the contest and I have scored it high. I can sort of see the relationship to the theme but others may not, but I wish you well anyway!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/13/2005 04:29:03 PM
Beautiful!!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/13/2005 12:14:29 PM
its a nice portrait i think the border does awful things to this as a whole image though. no border would be a 7-8 .... with it a 5.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/13/2005 07:39:02 AM
If this is not a goodman, I'll eat my hat (if I can find it!) It's going to be a ribbon again! The face says it all...
