Bit too blown out in the highlights I think, yet not quite enough for high key.

I like the high-keyness of this one. A couple of the other more high key ones were not so good. I think this one works better because of the darker hair and facial hair. Good work. I like the way it looks kind of like a 50's port.

Nice fadeout, went a bit too far with it in my opinion, though, because the right side of the image is a little TOO washed out. Just by a little.

Excellent study in great light tones, great eye contact, perffect composition because the photographer leaves a lot to the imagination of the viewer.

This seems a little too harshly contrasted. A few more grays slipped in there as opposed very light lights and very dark darks would probably make this portrait feel warmer.

I like the picture, but it seems to be a little too bright for me. I like the composition and the stark black against white though. 7

I feel that the high-key doesn't work with this very traditional pose.

I really like the incredible white-on-white quality of this. It works. Your expression is interesting, too.

I like your choice of high key here. It gives it interest and some otherworldlyness (is that a word) about it.

nice high key(?) shot. You did an excellent job bringing out the highlights in your hair. Focus and clarity are raelly good as well. nice detail in you. Nice pose, and the background is not distracting in any way. Overall a nice shot. High key isn't my favorite, but still nicely done.

I'd like to see the contrast brought down on this image. It's difficult to see the texture of your skin. I like the pose though...Seems Very natural.
