Nice composition, and very good portraiture - but I find the green cast on the face a bit distracting

Wow! I love the contrast of your skin against that brilliant green. Nice pose and expression, too.

Typically, ( i think) when subject of photo looks to a direction the subject is placed far to the opposite side of direcdtion looking. However, I think you did very well by placing yourself in the middle while looking to the right, seems quite refreshing to me. I think you have added an extra degree of interest to your shot. good job.

wow. What is he thinking about? Where is he? Why does he have green hair? Photos are supposed to engage our imagination and this one does!

What appeals to me about this portrait is the cool lighting, the natural hues and... the title. Particularly because of the title choice, I 'feel' that I might extract a sense of intent.

I would have loved to see the subject 'subordinated' to its environment, i.e. by increasing the focal distance (small figure - expansive greens) to emphasize an order of things. The shot, as is, also feels to me a little 'timid' with such 'partial' nudity. I would have preferred a bolder approach, which, considering the (given) integrity of the facial expression, would have made a powerful 'proliferation' of the title , and one in good taste as well.

Interesting, in a kind of "what's going on here?" way. I like the composition, formal and centered, but the lighting doesn't quite work for me -- the day looks too overcast. Would like it better if the weather had worked in your favor. :)

I love the crispness of your photo. Great colors. 8.

Something not right here would have worked better if you were not in the middle and your head not at the same height as the mountain
