Great lighting. I like the use of negative space here. I don't see anything wrong here.

IMO this needs a bit more light on your eye.

Very cool. Mesmorizing - perfect lines, a haunting darkness.

Wow, so stark! The collar on the shirt really adds something. Does the blank area on the left? That feels too wide to me.

I really like this...... Just the minimum of details shows, hinting at what your whole countenance is... I love the mysterious quality.

Just a little bit too dark.

I'm not always a fan of high contrast or very dark images but I think this is an excellent example of both.

This very strong lighting makes a very dramatic photo.

TOO dark in my opinion. but it has a certain appeal!

Are you deliberately hiding in the shadows? Possibly a little too much black on the left which could have been cropped

striking, effective use of negative space and key

I think a portrait should reveal some character, or emotion of the model, by showing expression in eyes or other facial features. Did your picture accomplish that? Yes, in a mysterious sort of way.

artistic/creativity? Creative lighting

Technical? good

Overall? Good composition and interesting.

i feel it is a bit too dark, not easy to judge the right kind of light is it?
06/18/2003 10:15:09 AM

Not bad, but I would have moved the light an inch forward. this way, it looks as though your nose is floating in mid-air. (5)
