Good shot. Love the dramatic feeling of it and those colors are the right choice for this one. Nice lighting.

i absolutely love this image.. you have created a wonderful dramatic air and contemplative mood. so the title does fit nicely. the lighting is what really makes this stand out to me. i love how we can only see half of his face. and the colors really add to the mood as well. very nice work on however you post-processed this. wonderful.

What a wonderful shot and processing. A really like the darkness of it and it certainly deserved better than what it got!!

If you mention Joey it wasn't helpful. Too bad.
12/08/2005 08:52:29 PM
i saw a lot of pictures ranked above yours that weren't as good as this one. definitely one of the best from the challenge.

I'm not going to read the comments cause I know they'll say "too dark," but that is precisely why I adore it. Man, this should have done WAY better. I stick by my original 9 all day long.

If it wweren't so dark (in shade) I would think this was Joey's work. Too much detail lost in the shadows.

Beautiful and emotive shot Mauricio ;) Love this one more than your garbage entry. 8

It's a little dark (mood wise) for my taste, but quite an excellent shot. I really like all the shades of green. Good job. 7

Great photo, I like it. It's creative with unique editing. Try crop a little bit off from the left, maybe all the way to the "lock"(?) on the door or maybe just have all of the person's right foot inside the frame with a little bit space from it to the edge. I think the darkest area to the left isn't necessary. Good job, I like it when people get creative and it works out this good. Great job!

Interesting how the most prosaic of subjects and the simplest of set-ups can result in a memorable and powerful image if (but only if) the original idea is a worthy one, clearly expressed and sympathetically executed. This is one of those! 9.

What a cool atmosphere! I love the gloomy light! Your model has an interesting look on his face. Your title is well chosen, I wonder what he _is_ thinking.! 10. Adding to favs.

Very nice photo. Great use of lighting and shadows to create a mood. Detail, focus, and composition, and use of negative space are nice.... 8

What makes this picture special is that I'm pretty sure who took it. A unique and consistent style combined with rich compositions sets you apart from the rest. Nice job.

Hallmarks of a JPR/JL about it. Title feels a bit banal in the context of the image but maybe that contrast was the intention. Good processing as always

I like the low key lighting in this and whateve you did to post process. The contrast makes this look dramtic. Well done (8).

You actually come across with a thinking feeling. Very nice capture. I really liked the low garage light effect and the lighting on the face.

i can pick you out from a mile away... :) 10 from me!

ok so the GRUNGE in this is a big hint of who took it but i still like the coloring the only thing im not sure about is how you can't see the persons whole left side b/c of the shadowing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

what a wonderful, strong image . I think I recognise the style and even if I am wrong I will compliment this photographer for a great image! 10 from me!;-)

too depressing, if that what you wanted to create, you have certainly got it.

good job!

Fantastic! Can't believe how much detailed expression you managed to pull out of the dark mood. Excellent job. 9

Perfect colors! I love the look and feel of this one. Nice work!

this looks like a "joey," but if it's not that was a compliment.

This is a great shot. Very strong mood. The subjects legs make an interesting lead-in, and the tilt adds interest for me. Nicely done. 9.

For all of those who will comment "Too Dark," I say BRAVO for doing it. The hint of light on his face is awesome. I love deep thought provoking shots such as this. Way to go!!! 9
