Wow! Thanks everyone! I'm thrilled to get my first ribbon with a picture of my father! He's a pretty goofy-looking guy, but a super-intelligent physics prof. Watch for his name when his fusion confinement theory is published at the end of the summer!

That is a real Bailey's style! I had a look in the book and he really takes such masterpieces! Please tell me where you found a guy like that? He is so cool! 10!

Wild!

Wonderful, hilarious (insane?) capture/expression. The perspective (in the face!) would not be my personal preference, since it may suggest 'complicity' on part of the photographer :-D.

I'm left curious about any unrevealed gestures and/or body language that may have prompted this shot in the first place.
Given the 'acute' sense the subject communicates, I wonder if the 'light' background sets the appropiate mood. The way it is rendered here, we're more 'hilariously' afflicted than frightened, which would, IMO, have increased the impact. > 6

Funny!

This is a wonderful and humorous portrait. I wouldn't have cropped the hair all out at the top of the image though - 9.

Nice study with some good tones and a great quizzical expresiion. [8]
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I think this is the first picture on DPC that has EVER made me laugh out loud. An absolute 10!!! I think the crop is a little heavy on the right but that's okay. Great Job!

what a wonderful image! Great lines and expression. If I could vote, I'd give this a 10

Very striking image, great eyes! The background is very effective. Focus is very sharp, brings out all the lines in his face which helps the character of the shot. Fits the challenge well. 9

Great lighting, great detail, doesn't make me feel the need to know more though.

Truely bizzare... looks almost like a mask from a distance. Great shot and lighting.

Is this Kramer's dad? Fun and a bit disturbing to look at. Great facial details!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/08/2003 07:36:51 AM
Wonderful expression on his face and his hair is wild. good shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/08/2003 02:15:49 AM
Now Thats A Shot. I had that same barber once.
Great detail, perfect pose and expression.
The left side collar is just a little over exposed for my taste showing only one small dark spot. The crop is just a bit tight on the left to me.
Great work, - 10

My favorite of the challenge! He has a great Christopher Lloyd (of "Back to the Future" fame) sort of expression there, not to mention similar hair styles!
