I hope you tell us the story behind this image in your description. I'm fascinated.

This is an excellant image. The composition is great with the three detectives wearing glasses. Their intensity makes this image scream out at you, "What are they looking at?". Inquiring minds want to know!

Nice job creating suspense. Now, does your description deliver?

hell yes. myfavourite image so far. I really like this. i can't tell if it's posed or not, which is one of the things i love about it. don't listen to the anal-retentives who tell you it's not filling the frame. I'll be watching to see how this places. it better be high. great depth, nice ambient light. I like that you metered to the guys inthe back, muting the front face a bit.

Awesome shot. Great dynamics in a couple of ways - first, the triangle created by the men's glasses; and second, the sloped lines all through the photo that point in the same way the men are looking. DOF was used very well, the closest subject it tack-sharp and the others are blurred enough that they're still definitely a large part of the image, but it adds depth to the shot. The black and white tones are perfect throughout the entire image. Just doesn't get better than this. 10

Good shot! I'm not sure if I understand the title, I'll have to give it a little more thought. Shallow DOF creates a cool effect. The focus and detail on the first face is amazing. I can't really make out the reflections in the glasses.

this is a neat shot.. also looks like "the matrix" or "men in black" or the "sapranos" LOL
I like the dof and use of b&w. the angle is interesting, and makes me wonder what they are looking at.. good work!
