The title is the birthday of the model, Helgi Hóseason. Helgi is well known in Iceland for protesting against the church, christianity and war. I find it rather appropriate to photograph him during Easter.

I asked him if I could take some photographs of him, he said I could if I would make him look decent. I tried my best. While photographing we had a nice chat about politics, the war in Iraq and Jesus Christ.

This is very nice! I gave it an 8. Wish there was just a bit less shadow on the one side of the face, but love the detail.

Wow, a 6.733 and you didn´t even make a top 4 spot on our team. Talk about the Magnificent 7 having a good week! :)

Congrats on the top 10 placing, could have gone even higher if it were not for the Kapluggin couple...

Thanks Robert for pointing out that the lens info was wrong. I forgot to change from the default lens.

Rasputin? Great image and detail on beard. Would have liked some more light on the right, but not much more. Just enough to give a hint of detail.

great shot, but too dark! :( I would like to see more of his eyes to feel the subject more

This has GOT to get a ribbon! It's the only one I'm faving right now (193 votes so far). Everything about this image has appeal for me: That look and that huge beard in particular. Also love the strong blacks and whites in tone.
