Beautiful photo, great clarity

Greetings from the Critique Club!

What can I say? Another great portrait from a master. The thing I like most about this is how you composed the shot. He's centered, his elbow and the top part of his hair is cut off and the background is busy yet this turned out to be great photo. What that tells me is your focus was primiarly on him and capturing him rather than giving us something totally contrived and unreal. As such you've told me everything I need to know about this person to understand him and his enviroment. I can't think of anything else you'd want to acheive than that. Congrats on the ribbon and I look forward to seeing more of your work!

I just can't believe the clarity of this photo! Really nice.

Manny, if you could post what kind of processing you did, that would be really great. Did you do any local contrast enhancement (USM w/ large radius)?

Great dof and lighting. Exposure seems right on. Great potrait. shows alot of texture. (I've always believed that cabby's know more about a city than anyone.) Nice idea and capture.

Very nice, meets the challenge well.

You should have asked him to put his arm elsewhere, it is really distracting. The rest of the portrait is great though, color, sharpness, all work. 8 from me.

Nicely composed and lit.

Love the intensity of the eyes! The background is a bit distracting and could have benefited from an even narrower DOF>
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/15/2006 07:34:23 AM
Awesome rich colors - i know a driver who has eyes like this. I almost used him but the photos were't good enough -- this cetainly is!!! .... This is a really interesting character you've captured here. You got the photo I wanted! 9
