Great shot, Bazz! Nice to put a face to the name. The lighting is great and I like the sepia tone. And as soon as you find some models, send some my way.

This is a great shot mate. Gave you a 7, it's good to see you in the flesh so to speak.

Great portrait.. feels so casual yet not so much.. I get the feeling you are just waiting for the shot to be taken so you can get back to the things you love.. Although i'd say you do well on both sides of the camera ;)
It'd be a great autobiography type shot..you know when you write yours ;)

A-HA! So that's what you look like! :) This is a very nice portrait, has an apprehensive feel to it.

You obviously do know something about portraiture to come up with this. Love the tones, clarity and attitude. Very nice image!

That's a seriously good portrait, the kind you'd find in a magazine profile of some celebrity ... though I guess you're not a celebrity yet. ;>)

I don't see anything really wrong with the shot, but it isn't quite grabbing my attention. The lighting is fine, though I wish there were a small catchlight in the eyes. The composition is fine, and I like how it isn't dead centered on you (which could make it a little too static). I'm not sure what to think about the coloring. It seems like a dark copper duotone, but could be achieved other ways. I think a straight black and white would be great as long as the histogram was pushed all the way to pure black and pure white.

There ar smuges in the background and a bit to low in contrast, too bad, because i like your pose.

Models, whatever, you've managed to do a great job in capturing your insecurity before the camera. I love the off-center crop, it adds to that sense of vulnerability.

you look like a young version of Tommy Lee Jones...nice..like the stripped shirt, tones and pose

your title is great!

Nice use of negative space. I like the vertical stripes of the shirt too. Good lighting. ON my monitor, it looks like you did a "brighten" of it. I'd adjust levels ever so slightly, but maybe it's my monitor. Good luck!!

Good luck.

I like the way you stand out against the black background, then shade into it. Nice, sharp rendition.

There seems to be some marks on your photo where maybe you burned it or darkened it. They are a bit distracting.
