Joey, you are not a good photographer - you are a master of emotion. No one has ever shocked me with the power of imagery as you have no one. I am humbled and I am grateful.

My greatest respect, Mike

(I posted this here as it seemed the most fitting. I could have said this on any of your images.)

Joey, shame on you! Embarrassing photographers who have much more experience and equipment with shots like this. Go to your room! 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/25/2006 05:24:49 PM
Love the tones and the expression...but the eyes steal the shot here....excellent!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/25/2006 01:35:03 PM
Good use of a prop. Like the overall composition.

You could raise the money for your video camera by modelling:))

Your eyes are very soulful.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/23/2006 02:38:17 AM
I love it.

For some reason, I wish your fingernails were dirty, though. I like that it has grit. Grabs me. Makes me think.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/22/2006 12:42:16 PM
Very hip, well done

Nice eyes, the angle/crop works well too

love the colors and the very intense look on your face. nice job. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/22/2006 08:05:40 AM
I believe you've made quite a name for yourself so you're recognizable ... ignoring that fact, I think this is revealing, cool, and technically well done. The finger on the edge of the glass could be considered symbolic.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/21/2006 11:32:01 PM
i love this
very cool
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/21/2006 06:15:31 PM
You been knighted recently? ;) Excellent tones, as usual... and nice composition
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/21/2006 05:58:42 PM
Don't know you, but this self portrait is just beautiful, by colour, style and composition. I gave you my highest score 9. I don't give 10's because 10 is the ultimate and I like to think that nobody's perfect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/21/2006 10:27:49 AM
Excellent image...great clarity, composition, and processing. You could use this for the liner notes of your DVD release that's all the buzz right now. ;)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/21/2006 08:10:37 AM
Good positioning blacks are a little dark and the white looks washed out.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/20/2006 09:20:01 AM
Nice composition and I like how the cracks in the glass are leading away/towards your eye. Nicely done.
My guess? Joey.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/20/2006 09:00:03 AM
Young Joey. I like how you restrained yourself with the editing (I mean, the grunge-look, which I'm not a great fan of). It's taken me a long while to figure out what the translucent object is - I guess a dusty old piece of broken glass or perspex. Very good effort indeed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/20/2006 08:51:22 AM
Outstanding. My 2nd 10 of 66% rated. Good luck!

I like the impact of the broken glass...great composition
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/19/2006 10:10:26 PM
One of my favorites! I like the way the window cracks are lined up with your left eye. Excellent composition, light, and the slightly muted color. I'm not really liking the white frame. Still Excellent work. 10

A fine portrait Joey, I am impressed!

05/19/2006 12:06:17 PM
As always, nice work. I like how the cut in the glass around your eye is shaped to frame it.

Great shot Joey. Love the blues and the mature look. That broken glass is so close to your eye! ;-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/19/2006 10:21:29 AM
Nice work, Joey! I like the lighting and overall blue tone, and use of broken glass piece...edgy.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/19/2006 10:20:28 AM
nice shot, not sure what that thing is you're behind and after awhile its all I can focus on, but initially I was drawn to the eyes and the expression

Intersting composition you got there with all that negative space.
