I only have time to shoot weddings these days, and actual wedding photos never seem to do all that well unless you're Grigrigirl. So this is about the only photo I have for the month that's not too wedding-ish, and despite the fact that it won't score well, I freaking love it. So I'm entering it.

so there.

I know it's not technically very sound...there are blown out highlights, and noise, and some artifacts...these are some of the things I love about it :D

5.5 here we come.

***
Post Challenge Edit: Hm. well, I spose it did better than 5.5 - I'm surprised, tho I can't say I'm disappointed. A few people said they didn't see the Bogart in my photo, so I browsed the net a little, and found this --> 407319.jpg. Is it me? Dunno...seems kinda similar. Then again, maybe it's the JD. :)

You truly inspire me to be a better artist, not just a photographer.

Great shot Pedro! I wondered whose this was. Terrific mood and PP. Should have finished higher.

even more than bogart, the man has the look, clothing, hair and jaw of a 40's actor. I think that is what stands out the most in relation to the title and to Bogart specificly.

Art isnt always rewarded in these parts it seems... still ~ not a bad score at the end of the day...

I think it was a brilliant chance re-creation of a time gone by and it screamed Bogart to me from the first second..

I'm glad you know what the crowds want ..but still enter the images that move you.. afterall if we stop shooting to please our tastes n passions.. what is the point..

loved it P.. and had I voted would have been up in the top scores.

Not really Bogart-esque in my opinion.. :) But a cool portrait, excellently done. Lovely duotone, beautiful contrasts, and I particularly like the unusual persepctive, making his hands appear very large. Nice work, 8.

everything works together to create devil-may-care 1930's attitude. Masterful. 9

Added to faves. Great portrait! Perfect grain, good exposure (the whites are hot, but it doesnt bother me in this instance), great pose.

Brilliant. Love the sense of nostalgia. Wonderful and a nice variance from the sunsets and flowers (although they are good too).

Best of luck. You get an 8 from me.
