Not a bad finish, Rudie. I really like this. It has a raw sense to it, yet is still sensitive (to my eye).

Love it! Excellent treatment, lighting and composition. Portrays a sense of quiet strength.
11/10/2006 09:19:50 PM
Like the lighting and the arm/hand positions - nicely done!!
11/10/2006 01:42:39 AM
My what big muscles you have!!!
11/08/2006 04:53:56 PM
Looking dark too. Nothing better to pump the arms up than leaning on the top of a chair. Perahaps not a floral patterned chair. LOL

Nice shot.

Great use of shadow and B&W. Good composition.
11/07/2006 07:39:40 PM
great lighting and pose.
11/07/2006 06:14:01 PM
I really like the pose! Solid and confident! Awesome lighting and I like that you went B&W 9
11/07/2006 02:24:20 PM
great shot
11/07/2006 01:42:56 PM
not sure about your arm at the right, it's a bit too big in the frame. lighting is nice!
11/07/2006 10:40:37 AM
Very cool shot. I love the lighting and your expression. And my God you've got some muscled arms :P
11/06/2006 05:15:03 PM
This has to be my teammate! Very nice!
11/06/2006 11:23:09 AM
Good lighting and exposure.
11/06/2006 09:22:23 AM
the eye contact is wonderful, loving the b&w here!
11/05/2006 11:19:52 PM
A hefty down to earth character study displaying great inner and physical strength with such an alert gaze. Bump.
11/05/2006 06:17:26 PM
I very much like this. Honest and direct, well lit, nicely composed.
11/05/2006 05:51:12 PM
Now this is brilliant. There is a smudge on the left elbow...but apart from that the gaze is well and truly controlling the viewers attention.
11/05/2006 05:15:54 PM
Stallone? Excellent lighting and composition.
11/05/2006 04:31:15 PM
I really like the lighting in this picture, great job.
11/05/2006 11:40:36 AM
R - very nice! love the tat!
11/05/2006 11:34:53 AM
Very interesting. I think lowering the camera a little would create an angle in which the subject would be stronger (due to him 'towering' over the camera) and emphasize his strength and tough look.
11/05/2006 08:13:02 AM
:p not voting..but nice shot.
11/05/2006 05:47:03 AM
I love the lighting and edit
11/05/2006 01:47:27 AM
I don't care what anybody says about you- you're cute!! ;~p Love the tat. Nice lighting. My only critique is to kill the pink tones. I don't know why conversions do that, but I have that problem too.
11/05/2006 01:18:43 AM
Nice lighting and pose
11/05/2006 12:43:49 AM
Great job! Very cool lighting and composition!
