Interesting processing. However, when I saw this I immediately thought it wouldn't go over well with other voters since it had the same characteristics of an oversharpened image. Aside from that this is a very nice portrait. I like the composition the best. The color I like the least. Perhaps a b/w version would work better?

Not sure if I like the pixellated look on the details here, but damn - it sure is a striking image.

rather hypnotic. not a real fan of the processing, but that's just my opinion.

Beautiful eyes. Not sure if I like the lighting though,...a bit too bright IMHO.

Great focus and high key image, with lots of details. I'd prefer the t-shirt also in ligher tone...

Nice portrait shot. Just a bit grainy for me.

Very pixellated - severely over sharpened, I'm afraid.

a bit too overshapened, but that was probably what u were going for, nice picture and good luck.

This is a nice portrait, but something has degraded the detail in his eyes and hair to the point that it becomes a major distraction.

like it very much
What's there as post processing appart from sharpening?

Love those blue eyes...

Really swell processing. Incredible clarity and SUPER eyes! Love it. 10

I would have titled it "Long face" It seems awkward somehow.

Great portrait! The only thing about it that bothers me is that you probably went a bit too far with the sharpening tool. I like the high-key approach and the crop/composition. 7 (a bit softer and it would've been an 8)

01/14/2007 10:30:05 AM
hmm, it would be much better in my opinion if the subject was not cropped of like this at the top of the frame

Very clear. The high key look worked well here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I usually don't like high key portraits but this one really works. Love his eyes and his beard.

Interesting picture with good detail but for some reason on my monitor it is real bright and hurts my eyes a bit.... strange.
