Wow, I was out of town until Monday without an update button or email, thought this was maybe top 10. What a nice surprise to come home to a red ribbon.

Thanks everyone for the votes and the very nice comments!

For me that's for blue, but red is good too :D

Generally, it's best to have someone looking into the frame, but in this case, the crop and person in the background makes this the exception to the rule. Speaking of exceptions, this is a gem - truly an exceptional shot.
Congrats on your first ribbon Jeff, and somehow think we will be seeing more.

This guy looks like someone who wouldn't mind messing with your kneecaps if you owed him money. Great personality capture!

An excellent character study. I like the balance the person in the background adds. Great light, great B&W.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

excellent comp and tones. well seen...and I wonder what he's thinking?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/14/2007 11:26:21 AM
I like his expression and I like the photo. I think it would be a little better if he was on the right side though. The empty space to his right isn't serving any purpose for me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/14/2007 06:56:32 AM
Great expressive face good comp and tone control, soft background draws you the the main subject

nice one
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/11/2007 09:46:00 PM
Nice work...I actually like this one, the way he is looking out of the image and the horizontal seat takes you across to the other person.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/11/2007 05:50:40 PM
Nice capture - Great lighting and PP - Very nice - I think I would have cropped it just at the black border on the left though as thats a bit distracting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/11/2007 01:41:40 PM
I like the lighting, the expression, and the depth of field.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/11/2007 08:51:12 AM
Can't help but wonder what he's thinking. When a photo evokes questions, tells a story, you know it's good.
