Stevie, this is a nicely dramatic photo. I like the lighting and the way the background contributes only a moody colouring. Good work. Look forward to seeing some more. Congratulations on your ribbon.

You did a great job of isolating the subject and minimizing distractions. The lighting and composition are also very interesting.

Congratulations!

Wow... You definitely have an eye for the right picture! I looked at your profile and I couldn't believe my eyes... you are so young (not a bad thing)! My baby-brother's grandson is older than you! And look what you created!!!!!!!!

This was a very nice shot...well balanced, tightly focussed and most of all... an incredibly wonderfully lit shot! This looks like you had the gentleman in your studio with lights here and lights over there and reflector down there. But it isn't! It is CANDID!!!!!!!

Great job! Look to see a lot more from you in the future!

And...tell your Mom and Dad congratulations from me also. Although all that you learned and exhibited in this photo(and the other shots on your profile) are a reflection of your talent and your talent alone... they obviously were the ones who steered you towards photography, helped guide you towards loving it... and gave you a great eye! Outstanding!!

Big congrats! Awesome shot!

Outstanding capture. No better image in the challenge. I think the image that shares the 3rd place with you is an insult to this image.

Holy crap kid! You've got the stuff. I wish I had found my love for Photography at 13. Great stuff!

Wow, 7.0000. Congrats on your high score and your "honorable mention" (soon to be "tie for third" if the SC agrees). I like the lighting and the composition -- you captured a really nice pose.

A very good capture that packs in the excitement of the event. Congratulations on your top 5 finish. Better yet, the new revelations says a "YELLOW" Congratulations again.

Well done on a great placement and a whopper of a new PB! I am hoping Zoomdaks math is right. A ribbon would be a great bonus. Well done!

07/04/2007 03:55:28 AM
I've done the math, and I think you've tied me for 3rd place. I'll let the SC know, you deserve a ribbon with this shot!

amazing photo.. words are not enough for me to express the quality of this photo..
  Photographer found comment helpful.

this shot does not work as a thumbnail - too dark, and the pose is unusual. I would say it was too dark, but the red on his led saves the shot. Excellent lighting on his upper body and excellent action shot.
