Strong and vulnerable all at once - a powerful portrait. Great choice for a backdrop.

WHOA....This should have scored much higher. Lighting is spot on and those muscles...well...I'll shut up now!

Very cool! Nice muscles...for a sandgroper!!

So inspired and outstanding on many levels. Though the score is decent, it doesn't do the photo justice.

...oh you were robbed...so robbed! I was wanting to see this at least in the top 10.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/12/2007 06:50:14 AM

all joking aside, a lovely image, the quality of light is so beautiful as to almost hurt. well done.

Great set up and lighting. This is actually a great pose of those that have tattoos on their back.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very well toned body but then I see an old fridge or freezer in the background?! The B&W kind of add to the effects of the darker contoured skin vs. the whiter smooth door. Nice job, BB

great lighting!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/09/2007 08:20:50 PM
Nice. My only objection here is your background. If you had this photo with plain dark, or lighter background and lighting, it would do much better in my opinion. Overall, good photo :)

Great use of shadows & highlights. Works very well in b/w.

Beautiful composition, upper left corner is to die for. The little tuft of armpit hair is a distraction for me.

Love this, its a great black and white shot and I think the addition of that vintage fridge was a classy touch 9

Nice perspective ... like the tones there too... good choice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/06/2007 07:58:53 AM
Wow. And that's for the photo, not your back, which doesn't suck either. But wow. I have a tie for first place in the Deb scheme of things and this is one of 'em.

A muscular back in front of a refrigerator... a bit ironic :-) Like the shot though.

Very cool lighting. Wish I had a physique like that, my wife would be happy. My favorite part of the picture is how the spine seems mimicked in the fridge handle and the shoulders with the name plate. Very good stuff.

This is awesome. I love the way it looks so edgy and dramatic.

Great lighting in your SP. I like the idea, but not sure why you chose the background. I think it distracts from a great SP IMO. Nice work non the less.
