Stunning stuff! This was my favorite for the blue as it is so dramatic, both on the subject and the background. The choice of lighting and b/w is perfect

Another great job of yours Alex
This, Rene's and Enzo's were my faves for the ribbons.
I only hit the bull's eye with Rene's blue.
Anyway, you have tons of blue ribbons so who cares right?

Very interesting perspective. I would have liked to see more of the jacket lit up to make your presence in the foreground stronger.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/09/2007 07:14:07 PM
Good drama. Great clouds with excellent tonal range, and the face is lit just right. Wish you had toned down the white specks (snaps?) on the coat.

excellent photo..9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/06/2007 11:36:15 AM
Great SP Alex. I like the pose and where you chose to shoot. Unlike many of the SP's your background and surrounding really help. Lighting is perfect on your face, and composition is bad ass. Nice work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/06/2007 09:12:57 AM
Nice background... face is a little indistinct
  Photographer found comment helpful.

wow, i have no idea how you lit this but it is STUNNING
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 04:39:04 PM
Brilliant use of hard lighting with a cold-looking backdrop. The wide-angle conveys the right feel, too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 04:13:38 PM
Great Lighting...pose...and setting :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 12:13:04 PM
Like a modern day heathcliffe stood on the moors! Fantastic SP and I love the fact that you have combined a very low key atmospheric image with a well iluminated face (did you do that through lighting or dodging)

Tremendous clouds and the bare trees really add to the feeling of desolation 8

So dark and moody. Love the editing and stance.
