Your photo illustrates perfectly the concept of the title. Sadly, however, concept art doesn't score well on DPC! (I should know!) But if it comforts you at all, just know that there are those of us here who understand, and truly respect the social and political statements photographers, like us, try to make with our photographs.

Therefore, STAY THE COURSE! Our job is Truth, not popularity! :) "10"

I like the angle of your head but the contrast is a little light. The way you hold your mouth gives me the feeling that this isn't the first time you've been in front of a camera. BB

This had potential but the filter you used drained your contrast. Looks like it was a good pic though.

I feel that the filter or effect used distracts from the portrait.

I like your face; technically it's a little bit too transparent. You shouldn't hide yourself that much. I would love to see darker eyes, clear view of lips and face... composition is very good though. Nice positioning in the frame :)

Sorry... just not digging this one. Not sure if you meant to make it soft and washed, but didn't really catch it.

I like the pose and expression. Very classy. However I think the tone if just B&W would have helped a bit. Nice work non the less.

seems unsharp and greyish

Apparently gauze over the lens is not in the soul. :)

I found it too soft. 4.

way too soft, it almost looks like a photocopy

Way too washed out. :( And are you saying you have no soul? I don't understand the title tie-in.

very nice composition & expression

I like the title. I wish it was a little sharper and a little more contrast would have been nice as well... but nice job!

a little soft on the focus
