I just thought that it is a chance for me to tell everyone how stressful it is even on a tiny island such as SG. It is only at night that the world has slow down its pace for you to recharge yourself. However, the next day of work awaits you and the cycle continues.

Many thanks to my friend, Howai, who took time off his busy schedule for the shoot.

Good ad quality.

Interesting idea, but person is too indistinct from the background. I didn't even realize the person was there at first, because the lighting draws one's attention immediately to the bottle. If the person had just a bit more light and were separated from the background distinctly, this would be very strong.

good shot of a vodka bottle, but that's it.

Great ad shot for Absolut. My question, how does the environment define the subject and how is the subject interacting with the environment? What story is being told?

I think I'd like to see a bit more of the silhouette in the BG...

Portrait, according to Merriam-Webster: a pictorial representation of a person usually showing the face

I find it very hard to find the portrait here I'm afraid.

Very cool shot. I wish I could see the person just a hint more. Lighting is amazing, as well as the white powdery glow at the base of the bottle. Color on the bottle with not color in the background is great too. I'd like a little more human presence for an environmental portrait.

Looks more like an advert then a portrait. I like the composition and lighting though
