A very cool sk8er guy I met on a shooting (TV shoot) in eastern Serbia, he fit in this scene so well so I asked him to sit down so I could snap some photos. I used lensbaby cause I wanted to get this hallucinogenic feel to the photo.

Peripheral vision is a part of vision that occurs outside the very center of gaze. There is a broad set of non-central points in the field of view that is included in the notion of peripheral vision. "Far peripheral" vision exists at the edges of the field of view, "mid-peripheral" vision exists in the middle of the field of view, and "near-peripheral", sometimes referred to as "paracentral" vision, exists adjacent to the center of gaze.

You have such a way with the treatment of colors. You are an LB master.

This only works so well cos your LB is on acid (man).

I really like this one, great atmosphere, great hat and expression, good use of out of focus areas (taken with lensbaby?). Maybe crop a bit of the left green area ?

Now that's creative, well done

Cool image, lot of interesting pieces that lead your eye around & to the face.

Between the hat (Alice in Wonderland), the colors (particularly the green) and the subject's face (kind of looks like Keanu Reeves) it has this 'Matrix' theme happening.

The selective focus works nice here, too - which can't always be said of images that employ that vehicle. This is a nice image overall - good luck! -- 8 --

Love the dream like quality to the focus areas. Great job forcing the eye to the face!

I like the blur you added. At least I'm assuming that's mainly PP blur, but it could be a filter. The strong lighting works in this picture. 7

beautiful colour, fun juxtaposition. Really like how the hats and lampshades all rhyme with each other, repeating the shapes around the scene and the final patch of red on the right playing off the hat and the green on the hat playing with the green wall behind. Even the style of the chair works well with the hat shape, so many pieces that hold this together so well
