Challenge: Calendar II (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Nikon D80
Lens: Nikon AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR
Date: Feb 18, 2009
Aperture: f/7.1

Shutter: 1/80
Date Uploaded: Feb 21, 2009

I know I will probably get comments saying how this doesn't represent the month of February, so I'll just explain here - The calendar I'm envisioning is one where there are portrayals of famous characters from movies placed on the month that the respective movie was released. So in this case, the character is Alex DeLarge, from A Clockwork Orange which was released in February of 1972.

The model is my friend, Shirin. She wanted to do a photoshoot so we brainstormed and came up with this theme, and it worked pretty well with the theme (at least to me it did ;)).

fldave - thank you for your comments! I really need to work on portraits - I didn't actually crop this photo, I just tend to take very close up portraits. I think I need to adjust my screen brightness/calibration because this photo doesnt seem so dark to me. I checked on other computers though, and it is wayyyy darker than it is on my screen, so thank you!

mchalmers - That photo just blew me away..I feel a wave of inspiration ;)

I gave this a 4, so here are my thoughts... as a portrait, the crop is excessive. I would try to not cut off body parts. The lighting is too dark, even for an "ultra-violent" movie like A Clockwork Orange (which I have watched many times, demented person that I am.)

I like the idea for the shot and applaud your creativity, but without a title, there really is no connection to February to the average viewer.

Little too dark lighten the eyes a little more.

I don't much see the movie character, this photo is frightening i would have used grayscale.

Good image. Lighting is little off. I would like to see little bit deatils on the dark side of the face.

I'm sorry, doesn't do a lot for me. I'm finding the crop through the point of the chin very awkward.

as I said in another photo that had a female facial portrait in it...pluck them brows (this from a hairdresser)...the eye should be framed by a beautiful brow...otherwise a little dark for me

Seems a bit dark, but then so is Clockwork Orange. I tried to watch it once and was only able to sit through about 1/2 of it. Not my style.
