Very James Dean. This is an excellent portrait because it shows us something of the person in it. I hope it does well. 9

I like this shot, he feels like he's rough around the edges, like he's got an interesting past.

Yep. 'e looks like a cowboy, or a model for a cigarette commercial.

Interesting shot--seems pretty squished on the right side...

He looks like someone from the 50's, very retro.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

There's something about this that I like but I can't put my finger on it. My first thought before really studying it was James Dean. :~)

I'm getting a James Dean type thing going here, composition is well done.

Very James Dean. Like the back lighting.

Composition is rather strange. Color treatment is nice with good DOF and preservation of details.

Interesting profile shot. Wish he didn't have his hand up though; That's a little distracting, IMO.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 11:38:11 AM
Like the over-the-sholder POV.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 09:00:53 AM
His hand looks plastic... don't get the title
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 08:24:22 AM
The detail on his skin is great. Nice backlighting too :-)

Did they have digital cameras in the 70's? Cool shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 04:02:34 PM
Very nice portrait. Excellent use of natural lighting. Did you use a fill card to light the side of his face toward us, or is it just awesome light overall... Haha, nice.

I really like the texture of this photo. I do wish that I could see the eye a little better though.

Voted earlier coming back to leave comments now. This is a great portrait of this man...from the side profile you present to us he has a little of the James Dean look going. The portrait captures a casual relaxed look such that it does not appear posed at all and it might not be. Either way posed or casual capture the main subject is easy and relaxed in front the the camera and his pose appears completely natural. He is relaxed with his hand casually holding on the cig he has take puffs from. He looks over to study something that the viewer just can't see. It seems to hold his attention as he studies it and it leaves us, the viewers, to wonder just what it is that has captured his attention. Lighting and focus are excellent. I like the B&W but I think the tonal range could use a boost so the differences between the light and dark areas are more dynamic and visually pop more. Other than that this is a great portrait.

Very good photo but the title could be better.

This is nice. Very European. I wonder if it is a candid or posed???

Looks like a picture from the 70's

Well done

Lots of character in this face! Very western-looking and very reminiscent of James Dean. Well done! 8

good grief this almost looks like James Dean...this particular angle isn't as appealing as it could be...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 11:59:42 AM
the tones match the title and feel of the image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 08:05:47 AM
To me just a regular portrait. Nothing that really pops to me.

Nice profile shot. I like the light.
