Shot this by holding camera out with my hand tourist style. Put my face in the sun out my window put a -2 ev and took a few shots.

I hope anti smokers dont make this into an issue. Maybe I should title it 'cancer awaits' or something cheesy like that

Oh Panos I thought this was very cool and I would have expected it to finish higher. I love how the sun is highlighting just part of your face (great clarity btw for a hand-held shot) and the cigarette really enhances the noir-like feel. Now on to the anti-smoking part of my message... :P

Great shot!

A good demonstration of how to use natural lighting to set mood and create a provacative image. The transitions are perfect and it's a good use of both subject and space. Well done.

Nice job with the lighting, used well to add mystery; this makes me want to grow my beard again. 8

I can hear that spaghetti western music playing in the background. I love that tiny glint of light in his right eye (our left). Cool shadow and use of negative space. I like it.

Excellent example of how lighting can create a mood, and really direct the eye. Love it. Can't decide if a tiny bit more light on his left eye (just a glint) might have added a bit of mystery.
