I just knew when this came up that it was going to be yours - and I was right! Terrific shot. Love that guy's expression. Great job and not a bad finish, either!

Ok, I went and searched it. Guess I displayed my ignorance, didn't I? (I wear my ignorance proudly.)

Awesome portrait Steve. You're becoming like the new Irene or Timfy or something these days! Kick butt, take names.

I thought this was yours. Really underrated, congrats on top 10 nevertheless.

well done on the top 10 Steve. Never did get around to voting, so sorry for that. This has such a lot of character. Love it. Loved the reference to Weegee.

Something about this told me it could be yours. A well deserved high score, though it should have ribboned. I need to ask, is Weegee this guy's name?

awesome!! congrats on a very well deserved top 10! This is such an awesome shot!

The angle doesn't feel very tilted, so I worry whether people are being harsh on you (portrait would have probably worked better.)

Personally, I think the angle works fine, and I think it's an extremely interesting photo! -9-

Oh man! This is FABULOUS! What an edgy, a-MAZING portrait and work of art! It is perfection for this type of portrait! 10

Fabulous shot - slightly bothered by the halo-ish appearance around the hat but a great, great shot nonetheless.

Great expression.

I want to be able to do people shots this well someday. Faving this one and giving it a very high vote. I'll be interested in the details of this shot.

That's pretty neat. You could have probably called "leading lines" too ;) Excellent portrait. 9

Its all good and you deserve a bonus point for working weegee into your title. :)

Haven't got round to voting yet, but this jumped out to me. Got a feeling it's Pawdrix.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/27/2009 10:43:47 AM
could have even added Portrait with this. excellent choice...really like this in B&W

Superior - I generally dislike both centered comps & tilts, but this is really great. His face is so expressive, and you captured him well. (The white of his eyes are a little too white for me - I'd prefer if they blended a bit like his shirt color, but perhaps it was the eyes that drew me in to begin with)

Fantastic portrait. My favorite. 10.

I like a sense of humor. The photo is great too. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/26/2009 12:18:39 PM
not sure i agree with tilted angle. you could have simple added portrait instead. still, i like it and so 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/26/2009 08:38:36 AM
excellent portrait, perfect focus, DOF and b/w conversion. the tilt is too slight to be mentioned, but as you have "portrait" as a further technique I'll only deduct 1 of 10.

Reminds me of Buster Keeton with a little Pablo Picasso thrown in. This is great.
