Tom - Congrats on the ribbon.

It is a true testament to your photographic abilities to make that ugly ol' man look good.

I guess the question is whether or not the ribbon is worth the cracked lens?

Well done!

There certainly will be more to come. I really admired this portrait - it seems to have really captured the person, as well as being technically sound. Very glad to see it ribbon.

FABULOUS! Artistry in its finest hour of portraiture!

best so far!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/17/2010 02:45:39 PM
I really wish the highlight in the eye in shadow had been in focus. Just a bit more DOF would have sent this very good portrait over into ribbon land.

Great shot... now, not to be picky, but I think it would look better if there was no catch light in his other eye... because it causes a little white dot there that is distracting... otherwise, great shot!

Excellent lighting and great choice of aperture !!! (not voting)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I really like this photo because of the emotion it portrays. The eye is nice and sharp but loses a point because I think it would have been better without the tiny reflection in the right eye (as we look at it).I'm sure you left it in for a reason though...

i like the partial lighting
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2010 10:14:43 PM
I like the strong shadows/ the use of one light.

Oh this is excellent. Love the catch light in the eye on the right. Terrific use of light and dark.
