I think this photo should have done alot better. I like the framing and subject. He could have lost his job or his wife left him. He sure looks like he is feeling blue. There is a tad bit of pink tint to the picture, but I kind of like it because of the effect it gives at the top of the photo. It looks like the stress he is exserting.(sp)

nice composition, and dingy grays. the wall doesn't look straight to me. kinda like it's coming down over his head. which kind of works. 9

Needs to be in better focus. Not light enough, Don't like the cropping. Crowded into the bottom left corner. PTL 4

This does not have enough contrast -- the color (well, the grays) are all too similar to make this pop out. Also, I would try cropping out the doorknob if possible. It really distracts for some reason. muckpond

A wee bit dark.

Composition isn't very good, and the balance of white and black is bad.

Good subject for blue - but you need to zoom in on the person, make it a bit lighter, clearer.

Wish there was more detail in this photo, I liked the idea and composition

Is this your rendition of the Poloroid commercial?

I think that this photo could be improved if you increased the contrast to make the man stand out stronger against the background!

10... my first

I would have tried pushing up the contrast if possible, it all looks about the same grey to me. I wish you could see the expression on his face, as it is he could have been just sleeping... The little knob on the left I would have tried to crop out, and also, I would have left less blank space at the top.
