Portrait of one of those boys, kind of typical young boy without undermining the fact that each and everyone is special. I like the crisp cold look of this portrait, taken on a rather cold February morning in Reykjavík.

First I used Lighroom for the "Bleach Bypass" color creative and then I cropped a bit, made a tiny color adjustment, before exporting to PS: levels, curves, frame, then I resized the image, sharpened and saved for the web.

Haunting portrait. Powerful. Processing is superb. I'll be back to hopefully get some tips on how you did this.

I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives:This is a flat out wonderful portrait, I like the honesty of it. The light and composition are perfect, as is the depth of field. I really like the cool muted coloration, it matches the overall image very nicely indeed.

Critical stuff: Nothing

Overall: Perfectly judged in every respect.

Beautiful portrait. I love the clarity of it, as if you could count every straw of hair. His eyes, his lips, and the blue t-shirt in combination with the other colors. Very nice.

I can actually see his hair blowing in the wind. This picture breathes. Lovely!
