Man, it is hard to do what the man(' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Librodo) does. This will probably crash and burn.

This is Shakir. He was a trooper. It was freezing and he did this with no shirt on.

Maybe a little overboard with the editing, Thats what i get for leaving it to the last minute.

Well I rec'vd my vote from Manny and I must say, that it is bang on with what the pic deserves. I went out on a limb to do something different and it is paying off with the members but this is definitely not something Manny would do.
I focused on the editing aspects of Mannys works as opposed to subject matter.

Currently sitting at 7.0ish

Thx to Max, Cammie and my niece , Camryn for helping.
Thx for the votes and comments

Congrats on the fp finish, and for your help. You DID tell me so :-)

i wish it is my style. but i couldn't see myself doing this. i wish.:) but this is a very good one though I don't really like the blurring. is it allowed in advanced editing. or maybe this was not blurred in photoshop but was captured on cam. bumped up 8/10

This is excellent. I love the muted colors with the pops of red and blue and his eye is very captivating. The smokey background with the deep blacks on one end and bright white on the other combined with everything else makes this really stand out. One of my three 10's. Good luck.

Second male other than my own. Awesome shot. You nailed the eye.

As I write this, it occurs to me that the image MIGHT be Manny's, in which case you would HAVE to nail the eye. Of course, it's not necessarily Manny's image, in which case... never mind. Carry on.

Librodo effect is certainly evident... I like the reduced saturation. I would like to see the tattoo on his right arm to be in focus too. And also, the focus on the face is sharp. I can see how you have blurred the rest of the image to lay emphasis on the eye. But, IMO it is slightly overdone and as a result, the blur does not smoothly transitio from the sharper areas.

I am sure this image does well in this challenge.

Doesn't really strike me as a librodo image, but the portrait is absolutely fantastic! Very emotional and powerful 8
