I think the composition could be better: more space on our left side and less on our right side, and the pink shirt could be desaturated... but... the face is perfect, sharpness, contrast, emotion in the eyes...
I agree with Olivier.. but even though I like the shot I vote Contra because, like Olivier and some others, I see the flaws and therefore cannot hold it up as an exceptional image or the Gallery ceases to be a Gallery of exceptional images, if it hasn't already. Regards, Paul.
well I agree with Oliver too, but I totally agree. So I also come to a Pro. There has been worse pictures getting a pro, so this one should too. Here it is just hard since it is such a good photo not to mention what could have been done to make it even better.... ;)
Thanks so much for this gallery acceptance! I actually thought the pink shirt added to the image (otherwise I know how to get rid of it:)..I liked the pink against the harshness of his face. But I don't mind criticism!
Pop Photography magazine called me recently and said this would be in their October issue, so I am very pleased with that recognition as well. Thanks to all who voted Pro (and for all comments) Much appreciation!
Thank you Robert :) Yes, I shoot from the hip (or the heart) rarely from the head and my motivation is one of creative expression and hopefully an image that evokes a connection with the viewer .. I thought this man had an amazing face and I wanted to capture it and share it with others who may also 'see' the reason that I took the picture ..to share that vision. I think most artist/photographers , such as yourself, will intuitively understand this.
Thanks again for taking the time to comment.
