Very nice shot. However ... is this really 'fill flash'? It looks like 100% studio lighting to me? Maybe I just don't understand the term 'fill flash' ... anyway, very nice photograph. Congrats!

For pities sake someone PLEASE stick some duct tape over his lens to level the playing field .... still bet gyaban would end up shooting a winner with that handicap

Thanks :-)
All I can say is that DPC is a fantastic place to learn photography. Just look at my very first photos on my flickr account... I was proud of them at the time! ;-)

Wow dude, very nice. Really becoming a fan of your work.

Another blue for gyaban? Great lighting, my pick for Blue.

You're going to ribbon again, aren't you? Perhaps I will learn how to manipulate light this well eventually.

You seem to be on a roll lately with regards to creativity (and self-portraits). I expect once again for this to be top 5, maybe a ribbon. You have too much time on your hands!

Front page again Christophe!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/11/2010 12:31:06 PM
This is one seriously hot dude!!! Awesome work as usual. The lighting is dramatic and delicious. The highlights on the jacket add interest to the dark right, and the patterned and shiny helmet to the left. Subtle fill is killer. Front page. As usual :-)

I would have saved this one for the FS. This is not an example of fill flash in my Opinion, but a great example of flash
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Superb lighting in all respects. Should ribbon. My favorite in this challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I'm not a lover of fill flash personally, but this certainly has a professional edge. Looks like an ad photo in a glossy mens' magazine. Well done.

I like the concept , a couple of little niggles that hurts the score , the visor could have been cleaner , the chin strap hidden better and a little sharper on the models face , the overall shape and balance in the picture is good.
