My first portrait! Had a lot of fun doing this shot, and was not as easy as I thought it would be, given just one light source and working in the dark.

Thanks for all the votes and comments! This site is very addictive...

Here is a different "godfather". My father in law drove 45mins dressed up in his best suit to take this picture. He's the sweetest man you will ever meet, and I had a hard time getting the smile off his face, and act like a tough guy. :)

Thank You very much! :) I tried to decipher "PB", but I can't think of anything. What does it mean? :)


Personal Best.

Congrats on the ribbon!
I can't believe after getting your father in law to drive out for the shoot you didn't choose that image! Both would have ribboned I expect.

Image invokes the feel of the film for anybody upon even a glance. Good job with the image. It's dark enough to obscure the true identity of the individual and surroundings with enough light to enhance the duality/hidden nature of the type of individual portrayed in these films.

Great job with the lighting, closing, and expression. All works as a perfect fit.

More of a CEO but great tribute

Outstanding image! I figure this to be a ribbon! Good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice! Most of the time, the dark shadows would be horrible on an image, but here... IT WORKS!
The image is nicely composed. I like that it is not completely centered, the slight imbalance works to the photo's advantage. The tones are perfectly done. The image is perfectly executed! I LOVE IT! A favorite of the challenge, for sure. 10 all the way!
02/27/2012 12:03:48 PM
Love the lighting on this, and now it's time for a Godfather marathon!

One of the best images of this challenge. Just a little too dark IMHO

Love the black on black on black, suits the movie so well
