The expert version of this image can be seen on my Flickr stream. It is IMHO a much better version than this one, which I went back and edited to comply with the Advanced ruleset.

This is a great photo - the lighting makes it dramatic and interesting. My only complaint is the halo of light around the left side of the hood. This seems like an accident of post production (like in selecting the hood and lightening it, part of the wall was accidentally selected and lightened as well). Other than that it's really well done.


I intentionally put the 'halo' in to provide some separation with the background. The version I published to my Flickr account is the better one and didn't suffer this problem.

Pretentious! Nice lighting though.

Absolutely compelling in a gritty way. The yummy abs don't hurt this image either!
