High Key or overexposed? Not really sure, but I'm erring on the High Key cuz I think it works. Bumping from 6 to 8.

Interesting looking man, sweet dog. The background works well here. A ten!

Nice lighting, he is much darker than the background and that makes him stand out more.
Love the dog in the basket.

Really a great shot! Good tonal range...great expression! Just a solid border would have looked better, but I am not counting off...8

01/04/2005 03:29:31 PM
Love this! It isn't posed and it is a great candid shot. Nice contrast!

Amazing capture, and perfect title. :-) I wish you had some cropping real estate to add some space to the top/left. Aside from that, simply wonderful. 9

such a nice shot, at core. Oversharpened by a great deal, to the point of producing a halo between figure and ground. the slightly off-center cropping isn't working for me; all that space on the right is not helping the picture. I wish it were a bit more centered, and especially that I could see all of the basket.

Absolutely great! What a character! Nice expression, great composition. Lighting is perfect. This could be a winner in my opinion. 9.

Very nice capture! If this were a postcard it would probably be a hot seller! What an interesting looking man, and satisfied looking dog. Great capture! Cropped well too. :)

I absolutely love this shot. Probably because it makes me think of people I know! The black and white is the perfect choice. This shot, like a few others in the challenge, actually leaves me with so many questions - wanting to know their "story". Also, I just noticed the border - classic and understated it complements the photo well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/03/2005 02:41:18 PM
Very nice, I like this shot.
Though you are probably going to get hammered by the border police :)
That will not affect my vote.
