I think this is one of the most powerful and beautifully executed self-portraits I've seen. This really has a lot of emotion and is exceptionally well presented. You've really got a lot of talent...

I like the pose and the framing you choosed, doing it on a self shot is always no so easy.

Great masterful lighting by a very promising member who is exploiting the best in lighting and poses with variable moods. Bump.

I like this photo. The high contrast and subject makes the mood seem pensive.

Outsdanding choice of lighting, pose, and post-processing. Comp works well. One of the best in this challenge, IMO.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/06/2005 07:06:54 PM
The light works perfectly here. The composition with the elbows like this makes it look very masculine. Yanik?

Very evocative. Excellent tones on the skin and the blue light really adds to the mood.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 05:07:58 PM
Wonderful shot, yet I am not sure it reflects a blue mood..but it is languid and well shot and very appealing in a suble blue tone...8

This challenge is full of snapshots, but not this, very well done (10)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice photograph, with interesting lighting. Looks very similiar to the new Victorias Secert ads. Almost the same exact lighting technique. Most of the images in this challenge that attempt to capture an emotion or set a mood, have failed. This one is nice. I like the very dark mysterious shadows, and the body language says a lot about the mood. Very nicely done. Good luck <6>

my favorite out of the thumbnails!! Good Luck 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2005 06:35:54 AM
good toning and expression; composition is a little unbalanced with the right arm cropped off and that much space on the frame's right side
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2005 03:08:23 AM
a shade of "Nico"blue? :)

nice take. excellent crop. too soft/neat imaged for my tastes (either that or you're made of plastic). i like the high key exposure...the highlights are blown, but not in a way that detracts. negative space in the top right corner is perfect.

well done.

Nice. There are some jaggies on the left arm from sharpening? I guess it is a blue expression, but hard to tell. A little destortion on the subjects left. 7
