I know i will be nailed here because people won't see how this fits to the challenge. It does, but it's not as clear maybe. I always loved superman as a kid and my dream was to be able to fly like he does. So that's how it kinda fits in. Plus, he is a fictional character. Fantasy need not only be "lord of the Rings". Bottom line is that really...i just wanted to take this shot. This photo is also a kind of tribute to Alex Ross who is a comic artist. This shot was inspired by one of his drawings. You can google him and find his artwrok everywhere. If i knew how to make links, i would...but i don'y. Sorry. Hope you guys like the photograph. AlexRoss

Greetings from the Critique Club

Congratulations on your splendid finish in the Fantasy Challenge. Since you scored so well, it would be redundant of me to dwell on your image and tell you the same things your many commentors already have.

So, I will move on to the next image in the queue, but not before telling you that since you are learning at warp speed, (from 5.2 to 7.2 in 5 Challenges) why not think about coming on board the Critique Club! Your expertise would be welcome.

Excellent shot, very dramatic and inspiring. I would have liked to see this with a pair of Clark Kent glasses on.

01/27/2006 03:04:15 AM
Hehe, I knew I was bound to see some of these. This is just really great! The composition, the lighting, contrast, sharpness/focus...all perfect! I can find nothing wrong.

01/26/2006 11:23:08 PM
Nice!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2006 10:38:21 PM
Sweet image. But isn't the chest shield a bit too large? LOL! Great look of concern in his eyes too!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2006 05:30:06 PM
This is just great. Very well composed and the Idea is phenominal (10)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2006 05:17:23 PM
Amazing sharpness. So far this looks to be one of the more technically sound pictures. There isn't much grain, and everything in it works. Good Job. and plus, who wouldn't want to be Superman?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

:-) This was my husband's halloween costume last year! Good lighting on this shot and the colors really stand out. Nice looking model too!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Look... at the top of the page... it's a bird, it's a plane... it's a ribbon! So well composed and technically flawless. Super job! I give it a 9.5 only because you forgot the signature curl in the forehead. Thanks to rounding though, you still get a 10. ;-)

Definitely my fantasy

Is that you Clark? Geat shot, Love it. 10

01/24/2006 07:26:10 AM
The way you have done this makes it look like Superman it about to step out from the image, well done.....powerful.....
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Macho man. Nice work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/24/2006 06:34:08 AM
Very nice use of negative spaces, I love the composition. The whole implementation is like exposing the dreams, revealing something under the cover of our souls. Exposition is also excellent, and I also like the little bit nervous face. Good luck in this challenge, one of my favourites!

I love it! Great colour. I love the completely black background. Great job! 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2006 01:25:57 PM
I'm disappointed 2 Supermen and no Wonder Woman :-( Fun shot and well executed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2006 01:14:39 PM
Totally black picture is no picture because black is not a picture subject, picture is to tell a story, but black is good as a shadow in picture not more than 3-20% of picture for me if it goes over 50% it is not a picture in my mind, but portrait and idea is really good so you get 3 points

p.s. This black background is getting really boring here on this sight
01/23/2006 07:38:35 AM
Very good. 10
