I think the story is pretty much evident here.

I quite like your shot, I am not sure if it is on topic, but that is not so important to me. It is my highest rated shot in this challenge so far. You have certainly captured a very 'human' moment. His forehead is slightly overexposed, but none the less excellent job.

Superb-- 9

Excellent detail, great contrast.

I have seen "Homeless" before your photograph, comparing them, I perceive that the other model looks confused, almost frightened, that moves you into thinking about desolation. But your model and picture transmit very strongly the ideas of attention, preparation, hunting, but not quite desolation: 9

great detail! the contrast is a little hot in spots, but overall it is a very moving photo.

Another shot that makes me think "lonely". Nice composition and contrast. Great DOF as well.

Powerful picture, well done! Fits the challenge perfectly. ~10

This one is definitely teetering on a 10! The lighting seems just a bit harsh on the forehead -- otherwise, it's awesome.

Tough shot.. I would have cropped this shot just above the eyebrows to avoid the overexposed forehead, but that's me.
08/14/2003 03:19:27 PM
Lighting is too harsh for me but I love the content and composition/ close range is absolutely superb.
08/14/2003 02:31:45 PM
Nice and sharp, i wish you had caught some smoke from the cigarette. But very good work.

Nice portrait. A lot of feeling there. Good job.
08/14/2003 12:35:45 PM
good shot

All faces tell a story ...I love to photgraph faces the best by far..especially children and the elderly..this is wonderful...the face tells of a life time of experiences both good and bad....good job

Don't Bogart that joint, my friend. Doesn't do desolation for me, though
08/13/2003 05:10:59 PM
Fabulous Shot.
08/13/2003 02:42:52 PM
very nice portrait
08/13/2003 02:24:26 PM
Very nice especially the eyes and brows. Focus and sharpness are spot on.
08/13/2003 01:31:46 PM
You couldn't have found a more downtrodden looking gentleman! The lighting on his face is a wonderful compliment to the overall composition of the picture...great job!! :)
08/13/2003 09:14:49 AM
this is a wonderful portrait...I personally don't read the mood as desolate but rather an intense thought process and there's a detachment that I respond to. Fine shot.
08/13/2003 08:34:36 AM
yes, there are many untold stories in this face. beautiful shot!
08/13/2003 12:38:49 AM
Yes there are thousands stories to be told from his face. Excellent shot. Good use od monotone. I like the horizon glid background too.
