Way underrated. This was one of my top picks. Composition is excellent and definitely meets the challenge. Very well done!

I thought this was worth far more than it placed. I like it a lot - you woz robbed!

Awesome shot, I think the blurriness of it adds rather than detracts from the impact

i think you know how much potential this shot had. It is unfortunate that the focus turned out a bit softer than you would have liked. I would unsharp mask this with an outrageous radius...like 25 at 200%. it would bring less attention to the out of focus writing and more attention to the eyes. though that processing is an acquired taste and definitely not for this site.

Would be great, but I think there's camera shake in this.

Yes, a good environmental portrait. Wish the focus was a wee bit sharper, but I like the composition and colours.
