Congratulations on your placement. You have done a wondeful job with the challenge and your subject. Honestly, I like your shot much better than mine ( above yours ). I rated it as a winner! Great Job!

Great finish. This was one of my favorites. The cigar makes the shot. ;~D

It's amazing how you set the tone and mood in this picture even though you can't see his eyes. That shows talent to me!

Great Photo! Love the smoke, really cool effect. And what a hot model!

There were a number of lens caps as glasses shots but this was by far the best executed. The somewhat de-saturated look, slight sgrunge beardm and the smoke curl complete the cool look. Cropping off the top of the cap quite so tightly detracts a little but still a top vote getter from me.

Nice photo, like the toning, captured the smoke, perfectly in focus

clever. a good clear pic
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Would make a very good portrait even without the lens caps. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/18/2006 10:17:51 PM
Would have liked to see a little more darkening overall
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I suspect this will be Top 10, possibly with a ribbon. It is certainly the best entry with lenscap-as-eyecover.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/18/2006 07:12:52 PM
clever
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Goodness, he actually does look cool doesn't he? Like hte angle of the brickwork behind - makes it even more quirky. Nice close up composition, great lighting, nice detail in the smoke. All good!

Kick-ass (cool). My second (or third) "10" thus far (and I've been through many). Good job. I love that the photo is both technically sound, and chellenge-meeting.

Great job. I really like how all of the elements come together nicely. Not only the cool guy, he looks like one of the blind village wiseman too ;)
