No its not HDR!!
Thanx for the comment
10/17/2006 11:52:35 AM
Isn't this a High Dynamic Range photograph? I didn't think we where allowed to use HDR techniques in contests?

It's a damn great picture though. and if it isn't an HDR photograph. then jesus christ man. I don't know how the hell you got it so perfect but you are a god among gods and I bow to you as a great photographer.(weather it's HDR or not)

Keep up the great work.

One of those perfect, ready-made situations which has to be grabbed when you have the chance but - wow! - this photographer has sure made the most of it and turned an easily photographed situation into a masterpiece. Maybe a little more detail in those shadows and a slight lift all over would possibly improve it but not certain about this without seeing result!
Well done!! If I could vote I'd give it 10/10.

Great reflection. I love the moody colors. Excellent picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/15/2006 09:40:02 AM
superb. the leading lines work very well, bringing the eye to the man. the exposure and compostion are spot on. as with many ohters in this challenge, we can fill in the story, as we can't see his face. and you have created an image with fascinating story potential.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I'll bet this doing well - seems like just what DPC wants to see. A great take on the challenge.

I expected, that there are many photos in this challenge, where the face is covered by the hands. But this is the first shot so far, where doing so really makes sense. Well done and good luck in the challenge!
