I really wanted to shoot for this today, but since I was at work I had a limited amount of time. Enviro portrait, and while it's not technically stupendous I was stoked. It was fun to play with, and fun to shoot.

The customers even got into the action. It was a blast. I had a new sweater, have lost 50 pounds in the last year, and by gum I was gonna enjoy this one.

Note- nuts, forgot to check my ISO first. Ah well. Please note, new sweater. :)

I would certainly put my full trust with you and know you will not mislead. The friendly and helpful expression is testament to this truth. Bump.

While very easily meeting the challenge, I find the red cast and exposure of the image detracts from the quality of the image, leaving it noisy and forcing the surrounding items to compete directly with the main subject. Unlike some images where the photographer is incidental or minimized in the overall presentation, this one unfortunately seems that it should be predominant, but is lost in the shadows and other incidentals.

A bit more light (perhaps a diffused flash)to eliminate shadows and red cast, a closer crop to eliminate some of the cameras and a bit of rotation to straighten out the shelving in the background.

apologies: Score: 2

Nice Idea, but colors seem yellowed and overall focus seems soft.

You have a great job! Nice smile, beautiful eyes - very good portrait that shares at least a bit of who you are.

yes...do you have a Nikon 80-200 2.8 VR?

I am not sure if the lighting is flattering in this because the definition in your chin has disappeared

It looks like you have one noisy sweater. Must be warm.
