My choice for the blue, can't stop looking at this one. So soulful (and I have such a weakness for well-defined cheekbones.) Congrats on the great placing.

Another very fine portait. My fave from this FS. If I could single out a DPCers style this is very Yanko style, maybe Simms or Falc? hehe. Good luck with this one. A top10 pick.

The lighting is excellent, the model exquisite. Intense yet has a softness to the shot which contradicts the stare. Great portrait. 10

Satan has manifested before, but never quite like this. This time, he chose a method a little less dramatic than before, a departure for him. He came in the body of a youthful man, with no hints of his usual reds, or horns, or transparantly evil looks.

It was perfect this time, perfect. Nobody would suspect a thing. Nobody would... suddenly he was accosted by multiple young college students bandishing a white robe, a herder's crook, and a snap-on-halo.

Satan examined the clothing and began to feel fear and anxiety for the first time. In order to complete his disguise, he chose to forgo a good deal of his powers as well, and was almost helpless as the wardrope students dressed him in his attire, and shoved him onto the Stage.

Satan looked about in absolute horror. As an oversite of his brutally inner searching for the perfect disguise, he quite blindly missed what that disguise would be. Tears of anger, shock, and revulsion built in the corner of his eyes. He was going to play Jesus. In a STAGE PRODUCTION of all things!!

Just before his first line was to be uttered, he lifted his gaze into the air and muttered his second most famous words, "Touche, you Bastard, Touche".

The early morning papers sold hundreds more copies than usual, due to a brilliant review written about a brilliant actor that played Jesus with more fervor, faith, and energy than the character had ever been played before.

This is fanfreakingtastic. This is an excellent shot made even better by excellent pp. Great job with the eyes and bringing back the detail in just the right spots. Only area that I notice is the right ear (pictures left) probably could have had some more detail brought back as it is tell tale blur added. The hair right there could have been brought back a little more as well. That being said that is nitpicky supreme. Especially since you are getting a 10 from me. Makes my top 3 easy. If this isn't first page I will be extremely disappointed.

WOAH - he reminds me of a character in a fantasty video game. Could that jaw be more perfectly chiseled? Geeez. Terrific eyes. This is amazing.
