i think it could have been amazing if the photo of the dad was staring straight ahead. Would have improved the mimick to a larger extent. It is a nice photo however.

This is a really great embodiment of the challenge and I think your reinterpretation of the shot by the other photographer is excellent! Congrats on your ribbon

Each time I see this on the front page... the more I like It! I really think this is an amazing capture... it's one of those that I wished I had taken, and probably one that I will try in the future! good inspiration. if I were to critique I would wish that the backgound blur was maybe just a slight touch cleaner. The current DOF really seperates the photo from ur pops( and that is good!) but for some reason I would like just a bit more detail on the man that he is now... about 4.??ish instead of 2.8 maybe? I think he looks like a good man. (& he looks a little bit like Bill Clinton could look in a few years)

A perfect blend of yesterday and today. Fabulous feelings evoked, though none of the sadness that often accompanies time frame photo essays. Beautiful.

Good capture, although I am not sure what is that white band around the man's ear in the BG?

There's nothing inferior about it, it's a beautiful image and will be a wonderful memory. I think you've used your Dad before in a challenge, he has a very photogenic face. Many congrats on your first ribbon, Iraklis.

I would have placed the older face in the forefront but I guess the challenge says Before and After.

I LOVE this photo. It's excellent. *faves*

A perfect 10.

Creative, innovative, excellently executed, great DOF.

Hope you get a ribbon.

The focus and concept here is great!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/15/2008 12:06:47 PM
Even though he is out of focus, you can really see the resemblance.

Edit Bumping to a 10. Top 3 pick.

12/13/2008 08:08:04 PM
Fantastic shot, best of the votes from me so far (OK, only done 7 so far, but i'm sure it should do well!)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2008 05:32:06 PM
Very nice
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2008 01:06:04 PM
this is a winner... the expressions in both pics work well. so much to look forward to, and then so much to reflect on.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2008 06:56:16 AM
excellent focus and DOF, well cropped, like the toning. lighting of the background could be enhanced, the shadow at left distracts
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2008 12:24:19 AM
Well...I don't know. I kinda feel bad not giving it a 10 as it's a great photo and a great idea. It's just not jumping out at me. Screw it: 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/12/2008 10:21:45 PM
Beautifully composed. He doesn't look happy (now) which suggests there's a story here. One of my top picks so far.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/12/2008 03:38:23 PM
Expertly done-- tone, DOF, and feeling. I think this is one of those pictures that doesn't need a title. Good luck!

Top job on the DOF. The print appears to jump out at you. Great shot.

WELL DONE
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2008 10:56:17 PM
Clever way to show this concept. I love the fact that the modern dad is out of focus!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2008 03:46:53 PM
There's a lot to like: the sepia, DOF, square crop. The only thing that's bothering me is the dodge on the lower left side of his face. Wait, this is Basic, that can't be a dodge ... must have been the lighting. Still, wonderful entry!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2008 02:58:35 PM
Nice use of DoF & really intresting idea
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2008 11:53:10 AM
Wow, very nice portrait. I love the use of DOF, it really makes the picture powerful. I also like it in black and white. There's kind of a white shadow behind his right ear, but I'm not one to nitpick on little things like that. Awesome photo, very well executed. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2008 11:01:20 AM
Nice composition, tones and DOF. It meets the challenge perfectly.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2008 09:24:31 AM
I'd like to see a version of this where "old" dad is in focus as well to see if I liked that better.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2008 08:54:16 AM
Very nicely done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2008 08:48:00 AM
I love the concept of this photo.
The only thing that bugs me about it (its a personal thing) is that I would have preferred the photo to be out of focus and the man in focus. Since the man represents the present and the photo is the past. I still gave this a 8
