One of the first shots with my D80. It's kind of noisy because I accidently dialed in -2EV. Luckily I was playing with RAW so I was able to recover a decent shot out of it. I know there's lots of technicals to nit pick but my wife absolutley loves this one so I thought I would share my Hidden Gem,

He has a nice genuine smile. The photo is a little soft, but I do like the black and white.

Nice focus on the eyes. I would have cropped the image so that his face was in the center of the frame.

Nice soft finish. Good pose and catch lights in the eyes.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great eyes. Cute smile. Nice lighting, though a bit hot on cheeks and nose. Definitely a sense of "presence"

Nice portrait but too soft. (too much neatimage?)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 11:00:03 AM
Good composition. Maybe just a little bright on his cheeks/nose.

little less exposure on cheeks and nose maybe? IMO
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 08:08:24 AM
Nice portrait. Maybe needs to be a little darker to ease the highlights on the cheeks and nose.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Not sure what it is but it looks a little oversharpened.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 01:22:55 PM

Great b/w portrait.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 08:38:05 PM
the focus is a bit off...im not sure if the skin really is that smooth, but i think you went a bit overboard with the processing, im sure he has pores in real life
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 06:06:32 PM
Not sure if it was the post processing or the in camera noise reduction, but the image feels rather soft. Details in the hair seem lost and the eyes look very deep, but definition is also a bit lost. That being said, this is a nice portrait with a good DOF.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 01:57:45 PM
Nice portrait. There is something about the eyes that really makes me keep looking at the photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 01:05:12 PM
Good lighting, wish focus was a little sharper on the face.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 11:04:16 AM
nice portrait, great composition, but a little soft and over exposed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

So loving.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 02:33:15 AM
Cute as a button, a good "snap", perhaps too "snappy" for the average DPC voters
