I like the light sepia tones, and the "clutter" that he works with. Rather than being distracting, I find it adds to the charm of the shot.

Nice shot - bird blends a bit with background, but his expression is nice.

What a great picture. Such expression, reality and honesty. Like the tone you picked, fits it well.

I would have liked to have seen an image of him working, instead of looking into the camera. Anywho, good shot, nice use of sepia. The depth of field is sufficient for this shot :) Maybe try and get more of a range of colors in the final result

The content of this shot is wonderful but too distorted

Not sure I like the composition here. I feel like he should be given more headroom or perhaps less.

It might be easier to see the sculpture if it weren't placed in front of another piece of wood.

dont you hate chopping off the head pity would have scored a point more for the whole head still a 6
03/11/2009 02:39:57 AM
Good subject and location.

He seems to have been caught by surprise with makes me the viewer feel a little anxious. I would have preferred a more 'posed' pose I guess.
03/11/2009 01:24:23 AM
Nice portrait in context.
