I've always loved that ole fashioned look to portraits, I know many will hate this, but still don't want to please the masses, really!
I took this soon after my son woke up, sometimes the just woken up look needs to be photographed. Hence his gaze.


The soft look is intentional.

As a teenager and then an adult with some problems waking up in the morning, I can only sympathize. And parents fiddling around with cameras (in my dad's case, with fishing nets and rods, at 5 in the morning) do not help :D A wonderful very true portrait. Good Job!

I gave this a 7 as I felt it was beautifully done. Glad to see you're true to yourself when entering challenges too.

You really ought to consider ticking this quoted comment as helpful, Anita. It's a perfect (though unconscious, I grant you) appreciation of the photograph isn't it? Out of focus, badly lit and rather be elsewhere are all surely the very point of your Ode to Eleven.

It's a splendid, three-dimensional picture, a picture with some purpose, just as the quoted commenter has pointed out.

A transitional portrait. Good.

Now this is (intentionally) very clever. The uncertainty, contradiction and innocence of the age is perfectly represented in your sympathetic treatment. Your picture is a fine example of when and why convention can be profitably ditched. It's in my top three picks, and damned with the faint praise of the Order of the Thumb. Thank you.

I like the soft focus and heavy contrast.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Focus is way too soft on this one, not sure if that's what you were going for?

I do like the PP here, has a polaroid fell to it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I think it is a great portrait but, most likely, will not score high as it is not a studio shot with perfect lighting

I LOVE that this seems like a fortuitous glance into prepubescent angst. Marvelous image, Anita.
