Daily Deviation

Given 2006-01-05
Brilliant portrait from technical aspects including composition and perfect exposure to the emotive feel generated by the model's crossed arms and expression. Contemplating Revolution by =Katerina423 ( Suggested by JeanVoyage and Featured by scottb )
:icondhaundre:
I really like this deviation for a lot of reasons. The first one is the subject itself. His definition is perfect and the black backgroud helps a lot for that purpose. In the portrait world you have contributed with a ver good vision and technique. When you see it for the first time you get caughted by the shot. It has depth, and the aire on the right helps the spectator to understand better his look. He must be admiring an artwork for his pose and expression. The skin tones are very well ballanced and the front light helps the silhouette to become better defined. I see thousands of portraits a week and it's very hard to be original in this area. You've done it.
It's natural but deep in the same time, and because of this I think that it has 5 stars on Impact. It totally gets your attention at first sight.
What do you think?

I Like it! It reminds me of Mapletrophe's ones. The style is almost the same. The pose, the hands and the details are quite expressive and I like it!

slam that shit baby

bay area spoken word represent!

Beautyful portrait, the slightest highlight along the left side of his back and boxers makes for standing out, easy to look at.

Wonderful job! Can't remember who said it, but I agree that the tattoo is awesome. Just that look of contemplation on his face. ^_^ Absolutely perfect. Great job once again, and by the way, I agree, Damon does rock.

Ciao. ^_~

He's a beautiful model, and I also love his features. they make the image, I think. the cornrows and the glasses make him look restrained, but the fact he's showing his upper body and he has quite a large tattoo on his arm also give him a sort of "not to be messed with" vibe. it's almost like he's conflicted slightly.

compared to the other commenters, I'm afraid I'm not quite as poetic, but I agree with them all, that this is one of the best portraits I have seen in ages. I'm glad you got a DD, I love to check out photographers.... they inspire me.

I don't mind late replies - lately I have been really bad and not replied for a week...

normally I reply within a day so it's subjective, I guess.
