I may be wrong, but I suspect that this one won't create quite such a polarised response as my last wedding shot ;-)
Definitely looks more natural than the previous shot... a great portrait!
Very nice. To me it has the perfect depth of field and you have done a great job with that background. The eyes really make it for me. Nothing distracting in this one and a perfect portrait.
Oh fine - this guy looks like a boy inside a adult. Fine deep colorcontrast, excelent composition. And yes, you're right: I absolute like this one, but the previous wasn't mine. Anyway, I like discussing and talking around techniques, suggestions and inspirations like here. Thats what i prefer, not as always the same comments: "stunning, awesome, nice". Hope you understand me, Cheers!
Very cool portrait... amazing detail...
What is in the background?
Stunning, awesome, nice... :) I'm technically challenged... I know...
He noticed you :P I like how background is diffused and the corners are dark. Its like a "vignetting" effect.
His eyes against the green background goes really well and I like the very dark tone in the photo. Yet it is very bright in the areas needed. The 5dmkII is working well, I see. :)
I too was immediately struck by the foreground / background subtle contrast/relationship. And I also see you solved the softness problem with an f4.0. :) well done!
His hairs a mess, his tie isn't straight, he hasnt shaved. He's a right mess.
but thats NOT your fault is it Dave! Lol.
How sharp is it at 100% and any chance you processing this in B&W?
nice portrait and lovely colors !
I like it. Reminds me of a cousin. He's got a "Aw you caught me." and a "I'm trying to hold back a big old grin even though I want to appear gruff." He's total mischief.
Interesting portrait. The eyes are very nice, thought not what I initially liked about the shot. I love the impish look he has on his face, as though he's been caught up to no good. Very nice contrast in the shot, though I may have lightened the background just the tiniest bit, only because you lose a little bit of detail in the nice suit he appears to have just thrown on.
I like this. The black background versus the very well lit face is great. I never seem to process faces and achieve the tone I'm after.
Wow, nice portrait
I have enjoyed this entire series from the wedding. All have captured great moments, and after all, that is the purpose of wedding photography.
Quite the expression!
superbe portrait !
nice portrait !
bravo vraiment un baux portrait
