Good strong frame filling portrait. Even don't mind the name - it is tiny and outside the picture area. To be picky - slight bit of burning in needed to right of head.
Your opinion is appreciated,i don't normally mind put names. Thanks
Welcome to EPZ Salah.
This is a very nice shot, full of the personality of the subject.
I dont know what your shot settings were, - next time you load a shot for critique make sure you click the EXIF options box so we can see them all. It allows us to provide a more constructive critique.
From what I see however, you used a shallow aperture which blurs the background nicely; and it appers you may have been quite close to the subject at the same time, as to my eyes it looks like theres a small amount of barrel distortion in the face which exaggerates some features. This is a guess without the exif details. You may have intended the distortion also.
So working on my assumptions, I have loaded a mod with a little barrel distortion correction, removed that small blue area behind his ear, sharpened the eyes a little, and performed a threshold and curves adjustment in Photoshop CS4 that corrects colour balance. Ive also cropped some space from the top to move his eyes, which are mesmerizing, onto a third.
I hope you find this feedback, and the mod helpful,
Your feedback is valued and helpful, thanks for your interest.The difficulty I've faced is in convincing the man to allowed me to take this shot, you may notice that he is angry a bit, but his anger has increased some value to the shot.
I apologize for any mistakes in writing in English
Its the expression, - that of anger that makes this shot work so very well, - really good. As is your English.
