A repost...

I'd put a softer shot up of Dave (it'll bne in the mods soon) earlier and my mate Dougie suggested a darker, more brooding shot would be better.

So I went back to the TIFF and had a play, came up with this darker version - more in keeping with the mood of the shot maybe?

Anway - it's a make shipft snoot on the left, reflector as background and dave just looking down - not really regretting anything except letting me take his portrait again!

Cheers to the people who posted comments before - hope you understand why I re-posted this

Dougie - cheers for the tip mate, put your shot in the mods if you get chance to illustrate your point

Both very good indeed. Hard to choose. No - impossible to choose, as they both have qualities I like.

Just goes to show how differently things can be done.
Top class stuff Ade.

Merry Xmas, Goggz

I really like this image Ade, particularly the gritty colour version. The lack of eye contact seems to add a whole extra dimension to this portrait - hence the title. Excellent work.

The inclusion of the extra shadow on the right has lifted this as well. This has become very much better, more feeling I think. Well done Ade it's good to rethink and not just cuff advice aside, I've seen that so often.

Man congratulations to both of you for the dedication and time consuming experimentation, it shows in your work, both of you.

All the very best enjoy the Festive Cheer,
Dougie

Far better for me Ade, I saw the mono version and thought it looked a little 'flat' and lacking in a little contrast and punch, this however has all the right ingredients ... yes, even the subject Wink Worthy of an accolade from up high too methinks!!!

Have a great time over the festivities and I'll see you in the New Year!!!

Nice, but don't like the deep shadow in the eye socket which is not so pronounced in the mono version.

The colour version has so much more impact, and I love all the shadows that really highlight all the detail in the lit areas. Well done on your EC.

Congrats on the EC, a very effective shot of Dave. I like crop and the shadow is very well used.

Good to see some colour portraits from you, not that I am not a fan of the B&W ones, but good to see something different and perhaps more honest than a blue channel conversion.

Personally I am a great fan of B&W portraiture but in this instance the colour version is IMHO a far better image, strong and with feeling.

nice side lighting & the high contrast in the colour version works well.

the loss of detail on the right adds to the shot
