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

fabulous sharpness on this..
much prefer the color version.
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.
Very good indeed this one
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,
way good shot, I see deep regret in this face!
colour version shows more emotion for me
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 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!!!
No doubt in my mind, the darker version is my favourite.
Regrets - - I've had a few - - - -
but then I say, not in a shy way - - -
Oh No, much more than that - - - -
Have a gr8 Christmas, Ade - - we WILL get to meet up in 2008
That is a fantastic image. quality is very good and the emotion is very convincing.
looks like he's been on the town again
The colour version gives the contrast and skin tones. Well done Ade
Always godda make Dave look dark and brooding I think - the soft look just doens't work !
cheers Dougie - I'll listen to your wisdom any time and take it on board, anyone who's spent a life taking photos and made a living from it gets my ear and respect, it's what I wanna do
Was hoping to see you at Ade's studio do Fran - sort something out soon then. In lancs over Xmas, but probably very little internet access.
Merry xmas all
yep, it's better
very good Ade, great differences.
Nice, but don't like the deep shadow in the eye socket which is not so pronounced in the mono version.

... I have wisdom beyond my years
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.
fantastic lift from the shadows to high (almost) high key! , have a goodun mate
Wow - Dave's gonna have a really big head now you know Pete, 2 EC's with his mug on them!
Cheers - a lovely Xmas present and one that money can't buy... apparently
great shot of the man have a Merry Christmas
Fantastic texture from brilliant lighting. I like the crop too. The model has the look of Kevin Spacey. Congrats on the EC Ade - well deserved.
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
colour version for me,not to sure about right eye area not that I feel I need to see any eye detail just a little less shadow but hey what do I know its a brill portrait.
I just say ditto to the comments above, Superb great shot. Prefer the colour to the B&W, just a personal pref.
