Magnificent in every way, though I agree about the 'Normal' version. It does absolutely no justice whatsoever to the perfect DOF.
Beautifully composed image.
Cheers,
Janet

This guy could make a career out of modelling I'm sure if only he could come to the UK and meet a decent photographer, the sharpness around his chin and the sudden drop off to blur gives a slightly 3D effect which makes me unable to decide if it looks great or weird like his head was attached to his hand and added after as a layer? not sure? but hey more good than bad so have a click.

Pooch.

This model is becoming famous. I like the shot and the depth to the model's eyes. I see someone who has lived a hard life. I see someone who has grown up in a broken home with strife. I see someone who knows the depth of life through hard knocks. Determination, ambition and a will power to change circumstances. All that in one capture.

Great shot!
Kevin.

HI Koen
Having been to the national portrait exhibtion today and getting a feel for what they like, I urge you to enter next year with this shot or similar. You must get a large high quality print made. As you are in Thailland if you send me the file I'll get it printed and enter it for you. Its so right..........
