Loved the blue!
amazing blue eyes jill. this is a fabulous portrait. makes me want to know him and his life story.
You've caught one of those wonderful expressions again, Jill. Just excellent....as is the technical quality of the photograph.
P.S I bet Patricia will say that it's your best ever
Was next-door...saw this thumnail...knew immediately it was you!
Exceptional! Your best! Even better than your EC I think...scared to say more in case I jinx it...SUPERB!!!!
I'm taking a couple of days off...desperatly need to catch up on my work, but I'll pop back for my morning coffee-mate!
Can you do nothing wrong! This is superb again.
Just a note to say that when I put LOL on my comments I mean "lots of love", not that I am laughing out loud!!!
speechless. The image suggests the person has a warm and gentle personality. Well done.
We are looking for a house to renovate and he lived in the one we looked at yesterday and yes he does have a warm and gentle personality, and the amount of pets he had and the love he showed for them just made my day!
This is a great portrait, Jill.
Oustanding. I love the light and detail. This one is one of the best I've seen. Really stunning
Lovely portrait Jill. I particularly like the way you've focused on his eyes while everything behind is slightly out of focus. Nicely done.
Great character study!
VERY nice work Jill, I love it!.Click
Tangled up in blue! Can't wait for the results to materialise. Like this as usual though its not as natural as it might be.
Goodmorning Garden Route... nice one 'though maybe not so tightly cropped? That hat looks as though it might have been fun! I shall have to rub the sleepy dust from my eyes and come back to it in a minute while I upload my Ghost Tree.
Didn't even crop it at all, just took it like that...ghost tree sounds appealing!
Oh, I did put a little frame around it!
OK, my eyes are a little more open now and a strong coffee is sloshing around in my veins making me feel a lot less blurry than his eyes look. He looks even better now... thank you for your coment on the Ghost Tree... it was cold that day/early morning and I had the hood down. I remember there was trouble with condensation on the camera as I took it out of its warm, cozy case.
I took the picture indoors without using flash so the light is not quite natural but i liked the effect, brought out the blue more.
Kepp the flash in its case.... you don't need it and I hate it. Never used it in my life. Sorry, I tell a lie. It's useful sometimes outdoors with backlight when shooting black skin. Brings out some of the detail that otherwise would disappear.
I also hate the flash and never use it!
Superb Jill, wonderful colours to the portrait and the blue rim of his hat really brings out the colour of his eyes.
Like this very much Jill, Superb work.
Beautiful portrait - has real emotion, and the colours are great too. Always a pleasure.
Nice crisp portrait shot with good detail and colour.
This is a brilliant portrait.
Those eyes tell a story. Great shot. Klicked. K.
The eyes - windows to the soul...beautifully captured. And i love all the other blues too (the hat, the wall, the shirt...)!
What a great face to photograph and perfectly photographed it is. good work Jill.
Another face that says 'a life well lived'. Beautiful.
What a great capture, really good expression . Click
Oh, I knew this was yours from the thumbnail! This is just wonderful!
Wonderful face, wonderfully taken, well done Jill.
Beautifly captured Jill,great clarity.
the BIGGEST wow from me --- you continue to impress me with the most amazing portraits- --
man,i wanna meet you some day
You can't fool us. This has sugarbird written all over it, even as a thumbnail. Great colours textures and a lovely crop -Rab
Super detail in a face full of character.
yummy pic hon.
hi jill, had to come back to this one.
you must have a really good way with people for them to pose with you like this. you manage to achieve really natural portraits time after time - never awkward or contrived.
there are so many characters i see in the street but never have the courage to ask to take their photo, and instead i hide behind my telephoto lens and snap from far away! maybe this is a european - or british! - thing. maybe it's just down to a difference in photographer character.
anyway, really love your portraits - they're awe inspiring.
Great character with a face that tells a story. Good light and lovely open tones. I would have liked a little less depth of field so that the marks in the background were more out of focus - you could still do this by selecting the background and applying a gausian blur.
Again, so very intense, what a portrait, Jill, thanx, click (*:*)
Thanks paul, i thought of that but always mess my pics up when I fiddle too much so left it, and than you all too, it is one of my favourites.
Excellent portrait. Love it. CLICK.
Thanks all, and sweetdreams!
This is perfect portraiture. I think that's all I can say really. It's hard to elaborate on perfect. I love the colours in your work.
Lovely portrait of a really character full face.
Reaches deep inside. This is so good so I'll not spoil it with words.
Great portrait. Love the eyes and the stubble.
A face that has been lived in for along time. Beautiful image
Well worth an EC. The 2nd of many more to come me thinks.
Well done, Jill. This was inevitable. It's just such an extremely good photo.
Jill this is superb, and so is your portfolio!! Well done on yet another great EC. You are using that camera really well, the colours and the detail!! Do you have any tips for me as i have the same camera (for example this shot, what settings did you use?) i know it doesn't help livin in grey england!!
Cheers and Click

Congrats on the well deserved EC Jill. It is a super shot.
