Seems to have been a pretty sucessful shoot on thursday after all - was quite shocked to see that my mug has gained another EC... well done Dave.
His mug got me a HC so I guess that makes me the better looking
This is one I prefer to the last post I put up - there's more to the eyes on this one, that steely look into the smoke ring as he fills his lungs for the 53rd time to get another blob of smoke ready.
Also like the triangular comp of the arm-hand-cigar-eyes.
Make of it what you will, and only an EC will mean that Dave's as good lookin' as me
Was doing a calendar shoot for Bowland Fresh dairies today... bit it's pi$$ing down over there so back to base!

A really great portrait. Fantastic lighting, great expression and the ring..........
Fantastic ! nuff said
Great portrait again.Nice use of the lighting and the cigar.Cracker.
dont need any EC to make me better looking than you ade lol..
People like you cause yar cute so thay say anyway..
Your around at a party to up the awae factor
Me i'm there to throw out the yobs
Reliable,mena and moody dave with a soft centre
deserves another hc,great shot adian
can't fault this, the lighting is spot-on
yeah yeah yeah
I usually have an effect on parties, and it's not an "awww" factor...
were there any yobs needing throwng out at Rowardennan? Lots of yobs I know...
you were not there so the answers no
I think you are going to go one better with this one, an outstanding shot and spot on processing.
I like this a lot. Great lighting, well captured.
Great image again Ade, looks great and a good piece of photography.
yeah like this one .
u know u r gonna get a whole bunch of "non" smokers giving you a lecture now!! LOL
Now that is cool. Lovely work from the both of you.
Great lighting Ade. Like the way Dave's eye seems to be focussed on the smoke ring. Cool as a mountain stream!
Never could do that, doubt if I will now. We all think you're handsome Ade in a dark sort of way.
All the very best
I've got a shot of a ring inside a ring from the night as well - the rest of the smoke screws it up though, can't see much of the "model"
I am a non-smoker who has an occasional cigar - so PLEASE, no lectures
ah well the cactus is making an appearance tomorrow mate..
Preview available at a selcted location
hopefully it doesn't look to much like gay S+M!
PM the location
Great shot,iam sure i can see the devils face in the smoke ring,( ex smoker)
Excellent shot with fantastic lighting - and a practised smoke ring if ever I saw one!
I could make comments about Daves' ring and puffs..................but I wont
wow! Now this IS COOL!

That'd be me then!!
Scrub all soft and pink, Mr Wilson, you can't fool me!!
Prefer the close-ups - - guess you weren't brave enough to title it Dave's Rings . . . . .
(the one on his little finger and the smoke one, of course!!)
Quote: People like you cause yar cute
LOL! Ahem. Yeah, tis true - softy he is.
Nicely done Ade - made him look scary
it's not hard Judi! he has a naturally menacing pose! makes a good shot too.
....just read Fran's contribution...
the reailty and the photo are very very different!
Well done Ade
Ta Pete - glad you like it!
First shot I edited from the shoot - with dave sat watching oddly enough.
Can;'t condone smoking to anyone, but they make good shots if you can get the lighting right.
May have a few more yet....
thought so! congrats on the ec.
Whats the light set up?
Great shot. Great lighting. Great skin tones & texture. Surprised he managed to get the cigar back in his mouth before the smoke ring had drifted out of shot. Were they really in the same shot?
Good to see a fellow smoker. Pipeman myself.
softbox to the left - about 12 inches from Dave and brolly to the right a long way off just filling in a bit
very similar to me last one and dave's shot of me... oddly enough!
Superb mono, well done lad
Ta Rog - it's a skill that either Dave has with cigars, or I have with PS that made this possible...
you get the perfect pose for a shot - but maybe the surroundings are wrong. with these mono backdrops you can modify things to your advantage.
arr yes.. so it is... had to look though.
if it ain't broke, don't fix it
had red and green gels on the flashes earlier... that was just wierd
the greens worked well on daves head though
Well done mate, shame about the subject ... but a great exposure and take all the same!!!
Congrats on the award too.
well i am good looking enough for it then lol
Wel done mate
Well done on the EC Ade
you two have outdone yourselves.. i saw dave's first and i'm not sure whose i prefer.. both great!!
Superb tones and lighting. Well done
Fantastic shot! Congrats on RC & EC awards.
Ace work - congrats.
excellent lighting and the rings fab
excellent portrait mind you on a critique not I would have cloned that tiny white speck out on his hand and the one above his right eyebrow
yes I am nitpicking lol
ohh i like this.
