No title

Critique away...

I quite liked this chap so I decided to put my lens in his face. It's meant to have a military feel, flag in the background, some tents...

Re: No title

Not so keen on this one sorry BC. Not quite sure why - maybe cos the first thing I though of when I saw it was 'a fat hitler'

Re: No title

Like it BC. I like the way the lighting, coming from behind, really lifts him from the background, also like the PP, he looks quite sinister. If I was really picky I would remove the stray fibre from behind his left shoulder, every time I looks at it I want to pick it off.

Re: No title

I wasn't sure to leave the fibre or not. In one way it adds to the sharpness but overall it is distracting i think.

Can't change the association you make with Adolf Azz, sure he was only just a bit misunderstood that's all! To me this guy is going to give you a hard time in the Army. It's a moustache typical of many Army folk. Hitlers was about a third of the size in the middle!

Re: No title

Love this picture.

It's the PP and comp that give it a sort of old (40's) "war photographer" feel about the whole picture and if that is what you set out to do, I think you got it spot-on.

Re: No title

Great composition with the background, reminds me of a First World War soldier, like the PP too.
