    Very nice. The high camera angle gives this a "fresh" look. I'm not sure how I feel about the eyes (all of them) falling on the same diagonal. Maybe I'm just over thinking it.

    My initial reaction is.. NICE!

    I thought the same thing...after the fact of course :( still I don't think it's detracting too much; luckily they are slightly off plane otherwise it would be 'planely' obvious :lol: :er:

    thanks for your comment archangel. wally shares his action freely; just can't remember where I got it; mebbe PM him if yer interested. Or i could send it. :)

    I'm not sure about the eyes being in a line, but them being fairly centered vertically feels a bit off-balance. I don't think cropping down helps much though, as the camera is pulled too far back for copping into his head to work well.

    Hmm... the crop seems a bit tight on the right too. Perhaps with the square format and the eyes centered vertically, it would work with them centered horizontally as well, if it were retaken.

    With this one, perhaps cropping so all edges are equally as tight.

    This is really sweet, love the tones and the feeling from the shot, especially love the expression on the guys face, looks so sincere!

    i was just about to comment on the alignment of the eyes. I think it works quite well.
