    A buddy of mine made it onto The Rebel Billionaire and he needed some shots. I think the following shot worked out best but I need some critique to make sure I get better not worse ;-) Thanks in Advance!

    I like it.

    I wonder about:
    -fill flash - might have decreased the shadows near his eyes.

    -is he holding his tie down? Must've been windy.

    All in all a solid shot.

    I agree with James about the flash...or maybe a reflector to lighten up his face. I love the pose and the fact that he's against so much sky. Do you have any other shots? I only ask because it would be interesting to see him more to the left of the frame with a bit more room between him and the edge, to emphasize that he's looking off in the distance. This is a really great shot! :thumbsup:

    I think you are absolutely correct about the flash or maybe a golden hued reflector. I know that and I still didn't do it! DOH! I will try it again and see what I get ;-) Thanks for the comments!

    His name is Gabriel Baldinucci. He's a good friend of mine and he will be happy to know you like the show so much! Tell lots of people ;-)

    Sorry to revive an old thread, but I really wanted to see this picture!!!!

    onefastvr6, where did you go!!! If you read this, can I see the pic again? I've been ADDICTED to Rebel Billionare, and if I'm not mistaken, your friend is the one that made it almost to the very end, right?
