    This as the title says is my friends shoulder! He's wearing a jacket and I think he looks a lot like an army guy from a long time ago! What do you happy people think?

    Hey thanks guys, Yea I like the mood it gives from the darkness as well.

    This was actually in very well lit room, but it had quite a low ceiling, and he was standing over a spotlight. So I just increased the shutter speed, and came out with a few that I liked!

    It looks to me like loneliness. It's like the subject is needing for a hand on the shoulder to let him know it's going to be okay. Just my opinion....I like it a lot.

    I like it a lot and the use of negative space, it has a sense of lonliness as Hobbes said, but it works well! I sense the making of a series ;)

    Nice work yo! I honestly didn't like it too much at first, but it growing on me as I come back to it! The negative space really does add a lot and it works in this case!

    Well, we just climbed into this house to take some pictures, its not a completely restored house (his parents own it) and the key didnt work, so we got pretty dusty for the sake of art!
