    I don't know but the mag line is cutting the photo in half.. and the text is too busy it draws away from the eyes of the person.. also it looks like hes looking over the mag and or reading the very center of it.

    I think you should have the camera a little further back and the magazine lower and look at the text on either side, because you lok like you're looking at the middle.

    and maybe try doing it in 100% black and white so it relates to the articles named on the cover lol

    My experience judging from what people read at work on the production floor at their workstations, never judge a magazine by it's cover. The cover is very easy to remove and place on a different magazine :mrgreen:

    Yea, could be a centerfold spread, not necessarily a Nikon :mrgreen:

    Haha seriously it was a center spread of a canon 5D :p nah but it was a center spread for some ad. It felt right when I took the picture but I guess it does look a tad off.

    AND it does relate to the front cover! Duotones:D

    I think it works simiply because it's a black and white photo with a story on the cover of the mag about black and white photography.

    I like it. It tells me what the subject is thinking.

    I love it.

    And yet something seems off (not what other people have said). Can't quite put my finger on it. Hmmmm....
