    I'm sorry but I really can't see anything special in this photo at all.

    Well, I haven't seen a portrait like this in a while...

    I'm not sure that's good. Sorry.

    If you want it blunt, it's simply awful. I can't find even 1 redeeming quality about it. Pose is bad, as stated above it looks like a mug shot. The lighting is way too strong.

    What was your intention with this pic? It's very unflattering to the subject.

    You should quickly put a copy right on this photo and send it to Vogue.

    I'm not going to pretend I know something I don't; The shot is awkard, stark, and harsh- And I think a very good work.

    Sometimes life is what it is. At least you have the guts to put something out there that not may fit into the common aesthetic.

    BTW, I went through some of your other posts to see what I could see- Loved that Holga double exposure.

    thanks, abraxas. i wasn't going for the standard portrait photo at all... and i intended for it to be blown out. i wanted it to be more artsy and different than conventionally pretty.

    Maybe turning it into a black and white would give a different feel to it? And trying to remove the shadow. It's a different idea, but it doesnt mean its a bad idea. People see things differently.
