    A little bump as I'd love to have a comment or 2 about this pic, I can't work out if I really like it or think it has no dynamic to it at all!

    thanks for looking.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    Im not too big of a fan. It looks like the focus is on his neck. maybe if it was infocus on his mouth or eye, I would like it better.

    Shame, I'd hoped that the facial expression would carry the poor technical aspect of the shot. It was shot without looking in the viewfinder and held somewhere around my chest level so it was a bit of a 'hit and hope' shot anyway. Thanks for the honest opinions guys, there's nothing worse than misplaced sycophancy!

    ummmm.... I had to look that one up.

    I see what you were going for here, but, for me, it comes of as if it was an accidental image while inspecting the camera.

    Keep at it. I like the idea.

    yeah, it was pretty much an accidental image really, I saw the expression, realised how fleeting it was going to be and just pressed the shutter without even looking. Maybe I'll start walking around with the viewfinder to my nose!
