Nothing like a December self-portrait to inspire a New Year's resolution to lose weight!
I now begin to wonder if I have ever seen any photo of yourself before!?!?
It seems like I have not - or have you grown a beard on you?
And hey, it is just the beard and the coat!
I really like the stark contrasts and crisp detail here!
Very nice Matt.
Everything works great for me in this one. Pose, composition, contrast, bg. :thumbsup:
I usually grow a beard for the winter.
I ran unsharp mask at 500% and radius 3 to really tweak the local contrast. Up close it's sort of coarse and gritty.
Dang, Matt. You're a father of two, you're not supposed to look like a stud now.
This image is full of masculinity for me: I like this rough-hewn background, your pose, the contrast, and especially the tortured-artist/sexy professor-type expression - it's all working here, baybay. Really good one. :thumbup:
Terri, you made my day, but believe me, in real life I look like yer average Joe who's run ragged by two munchkins, approaching 40, and eats too much junk food. My wife says this photo reminds her of a Johnny Cash album cover.
ha ha!! That's classic. :thumbup:
My assessment stands.
