    This guy is passionate about fire fighting, so....

    Available light, 100mm lens.

    As always, critique invited.

    Thanks!

    Great environmental portrait Pete, well done.

    I think the face could be a little brighter or maybe just a little less of a ratio.

    Strong shot. Love the environment. Maybe brighten the face slightly. The clenched fist is a no no in my book.

    Love & Bass.

    Thanks, Mike. Thanks, Craig.

    I agree. The ratio is a bit strong on the face. Thank you both for taking time to comment. You too, bigboi3.

    Really? An open hand is a no no in my book. Closing the hand makes it smaller and avoids a "spider" look. Hmmmm. Thanks again.

    Interesting... A clenched fist to me indicates tension and worry. Small hands are no good. Personally all of my shots rely on the models hands. Generally I use hands to point to the eyes.

    Nice shot, but the focus looks a little soft.
