The dramatic rembrandt lighting looks great in this. I think it's cropped too tight on the feet though. Very cool self portrait regardless.

I really like the lighting and the pitch black backround.

This is a very strong image and i quite like it. I'd have to agree with MA though, I'd have liked to see the boots here.
Thanks for sharing that link Benjamin and good luck!

Quite a strong emotional image Benjamin. Very nicely done, and good luck in the competition.

This is a strong image, and can see why it was chosen as a finalist. I like that you cant see his face - it leaves the viewer to guess what is going through in his mind.

Thank you also for the link. You have some tough competition, there are some confronting and emotional images there. Good luck

I can't really add to what's already been said other than to add another voice to the crowd. Well done! :thumbup:
