    Most of these are extremely well done! A few have sharpness issues especially in the eyes which is a pet peeve, but the majority are excellent!

    Why are these images well done?
    - The images suggest or tell a story or reveal something about the subject.
    - Very few distracting elements in the images
    - For the most part good exposures and decent composition.

    here are just a few of the many images that i find excellent

    I think you did pick out some of the better ones, I liked most but I also found some not to my liking or just a few issues with some but just in a nitpicking way lol.

    This one stood out for me:
    http://www.interesno.dn.ua/images/st..._08/34homo.jpg

    The composition is awesome, the focus, the man's expression, and his eyes stand out more than anything, I can almost see pain in them, like he feels helpless.

    A lot of those photos were awesome; showed me some things that I can do with my photos too, that I hadn't thought of before. Usually I turn the hue way up, but by pulling hue and saturation down a notch, it gives the photos a different feel.

    I'm not entirely sure what was done to the shot but quite a lot of post processing was done here. I'd guess that extra noise was added and some major sharpening was used..but I could be way off here.

    anyone else care to opine?

    Some of these shots were from Joey Lawrence. He has some excellent work that can be found here http://joeyl.com/

    He used to be very active in the forums at DPChallenge.com http://dpchallenge.com/profile.php?USER_ID=25397 and he described his post production techniques a time or two. Alot if it is lighting, similar to Dave Hill, then after dodging and burning applying Local Contrast Enhancement. He now sells a DVD tutorial for about $300. http://tutorial.joeyl.com/
