In reply to:

fastprime: Ezra, my suggestion to make this shot more interesting would be to position a beautiful (nude) Icelandic female model on the ice, standing tiptoe with arms outstretched above her head. That should satisfy all the critics who find the shot uninteresting!

...why not 'a beautiful (nude) Icelandic' male model on the ice for a change of planet's Eath orbit.... #_#

On RATED R: Bug's Version in the fankenlens challenge (10 comments in total)

Love it. Close enough and personal. Great photo, congratulations.
Percy2, judging for the complementary comments your are receiving, you are due for a whole article on Photography Techniques, DIY and Photo Experiments on reverse lenses, macro and extension tubes. Just an idea. :)

In reply to:

Wildbegonia: I will never guess you are the same author of entry # 27 Locky in this challenge, which is a stunning portrait and far of 'high quality' (whatever this means for voters) and craftsmanship. In MO, Locky should had got a higher spot. So having said this, this entry has been treated excessively in pp and added unnatural coloring (almost hurts the viewr's eyes), specially in the area which is the soul of the portrait: The eyes.

My apologies. I did not intended to suggest that it should be changed. I would not change it or touch a hair in this image either. It is as the artists intended to be so.

gazzajb,
See? I am very sorry, but I had the blessing of being in Australia and in touch with aboriginal Australians, discover their culture and more specially studied their Art. The rendering of the photo did not reviled the subject as an aboriginal contemporary Australia to me.
And yes, the interpretation is a matter of opinion.

Wildbegonia: Very nice portrait, speaks volumes of the sitter's character. Well crafted too. Sad it did not placed better. Love the result given by the use of a macro lens, and how it captured the light in the eyes.

Simply stunning.....

Beautiful portrait. Congratulations, sad did not get a better spot. There are as many definitions of what a portrait is as people who voted here. Love the fact that you did not resourced to excessive HDR to make great.
