My best one yet, in my opinion. :) (Smile)

dude, I love this one...
Somehow reminds of some school-time dork/loser (so like me).
Love it!

I have enjoyed this whole series. The expression of the character in this picture seems like a mix of nervousness, paranoia and fear. The placement of the bowler hat is ...puzzling. To me at least. The thing that really freaks me out though, is just how much your model looks like a guy I once had a thing for...the resemblence is amazing!

There seems to be so many things going on at once that it's priceless.
It's like it's taken from a much bigger scene from a film.

I love this shot. See I have this like crazy anxiety disorder type thing...probably social anxiety or some shit like that, so anyway this just like calls out to me in that way.

That look in his eye...and the hat...like he's about to do something. He looks anxious. Anyway you captured a great shot.

i really like it. it conveys that he's afraid of something, because he holds his suitcase so close to him, yet he's relaxed enough to lay his hat beside him....

that line is used in the book "brave new world." a very creepy read, but it has some fantastic social commentary.

Great scene.. charismatic model, good pose and mimic art. It seems the shot is in a certain ballence even when the model isnt sitting in the center. The hat is an important detail... it completes the scene in my opinion.
Definitely a great shot.. I like it alot!

Yup - he looks nervous to me. Definately looks better in B+W rather than color. I like that photo as it has emotion in it.

this shot is very well done imo, i can see why you consider it your best. the look on his face mixed with the protective hold he has on his briefcase and his legs being totally together compliment each other wonderfully. the color (or lack there of) fits the clothing perfectly, and the shot is framed very nicely. the hat on the bench is also a nice touch. definitely seems like a very well thought out shot :) (Smile)

That's a nice shot! The expression, posture, even the clothes and the brief case all add to the effect.

What wonders must be floating around in this poor man's mind. What on earth gives him that stature that he holds now? Betrayal, perhaps ... loss of something? Nevertheless, this is a wonderful shot...

(oh god, said that twice =P (Razz) )

Intersting shot. He seems very curious about something, but I can't figure out what. Nice execution.
