The lone male contemplates the meaning of liff while keeping his eyes closed, frustrating the photographer who wants to see an eye with a catch light.

Re: REALLY Bad Portraits Competition.

YOU can stick your EXIF where the sun don't shine girl...

I'm telling you, that's a REALLY bad macro if ever I saw one.

I'll see you behind the bike shed in half an hour...handbag at the ready!

FIGHT...FIGHT....FIGHT!

Thanks, Nick.

I can't sell it as stock, it was a candid and I haven't got model releases.

Re: REALLY Bad Portraits Competition.



Since - sniff - ths was deemed to not be a landscape, I thought I'd enter it here.



The viewer is asked to copntemplate this portrate on many levels. There is the Nod to The Scream, and then there is the concept of Food as Man and man as food. There isd the inate violence of the image with the maw screaming and the cauliflower, I mean broccoli ears.

(If we have a really bad Still Life Comp I'll bung it in there.)

WELL ! since it is not a Landscape but a Portrait it is indeed a grand entry for a Portrait! Such a grand conceptual piece of art I have not seen in many a year, nay more than 6 decades ! 'tis grand

... ps what are you on ? ...
