OREN by spyed OREN by spyed
one of my best friends. he's from Israel, speaks with an extremely enjoyable accent and... thanks to me, he likes to say "dude!" with a high exclamation and it's just so funny every time he says it. :P anyway, I really liked this photo. I take a lot of photos but I submit very few and I felt like this was deviantART worthy.

OREN by $spyed - This is a real classic close-up photo with a great expression. It reminds me of those celebrity close ups when they glance over their shoulder and give you this kind of a look. The framing, composition and the focus is well done here. Its nice to see that the busy guy running this great site does find time to contribute such wonderful art as well. Thank you for sharing this ! ( Featured by hellfirediva )

This photograph really seems to capture the personality of your model; there's something about the close-contact feel to this that makes it almost seem as if he is standing in front of me at this very moment, haha! His eyes really draw me in too. Wonderful portrait :heart:

I like this picture very much. He has a nice face, which must make him very conducive to good picture-taking. :)

Beautiful picture! I don't like all the pessimistic comments people give you for this; I think it's gorgeous and definitely deserved a DD! He's very handsome, and has eyes I wish I could have. :thumbsup: Good for you! :hug:

Though it's DD-edness is questionable (at least, that's what I'm seeing), this is a decent shot, and he does look pretty handsome.

Ah well to me a DD it's like a feature from a gallery director for everyone to see, not a prize or anything, just as if some random deviant featured art in their journals or news article hehe...plus the fact that we all see art in our own way. Probably I'm wrong with this statement, who knows.

As for the picture I like the closeup and the light, whenever I take a pic of my face it looks so shiny and what not so I'd have to use some powder or I don't know what to get rid of the shine xD...anyway...I'd like to say those are beautiful, strong and expressive eyes :)

Well, I know DD are subjective anyway.

On technical points, the framing is too close, too central.

Nice work here. :) I disagree with everyone who says this doesn't deserve a DD; this picture says "beautiful" and "real" at the same time. Sometimes our ordinary lives and the people in them are the things that need to be photographed the most.

Looks good. Nice composition too.

I think the depth of field should be extended slightly as his eyes aren't in sharp focus. And they would really make the picture pop more if they were (imo)

Well, the focus is off (which is the most important element in portrait photography) and while the lighting isn't bad it isn't anywhere near remarkable either. So as portraits go, this is average at best.
