Exploring vices and addictions. Take a BIIIIG GULP!

Model: Alex Ditch

If you don't like tattoos thats fine, but save your comments for non-inked models if all you can say is that the tattoos ruin the look. I personally have many tattoos myself and can't stand when people talk down to me because of it, so don't talk down the art because of the tattoos. Save the comment for un-inked art.

Good choice for model, I'm neutral to the argument about tattoos or not, if it makes a picture, it makes it, if not, not. In this case yes it does. You've stuck well with matching the colours with your background, thou I find it hard to find a focal point something that 'Pops' the picture.

Your photos layout has a good 1/3 rule happening but I feel I'm left with wondering, 'where or what is the unseen force that has brought him to his knees?'

This is one difficult shot you have pulled off, you don't have a lot of time when making sunset shots as well as getting the wind at your back for the smoke. I'm happy to see that the shoot was not inline with the sun either! Few-

Overall, very impressed and l was drawn to it immediately when it hit the page. I look forward to what more you can create.

Cheers, P3ACE

I love this, i actually think the tattoos add to the whole essence of the photograph. Beautiful work with the lighting, smoke, scenery, and model.

Nice composition, and it's got some terrific lighting there - creates some great areas of high contrast, and the smoke looks great, frames the face and brings more attention to it. The locale where you took the photo fits the model PERFECTLY too, with the tagging in the background there. Just a terrific photo here.

This is a really neat shot!
Frankly, I think this looks very professional, and the way you captured the smoke is amazing.
The pose and concept are both stunning, and the lighting is very powerful. :nod:

I have nothing to critique! :D
