Howdy,

First...my standard intro to anyone "new" to me on this forum...
My comments or suggestions below are not a criticism of you, your model, your talent or skill. I offer them in a friendly tone of voice and with the sole intent to help you with a second POV and set of eyes. If you read sincere questions and simple suggestions as "criticism" of you, then you will miss how I am trying to help you.

Of course this may be your own "style" or your own "vision" and I suppose we can assume that the images look just like they do because that is exactly how you like them. That is OK too. It just shows that there are differences of "opinion" on what looks good. IF these are exactly what you want and like, then by all means continue making your images look like that and have fun doing it. I can only speak for myself and what I do or do not find appealing in the posted photos. As I always say: "Follow your own muse."

Thanks for posting the photo here. I enjoy looking at photos and it seems like there are fewer posted now on this forum. So, don't let my comments below discourage you from posting.

That is a very nice expression shown and so a very nice portrait of a teen.

Good job!

Good shot. I like the color combination and the framing of the blue racket and blue jeans. Some parts of the shirts may appear overblown on my current screen - but that may look different on my calibrated one. Frank

I like this one, too, marti! I agree with Frank that some of his shirt might be more blown out than I would like, but his expression is really nice and the position of the tennis racket perfectly normal. I like the racket behind his head like that as it helps draw attention to his warm expression.

Nice job. Good looking subject. Two thoughts: fIrst, I'd crop some of the background away, where it gets lighter beyond the darker part. Let that darker part act as a vignette to frame him. Keeping the same aspect ratio with that crop would also get rid of what looks like a drain on the floor behind him. Second, I'd recommend against jamming the hand all the way into the pocket. I think hooking the thumb in there is a better look, but that's just me.

Here's a third thought you might consider: try a horizontal crop. It might be a stronger portrait.

^^ Good on you, Mark. Of course, now I'm curious and wanna go find all the ruckus ;-)

Anyway, I like this picture a lot. Really great expression and natural pose. I also dig the background.

Its a nice attempt but you could have maybe had a profile of him. He is standing dead straight and that isn't much fun

well from the thread that I read, his work wasn't his work. He was posting other peoples photos claiming to be his. Not sure what else happened.
