Forgotten Soldier II

This is the second photo of Tony, a homeless man from Bristol, UK. Tony is a veteran of the Falklands War and has never been able to deal with its aftermath.


Given it's freezing at the moment I hope he's doing ok.

Re: Forgotten Soldier II

Excellent portrait

I like the natural feel that this one has. For me, more effective that the ones that you show us with the various effects that you so skilfully apply.

Re: Forgotten Soldier II

Yes, this is a great portrait.

I like the light and his look very much, fits very well together.

Re: Forgotten Soldier II

Great face an processing.
For me the face does look a little detached from anything.
What surrounds his face is neither two dark not to be seen or
Not bright enough to be part of the face. if this makes any sense.
I don't do portraits so this is not an crit. More a feeling.

Might be talking buncum.

Bet it looks great as b&w
So much character.

Re: Forgotten Soldier II

Really excellent portrait. one can feel the pain of this mans post traumatic stress syndrome. I think it would come across even better in B&W. He is just one of so many ex-service suffering from wars and the government does not want to know or care.

Re: Forgotten Soldier II

i agree with Fitz while the face looks fabulous and full of character m it is very detached , I would certainly look at bringing some detail back into he bottom of the frame

I can see detail in the bottom of the frame. The two tone blue jacket with the black collar and a stud or hook and eye fitting by the neckline of the collar. Also a black top underneath the jacket.

Re: Forgotten Soldier II

Was looking on my IPad which may have darkened the image a bit.
I see the blue shirt better as well as the coller but on the laptop
there is still something about the shadows round the shoulders and
lower half that I find distracting.
I do love it though.

Re: Forgotten Soldier II

Worked it out.
Remember the cat photo where the block behind it was the same colour as the cats tail.

Were the shadow on the left shoulder is pitch black it looks to me like it forms part of the coller.
I tried to do an edit to show what i see but was to dark to dodge.
On my IPad I couldn't tell where the darkness ended and the coller began.
