Fine bl/w job on this double portrait, itself part of a two-piece. I like the positioning of the father. Much of the focus is on him, very, very sharp...but he seems to decline and rather push his son forward to take center stage. This is a shot about generations, the wheel of life.
Cheers from Antwerp.

This is a great one as well, more conventional than the last one (which I loved as well) but a beautiful shot. The quality of detail and light and contrast are perfectly managed and a lesson in natural portraiture. This is of such a high standard as it not only is technically brilliant..but more importantly, it conveys a feeling, an emotional response.

Salgado... you know that brazilian photographer, who made a shocking serie of black and white portraits from the gold mine in Brazil. That's what this photo reminds me. Again an uppercut, but somehow more accessible for the people at large than your previous work. The shaved heads and the intense contrasts combined with the density of the skin details: sweat, dirt, give a harsh feeling, that seems quite close to the sensation we get in front of war photographies. Strong work. Congratulations.

carrying on my train of thought from my previous comment, here's another good example of "shadow management".
I like very much how the light reveals and hides here in this photo - it shows the essential and leaves the rest to the viewer's imagination and perception.
the eyes are beautifully hinted at, enough to feel them gazing into our direction (well, yours :) )
(slowly catching up with comments and replies...)

A fine image dear Sayeed...radical, yes, but kind of grabbing us to look into the kids eyes. The father's eyes, though in shade, glistens with affection, as if he's proudly showing his son to you! I cannot imagine this in colour & the high contrast indeed brings out the best in this shot!
PS : Thanks for your comments on my Benaras post! It did take me some time & quite a few shots to realise this image...yes, some thought had of course gone behind it...idea was a different type of framing, keeping the spirit of Benaras as well. Your comments are important for me & since you liked that image, I take it as a successful experiment! Thanks again! Unfortunately only a few people understood what I tried there, let alone the result. ;-)
