This is not a portrait- at least from a traditional point of view. It is photo-art, an illustration or what ever you want to call it. It has interesting content, well saturated colour and expresses a feeling or mood that is very dramatic- It's nice and well crafted! Skilfully exicuted!
Get used to it folks- many images are really created in Photosho or other computer driven programs. This is by now means TRADITIONAL photography but is is a mixed medial type of photography. The final images is what counts.
I don't do this kind of work but I won't say I dont like it just because the imageging process is different. I like portraits ergo- I am a portrait photographer!
hi- Ed Shapiro
i really appreciate your idea
but every photographer have own way to represent the picture.
before 1 year i was like you .
even i dont touch the picutre ... but when i met some Professional photographer ..i asked about the edit !!
the answer is ..
the people who will see your photo they will ask about edit how it is ? or the beeauty of the pic .
and thanks alot for given your opinion ..
