    Kind...intelligent...they say eyes ARE the window to the soul! I should have titled this, Ready for Beaver Tails! (a little Ottawa joke for Lo and Mepo) or maybe Hiding the Smile while admiring the Snowman!

    I didn't think this was a Jihadist - given the kindly, intelligent eyes - in fact I rather suspected a play on an all too familiar name.......??

    Great shot as always Jade O!! You are great at the portrait type shot.... always seem to capture a very sincere moment.

    This was my #2 and I'm surprised it didn't place higher. I hope the title had nothing to do with it - it certainly didn't bother me.

    Maybe the title, but I would guess also the colour, too. But mostly, I think it's mostly just the votes!

    Jade. I had this as #4. Maybe your title put a few voters off. My reference to cyclists was in relation to your previous bicycle entries. I kew it was your entry the oment I saw it LOL - Please consider that a compliment.

    Thanks, Alberto. I played with various crops but liked this better than the closer view.

Thanks, LaRee. I wanted a title with dramatic punch to match the image and this is what came to mind... maybe not the best choice but couldn't think of a better one.

Thanks, Lo. I liked the full colour better than the toned black and white (see outtakes.)

    I'd have rated this one higher if you had emphasized the visible portion of his face...Perhaps with a closer view...

    This is a well executed image. I don't like the title much, but I always look at the titles as an after thought anyway.

    Very detailed for such low light. An excellent portrait, with interesting shadows

    I knew I should have entered that piano in the well shot! Always nice to know why someone doesn't like an entry; thanks Old Finn!

    Otherways a nice picture, but in my opinion, the face does not fill the idea of low key.

    raf I'll probably flub the next one though, LOL!

el I thought the same. I debated about toning done the highlights while leaving the eyes - I'll post in outtakes.

    could have entered this in the next one as well. Works well.

    probably would do better in next challenge for eyes.
i think what is distracting me is the intensity of the light on the face.

    Mepo Or perhaps priest, or black ops member, or...

f_otto As I admire your photographic skill, I'm especially honoured to have your top ranking. Nothing about Jihadists are funny to me, either.

    I had the same idea. Glad I didn't enter it because this is far superior. Love the way you have organized the lighting and the detail in the eyes. The slight tilt of the head and the pattern of the scarf are nice touches. Why is it that I get the impression that this guy is a cyclist rather than a Jihadist?

    The caption was not funny, my #1.
