In a split second of the image appearing I jump and find myself caught in a deadlock in the midst of his penetrating gaze.... Staring at his pearly smooth skin and his pale eyes my clutter of thoughts seem to evanescence. Everything about him is utterly mysterious and mesmerizing..... even though I know nothing of his identity or his origin. Well done, definitely a shot worth sharing.
There aren't any more in depth comments on this? I'm commenting then!
I think the EXPRESSION in this is AMAZING! The detail caught in his face with the lighting is fabulous! It's partly because of the fantastic expression in the doll, but the technique in the photography is also amazing! The way you've kept it dark and let some things have a highlight. It is so tough but there is an underlying sense of emotion in it. SO expressive of what many boys feel. They put up this tough front but underneath there are other things...other pains. It's fantastic! I especially love that there is a small hint of a shimmer by the eye as though there may be a tear. It's simply breathtaking. MUCH deserved DD for sure!
