I need more of your help! Which Portrait do you like?

September 8th, 2011

I need more help from everyone out there – which portrait (if any!) do you love? Can’t decide? Tell which one(s) you like. Or if you really don’t like one tell me that too!

    I like the Ladakh woman because of her quiet power and beauty.  I like Mongolian Cowboy because of his huge grin. :-)  I like the Lake Khovsvol goat jacket because that is an amazing piece of fashion. Do *not* like the Indian farmer woman because she looks unhappy and diminished.

    I like the ladakh woman shot (in color). Really nice shadows… I love the wrinkles. Nice focus too. Well done.

    - farmer woman in straw is boring.

    - Cowboy guy is boring. I also don’t like the crop of the shot. You should have ditched the bike!

    - Reindeer one is off. the composition is weird. Seems like it’s a two-headed reindeer. Would have been nice to get a bit more of a sense of the scale of the background as well.

    that goat jacket is pretty pimp though. You should get one.

    Ladakh Tradtional Woman and Tsaatan Man with Reindeer are my favorites, but they all are really good. The straw one I like because of the patterns in the straw.

    I like the Ladakh Traditional Woman too.

    Thanks as always for your thoughts Jessica!

    I like the reindeer man and goat jacket. Both look great blown up.

    Of course, now I’m always going to see the reindeer as a pushmi-pullyu.

    Yes. We can thank Michael for that observation. :)

    Tsaatan Man. makes you pause more than the rest.  incongruity between his gentle look and nuzzling reindeer and the gun / harsh surroundings.

    btw, i like the composition of Tsaatan Man. he looks like he’s standing next to a tree, or a grove of life

    I like the shot too. And it is definitely an arresting shot when blown up large…. Sent via BlackBerry from T-Mobile

    Lake Khovsgol Goat Jacket or Tsaatan Man with Reindeer are great because you get the feeling of the subject’s surroundings.  I love the Ladakh Tradtional Woman.. but I just cannot compare her to the black and white images.

    Thanks for adding your thoughts. Those three seem to consistently be the ones that people like.
