Stunning, such intense and honest eyes. Your photo is like an oil painting and that's a compliment.

I'll complement what Elisabeth says by seconding her: marvelous.

Kevin a magical shot!

William Michaelian said...

One of your very best. It would leave Rembrandt scratching his head.

LD said...

This looks like a painting by Vermeer. Uncanny

Lally said...

haunting—as are so many of your portraits

Oakland Daily Photo said...

Caravaggio would be pleased.

Tom Owens said...

Worthy of old master.

BANJO52 said...

Rembrandt or Vermeer? I see it, brown and shadow and light. I agree, one of your best. Wow.

Jean Spitzer said...

Light and dark--fabulous.

Ken Mac said...

maybe its cause I just wizard of oz, but he looks like the cowardly lion, no offence meant. And it is like something by Vermeer

Virginia said...

Oh my dear K, this is a keeper. WOW!

Everyone has beaten me to the Old Masters painting complement, but I must second, third, twenty-fifth the notion, Kevin. Your photos are transcending the medium and becoming digital paintings, really. I think some of my favorite pieces of yours are these shots of the people on the street, the life blood of the real Los Angeles. You capture the city so well in all its dark history and Hispanic glory. Take that from a native...

Go to the Huntington sometime and look at the Rembrandt portraits. You'll know them by the personality that lights their eyes. This is like that.
