Thank you to all the photographers that shared their best fine art portraiture photos in this photo contest!
“First of all, hats off to amazing portraits of men in a category too often dominated by portrait of women and children. This portrait hinted at a story I kept coming back to, wondering if I could decipher a clue to the character in that smoke, a hidden message in this deep and enigmatic portrait. I admire the muted, moody color palette and the intricacies and details included in this work. Excellent, original, and engaging vision and execution.” – Jessica Drossin
“Once again, I was very impressed by a powerful, playful portrait with the depth, intimacy and quality that would be worthy of inclusion in a Vanity Fair portrait profile. Love the rich, warm tones, the detail, the intriguing pose and intense expression. Exceptional work!” – Jessica Drossin
“Outstanding use of color and light to convey emotion. The details are breathtaking and the otherworldly calm and beauty is mesmerizing. The portrait feels fresh and relevant but also harkens back to portrait paintings by the old masters. Sublime.” – Jessica Drossin
“I love the lighting and mood conveyed in this seeming candid capture of an artist contemplating his craft. I love the non-traditional choice of model and the story this portrait suggests.” – Jessica Drossin
“What a stunning portrait, I adore the color choices and the fact that even though there is a lot going on here, my eyes never stray for long from the amazing eyes of the subject.” – Jessica Drossin
