@manoldonchev was the Judge!!
The male valkyrie - Excellent work with paint, and posing, and camera. I only wish it was framed with a bit more open space above the head. Cannot unsee that.
Masterful use of light and the manly features highlighted by that.
Man at work — and it can be seen even without the environment, the action — just from the portrait — the sweat, the frown, the black stains — we no doubt see this as a man of work. What men were made for in modern society (when there's enough peace, at least). And presented with the quality we are looking for.
(in no particular order)
That one cracked me up. I was thinking about top 3 even but...could not find in whose stead. Interesting point of view, there's both man power and there's a joke, in nice colors and good use of natural light. I will think of some way to further reward this.
A good effort and a creative interpretation. The background has the potential to be aligned better with strong lines not cutting the way they do now and the door frame used to more effect. But that's only my own vision of another's work.
Talking about male archetypes... The Stranger is one among them as are men at work :wink: And this one is masterfully placed in the mood of a real meeting with a stranger indeed.
The photo may be more a street shot but I appreciate the skill to engage strangers in conversation and take their photos after gaining their blessing about it. And an interesting model here.
