This is artistically and technically excellent, almost perfect.
I have two regrets only, not about the piece itself: I think it would be better in classic photo format (the panormaic format is a little weird) And the frame, the thin black line is fine but the thick white frame does not really advantages your wonderful piece of work... Anyway.
Do you happen to know this deviation? [link]
I found yours almost at the same time. I loved both extremely.
you are right. its to closely. my second thought about it is, that it looks not very liberating. but isnt this a good thought about how stupid this partnership with money is? and that when you leave it your life isnt better.
the linkpicture is also cool. much more freer.
thanks for this.
other question: do you still have this hair colour?
What do you mean, it's too "closely"? what does that mean?
If it doesn't look that liberating, it's because you can"t see the model's face... can't see if he's relieved, happy, freed, or, angry, or what... on lorainemd's picture, you see the business man smiling and shrugging, that's why the impression of freedom is more important.
And you're absolutely right: money does not make happiness, but loosing it CERTAINLY does not either.
As for the hair color... it's a wig! Come and take a look at my gallery, you'll see what my hair color really is
