This is a really stunning photo. So simple and yet had much depth to it.

I like how it hints at the guitar since alot of pictures focus upon the instrument, but this has kept the doll as the main focus. I think it's a nice touch and a little out of the normal flow of things.

If I must "complain" about one thing, I think it's the lighting upon the face. It's a rather pale looking face up, especially upon the lips and with this light it drowns out the colour a little bit. This might be due to the fact of his skin colour/ location, but perhaps a slightly adjusted pose or lighting situation (I understand you cannot adjust the sun) could have been a little more well thought out.

Other then this small thing, I think this is again, a gorgeous picture and you always bring the same quality to all of your photos. I aspire to this and hope that once I have my own camera, I can be as good as you. Awesome work x

I want to start by saying that I really admire your skill and eye for photography. This shot is no exception. The atmosphere and mood that it strikes really is quite breathtaking. I love that the tilt of his head and the angle of his eyes make it look like he's searching for a work, or lost in thought. It really works. The clothing drape is very realistic and the texture in the clothing really draws me in to want to look deeper.

There are a couple of small things about the picture I do find a little jarring, though. The first, and it's a very small thing, is the part of the plant right next to Sylas' head. It, too, has an interesting texture, especially with the play of light and shadows, and when I look at the top third of the photograph, my eye keeps getting draw to it and away from Sylas' face

The only other thing is Sylas' forearm. I'm really not entirely certain what it is about it, in particular, that I find a bit jarring; it could be the angle of the arm, vs. the angle of the camera or something like that, but it just looks a little off in comparison to the rest of the photo. It might be a foreshortening issue, perhaps? I wish I could articulate this particular part better, I apologise.

It really is a lovely shot!

I could just imagine him in a band, with fangirls squealing over him.
