Born somwhere else he could be the next Pacino, well more probably some tough guy in crime movies.
Here, he is my friend Branko.

Hi Jure,
Your friend could, as you show us, play in any film. No doubt he could be a good actor! Thank you for that portrait.

Well Pacino... The Photo is great... But to be compare to Pacino... He will have to speak... to move... In Cinema i find the way he play, very convaincing! When i read the Devil's Advocate i saw the movie and enjoy his role...
Just the face he did when he put his finger into the oily water... No speak but clearly laugh about Gods creation... and many other details like that!

SO the photo remain scene of many good place in summer!
Good natural!

Good work

A beer with a cigarrette.... yes he does look a bit like Al Pacino. I reall like the old colour of the photo kind of nostalgic.

A shot with an artistic touch; just like a cover picture or an add. Expression is nicely captured in this shot along with interesting objects in it. Well done.

Thanks for sharing a beautiful image.

Very dense shot, loved the composition and all the details.

Simply beautiful

Here????? Good hearted bad guy? Glasses have interesting reflections!

cigarettes and alcohol ... they like each other do they? btw nice composition and capture. well done!

The reason I like this image is that it tells a story. You can imagine what happens behind the scenes as well. Funny thing is, he looks a bit like Mel Gibson, don't you think??
Good strong contrast and colour rendition, almost sepia tones. Depth of field is also well chosen. Well Captured !!

The lighting is well handled.

Well composed photo of your friend. Makes me want a cigarette! I have quit I think after 50+ yrs. Been 12 weeks now! I still like my beer though! :} Don

As always, I love all your portrait works. They have character w/ very unique presentation. You should be a movie director or something. I agree w/ most of the technical comments before this but most of all, I like the expression of the subject you captured here.
Have a great day!
Freddie :)

Excellent image - angle, action, reflections in the glasses. Normally not a fan of partial desaturation, but works well here.

Saludos Jure

Nice use of the glasses. His expression is great and the cigarette gives the pic its mood. The blue/green tones are perfect for the mood and the light is really good, too. A simple image but I still think it deserves all its points. Nice work!


What a composition! Great idea here. Just a suggestion how about with a lighted lighter?

Hi Jure, I like the look of this. Your notes ring true to me also. I like the glasses in the foreground. Congratulations on creating this fine piece of work. Murray.
