Model: Kyler

I almost didn't upload this. I love emotive portraits but experience has taught me that they do NOT do well on DA. Sadly, unless a penis is showing these types of images tend to get far less views. I'm quite certain it will hold true with this image as well.

Don't know why, but the simple emotion on his face draws me in and I hope it does for you as well.

One of deepest thought and many stories within on life. How far the dream reaches as one to express fully their intimate feelings from within.

i know i've been away for quite some time and i went through and deleted some pics without ever looking at them full view, then went and actually looked at those that made it through the first delete phase. i actually stopped at this one of yours because it was so striking. love this, so simple and beautifully lit.

not that I am anti-penis (SO not) but i love when you DO post stuff that is covered or closer in. Light that works far away, doesn't always work close up. It shows you can go anywhere and produce brilliant work.

It's pretty tragic- what you said is true. It's a great shot, but people won't acknowledge it because all they care about are penises and hot, musculat bodies. It's pretty shallow and obnoxious that people do that.

well i for one am sure this is fantastic work the angle of the pose is outstanding and who cares if there is a penis or not that they are inherently bad to the contrary. when a face says something that is a beautiful thing good job. im vary happy you decided to post it who cares if it gets allot of views i don't think that should be a deciding factor in the decision to post or not

I have to agree. DON'T ever post something because you think it should hit the scrap heep. You're far too talented and again, very..VERY rarely have I not seen photos from you that I didn't like! KUDOS!

It's that far-away sad look in his eyes. Makes you think his mind is on the one that got away.

I had to chuckle at your description. When working with a first time model I start them off with a "look" that is normally easy to do. I call it the "Far-Away" look. I simply ask them to relax and go to a place far away. ** warm grin **
