This question comes up for me each time and as I'm always eager to read what others would do I will leave this up as an ongoing thread -- feel free to post your own photo dilemmas!
The following two pics were taken at La Grande Orange in Pasadena this July one evening in the bar area. It has a great vibe Louisiana meets Morroco circa 1930. Rob is definitely an old soul so the vibe and the martini are perfect props. I want to keep the palm frond in for that reason.
His eye will be a challenge. (I can hear the critiques now "great painting of some guy, too bad she screwed up his eye!" Only Rob's friends will now I didn't! the hands in both shots are great -- the hands and the cold glass will be the big challenge this time. I keep hearing Stefan Baumann "fingers closed or it will look like a claw!" Even so I like it -- looks massive. Can't wait to hear your thoughts.
