Behind every man success is a woman...;-)

Excellent choice of subject.

Compact framing showing detailed facial features and varied textures.

Impressive perspective & narrow DOF.
Best of luck in the contest!

Thanks for sharing...

Great portrait of the man, who is in good sharp focus and his wife forms a nice background element, even though she is slightly out of focus.
Nice perspective.
Wonderful details and textures.
Nice lighting.
Very good angle of view.

No, I must disagree! It is his "fixer" who history does not identify or ignores! Your fine contest entry looks like a good submission. Your fine use of settings introduces a nice and controlled example of blur. Well done and good luck!

Must have missed this yesterday. Wonderful shot. The expression on her face (I know what's really going on) is great. And I like your perfect dof on this - she is just the right softness. Very well done, Mike.

I like the fact that the woman is not as defined as the king. It is very representational of the title and story. Nice details in the king as you can see every freckle on his. The lighting is perfect for this image.

Oh, this is a nice approach to the contest subject. I like your tight framing of the king and queen. Your focus is great on the king and just the right amount of blurring on his lady. The colors are nice and complimentary without being too extreme. Well done.

Very nice use of the soft DoF on this shot to make her a part of the image while keeping him as the primary focus. Good profile portrait of him. Good color. Interesting concept, and something a bit out of the ordinary. Well seen. Good luck in the contest.

This is a good entry for the contest, the king is well focused and clear to view, exposure is well handled, colors and tones appear natural, the Queen is blurred in such a way that we can see she is in the background behind the king. Well composed and presented! Best wishes to you in the contest!
