Today you...tomorrow me. by mrcool256 Today you...tomorrow me. by mrcool256
Today's Christmas/New Years truth/lesson...

Life can be unpredictable, be nice to people, don't make the mistake of assuming they got to where they are through tremendous fault of their own.

...homeless gentleman I met on Venice Beach with his dog 'Shaky'.

this is my first bear with me.

the vision is about how he is homeless, which makes is pure and gentle, very very kind of you.
originality is very good, because I haven't seen such emotional portraiture in so long..
the technique is amazing...great focus, lovely colours, they make the subject jump out at you..its beautiful how you made the tone suit the subject.
impact...very great..everyone seems to be very moved by his expression, which the tone brings out even more..

well just overall great job!
I can't think of anything to make it better.

so yeah, great image, with so much power..very good.

:iconsobeautifulplz:Actually, your description "homeless gentleman" moves me as much as the photo itself. There are a lot of emotions and stories captured in the man's face and I think you captured them amazingly!

DD worth, I think :heart:
