|I think #4 is the most flattering, and it manages to incorporate a Maestro theme, which is good. |
#2 isn't too bad either, though I think it could have benefitted from the use of a reflector or a second light source just to lift the shadows around the eyes and place a small 'catchlight' in them - as it is, I find they're a bit flat. I like the general use of shadow to create mood, though.
He doesn't look happy in #1! Used as the picture on the mikeoldfield.com main page, it rather seems to say "Get off my website!" I think it would work a lot better in black and white, it would suit the mood better and look rather more classy, I feel.
I do like the allusions to 2001 with the motorcycle helmet in #3 - I thought that one was quite funny.
About pic #2 - it's really my fav one,although the light is not that good.That one should be the one to use on the main page of MO.com.
Pic #1 - really don't like it as the main pic on the MO.com's front page.Mike looks bored and he should have done a much interesting pose,to invite people to come discover his webbie!
Well,I'd love to see more new pics of Mike in some sections I think it needs some pics...
