Very nice! I like the shallow depth of field with the very colorful crowd in the background - but not taking away from the painted face (and matching shirt!) A very fun portrait.

Wonder if Nadal will ever make it back.

I hope this fine man didn't got too much paint in his eyes!

Some multicolored Brit far away from home? I am more for Nadal myself, as he lives down the road from here

Venice is ok, but nothing beats that man in the middle.

From the texture of his hair to the texture of his beard, you've captured the spirit of this young man beautifully.

Great photo of the consummate tennis fan. As I check on my favorite blogs I am watching Superbowl XLIV. The Colts are looking very strong.

*sigh* plenty of hope and not much glory... as usual!

lovely shot. Very...strangeresque!

What a great shot ... person in sharp focus and crowd blured. Can you image yourself being passionate enough to paint yourself like that ... I'm certainly not.

I always admired people who are dedicated to this level. It's a wonderful portrait.
