Beautiful picture. For some reason this reminds me of the line "antique shops and alcoholic homosexuals" from the Rufus Wainwright song Hometown Waltz. I guess there should be a bottle of vintage wine or something in there to complete the pic.

I love your photos like this, where you take these strong, sometimes intimidating, men and make them look so... I don't know. Tired. Vulnerable... Mortal. Heh.

That is a photo of dark, masculine beauty. :heart: I really love the black and white-thing you did with the photo, it both increases the feelings of the man and brings out his features in a unique way that a colored picture could never do. Brilliant! :)

I like how I got this story from looking at this shot:
A gorgeous man, who got everything he asked for, is deeply troubled because all of his good looks only caused him pain.

i find this picture truly beautiful. usually, i don't really like men taken in underwear, but you managed to make it look artistic and beautiful, not disgusting or perverted... Its is truly wonderful! Is it just me, or does he look sad in this picture?

Beautiful use of lighting here. My only complaint is that the underwear actually distracts and takes away from image. If your model is not interested in nude or implied modeling I feel a lighter underwear color would have been less distracting. Still a beautiful image!

This is absolutely beautiful. So reminiscent of Ancient Greek and Roman sculptures and paintings. It's not often I find photos with a male model that really just captivate me, so this is quite the gem. <3
