:D Niezłe. Może ciekawie by było pokazać czym się tak ten pan upaja.

Thanks for sharing !

LOL! That is awesome! I love it. That guy is perfect. What a great portrait. So much character. Was he posing for you? If so, I would have him move those plastic bags but otherwise it is such a cool shot! Nice job! JP

Lol!!! I like this one so much. Great pose with confidence. I like your low angle, makes him more great!!! Wish you move the bags on front of his foot.
He he.. enjoyed a lot Tomasz, dzieki:)

Mi bardziej wygląda jak Atlas podtrzymujący filar sklepienia niebieskiego;-)) Przynajmniej tak wygląda z wyrazu twarzy ;-))

Great shot! Really gave me a good laugh. He has such great character and confidence! Well done.

ROFL hahahah..great capture Tomasz..for sure Hercules :-))) very very funny !!! great pose !!

haha, cool shot... looks like he owns the world! this one really tickles me to the bone!! Ron

OH WOW! This is one of those tribute to life that I like so much...

There is a saying in Latvian. "Dzive ir Dzive." In English "Life is life." And here we see it as it has never been seen before... ;)

Now I just want to know what is in the black plastic bag at his feet?

I love the expression on his face and the composition is superb...

Nice to see your work again...


hi Tomasz,

Funny shot, and well composed!

Like Madonna says in one of her songs...Strike a pose !!

I really like this picture, its just a real life picture, no super beautiful models or anything of the sought, just an ordinary man enjoying the sun...TFS..martha

Hi Tomasz,

Nice shot!You caughr very well this funny moment.For me,it's more like Tarzan.heheheh

Well take some more sun, before he is Good Looking Bronze, lol
Nicely captured, Tomasz.

This one is a hoot, Tomasz! Wonderful title, too! It describes the photo perfectly!

Beautiful portrait !!!! Great composition, great mood, good exposure. Really well done !

Yes time has his revenge. But inside his head he is still young. Can push the tree down if he has to save your live. Photos are emotion and have to tell a story. This one thus.

How perfect you seen and captured. Nice and clear with great colors. Congratulations.

LOL! Tomasz, this is a great image with humor! The man adds a different element to what one would expect, especially with the background. The low angle composition works really well for this image. Excellent!

ha ha ha :)))))
bardzo zabawne - ŚWIETNY tytuł:)))

Privet, Tomasz.

Great name and shot, it makes us a smile.

Spasibo! :) :)

LOL!!!! This is just too funny. Great shot of a wonderful moment in time.... ha..ha..
Nice meditative shot. eh??

piękny strzał. jeśli mogę coś zasugerować, to sądze, że warto poszukać dla niej jakiś mian w oświtleniu, a raczej rozłożeniu świateł, tonacji barwnej i tym podobne PS-sowe zabiegi. Ale może sę mylę. jak coś znajdę to pokażę o co mi chodziło. pozdr.

Great photo Tomasz. Is it a self-portrait? Very funny photo. Only one criticism, that plastic bag, put it somewhere else next time. THis is a fantastic photo because of it's sharpness, colour and fantastic composition.

Macho! Wonderful free feeling image.
Good capture of fresh flesh.
Thanks Tomasz

Great one! Good capture. Nice speedo!

Hy Tomaz.Very nice moment.Good vork.
Good luck.

LOL!! very nice portrait great pose like the emotional of this subject great job!!
( one more time ) whahahahaha!!!!

Great framing! This is a very human and real portrait, like few. The way he's soaking up the sun after a swim (I'm guessing), in his swimming suit, his fat belly and grey hair... it all adds up to a special shot. Great one, and thanks for sharing.


Haha. Niezłe ujęcie. Rafał

Hi Tomasz,
This on is amazing. It's hilarious but at the same time with respect for the "subject".

i'm on the brink of insanity,when need to comment such fotos ..

I like this fotografia, does not leave you indifferent!

He is for sure enjoying life? or in pain?

Hi Tomasz!
You make me win the day... I'm here, in the bed, ill, wishing that it's raining men... Then I look to this photo, and I can't stop laughting... I wish I can give you 100 smiles for the gale of laughter you make me do. I think I'm feeling better already.

A big kiss

I must agree with all previous posters regarding the guy's confidence and ironic title together with the photo's composition. It is a funnay and appealing photo. i like it. perfect.

Hi Tomasz!
Very good idea. Perfect realisation!

Halo Tomasz,
To jest wspanialy Herkules z tego pana.Bardzo ciekawe ujecie ,wspanialy kontrast i colory .gratuluje ujecia i dziekuje ze pokazales to zdjecie na TL.Pozdrawiam.

Really funny. Well seen.
So this is what Hercules looks like after after 60.
Even the plastic bags work for me.
Hercules taking a rest while taking out the garbage.

Hello Tomasz,
certainly is Hercules, but with mny years lived, and with well developed abdominals... surely, not have hungry :)
Has its comic sense, but what think your model about this pic?

Czesc Tomasz,

fajne zdjecie udalo sie tobie. Szkoda ze opisu nie ma :-)



Applause to both you and your model!!!
