This image stuck out for me due to the colours. The boldness of the reds used are really striking! Also the facial expression, how his eyes draw you in through a look of shock. This is a key factor within a portrait I think, being able to connect in some way with the model.
This photo was one of my favourites this week due to the emotion, the effects and the story behind the image. The dark silhouette of the man with his head down really makes you feel for him due to the lonely surroundings as the building burns. This photograph almost looks like a still from a movie.
Another good use of colour in this image. The brightness of the materials almost contradicts the emotion of the two people in the images. You can see the pain on their face as their house has been destroyed.
Another portrait which I really like is this above. The use of depth of field and dark colours draw you in to the expressions of the girl as she looks up with bereavement.
