The subject of this photo, despite the title, does not have a huge ego. I titled this image so because the shadow behind the subject reminded me of a cartoon villain with the sharp shoulders and long neck. I know the subject himself is not perfectly focused, but I prefer it this way because it helps to emphasize the shadow behind him. This is why it’s one of my favorite photos. There is so much contrast, not between colors, but between the calm, good-natured subject and the ominous shadow protruding behind him. The two are so strikingly different in appearance that my attention stays drawn to it.
