This is a really good shot, Sharp, good timing, and gives the sense of cold also.

The position of your Father within the frame could be better, - more space in front for example, but it still works well.

I like the blueish tint, but I wonder if a straight mono would work too.

I have loaded mods in straight mono. There are three versions, each one is based on positioning your father further from the edge of the frame. The mode3 is a square crop, with space added in front, and rotated.


Hope this is helpful,


Regards


Willie

I like this shot a lot. I went for an even more daring crop and increased the shadows channel just a bit. Perhaps just a matter of personal taste (both the crop and the exposure adjustment), but I felt it made it all a bit stronger. Great portrait.

This is very good indeed, but has one major error - the position of his head in the frame. If your original allows you can crop the whole of the right half off leaving just the face. You do not need the full head in the frame. Possibly just a touch daRKER TOO, BUT THE BASIS OF A SUPER IMAGE.

The detail in this shot is fantastic and the DOF works very well. I think a little more crop of the collar from just below the nose and a little 'uncrop' of the cap (so you could see the full cap)would work well so the contrast and difference in shades would bring the viewers eye to your Fathers face. I also agree with banehawi that mono would also work very well.

a great portrait and hard to add anything other than a crop on the back and maybe a little more space needed for the front as mentioned it give the person room in front.

A great shot though and like i said hard to add anything other than cropping.
