A distinguished looking gentleman I saw at a Victorian Day and took him to one side to take some impromptu portraits because I loved the look. This was taken just out of harsh direct sunlight in the doorway of an old victorian school toilet. Who said photography was glamorous :o)

Just one thing I noticed when I took this .. he holds his right arm bent, almost naturally, as if he was so very used to carrying an officer's swagger stick that even without it he still did the same .. I never got to ask him if he was military but his whole stance and the bent arm gives a regimented feel and sense of pride associated with a military background.

Thanks chris, it has had a slight vignetteping, normal contrast and sharpness (sharpness to make the most if cloth detail and skin), a little toning down of over bright hands as they were in the sun more, and some dust spots on the jacket removed .. Not much more that i can think of. It was done jpg on an old Sony dsc-r1 bridge camera. I have reedited in mono and redone it but each version is only slightly different and is only a quick job.
