Really lovely b&w, nice definition and a happy face.

A fine character and fine study Danny, the reflector has left it's mark on the spectacle lens but I do like the portrait.

I have to say that I prefer this to your ladies. A grand character portrait beautifully composed, and super rich deep black.

Lots of character and a great expression. Making connection with the sitter/model is half the battle and you seemed to have that well sussed.

Excellent b&w portrait, Danny. Why is it that portraits of males with beards are so good as a rule?

I saw this on a thumbnail yesterday but didn't have time to comment or vote. It's a brilliant portrait of this character.
