I love the look of deep concentration on his face. This man looks like a real character and you've captured him well, the composition is quirky, I like that he's slightly off set and the chess pieces in the foreground work well.
The only thing I would change is the use of colour, in my opinion mono works much better for these types of images. I've done you a mod converting to mono and sharpening up the face to bring out the wrinkles.
Thanks very much for the advice, Emma. Very useful and constructive. You're absulutely right, black and white suits perfectly well in this picture. fred
The black and white does remove the distraction of the books, but I would not go quite so contrasty. Maybe also use sepia or another tone to go with his age and venerable status!
Thanks SueEley, another useful idea, worth a try. Super ! fred
