Lovely.

An excellent, if very familiar, portrait. Where have I seen this before? What magazine? Put me out of my missery...

Thanks for your kind comments.

I took this some years ago when a camera club asked me to do a talk on portraiture. This guy was in the audience. I only took about 4 shots of him and didn't bother processing the shots for months. When I did, I found this little gem.

I think the last time it got published in a photo mag was about 3 or 4 years ago in Practical Photography.

Absolutely superb and deserves far more attention than those over-saturated, over-gradded landscapes that myself and others are guilty of Smile Good idea with the glasses off the eyes to avoid distracting reflections. Cheers, Martin
