You have really managed to capture an emotion here. A bonus is also that we can see a hint of the photograph he is looking at - which in my mind is of him and a wife who has passed away.

To my taste I would have pulled the blacks in a little but on the other hand this phot suits a set of softer gray tones.

Thank you for your comments and votes everyone.

Ellie - I also like the way you can see a hint of the photograph as it allows you to imagine in your own mind what he may be looking at and thinking of. I do have a version of this with the blacks pulled in and it was a toss up which one to post funnily enough! I can always add it to the versions if you like?

Matt

I love the poignancy of this, and my eye is drawn as much to the photograph as to the face. The emotion is tangible.
Glad to see an award, well done Smile

Thanks Smile

I like the fact you can see a bit of the photo too. It was unintentional but I think it has worked out well!

Its worked really well! I too like the photo and you have caught the emotion in his eyes really well, he is definitely thinking fondly of the time caught in the photo
