A photo taken of my Grandad Norman who was 90 this week. Having lived to such an age means having lots to look back on which I tried to get across in this shot.

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.
Usted logro capturar una emoción excelente en ésta fotografía..
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?
Thank you to Peter Bargh for my Highly Commended award - this is my first one since joining the site so I am really chuffed to have received it. Thank you Peter!
I like all of them. He looks great for 90 years of age. =)
Yes Matt, please do! I didn't see until now that there are four images so my comment was for no 1
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
