A wonderful portrait indeed. Your sitters face tells a thousand stories; it's quite a tragedy that more and more people seek to erase the lines from their face, when it's what can give a person so much of their character and tell you something of the kind of life that they have lived. Great toning and use of dof as well.

Michael.

A lovely photo. You really captured the persons mood and the DOF is great. I agree with a previous comment about the lines on his face as I love to see this in these kinds of shots. The focus on his eyes makes me wonder what he is thinking Smile

Super detail on the face and lovely bokeh effect. Would look great on a canvas

Great shot!

Matt
