A dark and gritty finish that befits the venerable gentleman. Wouldn't you be tempted to put an SLR in the hands of the portrait painting gent! TongueGrin

A great mono Bill, I like the way the bottom of the image mysteriously fades in to shadow. - gary

Really striking candid Bill, with those two ways of making images portrayed and the "doyen" as a kind of link between them.
Regards,
Rende

Thank you all.
I forgot to mention that this was inside the (reconstructed) 19th-century Masonic Hall, very dimly lit and frankly spooky. I admit to having encouraged the gloom somewhat in processing, though it has ended up much as my eyes saw it initially.

The paneling and bench puts me in mind of an old pub, Bill. Very irreverent of me, I know!
Makes mine a half.Wink
The darkness certainly matches the mood of the paintings.

Yes, Bill, you could have opened up more and not had to steel yourself to shoot at 1/8, with btw is rather impressive at our age Wink

Another excellent candid. I do like these kinds of images - as you probably know from my PF.

The processing has worked a treat Bill - super composition with those portraits looming over Marcus.

The pictures and reflected pictures all make for an interesting setting of this photographer.
Nice processing here as well, Bill.

'Doyen' a wonderful and somewhat archaic word which suits this prominent character so very well.

Masonic lodge? A strange and somewhat creepy place.

Nice work

Very nicely composed and well taken image in mono, I especially like the vignetting, Bill.
