Phwoarrrrrrgh...
But then my daughter has often said that I have lousy taste in men.
Apart from the fact that he has the sexiest eyes and smile imaginable, this is also a fantastic portrait. Excellent composition and placement (except that the iron pillar at the top makes it a bit busy), great colour and obvious rapport. He's comfortable in front of the camera, this is very much on his terms. Love it. Shortlisted...
Just watch out for for small men carrying stones...

Well, that's one week of the year Moira doesn't get taken to Whitby, that's for sure!

Mind you, it's a brilliant character portrait. If I were you, I'd just be a bit concerned that he could belong to that secret society, the Brotherhood of the Still Art...

Though I may like men in tights, I'm afraid this chap, for me, doesn't reach the parts that he reaches in Moira Smile
But what a wonderful portrait anyway - he looks weathered by his years of seafaring. Captain Pugwash, eat your heart out. But I'll stop there before it really gets out of hand!

Hi Moira and Maureen have your worked out what the sticks for,is someone working him from the back and that's why he looks like a cross between Jonny Depp and Keith Richards from the rolling stones are you both sure you want to go through with this splitting thing,their might be a third person behind the stick...........lol.
Excellent photo,looks like a great Jack Sparrow kind of been at sea a while i think but love the saturation and crop.take care,AnnSmile

An excellent portrait of Captain Jack Sparrow, Johnny Depp has aged a bit since i last saw a pic of him, either that or you've led him astray by taking him on a pub crawl! lol
