Works very well indeed, Si. I guess the choice of bg says something about your father too? A man fond of books and reading?
I do feel that this could be even better without the 'dead' area of the bookshelf end on the rhs. Re-position slightly so that the line of books extends the whole way across the frame? But I know you are more than pleased with it as it is, and so you should be.Smile

Hi Sez, yep my Dad likes it, and has always taken pictures himself has used all the formats, medium, large format. Though he is not fond of HDR, 'a gimmick' he says...he like natural looking shots.

Great !.....reminds me a little of Old Master paintings, where clues to the sitters life interests are scattered..... the library behind tells something of his story perhaps?

Quality study and trademark light Si.

Im finding that white light dripping from his cheek rhs , distracting though and spoils the natural curvature of the portrait a little to much to elevate it to award status.
