I like the work done for the background and the chosen tone. They enhanced the historical effect. Great mono portrait!

I'm willing to swear that's really my great-aunt Gertrude with a Cuban cigar in her mouth and a homburg hat. (Kidding, of course - and I like it.)

So well processed Brian. So many of us have a picture of him against a brick wall or dreadful background but you have brought a sense of reality to it with your thoughtful presentation and processing.
