Superb. Contrast and light are just spot on. Have to agree with you about the eyes also. He looks very alert and thoughtful.

And thanks also to everyone else who's commented. I've dropped in on your portfolios. Good stuff. Can't comment on all the ones I like, so I've picked recent favorites. Otherwise I won't find anymore time to upload!

This is a great one of the Old Man - when did you take it and has he seen it?

PS Congrats on the Editors Choice

Thanks Dad, although I have to humbly admit that it's not quite an editor's choice, but at least it's a step in the right direction, as I have yet to score a reader's choice. I'd like to think my upload times have something to do with that, but who can say Smile

I took this the last time I was home. You were with me at the time. And no, I don't think he's seen it yet.

Excellent portrait man! You said you took this one in a pub, how did you manage to get this silve on black effect??
Stunning.

Thanks everyone. I'm so proud of this one, as it's so personal to me. Michiels, I spent a bit of time with this in photoshop to try and bring out the details. I must confess, I never knew it would look like this when I started, mostly I just tinker around and see what happens. Some images work better than others. I'm glad you liked this one.

One of my all time favourite portraits. It just makes me smile to see it.
