Wonderful treatment of what was already a great shot. Almost like scraper board or woodcut. Did you do it in PS?

A gritty portrait of a gritty man with over 40 years service to a gritty business.

Roger is one of the finest gentlemen you could ever hope to meet and is very accommodating, helpful and interesting.

For me this is a little too gritty. It feels over processed to me although the idea is sound in conveying the features and life of this hard working Yorkshireman. Don't know if it is pulled back a little it wold have a more natural look to the portrait unless of course you intended to over emphasise the detail.

Also would have liked Roger with eyes to camera. Not sure what he's looking at and he looks a little bemused.

None the less it is an interesting portrait with a considered approach to the processing.
