Full marks for this effort. The subject and mood are stronger in mono for something like this.
Perhaps the ageing treatment isn't to everyone's tastes, but it's subtle enough here to add to the image, it's sometimes a careful balancing act.

A very comfortable pose, and lovely portrait. Don't mind the aged look at all.

A trackball is a lot easier on the wrist and arms than a mouse - haven't used a mouse in years, and haven't had carpal tunnel in years either. (Logitech makes the good ones)

Hey hey...long time no see, Jo. Welcome back SmileSmile

Excellent portraiture and I do like the processing but I would have done away with the flecks of white on his forearms and hands.

Hmm...look after that elbow. I've heard of tennis elbow but don't know what it is. It does sound like something you don't want getting worse, though.

Good to see your work again Jo, like the pose and editing.
Happy new house.
Track balls are good but take a little getting used too
