I had my Dad sit for me for a minute today while he was here for Easter dinner.

Joshua.. #2 is a great image................ and i like it!

But.. #1........... oh my God............. it doesn't get any better my friend!

This one shows so much of his character and everything about this photographs screams quality.

He is one man I'd love to meet........... and you have conveyed that interest in him in your portrait.

Astounding image! :eek: :eek: :eek:

Thanks Graeme, reading that brings a smile to my face, because he is a great guy and I'm glad to know him.

The B&W image is wonderful. This is why the B&W format will never die. Sometimes less is more. Color can get in the way at times.

I like the B&W the best as well Joshua. The color one is nice, but it appears you "softened" it a bit, I would rather see the texture. On a man, far more interesting.. Nice work! Jeez, how old are you? Your father looks about my age!

Thank you all. I agree, the first one, to me, is the most interesting. I knew that he would be a good sport to let me try some new lighting on him. Thanks for the comments.

Good shots there. #2 is not for me. I prefer to pull the detail of the face and maintain for older gentlemen. Looks like you hit up with woody's technique and to me that is only best on women.

I edited it with a bolder look.
