Difficult to read joviality in this. Not sure why but maybe due to the crop and if more of the face than the body. Am I making sense here?

Wonderful light and look. He must be a Frenchman.
The darks in tonality are just awesome.

This is the winner for sure, brilliant John. He actually reminds me a bit of my dad.

Fantasitc portrait! I think the crop is the right choice, as any closer and we'd lose the sense of jovality on his frame.

Looks like a fun man to be around in a crowd! Great image.

Looks a bit surprised rather than jovial, great B&W [almost] candid though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I wish he was laughing as it would match the title better and he looks like he'd have a big jolly laugh; unless the title is meant to be sarcastic, in which case the image works fine, lol. Great sharp focus on it either way.
