Hello from the critique club

An appealing image that fulfils the challenge brief

A nice pleasing portrait of your father that conveys a happy gentle nature at peace with himself. The bokeh and flare of the background works well but that same flare is also its undoing, there is just too much of it in the important areas of detail, ie., his face. The flare is such that it is not flattering indeed, it is to the detriment of cleanly portraying his facial features. I think also, wide open is too shallow a DOF especially with the flare everything is just too soft. Having said all that Daniel, you have a lovely portrait that will continue to mean a lot to you in the coming years, well done.

too much sun flare. The bokeh is nice. A 6 from me
