Nico- just ran across this. It is truly wonderful. I love the whole thing. The gentleman's countenance has a reverence about it. Almost like a modern day holy man. His noble wisdom shines through - or I hope he's noble and wise. Great lighting and softness yet it is clear and detailed. I like that you shot it at a lower perspective so you are actually looking up at him. Great my friend!!!

Nico: A great entry. A captivating subject very well presented. You have talent!

A classic image. The way the eye glasses hang a tad low and the lip formation give great character to this image.

Too bad about those lights in the background. Still a nice picture.

Simply outstanding! A few focus issues but not very noticable. Looks like a ribbon winner to me.

Cool old dude. He looks like he's seen some life. Personally I'd have preferred the sepia tone be a bit less green but I still like this very much.

Revisiting. Excellent exposure and tonal range. Very effective use of toning as well. Gives this that old nostalgic feel. This shot captures the essence of this challenge. Tells a story while maintaining photographic integrity. Bumping up. 8

I want to like this more than i do; could be a fascinating character study, but the blown-out background higlights are not working for you here.

Great shot, great duotoning. It's a shot that captures a candid moment, but leaves you with so many questions. Nicely done.

You photograph, and your title, have truly depicted what is...the texture of dreads and weathered leather that is everwhere. 10

Neat picture! A little soft around his face and hat with a few over exposed sections such as where his bear meets the ceiling light....but good capture.

Lights in the background are distracting.
