I had wondered where this shot had got to - this man has a remarkable face. The image is stacked full of wonderful contrasts that I personally find really engrossing. Firstly the tonalities are great - from the highlights in his hair to the darkness of the background everything is very nicely exposed. I really like the way his kind, gentle expression alleviates the harshness one might expect given the defined lines on his face.

Great textures and tones. Bumping this to a 10. I've looked at it four times now and like it better each time I see it. Great work!!

Reminds me of a Marlon Brando shot back in the day. I like the composition alot. Good use of background.

nice photo in terms of composition and lighting, but the focus could've been crispier

Good portrait, but I think I would have gone with a tighter crop and less border
