I had the distinct honor and pleasure of serving with this 80 something scouter during recent adult scouter training. He is a very successful scoutmaster, and it was inspiring to observe him train new adult leaders. He camped, he hiked, he did it all.............I should be so lucky some day.

This is a great shot. I left scouting when I was 18 -- in 1984. My Dad kept at it. He's 75 this May and still at it.

What a charcter study! The colors are nice and the expression begs a second look.

Love this! Those eye brows have a life of their own. The way you've place him in the photo makes this more interesting than centering him.

You've captured the old timeworn look, I love it. I like how you have the soft sidelighting on his face.

Great expression. The red fleece adds just the perfect touch. He looks like he loves his mission with scouting.

Grand old scout. Wonderful capture of a fine character.

Excellent portrait! I really like the vivid colours in this one, and the angle works very well for the subject. Lovely bokeh, too - very appropriate given the title and the dress of the subject. Nice job.

One of my favorites in this challenge. I would love to have seen a couple of scouts in the background, out of focus, but there somewhere. Still a great shot. <9>
