This was taken at an American Indian festival at a local park. This beautiful old man caught my eye and I had to take his picture. Shot with a 50mm f/1.8 (Thanks Jen)

A wonderful shot of a beautiful man. Like the pure look on his face. Sepia was a good choice.

I keep coming back to this as it just seems to capture all kinds of thoughts. It's such a good picture, but I feel some of the post processing, especially in the hair line took away from that big WOW factor. Your tones are wonderful, and your focus is excellent. Good luck!! 7

nice shot and a good catchlight :) I do like this colour but wonder if a stark black and white would have more impact?
