This is a picture of my father taken at St. Charles Hospital in Port Jefferson, NY. The light was from a large window with a southerly exposure. I used the camera's image stabilization feature because I was shooting at a low shutter speed. Post production work (balance, sharpening, cropping) was done in Photoshop CS2.

Great capture of the personality of this man.

I imagine this was taken under difficult circumstances. Lovely sharpness and character, despite that.

funny, I caught an image of my dad like this, in March after he had surgery. it's a poignant moment isn't it?

hope all is well...

This makes for an interesting portrait, but would benefit from some further post-processing work. The tonal range is on the flat side, with little in the way of true blacks. Your Dad looks pretty amazing for 94, even in a hospital bed!

A bit more contrast would've really made this pop. Nice capture though.

This makes me sad. I hope he's ok. Looks GREAT for 94!

Nice. Looks great for 94, and think of all the experience and wisdom he has. Good work.

I can feel the emotion you must have felt when the shutter went pop! Nicely done

Now there's a portrait you don't see every day. Nicely done.
