thanks a lot for all your great comments! i was quite overwhelmed while savoring each one… this is not my highest rated picture, but definitely one of my own favorites! i do appreciate that you all “got it”…my “model” deserves the credit here, of course!

He looks tough and wise. That is where you will get your own stregth from. A very good portrait. Lots of character. B/W always helps.

Great portrait which expresses more than just a face of a man. Technically it also seems very good. If I should put in some critique then maybe it seems rather monotonal and if it wasn´t for the hair I think you could increase the contrast a litle. Don´t know if it works in this situation but maybe a polarizing filter would have come in hand to reduce the withe glance of the hair.
But as I said in the begining, very good image.

Great photo but you'll have people voting low because it doesn't bluntly say strength (not me)

First it's a good shot, I like the b&w, the 3/4 side view pose is good. Second what a nice tribute to your dad this is. I love the sentiment. Very nice entry.

Nice portrait. Might benefit from some fill lighting to lessen the shadow across the lips.
