Wow this is really nice, I think score-wise it was a good call to put this one up rather than the other one.

Exceptional portrait, Paul. I think many here are soothed by the whole landscape thing and fail to recognize or realize the talent it takes to create a really good portrait. I know I'd love to be able to do something like this! I'm betting he really likes it too. :-)

I like this photograph, but I keep getting drawn to his hand because of the lighting. I'd like it more with less light on the subjects right side, or possibly with the lighting reversed.

Really nice portrait. Great tones and wonderful detail. Not sure it needed the softening / vaseline lens effect in places.

Best portrait in the show!!! Besides being a very competent photo, the subject is interesting, mysterious even. Looks oriental, but what's the Union Jack doing there? Coat looks rough, but the scarf refined. Hinted details. Wonderful control of light! Just terrific!
