Definitely the grandfather image. You are so photogenic, it's scary.

I look at this avatar and try to embed it in my mind of the many I have seen in past .. and it's from one end of the spectrum to the other ... your other shots, while brilliant in their own way, rather scared me from asking questions or initiating a conversation - in this rendition I would have no problem approaching you.

But now you're in deep doodoo ... many of the lesser known members will approach you with questions asking for advice and insight .. but you brought in on yourself by letting us 'see' the real man behind the name :)

Really great self-portrait, Robt! Relaxed, unforced and genuine! Should do well!

A little safe though, perhaps?

I think this is the best pic I've ever seen of you! Usually you over-process and accentuate wrinkles & lines. Nicely done.

Sweet Puppy Bear...you will have to try harder to look annoyed and grumpy!!! Love the wispy bed-head hair...LOL.

Never seen a selfie from you with this little tonemapping. Did your Topaz break?

Cheer up Bear - there is life in this Old Dog yet!

What now you ask. How about you flip and blend?

This portrait really comes off as strong, yet I see kindness in the eyes and an overall softness of spirit helped by the wonderful background bokeh.

Nice environmental portrait. The open shade lighting works with the skin.
Nothing to sweep me of my feet, though.

I didn't do it.

Say cheese! Nice portrait

some skin smoothing, dodge and burn the eyes, a bit of liquify and this would be killer.

kidding, great shot.
