hmn. did you mean 1984? and what Lev said about the resemblance. incidentally Nickie and Georgie looked very much alike; their cousin Willie tried to be like them.

a bit of anachronism between 1910ish mustache (a la Russian Czar Nicholas II) and 1970ish Soviet army hat. But a great photo nonetheless :)

the forthright bleakness... stunning, but not too much.

Beautiful portrait. Title hides an interesting story to go with it, and the mustache suggests an earlier year :). Excellent!

Well, there you go. It was believed back in the 60's that watching too much television gave you square eyes and here is the proof :)

Lovely portrait, great duotones and you have to love that moustache.

This image has caused me to stop and pay attention. That means it is in my 7-10 voting band. (Voted earlier)

Additionally, it is highly interesting/eclectic meaning it keeps me here long enough to offer a longer comment and a vote of 8 or more.

This is one of my 9s - I like it a lot. Furthermore I think it enriches the DPC collective portfolio. Put simply, I wish we saw more stuff like this. Let me tell you why it pushes all the right buttons for me:

1. I like unusual portraits and this qualifies.

2. Excellent fill the frame technique.

3. Superb clarity.

4. Excellent symmetry.

5. Wonderful tones.

Overall, a most excellent portrait.

Very well done but could be dated even earlier.

Great vintage processing and the perfect subject for it.

Definitely looks like an image from yesteryear. Good job at getting that effect.
