What a great closeup! There is even a fly on his head...good texture on head, interesting expression: well composed.

Not a good looking animal, but a great looking photograph! The textures took the light perfectly and can almost be felt in this image. One of my top 10 favorites of this week.

Good shot - shadows maybe a little too dark...

Really great shot. The DOF and colors are amazing. I wish the fly wasn't on his head though (only thing keeping me from giving it a 10). The eyes are amazing - such an old soul... Great job!

with a fly on it too... pretty cool.

Very nice image. Great detail. I was originally thinking more light on the bottom right but now I think that would deter from the top where you have great textures. Good choice.

Good luck

I really like this shot - only change at all might have been to have the face not quite so dark - but only a small adjustment. 10
