Portrait of a (very patient) husband. This is a photograph I have always wanted to take. I have taken his photograph many times when we are out somewhere together but have never sat him down entirely for the purpose of taking his portrait.

I am really pleased with the outcome. I felt the slight image grain really complimented the strength of the photograph, while the 'sepia'-style colouring added warmth.

Good dramatic lighting. I like the graininess and the duotone, too. Is that a hint of green I'm seeing? Good luck.

Nice portrait. It's really a dramatic light. Well done. One of the good ones of the challenge. A 9 for me.

Like the simple title, this would have done well in IMAGE GRAIN, but works well in this challenge also, love the stubble with a hit of gray... 7
