A little dodge and burn
A little noise reduction

This guy is the neatest, most interesting person to talk to. He has outlived most of the crabbing boats here on the bay. His daughter took his car away from him so he takes a taxi everywhere. And YES, he just turned 105 this past August.

Thanks for the nice comments.

Critique Club Review:

Focus is excellent. Depth of field is good, though a bit shallower would have further softened the background. It still is a little distracting for me.

Brightness and contrast are excellent as well.

Lighting looks like it came from the on camera flash. The head on light tends to wash out texture of the features and leaves the lighting a bit flat.

Very good composition. You can tell by the photo that this guy is quite a character. I'm sure this is a picture that his family will treasure in years to come.
