Excellent capture. Thanks for sharing the post processing link. I'm going to check it out in more detail later when I get a chance.

good capture, and I like that the background only has colored tones and no details. Seems to fit the picture

One of many images of time worn faces in this challenge. Very nice as it captures a great expression. Good candid

The color seems to be washed out of the photo. I would like to see more color.

nice capture. his expression is nice and the focus is spot on. his hand looks like it may have some sort of neat image issue or maybe he was just moving it a little, either way i don't mind it.

Sharp where it counts and bokeh'd where it doesn't. Nicely done. 8.

weird processing detracts from the candid feeling.

Perfect capture of this man's world... is that a hospital wrist band?

What an amazing shot. I love the way he's captured in mid-movement, the picture looks really alive. 10

And, ok, this is more for my sake than yours: the post-processing looks gorgeous, I'd love to know exactly what you did. As far as I can tell, along with standard adjustments, you burnt the shadows and dodged the highlights to bring out the the texture of his skin, used Neat Image to make the skin look smoother, and had a soft light layer with black and white painted to shift the light (with slightly reduced opacity + Gaussian to make the lines less obvious?).

But anyway, well done, that is very cool.

Ah he's great: this is so crisp and yet he's caught in animation...love it.

Nice capture - Like the sharpness but the hand looks a little too PP'd?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like how it turned out Kris. The 'flair' on his shirt is the perfect foil to the rest of the dark textures.
