this pic makes me think to. hehe. what is the old bloke thinking? is he thinking about his past, his future or just hanging out not thinking much at all? i think he's watching television.

Nice shot, I like your choice of B&W. The man's expression says it all.

You have really captured a feeling with this. Such a good moment. Like the fact it is black and white too.

One might need to be in the age range of this gentleman and myself to feel the full impact of this photo and your title. This would be one of my favorites in this challenge. 10

Nice shot, good capture of emotion, but I don't think letting go when I look at this. I just think he's deep in thought.

Only suggestion would be to photoshop out the couch behind the man's head. But good caputer of emotion in this picture. 7!

I think this is a wonderful portait shot. I can understand the tie to the "Letting Go" theme, but I dont' think it's really evident much in the photo - moreso from the title. Still, the pose, lighting and tones of this shot are very good.
