A wonderful portrait of an older man. :)

I think because you are including the hands to show the knitting I would have backed off a bit to include a bit more of the arms so it does not look like his hands grow out of his checst.

I think perhaps a bit more fill would have been nice too because the dark side of his nose is almost black.

overall a great shot that really captures some personality, which is what it is all about!

Love, love, love this photo. But then I am always a little partial to photos of the elderly. This is a great photo
