A great big THANK YOU to all those who voted and commented. This is a new PB for me.

This is my friend's father. He generously agreed to let me take his picture to practice my photography skills.

An appealing, professional, powerful portrait. The subject looks like an "old master" here. I wonder if it is your own father, or perhaps "a father" like a priest.

PS: Congratulations on a new personal best.

I wish there were just a bit more room on the top and sides... but otherwise this is really well done. The light is wonderful.. The sharpness perfect...(not voting yet)
