i'd love to see more than just his face. his surroundings, his hands, an expression, his personality, a certain motion.
imo you framed this to tight (or cropped in too tight in pp) and thus took him out of context.
he sure looks like he has a lot of stories to tell, though.

eta: this comments pretty much summs up my thoughts:

Wonderful portrait, you feel you could reach out and touch him. I also think it would look fabulous in b/w. Great work, Tareq.

This is superb picture. I feel it is better than mine.I am also pleasantly surprised that you took it with 60mm macro. I have imagined in my day-dreaming, what it would mean if I would take pictures with 60mm lens. It is perfect portrait focal length on APSC-format (450, 40, 50D).

Congrats on the 4th place.

Regards,
Vikram

P.S. I am just wondering how it would look in B+W. It should be wonderful!

Very good detail. I wonder if you have considered making this submission B&W as I can see a lot of texture around his face which could be revealed more in B&W. Color version is just too distracting, especially the OOF human face on the right, in the back ground. 7

There's wisdom in those eyes. Nice tones.

Wonderful juxtaposition of the grizzly beard and the serene face. DOF really enhances the shot, but the crop on the left is just too tight.

Truly a contender for a ribbon. The light is managed masterfully. The composition is well done. The DOF is perfect. Color tones work well. The expression is great. You really have a masterpiece, here.
