I had my 580exII off camera bounced off the wall behind the camera. Lighting was tricky and so was the WB because of the floresent lights in the background. Thats the reason I converted to the brownish tones PP because the lights were coming out real yellow

PP Included: Black and White layer with blue filter and tint on to a brown tone, Curves layer, Curves Layer, Neat image on background layer, save for web.

Nice shot!
The tones and the details and poise are wonderful!

Just a small nit-pick (a personal one on that): I feel, the shadow of glass on the face takes something away from his expression.

He's "elderly"? Great shot of a handsome man.

Nice portrait, like the background as well here. It looks like there is a light shining through the glass though casting the shadow on his face, would have been nice if you could have avoided that as it takes away from the shot a bit.

Love this shot. The shadow of the glass really takes away from this shot's excellence.

I really like this shot. It's a great environmental photo...the background and the glass tell you where he is and his eyes engage you fully. The sepia adds to the feel of it, as well.

Classic and timeless look to it, like the color and tone as well as DOF

Great bokeh, love the dark shadows. The shadow on his face is a little disctracting.
