If this was advanced I could of cloned out the dust on his hat. This is Alan, he loves his garden and makes Blackberry jam. I asked if he would mind posing for a portrait he was delighted, I gave him a print for his trouble and saw him next morning proudly showing it to his friend.

I am hoping this grabs the attention of the voters and they can feel the incredible emotion in this mans face he has many stories to tell.


est score - 6.3
dream score - that elusive 7

Very beautiful entry. For me, there's nothing wrong with having dust on his hat. That's the original shot and it's beautiful. It makes the photo real -- the truth.
