A stranger I met near my home, he takes long walks twice a day, even when it is very cold. He´s 91.

A great followup to your first portrait. Looks like you went with the same processing, but the focus on this one doesn't seem as crisp. Great eye contact with the man though.

Love the uncertainty on his face - a cautiousness encountered among strangers

Love the composition and the background, perfect the way he is just looking into the shot. Black and white was a good choice for this.

91 and still taking walks every day! Wow! What a handsome and distinguished looking gentleman. Photographed flawlessly!

yeah for sure this needs to be in a magazine, people with that much vigor at that age are usually a kick to get to know

This is a definite standout. The tone of the black and white adds depth to the story. Superb!

...not so sure about that, Eric. However, this photo was taken on 28th of December so it would not have qualified for the One-in-7-billion challenge.

I am sure he has something ten times better than this that he will submit. :)

amazingly emotional photograph, the black and white you do really helps with portraying such emotions.

Another great composition with excellent tones. The primary plane of focus on the hat rather than the face is cool!

really lovely shot. 91 huh i am going to start walking twice a day now so I look as good at that age. I really like how you have composed the shot though I am not a big fan of the extra black boarder (maybe its just me) and you have some white spots to clean up along the top edge. I would like to see this shot with not so much contrast just to see if that gives the face some extra character.

I love the high contrasts and again, your use of crop and negative space. I sound like a broken record because I always say the same thing. LOL
