Captured this wonderful old man in Chinatown.

What a great way to start the New Year. Thank to all the voters , you all made my day. Tremendously happy that this shot did so well , normally portraits are not my favourite genre. Anyway my 2010 resolution for DPC is to have more people type entries and win a ribbon with a portrait of a pretty model. lol!!

I was more than satisfied with the last position . I am not sure if I can call this a bonus , The former 3rd place shot was excellent !! dramatic & potrayed the theme of the challenge really well.
Anyway , thanks for all the compliments I am definitely happy that I have got a potrait that could do really well.
Now I have to stop finding old men & look for a pretty model to do a nice glamour / fashion shot ........

thanks all

Congrats on a stunning portrait. His whole life seems to be written all over his face. Def 1 in 7B + an old man at that. You nailed it in two challenges which further testifies to how well you captured the emotions of this human being

I have to say, I posted a comment on your portrait submission that I thought the processing was a bit off etc, but hats off to you on this one, it looks so much better than the other one! Well done and congrats on your ribbon.

Very nice. Good processing, not overdone. Looks great in b/w. Good subject. Could easily also have been used in 1 in 7 billion. 9

You must have a really great shot in the "One in 7 Billion" challenge if you didn't enter this one. Extraordinary.
