This shot deserves a fitting background. Also some natural lighting would be fitting. The lighting on the right side of his face, his left cheek and the camera is disturbing. Other than that it's a lovely shot and i would love to hear some stories from grandpa and how he got his best shots.

It's a lovely shot! I have to admit I didn't score it as high as it deserved (don't remember what I was thinking :), but I'm glad it made such a high score and a ribbon. Congratulations!
Looks very nice on the portfolio page next to the Country Life shot!

Nice Norman Rockwell feel here, the highlights on the shirt are a bit blown which is unfortunate, but the subject and feel make up for it. Ought to ribbon.

Right off the cover of the Saturday Evening Post! Excellent.

Nicely done; one of the top picks I think. Nice processing. Would like to see his eyes open more, but does not detract.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Absolutely love it! Vintage Norman Rockwell.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/24/2010 09:06:23 PM
Lovely relationship between the camera and grandpa, but the image feels a little sterile to me. The stark white background is a bit harsh for the moment, and the subjects lack a bit of contrast. But it's pretty sharp :-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/23/2010 06:43:36 PM
This is definitely my pick for the blue! This is great Norman Rockwell. 10

Nice concept; Norman Rockwellian I especially like the lighting.
