He is Mr. Neema, 81 years of age working as a agent who can simplify your work in preparing/getting documents/papers from R.T.O. of Indore. He does that from 1964 though he has only qualified upto 8th standard. He worked as compounder for around 4-5 years then in Municipal corporation for about 8-10 years. I like his neatness in the work & was impressed with his physique at this age.When I asked the secret about this he said the reason might be the way he maintains his daily schedule regularly.

Meant to say it earlier. This is a wonderful portrait. I love the bokeh and circles in the background. Excellent expression on his face. Wonderful tones too. I love this style of portrait! Unfortunately I'm too shy to approach people and ask them if I can take their photo and my father hates getting photographed. I'm doomed! :-)

I love this picture. I thought it would have ribboned -- it was in my top three. Nice work.

The emotion exuded from this image really is astounding. I've looked at it for the past few minutes and I'm not sure what to say besides great portrait.

So good. The eyes and tight lips suggest a guarded, almost fearful, demeanor. What I like most about this is the energy. One can feel the years passing over him or pouring out of him. Stories to tell. Or that will never be told.

More formally, I like the vertical lines -- in his shirt, his face and even his hair. Combined with the perfectly shallow DOF, they pull the viewer in.

Great shot and dof, that pocket flap is distracting though. Well done

Your shallow DOF is effective. Might have cropped the thing in his pocket off. Nicely done.
