This is fantastic. It makes me want to cry with joy and sadness at the same time.

I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: Simply stunning - candid portraits simply don't get better than this. Pristine focus and wonderful isolation of subject. I really like your toning too. His expression is priceless, but your capture is better.

Critical stuff: Just that fleck on his jacket lapel... I can see why you might want to keep it authentic though.

Overall: I hope this takes the Blue. It just might too.

Wonderful candid. The lines on the mouth are just so unusual. Fab PP.

Wonderful capture of the age/character/determination in this portrait.
Desaturation is a good idea on the shot, although I would've preferred a warmer sepia tone myself.
For a street shot, the background is nicely defocused.
All in all, a keeper in my book.

Great shot - but a green caste on my screen. Was that intended?

Great face study. Splendid in fact. Did you mean 'pass' or 'past'? Not marking down, just curious.
