An exceptional masterpiece Robert! This is one of the most fascinating portraits I've seen in a long time. The lines in this gentleman's face, hair and beard are echoed in his hat and the shavings. The lighting is superb! Compositionally it's tight! You should feel quite proud of this one!

Mighty fine image Robert, this is a really well composed portrait, and like Patricia said, you should be proud of this one.

... And you're the wonderworker. I'm surprised how a picture like this has so few comments. An excelent portrait photograph. Light, subject, sharpness, DOF, story-telling. I hope you'll take some first place with this one. Congratulations!

This is a beautiful portrait! Can you tell me what you did to get the background blacked out? Thank you!

Fantastic portrait! The detail, composition, sharpness and lighting are perfect. I especially like the added emphasis of his hands and face. His hands show his craft and his face reveals his concentration. Exceptional work!
