Hi Harry

I really like this! There is an ageless, timeless quality that is captured superbly here, A countenance that is reminscent of the "old masters" with the only give away perhaps the zipped jacket. It has the look and atmosphere of a real classic.

Excellent work Harry! 7

Best Regards

Harry, the light and detail are really wonderful. The black background and dark clothing really make the facial features stand out.

Amazing unique portrait shot with wonderful angle of light and deep enriched black shadows which enhanced scale and definition of the photo. Bravo.
