nice portrait (even a bit of over exposure on the nose). I like his expression and the way he smokes. All this create an interesting mood.

Witaj Moniczko:)
Wspanialy portret, technika na medal. Jezeli chodzi o sam temat to nie bede sie rozpisywac - palenie to praca na dluga ksiazke.
Rewelacyjnie uzylas swiatla tutaj i wybor BW wydaje sie bardzo sluszny. Klaniam sie nisko:)

Czesc mila kobieta Monika,

You have presented a powerful artistic shot here. Monochrome composition in fine details and brilliant luminosty in dark background are providing an exciting atmosphere. Such a wonderful my friend, well done.

Thanks for sharing this image.
