A superb head & shoulders portrait of this imposing & regal looking man with the folded arms heightening the perception of power & strength. Good also to have no direct eye contact. Excellent graphism & sharpness with a good tonal range too. Tfs!

Exceptional for book cover.
With one shoulder higher than other, ensheathed arms and looking to horizons, he gives a real meaning of being a wise man.

Another strong portrait work from you, Roger!
The light is well handled and exposure can't be better.
Sharpness and POV is excellent, and contrast against a black BG is well seen.
A well executed work!
You are truly the master of portraiture! Awesome portrait with great lighting. Good details and good contrast. Very well done, tfs.

This is just excellent in EVERY way Roger!! the details in his beard and hair are excellent! the levels are spot on. I love that pose...not much for eye contact in portraits. I think you can show who a person is when they aren't posing! Excellent work, one of your best!

Excellent portrait, good control of your lights rendering nice facial volume. The B&W PP treatment is very well mastered with plenty of shade from deep black to immaculate white. And all these tone without any excessive contrast. No wonder, I just read you use Viveza. A wonderfull tool. I don't have it but I use Nikon Capture NX2 (made by Nik Software for Nikon) that use the Upoint technology. It's crazy what can be done with it. Beautifull work and TFS.

most impressive portrait of a proud elderly man. I wonder how old?
with your skill in portraiture Rog, you can be a Berenice Abbot or a Yousuf Karsch
Best and happy clicking from the 'gabbypal'
