Great portrait and great lighting. I thought excellent lighting was a thing off the past. Well done. It's such a shame that most forum members on this site do not comment on photos in the Gallery. Both good and bad points. It's what it is all about. That's how we learn. Perhaps the majority do not know a great photo when they see one. I, myself think a lot of photographers are too hung up on gear. Cameras are for taking photos you know! Food for thought though. Think about it.
John, this is a nice image. It has a good framing (I think a vertical one could also have been good), sharp subject, smooth background, nailed exposure, but most important timely capture of this gentlemen in an expressive moment of thoughtfulness. Thank you for sharing.
