I think these are wonderful. He obviously has enough personality for himself and several others, terrific capture of his character. These are always personal things but I would go a bit heavier on the contrast to pump up the BW a tad, these shots could easily have been taken decades ago, timeless IMO.

I love the simplicity of the images. No gimmicks, no props, no complex lighting techniques. I also love #1 (as you do) but also really love the warmth of #3. Not only the expression but I'm a fan of flaws in portraits (particularly in the elderly). They reveal character (well, they CAN).

Is there any vignetting on the top/left/bottom? Is seems a little heavy but perhaps that's natural fall off.

I would also disagree that these lack sufficient contrast. I find them to have pleasing shadows without excessive "pop." I would leave-as. Beautiful conversions.

I really do like number 1 other than being hunched over. If he was more upright, it would be perfect.

I also agree with radioblurs - the contrast works well for me too.

There is something raw and personable about #2 that I find very intriguing. It appears that it shows his unposed, unplanned, truly candid personality. Nicely. done.

Thank you all for your time and feedback!

Daniel, MOST of what's in these is real falloff, but I did some slight dodging & burning in spots, among other things to attempt to balance the background falloff a bit more. I'll revisit that.

#1 is my fav as well. I, too, wish he was standing just a little straighter, but the slight stoop might be an age thing.

You've achieved your goal of capturing a simple, honest portrait. Well done!

Fine portraits, Evan.

#1 is my favorite as well, although I wish he were a tad more upright.

Great shots!
What a distinguished looking man! I hope to be that ebullient at that age.

The first one is great, everything about it. I think the expression on the third one would have made a great head and shoulders portrait but the stance and hands make it a little awkward.

Agree that #1 is terrific. I do like the gesture in #4.

Agree with Spencer about #2.
Dont ever put down the camera even if you feel medicine is a higher calling.

I agree with those that like #2. Of the 5 it was the one image that made me stop, study his character and want to know more about this person. Its genuine. Great set all around.
