That's a really nice image, he looks like a warm friendly person.

The folds in his jumper mirror the smile on his face. I like the image, well done.

I like his expression and the BW conversion.

Thanks,
Bruce

Thanks for the comments. I was contemplating cropping out the bottom because I thought it might be distracting but decided to just leave it as it was shot.

Conversion was with Silver Efex, which I am really enjoying for the great amount of flexibility and preset points from which to work from.

Crop out the bottom left is what comes to my mind to. This crop appears like your dad's body goes on forever to me and not so flattering.

I hope you don't mind me cropping and posting your image. But this is what I saw.

Thanks for the comments.

Ben, I also wish that there was more light in his eyes. I actually lightened them in post but didn't want to go too far to look unnatural. This was just the best shot of a series. I wish I had just asked him to turn his head a little more to the window. These little mistakes keep me thinking for the next time.

SGallant, definitely don't mind your suggestions or cropping. I'm here to learn. I have a thick skin and really appreciate people taking the time to give their input. I tried a similar cropping, and others, but for whatever reasons just keep coming back to how it was shot. I can see what you mean though, with his body going on . . .
