Thank you so much, Marc. Your kind comments are so flattering. The size of his pupils must really be due to age since it was really rather dark. To answer your later question about lighting: I set up a black velvet background and sat him near an open door so the light from the photo's left is natural light. Then, I used one of those weird, bright-white energy-efficient curlycue bulbs, positioned about 8 feet away, to get some fill light from the right.
All the best,
What can one say? Splendid photograph! Subject,
facial expression, composition, lighting, tonal range,
DOF are all excellent. The pupils are a bit small,
but I guess that's more from age than from too bright
