Amazing portrait of an interesting character in a timeless quality.I guess colors and contrasts are pure lab-work and not pp-work?

Human face is always interesting. As everybody has a story, every part, every inch of his/her face expresses the story.
Seeing this portrait, I wonder what kind of story he has, what have been seen by his eyes, what have been heard by his ears --and how many cigarettes his mouth has taken.
The portrait is well-composed, can't be better than this.
Looking forward to have more from you.

oooo a well composed and vibrant portrait, too often missed on trekearth. This blows away my stereotype of what I perceive as an "old Chinese man."
The colours are gorgeous, the contrast is perfect as is the crop, i love his expression, but what really does it for me is the loooooooong cigarette holder. Sweet!

Very singular portrait, and very nice also. Colours and sharpness are amazing. I love the expression on the face of that man.

Great, so great portrait of a very styled character! Really amazing colours, definition, and details. I love the 4 different shirt collars, the cigar of course, and the silver teeth, and the fabulous glasses ! --amz

A beautiful, very striking portrait. He looks like quite a character, with the cigarette holder and his natty clothes.

He enjoys himself, I think he should with this huge thing in his mouth. Cool.

A great, great shot here! My goodness...one of the best portrait shots I've seen here on TE...and they're have been quite a few, too! You've got him in a wonderful pose, with great clothes, glasses...and of course...that amazing smoke he has. Very, very well done!

wonderful and cool portrait. Superb defintion and what a willing model too!

Thats great! The definition of a dandy - three shirts and a jacket. To top it off he has one fine-a** gilded grill and a long smoke holder. Very clear and well lit.
