I knew this was yours from the thumbnail, which is odd cuz I thought you had stopped uploading from here. I am glad to see you are still posting Caleb. The light here was difficult; I don't think you would have wanted a lesser exposure, but as it is, you have some hard spots in the shot. I think your composition is really good, the look of his eye, the spacing of the three and I really like how the woman is tucked in the upper right. I can't help but wishing for better light though. Glad to see you back Caleb.

This is a strong portrait Caleb.
Very professional depth and clarity. The eyes of the guy is really what catches me here, he looks lost in thoughts or maybe even angry.

it's a great portrait of the old man but I don't think the children are adding a lot to the picture. The man, alone, has wonderful eyes and a great expression in his face. So, I tried a WS. Hope you like it.

This is an elegiac potrait.
Very good shot.
Thanks for sharing.

A very poignant and expressive portrait. I like the use of light and shadow on the man's face, but I found the lighting on the figures in the background to be too harsh and therefore distracting, so I did a small WS to see how it would like if I lowered the brightness and contrast just on them. I think it focuses more attention on the main figure that way.

I really don't get TE these days, Caleb. This is again such a fine work. WHy not more comments?!
Well, Is hould just shut up, as I myself am racing with time and cannot find enough to contemplate TE works. But this one strikes me as curious, a very fine work with gorgeous light onthe fellow's face while the bokehy boys are busying themselves trying to get your attention.

Superb shot, C and well deserving of the full whack (as it were). You did run into some CA on the edge of the light with your 24-70, an occupational hazard I dare say. Great stuff, though, strong work indeed...

Some, you really hope, are going to pass you by and bug someone else. Some, you kinda hope, are going to linger awhile. A sympathetic portrait, Celeb, of a captivating face.
