Yeah it's a very powerful image. Love the detail and love the colors - the whole processing is very compelling. THIS is sort of photography that I like The bokeh is also nice - the background not totally blurred out adds to the context . A nomination from me for sure !

I nominate this photo.

Way overprocessed (for my taste, at least) but otherwise a very good portrait.

Your processing helps to emphasize more lifetimes than I may ever understand showing in his eyes. I nominate this photo!
