Beautiful light, Pentaximus.

While I was sitting at my parents' kitchen table looking at photos on my camera, my dad asked me what the difference between a mediocre photo and a good photo was. I told him that, in my amateur opinion, the difference is knowing when to take the photo. Lighting, composition and exposure are often the result of this decision. I noticed that the lighting was pretty nice right then, so I snapped a photo of him right there.

Some might not like the effect of the narrow DoF in this photo, but I do - it adds dimensionality when compared to a shot designed such that more of the head is in focus.

I think you nailed it, and the thin DOF works well in this case, too. Good one.
