There are few times that I look at a portrait and this portrait speaks at my heart. The intense glance of this man's eyes caught my attention as soon as I looked at the image and starting from there, trying to imagine his thoughts, I travelled along the wrinkles of his face each one of them a story of his life wonderfully portrayed by the photographer. The details of his beard and the subtle smile of his face completed my travel. An amazingly emotive portrait, framed with the man's garment within the photographer's frame. I admire the photographer who managed to shoot such a pose, which is a live proof that the fav system in dA is unable to expose truly beautiful photographs!

Dear Stamatis, thank you very much for your critique.

You're very welcome!
It was a pleasure to write for such an outstanding portrait
and it was a scandal that it was faved only 7 times.
At least, 23 of my watchers had the chance to notice it and fav it!

I see that to achieve anything here you need to spend 24/24 hours networking... but of course there are so many good works here, you'll need to take a nude shot of Obama or an alien landing on Paris and all this in HDR/DRI to get noticed - so to say...

not really...really good works usually stand out with the help of those who notice them :)
