You must wait for it to make the new images or go to Caedes Control and enter it Dimps.
A very interesting face and good editing technique to go along with this well captured shot.
Set 'em Joe and Play Walking the Floor.

This guy is still smiling after he looks like he's fallen on some hard times. Appears he's had his nose broken maybe even more than once. What a character. Well done, Jan. Almost a mix of color and b/w in your post work. Good luck!

Love this one, the details are painfully, desperately sharp. Lifes been harsh, but the eyes are still happy and soulful, framed by laugh lines. Cindy said 'character' and I think that's what you you caught.

This image would make a great album cover and its title would make a very good album title. Now we only need a great band to make it. ;-)

I love the lighting and I love the subject. Great work, well done.

Outstanding, Jan! While this fellow seems content, his face displays lots of drama. Betcha he has a few stories to tell. This is just spectacular. You have chosen a superb subject. This was truly a gift of human emotion.
