He looks... he looks just like I want to look when I grow old. That wisdom and peace. And yet he has that power to him, like he could burst any moment.
Something is raging inside him... something extremely powerful. (regret, anger, pain... pride?)

as i was going to the start of your gallery i have noticed that you have a great eye for catching interesting subjects and this is a perfect example of that. I'm not a photographer so i can't say much about lighting and whatever else goes into a piece but I can say I think your photos turn out as well as they due to the interesting subjects you choose.

This picture says a million things, is so very profound, and like someone said above, this man's eyes convey his wisdom and everything else. Even the way he sits, gives the impression that he has experienced a lot.

I don't usually give away favs, but when i do the picture really deserves it. This is one of those pictures... its amazing! You captured his soul and transferred it onto my screen... His wisdom, his strength, his experiences radiate from this picture, just making one want to know more... Its amazing.

Im sorry I can't find anything usefull criticism to fit this, its just perfect the way it is. His gaze into the distance, his wisdom... I wish i will grow old and wise sometime. People try to look young, but you have worked hard for every wrinkle, every grey hair. So why not wear them with pride?
