    I like this portrait alot. The texture in the subjects skin is great, and the sharpening after the resizing I think made that possible.

    This is a government official? He's so casual and normal.
    You don't see many pictures of Canadian or US officials looking like everyday people.

    I like it alot, for that exact reason.

    Well he is a low-ranking official but he is anice guy.
    He invited me and a friend to a baci, a Buddhist welcome ceremony and dinner.
    I absolutely love this picture for 2 reasons. 1) it was taken with the 18-200 Nikkor lens dispelling my doubts about how sharp it can be and 2) it is the best portrait I have ever taken.

    I do have a slightly darker version and I vaccilate which one I like the most.
