    An impromptu shot of my grandfather. The lighting is a littel harsh but I like the expression in his eyes.

    Geat capture, real emotion and pin sharp focussing on the eyes. Would of been better if you'd of got his whole head but its stil a great photo.

    Some might question the lighting effect. I happen to like the photo. As mentioned previously, old people and B&W seem to marry very well...

    I think it's better if more contrasted?

    He looks like he enjoys a good laugh. But he's so close to the lens that he scares me. No really, he does.
    Great picture trigger. You wouldn't have half the feeling there with softer lighting.
