    I shot this image of my dad with my new Pocket Wizards. I love them. This shot was using only one SB-800 on a stand with a shoot-through umbrella.

    Me Pappy.

    I love the 2nd one.....

    Lighting is perfect for the pose.

    It invokes so many different ideas, like an old boxer than can still go a few rounds.

    Indeed, and having the chin stretched a little adds to it as well...In this instance, I love the relatively hard side light and details on the skin. While the first doesn't work for me (the belly is strange to cut off and could be angled a little more toward the camera to make it less noticeable, plus the seriously heavy shine on his head), the second conveys a lot of personality; a fine portrait, I do believe.

    I like the image. Nice clean shot.

    But pocket wizards. On a D700. And an SB-800. Guh?

    Careful how you frame that first one. Cutting his belly in half actually makes it look larger.
