What a fine portrait. It's perfect. If anyone is trying to quit smoking they're in trouble. He makes it look like a delight. Is that awful to say? I hope not. It's just such a real capture if you know what I mean.

@sherri: I understand what you are saying. In a way it's almost kind of a glamorous look, thinking about the films from the 30's and 40's....the cigarettes always seem to be part of the mood that was being created. For the record, I abhor smoking, plus I'm allergic so that does not help matters either. Thanks Sherri...for your kind words and in-sight!
The lighting and tone in this image is just beautiful Bluechameleon, a great portrait, I love the processing (orton?), it is an absolutely gorgeous!

@Kylie Greenan: Thanks Kylie! No, it's not orton, I haven't a clue how to do that. Just some dodging and burning and a slight blur added :)
Many of us do it. Good message. Love the image.

@Momo: Thank you! Yes, I'm sure he is...I found him very interesting to watch and could not help but follow him around for awhile, from a distance ;)
Superb image. Another intriguing image with many different perceptions and understandings, making us think.
The processing is fantastic. Impressive work BC

That is a terrific portrait.
I am another allergic-to-smoke person. It was a welcome relief when it became possible to go into a restaurant without sucking in smoke.

The added softness lends such a romantic air to this. FABulous as always, BC!!
I've had a look-see at all I've missed and there isn't a one that isn't incredible. But the one I'd hang on my wall is the angel bird from yesterday... touches the heart and makes one sit back and philosophize.
As if we are back in time ! Stunning !!
