A very well done image Mr. Chinn, I like it very much....I know it's part of the hat but that piece on the brim keeps drawing my eye.....I think gone or maybe darker but that's just me....

Awesome. He definitely looks the part. I wouldn't want to mess with him.

The twinkle and the wrinkles--brilliant balance and contrast of emotions. Conveys both mischief and mystery. Superb portrait. Matt

Thanks Frank !!! Sometimes the little things can just drive us crazy, but in the case of his hat, since it is a part of it. I decided to leave it.

Thank you !!! His appearance is what I was drawn to. I will probably never understand why I'm drawn to some more than others. It must be a subconscious thing, so I will not try to beat myself up over it. I have found, so far, the roughest looking character usually ends up being one of the nicest, as it was in this case, so I never judge a book by its cover.

Thanks Matt !!! The eyes, to me, is one of my key issues. The wrinkles, the more the better when I'm out on the streets.

I'd love to know where you get your models. Certainly an eclectic menagerie. The photo is terrific.
