Hello John,

A rare head and shoulders portrait from you, & it's a good one. Perfect sharpness and nice use of a shallow dof with a neutral oof bg. Good highlights in the eyes and a soft diffused light. Tfs!

Hello John,
Excellent capture of this man with such a delightful smile and an agreeable open face. Perfectly exposed with beautifully rendered colours and fine clarity.

superbe portrait et vue quel sourrire quel look fantastique avec sa barbe ces cheveux long quel imge et ce regard splendide vue.
Bravo et amitié

Hello John,
This is a very fine portrait, just the way I like it, not missing any part of the head. Younger photographers omits parts of the head when they go for a portrait and I don't care for that. Maybe I'm too conventional but this is how portraits should be. 👍👍

Hallo John,
De Fons ziet er heel blij uit.
Waarschijnlijk heel vereerd dat je een foto van hem wilde nemen.
Excellent scherp en goed belicht.
Je ben heel goed in portretten.
Vele groeten, Paul

Hallo John,
Een mooi portret van deze man met een vriendelijke glimlach op zijn open gezicht. Uitstekende scherpte, zeker gezien tegen de wazige achtergrond. Goede compositie bovendien.
