Im with Sunsqueaker in saying Freakalicious......there is something almost dreamlike and horrifying about this. The mood is ominous, like the old man is waiting for his time to come....The perspective on his face almost has a ghost-like shape to it which kinda adds to the eerie-ness of the pic....well done...this earns a place amongst the faves!

You are a very talented portrait photographer. Looking through your different photos, I like how you often have smaller figures in the background that accent the foreground. Surreal is definitely a good adjective, the life shown in your pictures is almost like it's altered in some way into a higher reality that really captures the viewer.

That's an incredible shot. I actually love the way the hands are placed over his heart, and the placement of your focus. It's really odd how quirks you had when you were younger can be reflected on by way of expressive artwork.

Wow. At first I actually thought you manipulated that man in the picture. Huge facial features, at first it looks abnormal but then you can kind of tell it is real with him. I wonder how old he is. Awesome. And I love the lighting.

One of the most impressive photographs I have ever seen.

I have to agree that it almost looks surreal, even though there really isn't anything that strange in the picture itself.
