A nice portrait of Spencer style 'Sherlock Holmes',
well taken in a beautiful pose and composition,
Excellent sharpness ,contrast and light.
great shot and my compliments.
I like and complement you on your planning and calculations. No wonder you almost always present excellent images. How do you calculate the distance of the DOF? is there a formula? One minor observation, his tie could be tightened a little more. TFS
Hi Roger,definately a sharp portrait,not sure if I would call it a Sherlock Homes type,as Sherlock's hats, were more like a tweedy type hunting cap,so to me, this is more like Mr. Watson perhaps? I hope you don't mind but I did a WS to compare, if the subjects whole left arm were visible,would it improve the composition or not.Please excuse my PP work, as it's not the best,but it allows for a reasonable comparison.
What do you think?

Perfect sharpness and good use of light! I like the original framing of this rather funny character. Good use of a single side light from the left and just that bit of fill-in to highlight the right side of the model.
As usual professional work bearing your signature.
Another marvelous work from you, Roger!
Good skin tones aqnd nice contrasts along with superb lighting and exposure.
I like the costumes of your model and the way he is facing the camera.
A superb b&w portrait and he is looking very much the dapper English gentleman. Maybe I'd use a pocket watch or a magnifying glass prop as well. Good tonal range & sharpness. Tfs!

Spencer is a charcter very curious...he can be who our imagination wants and it is cool and interesting.It is a good portrait with fun , for me he is Phileas Fogg ...he seem to have great adventures.A good B/W choice. Cool and good.

Bom dia Roger,
There are neighborhoods that are very expressive and that help us understand how we feel about a picture. This is the case here, your picture is near to a bird of prey well captured by Parasbhalla and I understand that you have captured the proud and selfness of Spencer so much like that made by Paras and under a similar light. We have two masterpieces together.
