One of my best friends, who I worked with for many years, sadly lost in the mist of Alzheimer.

This is a lovely casual portrait. Lovely greyscale. Nice composition and DOF. Perhaps there could be even a little bit more DOF to have your friend stand out even a bit more. But that is only nitpicking. I say very well done. And how lovely to have such a lovely photo of your friend. I am sorry for you loss.


It's a beautiful tribute to your best friend, b&w, the moment.
I like the dignity and respect that emanates from this portrait.
I'm touched. I think of my father.
Well done Mrmike.

Hi Michael,
I like the composition here with your friend's head following the rule of thirds and him looking into the distance and not at the camera, perhaps a shallower DoF would have blurred out the background figure
Well done
