I love the colour tones of this image, it has an antique feel, faded yet distinct. The grainy texture of the image could be criticised but I think combined with the tones and composition it creates an overall aesthetic which is really nice.
It's a wonderfully simple shot but the eyes are so prominent that it draws the eye and makes it a striking image. The composition is again simple yet fitting for the overall image. I wish that his nose was slightly more in focus but it doesn't cause a detriment to such a lovely work.
