kiwisa from North Shore, New Zealand

Fantastic intense conversation he is having, but that limp hand on the right is just wonderful.

MissT from Chicagoland, United States

I see pinky rings are all the rage :)

15 Oct 2011 6:01am

@MissT: You, alone, got it! Those rings are identical, and must show membership to some sort of club. I looked up masonic rings, and I don't think that these are they. But they are part of the same club, which I can't imagine is "The working men's club for the unemployed"!

PRASHANT from Mumbai, India

He Looks worried ....great expressions ..nicely spotted.

A fine portrait of this ruddy faced fellow who's dressed in style. That hand conveys an expression that is priceless! Great shot!

daniela scharnowski from Berlin, Germany

Great portrait of a man I don´t think to be very likeable.

15 Oct 2011 12:24pm

@daniela scharnowski: I don't know him, so the rest of the comment is pure guesswork... This was shot at a county show. Anybody wearing a Bowler hat is a "Top Dog", it's how they show their authority. Many of these guys are big land-owners, or ex-military. They do tend to have a particular "Style" to them, which can be charming, or can be intensely irritating.

Adela Fonts from Barcelona, Spain

A gentleman well imagine red by the sun ... very interesting but to me what excites me is the hand that appears like a claw on the right side of the picture ... Awesome! Best regards, Adela

16 Oct 2011 1:28pm

@Look from Nivelles, Belgium

A very expressive portrait for this man ! I'm sure he is drinking a glass (or two?) of old Porto every evening !
Kind regards
