    The first one is by far the better shot, Austin.
    Great work, as always.

    I think the first one is by far the stronger shot, FWIW.

    And another vote for the 1st one. It has emotion radiating from it.

    Thanks guys. I respect your opinions. The thing that bums me out the most is that I didn't get his hands in focus. My dad's been laboring with his hands for over fifty years and showing them properly would have better helped tell his story. It just kills me that this element was right there in front of me and I completely wasted it. I don't shoot open very often and I misjudged the DOF. Damn. Well, getting the pictures at all was a victory, and we had a good talk there in his kitchen besides. That's more important than anything and I won't forget it. Thanks again.

    I agree the first one is better, but he doesn't seem weary or weighted down to me, rather pensive, lost in thought, gazing away but his thoughts farther away than his gaze.

    Most blest is he who lives free and bold
    and nurses never a grief,
    for the fearful man is dismayed by aught,
    and the mean one mourns over giving.

    Wasn't it that the pre-press guys didn't want to be responsible for interpreting color? The slide provided a reference for color (not always correct, of course, but always definite).

    Yeah that was the rationale. In the mid-90s it was a battle for my business because they didn't want to give up the super-high rates they charged for scans and retouching, I was undercutting them at $400/hour. Those were the days but there were some harsh words exchanged and more than a little bullshit when I would give a printer a harddrive ready to output into separations. They would still find a few grand worth of things to adjust ;-p

    Then around 1996 every damn Art Director got a copy of Photoshop and started doing it themselves, so I only had a 3-year window to rake in the dough ;-p Of course the ADs did horrendous work for the next ten years-plus.

    Luckily the internet happened and people paid stupid money for websites that would be basically freebies now.
