A very interesting capture of the texture in the gentleman's hair and beard. The other gentleman has a slight resemblance to Spike Lee. And the difference in emotion between the two is interesting to note.

I really like this. Great texture, and it has a real sense of action and a sense of the moment. The depth of field adds to this.
