Lannie: Very good close up portrait. A little grainy but not objectionable so. Tom

Not much more to say than well done on a touching, delicate portrait. A real pleasure to view.
Very simple and affecting portrait. Noise adds texture on this, rather than being bothersome.
Was this taken as a close-up or cropped down to this detail? There's an intimacy with the subject that doesn't seem echoed by the technical aspects of the photo. His skin against the green looks great. There's a lilting, floating quality to it.
Thanks, Fred. It was shot from perhaps twenty feet away with a telephoto zoom, then cropped down when I saw that it would have been better closer. I shot it from where I was because I knew the moment and the pose would not last.
Noah Comments welcome.
