      whoa - this is beautiful and the lighting is perfect!

      A little bit biblical - a little bit nautical - all wonderful!

      This is awesome... not used to seeing portraits in your stream... branching out?? Looks like you've been doing this for years already... awesome lighting and DOF... I'd love to see this one in black and white!
      ps... is he a Saudi Prince or something with that headdress? No wonder you can afford to keep 20 bazillion old cars full of gas and running! ;)

      This is a my friend Joe. He is Hungarian born, an American citizen and a U.S. Army Veteran. He and his wife are one of the three couples with whom we party several times a year. We're all getting together this Saturday night for dinner. Very often we have themes for the parties, thus the costume.

      What's particularly great about this is its timelessness.... I thought of Blind Pugh from Treasure Island, then a settler farmer enduring a hard winter, then an ageing hippie remembering Woodstock.... More of these low light portraits please! :)

      Brett, this is spectacular! If this isn't your calling, perhaps it should be -- you have the lighting -- everything -- perfect, like you've been shooting these all your life. Impressive, to say the least. =)
