My

What a very handsome man, and talented too.

Wow

He needs to be in the Handsome Rakes gallery! What a beautiful photo.

Timeless

I was surprised when I saw the date on this photo. At first, I thought it was from maybe around the 50's or so. Now that I look at it, two things stand out. He isn't wearing a suit, and his hair doesn't have that typical greasy look (maybe it's just because it's curly).

Chester

He's a very handsome young man. His hand, to me, looks strong but sensitive.

Depth of Field

Wonderful DOF here. The sculpting hand is put at the focal point, leaving the forward arm in focus, the face in slightly soft focus, and the rearward arm out of focus, giving the photograph great depth.
