Terrific. His specs look exceptionally thick.

Virgil, the Bowler Hat and the backdrop of the cityscape behind really complete the story aspect of the portrait for me.. really nice. Jim

Timeless character and a great setting. I really like the skin tones here-with such a great face, a subtle treatment does the job.

It always amazes me how you can study a shot later and dwell on an image that obviously was taken in an instant, when something triggers the photographer to take it. I can't help studying this guy, specs, hat, tie, mustache, teeth, coat and setting. A well spotted subject and well taken shot. Excellent result.

A very nice portrait.

Do you actually work for the Time magazine? :)
