What's a "Teddy Boy?"

Great shot! Reeks of "character."

"That guy must have an interesting life story," is what I walk away with from this shot.

Stupendous portrait. You are a master finding faces and characters!
BTW: the flickr link doesn't work.

The man has one of those 'great faces' laden with character and style. I think he could make a bundle in movies.

You've done a tremendous job in capturing this man's very interesting visage, through skillful use of lighting and the ability to put the gentleman at ease, while taking his portrait.

It reminds me a bit of a Karsh photograph...check out Karsh's famous portrait of Sir Winston Churchill to see how he was able to capture the Churchill 'scowl'.
