Excellent portrait! Very realistic skin tone.

I like it that way with the subject at the center of the large simple (minimalistic...?)
space...

I take it the title refers to the cigar...?

Yes, its a Tuscan cigar.
Naval engineer, his father was an Italian carpenter and he inherited the love for wood. He did all the wood work in his minimalist apartment.
I sculpted this anchor though, from a piece of fine cedar:

Looks like a wooden boat anchor...

I'm starting to like your people portraits. You seem to put people in a certain mood -- contemplative, maybe? Nice shot.

Thanks vvcarpio. Much appreciated. He's in fact a melancholic kind of person. But determined also. He traveled the whole world working. Never settled down. Never will.
Last one with the Canon 85mm. f/1.8, a demanding but amazing lens, which i'm just beggining to comprehend.

Ordo,
for some reasn I like #1 simply because it reminds me of the late 50's kind of photography set up and composition I was introduced to by my mother. She had a great deal of artist's works and sought to teach me appreciation through her collection. I think this one is very well done! Frank

The exposures are all excellent. I also prefer the tighter framing. #1 drags the eyes off into the room and the furniture. Without scrolling back up I cant remember the subjects facial expression but I do remember the wood pattern on the wall and the pillow on either side.
