Default Old surfers never die

They stay well preserved with salt. This oldster is just coming ashore with his face caked with saltwater. I'm seeing more and more 50-Somethings and even 60-Somethings riding the local waves here.

the details really make this shot. i like the water droplets forming in the beard and the salty skin. a lot of texture on this guy.

I agree...great detail. Very sharp, excellent color. I'd like to have seen the eyes open, but really with everything else, that's just a small nitpick.

Nice job.

Its an unusual shot to me. Nice detail work with lots to examine. But its not a portrait shot, and it seems more like a piece of something larger. Like its been cropped from a larger setting. So that makes it feel incomplete. Had more of the face been visible it would qualify as a portrait shot. If I just saw this pic on its own without an explantion there would be a few questions to ask.
