I like this portrait Colin. Nice colours, well-controlled DOF and nice composition. I like the reflections in the spectacles too.

Hmm, what IS that thing he's resting his arm on?

Lovely shot of the man. I would be tempted to photoshop out the white spot on the top of his head. At first glance it looks like a white skullcap!

The DOF was done in PP the "thing" his arm is resting on is a chair back covered with a white material.

I will update the picture ASAP and reduce the white spot.
