Even without quackage, THAT is a great portrait, and I wish you would make it show up here...

I've got the rep for being a little harsh at times with my critiquing, so I'll avoid it and give you a little pointer. The reaction above, and of mine spells out that this is less a portrait, and more a profile image. A portrait by definition is an image of facial likeness, and because the face of your father is not a distinct focal point, I feel that this isn't a portrait. In the future aim to capture more of the face and keep the eyes in focus for portraiture.

Thanks for sharing.

Harsh? I'm not so sure about that. I think you're always very fair and honest in your critique. Better being harsh and honest than saying something is great when it's not. We'd never learn if that were the case!
