He insisted on wearing the sunglasses. I got him out in his backyard with the morning sun at his back. He lives 90 miles away so this was one of my infrequent visits and I did not bring supplemental lighting or reflectors or a tripod. The white border was to make a print with a mat covering the border.

Comments welcomed.

Excellent job and I don’t find the shades to be objectionable at all as we can still see his eyes.
My only(very minor) quibble is the brightness of the background.

I did attempt to tone it down, but I could only go so far without it looking dirty and muddy.

Movie star quality! You did a great job of capturing character and expression. Good use of natural light and reflector fill. I like the centred composition too- no-nonsense straight-on shot! I don't mind the "bokeh" on the edges- picks up on the hair and beard. Yeoman's job!!
