these are a few pics, taken over the holidays of my uncle. He has lived a very hard life, had many medical problems and is now on oxygen 24/7. We though we were going to lose him before Christmas, but he seems to be doing a bit better. Would love your thoughts on these. thanks

I really like # 2. The first one I feel needs more room on the right side of the frame. Somewhere for my eyes to go, it's so close to the edge i'm getting stuck there, tangency issue.

yea I think I see what your saying. the eyes are where you look and because they are so tight to the side you tend to stay there. Thanks for the input.

A lot of emotion in the first two. I'd like the third one if it was as sharp as the first two. Good luck to your uncle and the rest of your family this new year!

I actually started tearing up a bit after looking at these...the first one provokes a lot of thought and makes you wonder what he might have been thinking at that precise moment...the second one makes me smile and its just a really nice picture.

Nice one man, these pictures are loved by people even outside of your family.

I love # 1 it has emotion and a strange softness as if he is accepting of his illness. Thanks for sharing these intimate family shots
