Alan, what a strong portrait! One can only imagine what those eyes have witnessed and how she earned all those "life's lines." Congratulations on a wonderful capture.

The contrast here really sets off the mood in this scene, Alan! All the brightness to light up her calm, "all knowing" expression...! Wonderful human aspect! Congrats on the POTD win!

An excellent portrait with grand detail and expression up against a beautiful colorful BG. One wonders what those eyes have seen & what her person has experienced throughout her long life. You certainly have done an excellent job in depicting those characteristics that reveal her distinctiveness. Big congrats, Alan!

A picture worth a thousand words and nearly a hundred years, you caught the essence of her in that look and in the sharpness of your shot. Well Done !!!
