    Here's another shot. I'm happy with this one as well. Probably because it's my Dad, but I think there's other reasons I like it as well. I'm just not sure what they are. No post processing (although it probably could use some).

    C&C welcome.

    I'm very sure your dad is as proud of his son as his son is of the photo of his dad.
    Sometimes things are just right without any interference from us. This is your time....
    Ya done good.
    You are sooo lucky to have a dad to make photos of. Don't ever stop or question doing so.

    This is exactly why I love this community. Very kind words Streetshooter. Thank you. I think the reason I like this photo is my Dad never has liked his smile in photos. This one isn't a forced smile, just a look of contentment and happiness. The part you don't see is that he is in the middle of playing with his two Grandsons (4 and 2 years old). Maybe the reason I like it is that it's good to see him enjoying his two grandsons.

    Don't discount yourself. I'm sure he's loving the kids and having a good time.
    The real reason he's smiling is because he's looking at you behind the camera.
    I know an old softy when I see one... I look in the mirror.
    He looks at you!

    This is your life my friend, treat it and photograph it with passion.

    I think it's a touching photo.
    Thanks for sharing with us.

    I like portraits of dads. We men have a more difficult time expressing how much we love our dads, by taking a picture of them, in a way we captured their moments that we want to remember them by.

    If I may suggest doing the second photo with his hand patting the dog's head. Dads that age (like my dad) have greatly 'textured' hands :)
