    My entry;

    'Dave the Security Guard.'

    I saw this guy sat at his security desk in a building when I noted his inability to see properly - hence the magnifying glass. Irony at its best I feel and the best people/person shot I could muster this month.

    Thanks for looking.

    I think most of us were waiting for your one BP, and I knew you would excel, very clever and very sharp, i like it a lot well done. He looks like your dad.

    I too had been waiting to see what your entry was going to be like and you haven't disappointed - what a corker! A great shot that is really clever. I love his Dennis-Healy-style eyebrows. Where do you find these people from? Top class....

    Nice portrait, but does it look a fraction over sharpened?

    Love the way you've captured his eye so sharply through the magnifying glass and it certainly has your style with the hint of grain in the shot. I like it :thumbsup:
