I tried to recreate a photo I took of my Dad in 1988. It was a black & white portrait for an evening class in photography. Proper film & developed with stinky chemicals.
I thought there were halos at the top of his head (sounds wrong), but I think it just reflections. Amy comments very welcome.

Great shot but the movement of his right hand spoils it slightly for me. You can can get round this issue with Photomatix. Overall I think I know what your looking for...8++
