Striking colour and composition, he gives me the impression of being judgmental rather than paternal though.

You made this for Josh? Huh, great photo Khuram! I would hate to see the maternal side of this duo. If that is a paternal gaze, someone's got a lot to live up to!

Josh has this strange fondness for date palm trees and turbans. I think he was a Middle Eastern Sheik in past life.:D

Stern look, but not necessarily angry.  I think this is a man I'd hate to have as an enemy, but would be thankful to have as a friend...

Great portrait! This black background makes it more stronger but not  artificial as in-studio works :D
