Reccer's comments: No S3 spoilers.
A gorgeous portrait of Dr. John H. Watson in profile. I suspect that this may be a side view of that famous shot when Irene Adler tells him that he and Sherlock are a couple during ASiB. Hence, the "angst" tag, although I personally might describe the moment as having drama, or describe the mood as electric. But of course this also could depict another moment when John is overcome by astonishment or wonder, perhaps watching the Great Detective solve a particularly daunting puzzle, or throw down an assailant with a practiced baritsu move. But you are certainly free to imagine your own script for this instant caught in time...

The light striking John's hair and eyes is particularly beautiful. Retaining his wrinkles and imperfections is absolutely right, for human beings are intriguing and attractive long after youth.
