Weekly Challenge 41: Emotions

It’s time to dig into your portraits of men or women and show us your best shots of  displaying emotions. There is a catch, the emotion can not be a smile.

Make sure to label the emotion in the title and provide a description if you feel it is needed.

Note: if you are submitting it for commercial stock and/or canvas then make sure you obtain and attach the proper releases.
