In my imagination, Neil Armstrong was looking through the window when they approached the moon. That's the moment when the man facing his dream.

Stunning piece of work -- great detail like the reflection in the glass and the eyes

Nice work . Like the closeup approach, and the planet reflection helps a bit to think this could be a moon visit . The face makes him appear rather old with all the wrinkles but maybe the voyage has aged him. Good work all around.

Thank you for your nice comments. I just hope that there was a window in Apollo 11 LOL. I exaggerated his wrinkles to deliver the feeling that they had to work very hard to get into the Moon. Anyway, this is the good chance for me to get familiar with his face. Even though he's famous and I admire him, I usually don't remember his image well

Author ,something has been bothering me about your work and I just now figured it out, should be easy to fix. The left eye ( from our view ) is disproportional compared to the right side. neither photo shows it as such. Sorry to bring this up but you have a good work that can be even better with a small touch up.

wonderful image , great usage and presentation of reflection and reflective surfaces. outstanding eye colour and facial hair construct.

author says:

Thank you all for your comments. @Glockman: yes, you're right. My initial purpose is just drawing the face with one side closer to the window, so the right halve should be larger than the other one, but I exaggerated the right eye a bit. It can be fixed easily for sure but I didn't have any Internet connection yesterday, so now it's impossible do change anything. Anyway, I really appreciate your feedback.
