Great shot here. The details are spot on and the candid expression is very natural. Putting it in black and white really made the difference. Well done.

You have a way of capturing a persons emotions with your camera. At first Native Americans believed that having their photos taken would steak their souls ,in your case that might just be true because you sure can capture their emotions with your talent
thank you again for sharing

Comment from Bruce Heming


I very much like the expression on the man's face however it seems there is some loss of detail in the whites. I think further that a wider lens opening would have benefited the overall Portrate by placing the busy background more out of focus

Comment from mudge


A good candid portrait of "a man in the street"!
It works well in B/W, and no doubt would have been equally as good in colour
As you must be aware, there is considerable burnout on his face, beard and hat, caused by over-exposure. Even so it still is a pleasant image!
Other problems are the busy distracting background (ie part heads, camera, bottles etc) and the off-vertical verticals.
The latter can be easily rectified by straightening them
The distracting background can be solved (assuming you have photo editing software) by Selecting it, and applying Gaussian Blur (this is best and easiest done using Levels)

    your welcome
Comment from Dick Lee Shia


Good human interest shot.
However the face got to much harsh light that even the subject is squinting.
The overblown cap grabs so much attention.
Nice framing.
Pin sharp focusing.
Thanks for sharing...

Very good portrait of this older gentleman. I like the expression you caught on his face - great storytelling ability. The use of black and white adds impact to the image. Very good composition. Suzanne
