I love these 'real life' portraits. You have captured an expression that suggests he is making a strongly felt opinion.
I would love to hear your reasons for using an iso 100 giving an out of focus foreground. There could be a useful tip for the rest of us.

Hi Ivor

Thanks for your comments Grin When taking a portrait like this I like to use a shallow DOF to draw the viewer to the emotion and character of my subject, what is in the forground of the image is not as important as the eyes and face of the sitter.

excellent, gritty shot...feels a little `shadowy' in places but that doesn't detract from the subject matter Smile

Fabulous portrait. I quite like the contrast in this image.
