I did a double take on the statue at first, then realized what it was. Good use of juxtaposition, nice street shot. Has a universal feel to it this one.
very nice image, like it being in b&w.
Lovely observation, and the toning suits the subject perfectly. I did the same double-take as Anne!
Thank you so much to everyone. The statue is called 'The Old Man of Paris', and is modelled on a gentleman who frequented the streets of Havana in the 60s and 70s, and who masqueraded as a Parisian, but who was Cuban through and through. He was a genuinely fine character, according to legend and so is suitably commemorated in bronze. It's considered lucky to stroke his beard or hand - hence the polished sheen.
Simply excellent. Great composition and toning

If you’ve ever dealt with high-contrast lighting - a landscape under direct sunlight or a brightly-lit screne shot from inside a darkened room - you’ll appreciate what Active D-Lighting has to offer!
If you have the camera on a tripod during live view, you can zoom in on your subject in the monitor for precise focus.
For subjects that are in motion, choose Dynamic-area AF.
If your subject is poorly lit, shutter speed will slow and pictures may be blurred. You can choose a high ISO sensitivity for faster shutter speeds and sharper images.
This option controls how autofocus adjusts to sudden large changes in the distance to the subject during continuous-servo AF.
