Amazing portrait. Looks a bit like Dennis Hopper.

Hi Mario, great image. The mans face tells so many stories and a lifetime of struggle. I have done a couple of mods for you. The first one I've done in black and white. Adjusting it in several stages in Photoshop CS6. The second one took me a little longer. Your image is a little orange, so I've adjusted the temperature, contrast, shadows, highlights, darkened the bright area's. I also used the dodge tool to brighten the mans eyes a little and boosted the clarity. I hope you like my mods and keep on taking great images.

Great picture that steps back in time.

I have uploaded a mod that I hope you like.

I found the image a little too brown and in PS and went to "Image/Adjustment/Match Colour" then click the "Neutralize" box and adjusted "Fade". This I find a quick and easy way to balance the colour.

A very handsome fellow with a great expression.
It seems a tad too much red on my monitor. Perhaps do a color balance. Robert's mod looks about right to me.

Terrific expression on the mans face mario.


A few suggestions for improvement:

Uour shutter speed was a little too slow. Might have needed 1/200 and ISO 800; the camera focused on his beard, and the front of the hat, and not on the eyes. Both his eyes are soft/not sharp. Are you using the single focus point, and not the multiple points?


The face is a little underexposed, as its shaded by the hat.

Colour balance is really off, - is this due to some post processing? Shoot RAW for better control.

The position of the man in the frame would be a lot better if he had more space on the left, and less on the right.


So after all that, it can be improved with some work, as in the mod.

Ive corrected colour as much as possible. The strongest cast was magenta. Ive selectively applied sharpening to the eyes and forehead. Ive cropped and added space on the left. I think it makes a very big difference.


Loaded a duo tone also.

We can Skype this one when we get together.



Hope this helps,



Regards



Willie

Just a niggle about the crop which no-one seems to have mentioned ..... I think it's a little tight with the hat being cropped on both sides. A much better image for me if there was more space to the left of the image so that all that side of the hat was included and the guy had some space to look into. That apart a fine portrait study.
