I really like the composition and the way that the background is thrown totally out of focus. I feel that the light areas are too light though and the dark ones too dark, so I have reduced the highlights in my mod and also the shadows. I have also tried to brighten his eyes a little too. I was finding the light area behind his head a little distracting too so have tried a closer, square crop.

This is a very well constructed shot.

The rails out of focus, running together and closer with the perspective, and the position of the mans face work so well.

I can suggest only minor changes.

The camera has focused on the eye furthest from the camera, so the near eye can be sharpened; there is someone walking by the side of his head, - you could remove the person; I like the muted colours, however I would increase exposure a little on the face, and add some contrast.

View the mod LARGE.

Well done.

Prospero Anno.


regards


Willie

Hi Javier,

I agree with Anne and Willie with regards to the background focus, the rails work really well, to my eye's Wink

I also think that if you have a photo editing programe you do need to remove the person walking out of the side of this guy's face Wink , as sugested by Willie. Lighten the guy a little to bring out more facial detail but not the background I think thats ok.

I've posted a mod but to be fair it's along the same lines as the two you already have Grin

This for me is a good capture Javier, it works.

Take care
Martin

This is a first class image and composition marred only by the under exposure on his face. I think it is the exposure mode that is responsible. A bit of work with the dodge tool should help. A low power flash burst even more.
