I had overlooked this among my Cuba images. He was sitting in some quite dark shade but I hope I've increased the exposure enough. I've also given him some Topaz treatment.
Thanks for looking and for your time.

I like his relaxed attitude, the textures in the background, and your composition, Ann. He has an interesting expression, a furrowed brow and lots of body hairTongue!

Being a fan of street candid’s this upload instantly moved to the top of the charts for me. If presenting as a camera club entry maybe you best tone down the white to the right hand of the frame as some grumpy camera club judges have a thing about large areas of white on the edge of the frame. Other than that - I can see no reason to award less than top marks here. Smashing.
