Hello Saeid. What a lot of character in this old gentleman and accentuated by being in monochrome. - Richard
Lovely portrait in mono , Saeid, of one who is obviously in tune with what is going on around him Love the 'portrait' reflection in the bicycle lamp. Well spotted and very well captured
Nice image well captured.
Well done Saeid, a great candid capture of what looks like quite a character, certainly very photogenic! The choice of B&W for presentation is perfect!
Very well captured and presented, Saeid. Carol

Agreed - well done.
An excellent candid
only too happy to take this to 30.
I remember a guy like that in Amsterdam... he used to be a teacher and had become disallusioned with life.But he was so entertaining to talk to.
Sadly he died of exposure ...... A great loss
brilliant mono conversion......Mick
Great portrait with very expressive face Saeid!
An amazing portrait - really well done!
Nothing wrong with this Saeid, a super portrait, looks especially good in mono.
1st class portrait, very well done.
Very good - as long as you catch some details on the face of the old man - it`s perfect - superb lighting from the back - well done and keep going my friend

You have done very well with your first portrait Saeid, lots of excellent detail.
Nice capture Saeid of this interesting looking character. It makes me wonder what his life tale is. Nice use of Mono and rear light catching the brilliance of his white long hair. I would love to see a portrait crop of this without the invasion of bicycle in setting and a stronger blur /clone out of wire rail. Keep up the good work
superb capture , well done ... angie
He looks such an interesting character Saeid . and a lovely portrait from you - it works perfectly in B/W - Sue
I think this is really good, great how the old guy's expression is captured and the sun catching his grey hair.
Wonderful photo-op that you have captured, Saeid, of this pensive & fascinating older man. The expression photographed is truly unique & 'evokes many interpretations for the viewer.' The clarity & tonality is generally very good. There are, I feel, a few things that would make your photograph have more impact. First off, an easy fairly moderate 'crop from the top of the image frame,' downwards, would bring in the old man's face, more into a focus perspective. I would crop,...just to the top of the 'uppermost hairs.' There are two 'slight highlight distractions,' which distract my eye, which if 'excluded from the image frame,' and if cropped, would also give more 'straight focus into the details & facial expression of the man.' Cropping 4-5 cm, from the left, would 'exclude the bright highlight,' on top of the bench. A crop 'from the bottom of the frame, upwards(3-4 centimeters),' would exclude the bright 'highlights of his knee,' in the right lower corner of the image frame. Maybe, 'tad off your contrast setting,' would just tone down this highlights on both his shoulders, and be less distracting. I really like your excellent capture of this man, and offer these suggestions, with the intention of improving, 'an already artistic shot.'
I have slightly re-evaluated my critique. My modification,...would be to give slightly more room above the top of the old man's head, maybe 1.5 to 2 centimeters(from the tip of the highest hairs) of 'less of a crop,' from the top of the image frame. This I do, because, since I have not performed a modification(I don't think I can, because, I am not an e2 member), & have considered this, 're-assessment,' because of the concomitant crop from below, as mentioned previously, to omit the 'highlighted knee,' in the right lower corner of the image frame. I would "not do anything" to the 'right side of the image frame,' since inclusion of part of the bicycle gives the image some 'added interest & reference point.' Hope, that this helps, Saeid.
Love this portrait shots on the street,
Nice job,might have cropped a little of the top,
An excellent candid Saeid, he looks a real character
Absolutely beautiful light!...Love this very much!!
Cracking mono / candid / portrait ... Excellent.
A great capture, love to know what he's thinking.
