This lad at the fishmarket posing with his pride of the day ... shot in low available light.

Originally in colour, I converted to monochrome and adjusted levels in PS. Should be viewed large to extract the best out of this portrait ... hit the F11 button when in large, you will not regret it!

Thanks for viewing.

Joe
