I spotted this Tailor in his tiny workshop in a back street in Haridwar.

I've tried to draw attention to the man by adding a vignette as I thought he looked a little bit lost in his surroundings. I also selectively lightened his face and hands a little.

I think it looks a little HDR, but hopefully not too much, and I'd appreciate your opinions on this aspect.

I've uploaded the original shot straight out of the camera without any processing too.

All constructive critique is very welcome.

Thanks for taking the time to look.

Good one.
Very much a man in his environment portrait and it works well.
I think you were probably right to crop to concentrate the eye towards the man although the full frame is interesting and would work.
I personally would go for a crop, say 8x10 format and include more space above the sewing machine. Not just because square give a certain look that in my view doe not suit this image, but to put some length into the image and his workshop
Being in his red pullover makes him easy to spot while all the stuff shows and emphasises his workplace. He is not lost to me, there are lots of interesting things in the picture apart from him. A man and his workplace.
I don't think it's too HDR looking, there are a lot of rich colours there.
regards
Ian
