Was after a stark contrast detail with this fellah; remarkable face and clothes stuck in a time warp.

A classic use of b&w for portraiture.

Cheers guys Smile

Not an easy shot, considering the 'old feck' never keeps still Smile and the sunshine was 'full-on' scorchio!

Cole, I live in wales dude. Lucky guess, or did you guess from the PF? Smile

Kind regards everyone,

Michael

Works very well as a character study, liking the composition and the high contrast look. The blown area on his cheek is a bit of a distraction..was it over exposed in the original shot, or have you done some contrast 'twiddling' thats brought it out?

Hi Mark. The light was an issue, as was the fidgety subject Smile. In the end, I worked with what I had, burning and dodging in PS. This is only my first edit; a second one is on the cards, and hopefully I can sort out the over exposed areas..

Ads, he(in the photo) certainly does have opinions, all of which containa combination of telling it like it is, with the odd dash of expletives Smile

Cheers guys.
