One of your best I think Ann.

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!

"What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare?"

Wrong posture, of course, but the justification remains.
Lovely candid.

Well composed, Ann and excellent clarity - wrinkles, veins and warts n all (if he had them!!). The desaturated colour works well.

A certain style that many men manage daily around the world Ann, well found and captured. How they manage to remain supple into older life after so much inaction defeats me.

Your treatment has brought out the textures in the bg perfectly, Ann, without destroying any of the vital detail of that very relaxed model. Like the de-saturated look as well.

Being a fan of street candidís 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.
