I really like all the textures in this, but there's a couple of white spots to the above right of his head that I might remove, also a bit of a shame you lose the edge of the blanket in the top left. Love all the character in this guy though

The white spots are the background (some netting in the shop) I had the choice of leaving it or burning the background darker. As it was street photography I left it to show it was 'real'.

This seems a tad overworked to me now. It's become more of an illustration than a photograph.

Great portrait but I think I'd like to see a softer version too

Now that is what you call a 'lived in' face! Great example of street portraiture.

I like this portrait vey much but I can't quite work out what is worrying me about it. Looking at the other comments I think Floreus has made a valid comment it is more like a drawing than a photograph.....ie almost too good for street photography. The superb textures in the clothing compete a bit with the skin with its folds and stubble.

I wonder how close you were and whether or not he was resigned to having his picture taken or just trying to ignore you? The gaze into the far distance has its own story to tell.

Cracking portrait. Great eye contact and the B&W is great for this interesting face.
