Street Portraiture isnít easy, the vagaries of natural light and the response of a chosen subject can be a challenge.....but, occasionally things come together beautifully, as here.

The light was perfect as I approached one of our very regular Buskers who was in mid-song.....we always chat for a few minutes.
He is very photogenic, I simply asked him to look into my lens, so he did.....just one press of the shutter, once focus was confirmed....
A donation placed in his guitar case, and we were both extremely happy.

The colour version is here too.......I like both.

A very pleasing portrait of this kindly looking gentleman. Well suited to mono.

Yes, the light is perfect & you have captured his cheery character well with fine contract & claritySmile
p.s. both versions are splendid but I have as slight preference for the coloured one to see his pinkish complexion contrasting with his white beard.

both excellent, but the mono really works for me in a timeless way
Love the b&W version but both are good portraits GrinGrinGrinGrin

Mono my preference.
Your approach is how it should be. And to get the shot in one, how it should work too, job done.
