Tobacco farmer

By jond
I know this isn't the greatest portrait ever but within the context that I never take people pics, know nothing about flash photography, can't speak Spanish and he couldn't speak English, and I only had a few seconds to ask if I could take his pic, get him to pose, hand him a peso and then run to catch my bus I was quite pleased! Constructive criticism would be greatly appreciated (for the next time I happen to be in a Cuban tobacco barn!). I might try uploading the colour version tomorrow - not sure which one I prefer.

It's great, could have been taken almost any time in the last half a century.
