Still love his attitude and pose - so effective in B&W. Superb portrait.

perfect and spot on this time. great toning. could also work in landscape format (hands and underarm cropped away) but that's not critisism, just a suggestion for a possible variation.

this is nice.... i like the depth of field clearly isolating the guy and a sharp clear face do realy help a lot to quality...great photo....

Great portrait especially for a grab shot. He does have a very interstig face which you have captured well.
Sorry about the messup this morning with my shot.

Absolutely fanatstic photo. The setting, the composition, but also that fantastic Mamiya lens -- look at the quality of the overall image, the appearance of the out of focus parts especially. Great work. I expect that with all the digital power arround us the traditional vocabulary will become more and more attractive for this kind of work. It's subtly different, that's the strength. Regards, Bert

Does look as if he did not want to have his image taken. Africa can be like this, great portrait. Ron.
