Another photo of the wrinkled man taken near the Holy Mosque in Kairouan, Tunisia. As soon as I saw this face I knew I had to take a few pictures. I love faces that are expressive and full of character. More or less asked permission to take some photos and gave him some small change afterwards. Never entirely sure when to do that or not but just decide on instinct and usually get it right.
Auto level correction, darkened highlights by 20% and sharpened via USM in PSE3.

Very very good. It's not obvious you worked the pict with PS, very important, I think.

Nice one! Like the expression of the hardened man. Love his tan too.
