This is one good informal street portrait! The eye contact and expression are caught beautifully and there are just enough other elements to give some context and environment. Of course excellent clarity and sharpness! Very good work.

Hello Elaine. This is a very nice street portrait. Nice expression. Good with the eye contact. Does not express miserabilism, rather dignity in simple life. Very sharp and pleasing soft colours. The background is simple but still succeeds to convey a certain feeling of the place. Perhaps better with a complete hand and more fruits, although one would not want his head to be at the very centre of the photo. I can just agree with Will above, very good work! Claude.

I like portraits and this is very good. A stand up guy, very colourful, sharp and you got him straight in the eye.

hello, the same medicine shot and the same person whom I can remember... I love your previous daily life shot and now this portrait. A true description of this character. Great tight framing with nice and expressive face. Nice skin tone. Great shot. Tfs.
