Lovely portrait of a man who looks like he's had a very hard life. Behind him, though, is a child who is obviously happy to see him and other family around. This speaks volumes. Just wonderful and heart-wrenching at the same time. Congratulations. Judy

I like how is posing for you and the focus on him , but also the background is an important element in composition
all the best

Nice intense expression on the man and the background is well blurred so as not to take away from the man's face. Maybe the woman and children could have been cropped altogether, but they do put the man in context.

A well chosen photo for b/w format. I believe it adds to the mood with the expression on the mans face and you have done a nice job with the balance in your framing and composition.

This is a fine docu-style picture portrait. Good dof, the family in the bg is present (even a little smile from the boy) but the focus in the man's face and draws us into the story behind his eyes, a story of hardship I imagine.
Strong photography. Thanks for sharing it & enjoy your weekend.

I like very much your framing with a sharp portrait in one side in front of a blurred street, showing this man in his usual landscape.

Excellent shot. Love the framing with a daily scene in background. It makes your shot interesting in every point.
A good work.
