Hollywood’s cow boy?
Guess guess dear….. Who is he?
All in vain…. let me tell you, he is a cook dear.
Cook of a road side small Dhaba at Drass. We had breakfast there and by chance to see the hygienic conditions of kitchen I went in side and saw him. I find his attire peculiar and my studio was his kitchen, no tripod used, kitchen was painted dark blue from inside so very dim light, I opted for no flash just requested him to come near the window and see out side my model was so cooperative give me five minutes time for clicking. I have done here no harsh post processing no background changing just removed the noise as there was considerable noise because of using higher ISO so it is bit soft focus at face please bear with it.

Beautiful portrait, enriched by a very interesting note!
So we see that such a portrait is possible also without hard postprocessing.
Thank you for sharing

Un excellent portrait à la manière d'une peinture. Même à 1600 ISO, le grain est faible. Beau travail.

colors are very nice balanced but maybe due to the high ISO is the quality less compared to your other posts, the black lines around his hat could be reduced and with a local sharpening his eyes could be maybe slightly improved. I like that you included the well colorcontrasted background with soft texturing, it brings the portrait very well out. Maybe a tip: local undoing grains can help too ....
