I often see this streetside florist whenever I visit the Waltair Uplands area of Vizag. He is always surrounded by lovely colours and always appears fresh and cool like the flowers that he sells.
I had posted this photo yesterday but I edited it (by raising the colour temp) following a suggestion by one of my TE favourites.

Very good use of a shallow dof with good sharpness in this superb portrait of the florist. I may have added a little more yellow and possibly magenta. Excellent tight framing and the different varieties of flowers add interest. Have a great weekend!

This is really nicely done. A fine portrait and the fact that the man is looking at the flowers makes this more special. I think if he were looking at the camera, it would not have the same impact as this. I love how you balanced the light across the scene too, it looks like it would have been easy to blow the lit out in some part of other, but this is done perfectly. TE background being decked in flowers too makes is man very much part of the scene. Great shot, thanks for sharing.
All the best

Hi Satya, I see flower girls all the time, but flower man is rare. Great colours with perfect focus on the man and the red roses. The blurry yellow flowers in the front and the flowers in the BG definitely give nice depth. Perfect moment captured the expression of this man with good clarity. Thank for sharing

Flower and man are not the perfect match :-) but you have done well over here to make them one over here. This is a fine shot, well framed by the OOF yellow flowers and sharp focus on the subject. I love the colours in the image, which I see in your note that it has been enhanced. Good DL shot and street photography. Thanks for sharing.

I see this is your 50th post on the Trekearth. My congratulations on your first small milestone.
This photo reminds me old postcards from 1950th, when the b&w cards were painted by colors inks.
Good portrait of the seller. TFS!
