Hard work doesn't seem to have dulled the joy in this man's life Takero, his smile is genuine reaching all the way up to his shining eyes. He makes me smile too! A lovely shot demonstrating your excellent use of DOF and attractive in B&W. Warmest regards Rosemary

Hello dear Takero,
this is a wonderful contagious smile, it's impossible not to smile back, even if you try:) I like very much the immediacy and spontaneity of your capture. You had a marvellous interaction with your subject which you've passed on to the viewer most effectively. There's superb depth and sharpness and the blurry backdrop is comprhehensible and interesting. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great Sunday,

I agree, that smile is wide and genuine and infectious, this shot makes me smile too! A really excellent portrait, and your choice of black and white is really well considered.
Thanks as always
