Wonderful portrait. If I didn'tknow better, I could easily place this man on Haight Street in San Francisco.....typical "Roll your own" kind of guy.
The lighting is magnificent.

Hi Lucie, A really sublime portrait from this exeptional man. The light is indeed really beautiful. Excellent colours and composition. I think I would choke from a smoke like that! Great work! Heel mooi werk! Sabine

As long as they aren't $$$$ notes!
Good one Lucie! What a large roll-your-own. Well spotted, thank you.

That is an awsome roll up, wonder what kind of 'tobacco' he smokes!
Oh yeah, great portrait as well.

Holy smoke!!! - you should do more portraits, Lucie. This is soooo good. As you say, the light is just perfect - the tones - the colours - the dof - really really nice.
Wonder how long time a cigar like this can last :)

Hi Lucie- wow, that is some cigarette!! Fantastic portrait taken under a wonderful light. It reminds me of a japanese invention. I will post a photo to workshop.

Can't imagine putting this stuff in my mouth - yack!
But it's a local custom and I even believe the guy gets a huge pleasure out from his 'treat'.
Beautiful light and contrast between his redish face against the green bokeh.

it's a nice portrait with a great light. This kind of cigar is locally called "cheeroot".

Wow, after a joint like this one I would travel all the way to the stars. There is something in his eyes which catches my attention.
