Hi my dear David
Wonderful portrait shot shot!!!
Well considered composition/ framework and sharp/clear description in the detail. Vivid color tone and sharp contrast is quite attractive and marvelous.
Thanks for sharing and have a good day!

I just wrote a comment to Peppe,who posted a photo of the same man.
He seems to make a lot of money with his strange face and teeth....
Great shot,perfect sharpness at him and a nice background.

I like the way you've corrected the vertical on the man and let the background take care of itself. This way you've added an additional dimension to the shot. In my business we call this a "Dutch Tilt".
What an expression, you've produced a brilliant reaction from him, nicely directed.
Image properties are all superb, excellent work.

David, excellent moment captured and the slight tilt works so well here. I would had tried to add a bit more space to the right of the frame.
Good choice of camera :)

Fantastic shot, I'm not even going to try to describe it. One of the most authentic portrait shot of the hummble life of the people in that part of the world. That genuine smile and cheerfulness is priceless. It goes to my list of favorites.

David, I know that man...everyone who goes to Hoi An brings back a photo of him. He has such a spectacular smile and face! What is different about your picture is the fact that you are in the boat with him and obviously your fantastic post-treatment.
excellent shot as usual!
