Just came back from a 5 days trip to Vıenna and I shall post many new captures I made there in this series "Vienna in spring".
This one also shows one of those coach (fiaker) driwer in Vienna in his traditional outfit !
Beş günlük bir Viyana seyahatinden döndüm. Sizlerle burada "Viyanada Bahar" adını verdiğim bu seride pek çok kare paylaşacağım. Bu karede de Viyananın o ünlü faytoncularından birisi, orijinal kıyafeti içinde !

You've created a superb portrait of this gentleman, incisive, colourful and with stunning defintion. The glance and expression are well captured and the subject is perfectly framed with selective focus, making it pop out from the blurred background and bringing out the sharp detail and personality. A very precise composition. Very well done indeed.

eccellente colpo d'occhio e ritratto impeccabile di un personaggio che sicuramente è originale per il suo particolare abbigliamento.
Una foto che va anche elogiata perchè non è stata fatta con una tele spinto e probabilmente è il crop di uno scatto ben più ampio.
Ciao e buona giornata

I don't think that I have ever seen such a pin-sharp portrait as this! Even at its full size of over 2500 x 3000 pixels, the sharpness and details and astounding!
Now this is a very smartly dressed fellow with his sparkling white shirt, perfectly tied tie, checked waitcoat and plum coloured jacket with not a speck of dust. Just a pity he doesn't seem to be keen on the idea of having his photograph taken, but it's a fabulous photograph with gorgeous light and colours, perfect exposure and, as I say, incredible details and sharpness.

A clean sharp image that shows excellent control of focus and depth of field with the background being nicely blurred so as to make the man stand out. The only place where the background and the man appear to merge is in the lower part due to the colour of his coat matching the red background. But no matter his head is against the black background and that is the main part of the portrait. I like the way the sunglasses sit on his hat. They are curiously at odds with the rest of his outfit.

A great portrait, taken with such amazing detail and clarity! The colors are very vibrant and burst from the screen. He does not look like a happy man though, and I think that adds to the charm of the end result.

Oh, this is a great portrait, Mesut. So much character in him - both in the wonderful facial expression which would do him nicely in a British comedy, and the bright, distinctive clothing, which marks him as a dapper and flamboyant figure. Remarkable clarity as well. Thanks!

Good evening Mesut,
Besides the red-wine color of the tie & suit, his face expression created a remarkable portrait.
I don't think he liked the idea being photographed, very strong look he gave, his eyes narrowed and as flashing-glare.
A marvelous taken picture.

Excellent sharpness, wonderful colors.
Have a nice weekend

Lieber Mesut, das ist ein tolles Bild, schon fast eine "Studie". Bei dem Objektiv musst Du schon ganz schöne nahe dran gewesen sein, um den Kopf dieses gepflegten Droschken-Kutschers einzufangen. Der Hintergrund könnte nicht besser sein, um ihn hervorzuheben. Ein faszinierendes Foto!
Ich hoffe, Dir geht es gut!
Herzliche Grüße aus dem noch etwas kühlen Frühling in Deutschland!

He is so smart! Tie in accordance with the vest, and the dark background enhances the red hues of the clothes.

A very nice portrait shot of this traditionally dressed coach driver. I really like your timing to catch his expression...he looks mildy perturbed that perhaps he can't remember where he left his sunglasses. :) A wonderful depth of field, the blurred background helps keep all focus on the detail and personality of this gentlman. One of the understated attractions of Vienna, and one which you've photographed and presented with character appeal and human interest. Very well done! Enjoy the rest of the weekend. All the best.

You have captured well the akward expression of the man. The portrait is showing the détails aof his phisionomy. The good luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.
