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 shows one of those coach (fiaker) riders in Vienna in his traditional fit !
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 !

Sahane bir portre, herhalde uzun bir objektifle çekmissindir. Viyana'yi ben de çok severim. 1986 yilinda gittigimde bir atom fizigi konferansi verdikten sonra, Beethoven'in evlerini aramaya çikmistim.
18 Nisan'da biliyorsun Istanbul'da bulunucagim. Konusmam Istanbul Modern'de.

Une prise rapprochée, un portrait très réussi et très net. Tu étais à Vienne, j'étais à Venise.
Amitiés et bon week-end.

This is a fine informal study of the coach driver, with an interesting expression, well caught. It may be my eyes, but the image looks as if it's been "squashed" top to bottom (alternatively "stretched" from side to side). By the shape of the frame, this appears to be a crop, so are you sure you held down the Shift Key as you made your selection/crop?? Otherwise a very successful street portrait.

Selam Mesut. when i saw the thumbnail, I thought of the actor Rade erbedija, now Serbian, before Yugoslav actor.But this fellow hasn't got the presence Rade has but is still photogenic. Good timing and sharpness. regards. Klaudio.

Bonjour, cher Mesut,
Très belle réussite photographique. Portrait magnifiquement dressé.
Les détails sont excellents.

Toll Mesut, wie Du hier wieder "herangegangen" bist. Ein wahrlicher Charakterkopf und ein Herr, der offenbar weiß, was er wert ist. Der fehlende Blickkontakt ist hier ganz interessant. Ein nicht alltägliches Foto ... gefällt mir sehr!
Die Bildqualität ist erstaunlich!

Un portrait de très grande qualité. L'homme a une belle tête et ses vêtements sont très originaux. J'aime beaucoup le choix de profondeur de champs.

A special character portrait, Mesut, superb moment whan taken him on photo.
Exquisite details shown, traditional outfit for the job - but a unique face expression of his own...
Have a nice weekend,

This is a delightful candid portrait of this man, perfectly taken and perfectly demonstrating his dress which, as you say, is typical of that of the coach drivers in Vienna.
He is certainly dressed for the cold weather, wearing two vests, a waitcoat, a tweed jacket and a leather jacket on top of that! Your capture is perfect and I love the vibrant colours of his tie and shirt which certainly add to the appeal of the picture. Lovely light and colours, perfect exposure and excellent details and sharpness.

A stunning portrait of this man, who has an attractive look, elegant yet informal, high quality image, allows us to recreate every detail.
Nice color, in these natural tones.
Also both sharpness, such as lighting are great.
Very well done.
Enjoy the weekend.
All the best.

Beau portrait de ce cocher de fiacre viennois que l'ai l'impression d'avoir vu lors d'un de mes voyages là bas (il faudra que je vérifie dans mes archives!)

a beautiful portrait with superb composition and attractive colours, the quality of the photo is splendid. Very lovely shot,

Hello dear Mesut,
I like this casual and spontaneous portrait very much. The gentleman attracts our attention and interest with his aspect, clothes and attitude. He stands out superbly against a blurry but comprehensible background. The diagonal of his posture and the way he's anchored to the bottom right corner of the frame, offer good dynamism that matches his expression. Lighting and colours are excellent. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

We don't often see portraits from you so this is a bit of a surprise. It is, however, a fine shot. You have captured amazingly clear details of his face and of his clothes, all set against an unobtrusive oof b/g. I love to see shots like this, so natural, so candid. It is an art to take portraits without the figure being aware of the shot and, without creating tension!
My warm regards,

A wonderful portrait of this colorful character, Mesut. I do agree with Will's comment that it seems compressed vertically somehow, or stretched horizontally, but a nice candid street shot nevertheless. Thanks!

wonderful portrait picture with a very good composition and extra good sharpness which is always very important for a good portrait.Very well done.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg

Merhaba, my friend Mesut,
this is a fantastic portrait of the man with his traditional dresses, where we can see clearly all the textures of his garment and the details of his face and hair, because of a very sharp image.
You've managed perfectly the field depth, creating a powerful bokeh.
A beautiful work.

Good Evening Mesut,
I do like close up's of interesting people in Vienna.
This chap looks like an Italian movie star.
Well managed and presented, Tfs.
