Downtown early morning, a good opportunity to take portraits of persons with a backlight. Waiting for the moment when he breathes.

Un agréable portrait en contre jour, dans une lumière dorée qui nous réchauffe un peu

Pas mal ce contre-jour doré qui a su garder juste ce qu'il fallait de détails sur le visage pour que ce soit plus qu'un seul jeu de silhouette.
Bien vu et bien réalisé,

A very nice portrait! It often pays off to wait and not only look for what is there right now.

I'm taken back some, really surprised there isn't much more feedback prior to mine...this is a fantastic shot! I always appreciate an image with strong back light, not an easy thing to achieve so well, but I think this turned out great. It has a cinematic feel about it, could be the opening sequence to a dramatic movie. I absolutely love the background colors of golden light, seemingly a contrast of warmth against the colder air that can be seen from this gentleman's breath. A calm and collective moment captured with proficiency. Bravo!

you have explained a new technique to me today,I shall have to await an opportunity to try it out..
It works very well for you in this clever shot,the out take of breath adds an interesting element to the silhouetted man with the back light also working it`s charm.Very nicely done.
Kind regards Les.

This looks fantastic full of life shot resulting in good back lighting effect, nicely composed and just love how the strong warm light is shining through creating the awesome halo on the profile of a partially silhouetted mystery man. The clean lines and sharp edges combine to lead the eye deeper by focusing on that sparkling line of stinging light. This is awesome and powerful that I love to shoot too, and your skill in exposure control is second to none,, first class capture with mood & the art of photography!! Brilliant capture

I hope you had a merry Christmas and are now recovering and relaxing from all the excess. This is an interesting portrait in backlight. His breath, quite visible is a very compelling element in the photo and the tight bookmark frame has had an interesting effect too. The golden light is attractive.

a captivating portrait, full of mystery. I like very much the way you adjusted the frame on the gentleman's posture, enhancing the sense of intensity created by the contrasts. I like the breath you captured so clearly but am more fascinated by the playful contrasts. This looks like a scene from a film and makes the viewer anticipate movements and create stories. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening and a wonderful year!
