Magnifique portrait et excellente clarté d'image qui nous fait bien voir les détails du visage. Bonne idée de publier en noir et blanc.
Um abraco e um bom fin-de-semana,

Hi Antonio. I think that character portraits are always better in Black and white. The wide aperture reduces the background to a blur and concentrates attention on the subject. The focus is crisp, allowing us to see the weathered appearance of age and experience. The exposure is excellent with only the smallest evidence of fill-flash from the hat brim and the composition is perfect, placing the subject off-centre yet allowing space around him.

An emotional photograph. You have managed to capture his feeling, with all his facial wrinkles around his eyes. It seems he has had a hard life. This photo is perfect in black & white; it would not be the same in color. Great job!
