Another picture taken during our wonderful photographic holiday in Menorca in mid-May.
This is Pedro, an elderly local farmer, whom we met in the little building he has on his smallholding just outside S'Algar in east Menorca. The lighting in his little retreat was lovely and he was happy for us all to take as many photographs as we wished.
Shot in RAW and converted and edited in PSE9.

That is about as good as it gets !
Was that as seen, willing subject, posed, specially lit ? Whatever, it works just brilliantly.
A worthy two pointer !

You are lucky to have such a willing and smiley subject.
Great details too of his weathered face

Fabulous detail - a great face full of character. I like the close crop. Pedro was the name of my bull terrier when I was small child - love the name!
An excellent image from your holiday.
Best wishes, Ann
