As I was walking in the park I noticed this gentleman giving a history lecture on Newfoundland and Labrador history. I stopped, took a few pictures, and listened intently and to my surprise I learned quite a bit. This guy had all the visual tools necessary to keep one interested. After around fifteen minutes, and twenty pictures later I decided to move on. There were around twelve people listening and asking questions. What an interesting performance!
This photograph was cropped and sharpened U. S. M. in the lab color.

Very well done, I like the expressions on his face. He seems to like what he is doing and the way you took the picture I have the feeling he is on 'PAUSE'waiting for a 'RESUME' from someone

Funny old guy. It's a good picture because it tells a lot about him.

You cut the man's figure at a perfect spot along his midline. It is not disturbing at all. I would like to maybe see a tighter crop along the top to create a bit more tension between his hat and the border of the frame. His sign is a bit repetitive, nothing you can do about that as a photographer but it makes me wonder if this lecture was for 8 year olds. I love the interesting shadows you have captured here both on the document and on his face. Good job.
