This is a beautiful portrait of a guitar player and in my opinion it is the glorious warm evening light coming in from the right which makes this one so special. The man's face, his clothing and his guitar are beautifully lit and he stands out wonderfully against a much darker and nicely out of focus background which is completely non-distracting.
Glorious warm light, fine vibrant colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness on this traditional musician.

Great portrait, Steve. Light, colours and details are amazing. The blurred background is perfect to no distract the main subject.

I like this natural portrait, he is well placed to receive some natural reflection of light which illuminates him beautifully and does not burn out any of the great details. He also fills the frame nicely. Well done.
