This man had drove up from the big city of Guayaquil to visit his mother in a small town named Santa Ana in Ecuador. I found his look interesting with the cubana hat and asked if I could take a portrait of him; at first, he didn't want his photo taken. I then took a quick photo and showed him the display and that seemed to put him abit at ease.

nice sharp portrait of a VERY skeptical guy. I just love the bird cage in the f/g. Fantastic, special detail.
Personally, I would have cropped more off on the left to put the guy more off-center and to get rid of the intense light on that wall.

Very nice authentic portrait. It makes me want to know more about him. I like how it doesn't seem too staged. I like the rough concrete behind him and the bird in the corner. He does seem like someone who has driven a long way only to drive back. Well done!
