Photographer's Note

This old man was sitting & smoking in a corner of a large piazza in San Gimingnano.
The contrast between the sadness and Loneliness of his pose and the joy of the visitors outside of this dark corner was striking to me.
You'll note that your eyes jump from the old man to the happy crowd outside. This is due to the fact they are both in focus, and is intentional to constantly show the contrast I mentioned before.
Postpro - lighting was altered here to reflect the way I see the scene. Shadows were enhacned on the old man while outside I emphasized the highlights more.

--Guy.
