[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another portrait of sorts. This is the brother of the woman whose photo preceeds this one. The detail was what made me post this. This has been heavily cropped, desaturated and slightly adjusted for contrast.
A friendly man who loved seeing the photo of himself on the camera. I always show the subject the picture I have taken. They love to see it and it probably makes them less reticent for the next request.
I always ask and that means having to walk away which is sometimes very difficult when you have an excellent opportunity.

Wow! A pretty punchy crop and certainly the result has impact - a powerful image indeed. B/W suits this perfectly. I might prefer more overall sharpness - don;t know what the EXIF data is, so no suggestion to make there.

But, all in, this is a dramatic portrait and the tilt helps, it adds an extra something. Very nice.
