[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this photo at a local fiesta in a mountain village.
I didn't know who it was, he just looked interesting.
After when I showed the pictures to some local friends, they told me he was a famous men in the north of the Island, who had become rich working very hard, and starting all kind of bussiness (shops, plantations)
Somehow I think that the trong character of this person show well in this portrait.
Hope you like it and TFS
Have a nice week.

Holla Karin
beau portrait bien sérieux de la personne
bon choix du b&w

Hi Karin, Terrific portrait of this man. I like all of the different textures in his clothing. Also, he is not bothered by the camera. I do think that I would have preferred to see his hat in it's entirety as it looks interesting and part of the culture.


Hi. Excellent portrait, your subjects character is captured well. Thanks for sharing. Regards Phil.

Bonjour Karin

Superbe portrait noir et blanc!!
J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage mettant en valeur le regard pétillant de cet homme!

Nice B&W picture! I like this portrait, well contrasted.

Bonjour Karin
un strong character oui, pas commode le monsieur j'ai l'impression; la réussite sociale mais aussi le travail dur peuvent ôter un peu d'aménité dans la façon dont certains vous regardent et je trouve ça socialement dommage, mais cette photo qui rend tellement bien la personnalité supposée est une réussite totale.Jusqu'à la rugosité de la texture de la peau qui semble révéler un caractère.
Je l'aurais bien vu trompettiste de jazz ce monsieur
Bonne journée Karin

HI Karin
He does have a look of determination, a bit of a tough look.
Your close up shows well the ravages of time on his face.
Its a great shot and for some reason I keep thinking he would be great as the Godfather

I like this portrait Karin,you have captured his strength of character well. His eyes are still very much alive,you may be taking his portrait,but I think he is capturing your personality & your actions without the use of a camera:)
Great facial capture,clear & sharp,I like the catchlight in his eyes.
Well Taken.

Hi Karin..I like your portrait of this man...strong features and tones...nice work.
