hello Ramon

Wow a great portrait here. The pov, the old bench, and the awesome capture of him looking at the bird. Wonderful work here. I really like this work

Hi Ramon,
Good portrait . Nice placement of the suject in your composition . Sharp even if it have been taken at 1/50 sec. Good use of the natural light and well detailed picture with a nice blured background to put the emphase on the main subject . I hope you will give a print to your model .

Hi Ramon,

I think this is a very nice portrait, with good off-center placement of your subject. Your tech settings look like they were good for this also. It might be interesting to also get a closeup of the interaction between the gentleman and his bird. Since the bird is not very large, and blends in with the color of the bench, it tends to get lost in the scene.

Hi Ramon,
A superb portrait of this man in his traditional costume demonstrating his bird. Very nice warm lighting to render such pleasant composition.
Good use of shallow focusing to obtain such a blurred BG to produce a 3D effect.
Very neat work.
My regards,

Francis Xavier
