Man in Hat

Photo of the Week by tommyt

Saw this chap approaching dialling on his mobile and I had to take a shot, soon as I did he looked up and I knew I"d been sussed. Moving swiftly on I was pleased with the final result.

I do like his eyes straight into your camera...Imagine a square crop of this picture..A portrait format cropping the blurred man and tree on the right background

Great street shot. Love the light on the frames of his glasses.
Best wishes,

Andrew

I agree with them others. I also agree with Giulio's cropping suggestion.

A cracker! A well deserved POTW.

May I ask what lens you used?

Thanks everybody for your kind comments and in reply to Simonmac, the lens was the 50-200mm WR which came with the 18-55mm WR as part of the Pentax K30 package deal... I only used it because of the damp sometimes raining conditions and have now traded in as part exchange for the Pentax K 3-11 but decided to keep the 18-55WR lens. Looking back in hindsight maybe I"ve traded the wrong one!!!

Fantastic photograph, really good. The facial expression is captivating, but I also like the scale rule sticking out of his bag, well I guess he's an architecture student then!

Great street portrait - a worthy POtW and another gold star for the wonderful K30 which seems to get a lot of criticism on here.
