    Even with such a busy background, you have isolated your man nicely. Great composition.

    Like it.. as said nicely isolated and captured, even a bit of smoke - also very sharp, quite a long focal length i take it?

    Color Tuna? Great shot. I feel like I know this guy (I think I used play on his lawn). Fantasic character catch and superb detail.

    Folks - thank you for your responses.

    This was taken using a Voigtlander 75/2.5 Color-Heliar lens.

    Nice! I've been looking at the Bessa range of rangefinders recently and i'm temped but shots like this make me even more so.

    *just thought i'd add that i meant because the lenses look really nice, sharp etc.. not because the camera got the shot, the guy behind it did - in case it came over wrong*

    The guy seems completely unaware of your presence, allowing you to capture a perfectly natural expression rarely seen in such a close up portrait shot.

    Usually pre-focus - I rarely shoot from the hip. In this case, I remember having the camera to my face, pretending to be interested in something past him in the distance until he relaxed - at which time I managed to focus and shot a few shots with this one being the best.

    I really can't comment on this photo as I see nothing wrong with it (awesome work), but I am interested to know what sort of settings you used. Really, just what aperture if you remember. I'm trying to learn what sort of look equates with what sort of number, you know?
