    The pic is pretty neat, but the fact that it's pushing the bounderies of composition is fan-freakin-tastic.

    Great pic, he looks like he is either gonna smile at you, or bite the lense off your camera. Did he know you were going to photogragh him, or was is covert :)

    He is (way) off center, but that adds to the ambience of the shot.

    He was oblivious as far as I can tell. There's four more pics of him if you like, follow this post below. I was only 7 or so feet from him so unless his glasses needed updating, I'm fairly sure he knew I was taking the pics!

    You've gotta love how old folks have so much character from their lines (read wrinkles).

    My 2ยข is just to resize pics when you post them so that one can see the entire picture without having to scroll over/down.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    Brutal? Ok, it breaks all the rules. Now thats out of the way.

    This is one of the few. You shoot ROLLS and ROLLS to get one like this. A fleeting expression that is open to interpretation along with the vague attention grabbing background make for a strongly competitive image. The beautiful man and the portent situation conflict for attention but somehow it really really works.

    Brad,

    Actually no, this was shot using a canon 10d (digital) which has an effective image field of 22.7x15.1, making it smaller than your standard 35mm formats. Annoying as I automatically get a 1.6x magnification due to the image field and CMOS censor, which makes any wide angle shots VERY expensive to consider.

    cheers for the groovy comments,
    christopher
