He was a caretaker o that place and ha really potraitable face. While learing how o potrait a person this one is one of the finest I got on that day.
    The following settings were usd while clicking this snap
    ISO 200
    F 3.5
    Exposure 1/1000

    this shot makes him look more like a leader than a pot maker, but i think youre right. he has a great face!

    i love the blue door behind his white hair, dark skin, and white clothing.

    i agree with spiffy it makes him look very important (whether he is or not is irrelevant) and all the colors look great. good job!

    I like this shot. I think it would look even better after cropping out the bricks on the left side. Have you tried a square crop?
