    God, I LOVE it.

    Street photography is really hard, but you made it look like a studio shot.

    Love it. The way you've isolated the subject from the background is fantastic and the contrasts in the B&W are spot on.

    I imagine the cowboy has a few tales tot tell. With such a weathered look, how could he not?

    Nice work. You did a great job of capturing all that gritty detail. Great sharpness, too.

    You see, I knew you have right another one that would impress me again! :lol:

    I totally love the sharpness and the contrast.

    Some questions about the shot:
    1.) Are you that tall? or is he kneeling? 'cause he looks up to you...
    2.) How did you ask him for the shot?
    3.) settings? 1/125, f/10 (WOW, how did you get this DOF???)

    thanks for sharing!

    hehe whats DOF ? ,
    im not that tall Im 1.76m and sometimes i dont ask people for taking pictures of them , only after i take it i let them know ,
    since if you ask someone to picture him first you detract him from his real personality and his getin ready for you to take pictures , i rather picture him on his real actions first then ask :)
