Like it a lot. Good lighting, great composition. You've told a good story and captured him in a sort of posed but natural-looking state. I'd like a little more sharp focus on him. He feels a little soft.
Thanks, Fred. This is one of those shots where I realized that i wasn't gonna be able to surreptitiously take the photo i wanted, so although I don't speak Norwegian (and wasn't sure if he spoke English) I held up the camera and raised my eyebrows in the international gesture of "Do you mind if i take your picture?". When he shrugged and nodded i snapped the photo, but didn't want to piss him off by taking a bunch, and so what I got was what you see. I am learning to like the Asked-For Street more than the totally candid Street that got me hooked in the first place.
Workman, Norway thanks for any ratings or comments.
