    I love this image. B&W is the way to go with these.

    Great shot. Reminds me the cover of a recent issue of Black+White Photography:

    Re: Old man

    Thank you for the flattering comments.

    Now, I ask you: do you see the image too dark in general terms ?
    I see it just fine, but how do you ?



    Indeed Steve my image is as good as the one posted in that magazine.
    It looks like the image belongs to "Ian Berry's lifetime in pictures" but he is Magnum's And me ?

    And another consideration about this image:
    I wanted to make it vertical. But it would be cropping too much and we wouldn't be able to see his cut ear what would be a big loss to the perception of the Human scale of the image.

    SCP ? Oh that is history

    Antonio, I agree the crop would lose too much. Also I could see just as easily your photo on the cover there. Well done.

    Actually, it's a reader's picture (Simon Morris) "taken in Rajasthan, India, in a small old town called Bundi". He also says that he used Fuji S5 Pro, Nikon 28-50mm and converted to mono with Silver Efex Pro. Anyway, yours is equally powerful.

    I'm not experienced enough to give really useful feed back, just my personal view:
    Drama Queen that I am, No, I don't think it's too dark.
    I wish I was able to take photos like this one.

    Not a big deal. Just try in CS5 and you will get there

    Re: Old man

    PhotoShop can only do so much - But you still need a good original to work with.
    I'm not quite there yet, but I'm trying.
    I'm still not comfortable photographing people.

    A brilliant Portrait, Antonio.
    Yes it does look a li'l dark on my screen too, but I am sure that its my screen that is ditching the exposure.
