Back Porch Decision

Taken at a Blue Grass festival, this gentleman was waiting at the edge of the stage. Took this with the canon 200 f/2.8 prime lens.

    Thank you Robert :) Yes, I shoot from the hip (or the heart) rarely from the head and my motivation is one of creative expression and hopefully an image that evokes a connection with the viewer .. I thought this man had an amazing face and I wanted to capture it and share it with others who may also 'see' the reason that I took the picture share that vision. I think most artist/photographers , such as yourself, will intuitively understand this.
    Thanks again for taking the time to comment.

    I would ask Paul to tell us where the 'flaws' are!

    It is amazing how many times some people get it wrong!! Why not just look at the pic, but do not disect it like a biology lesson.

    Photography is not an a exact science! The rules need to be broken, and the best shots are usually, to most of us, when the rules are not there.

    Perhaps there is a tinge of jealousy here.
