Nice monochrome composition. Expresions have been beautifully taken in this frame along with good light and contrast. Granular effect is well representing a luster impact. Well done Hans.

Thanks for sharing a nice image.

a good journalistic portrait, a storytelling image, very well done, thanx, M, (*_*)

What is this man looking at, I wonder. Why does he avoid your gaze, the camera's inquisition, the viewer's curiousity? Look at his wife. Admire her directness, her open reception of this act of portraying her. She appraises you with mild apprehension, perhaps with a touch of suspicion, but frankly, with courage. But this man, he looks away, off into the distance, at something unseen, invisible, perhaps unreal. He looks angry. Where does that anger come from? What annoys him so? Why does he sit so far from his wife and look away from her? What does he fear? -Hugh

Hello Hans,
this is a good strong image that we can try and read stories into. Actually, at first i thought the man looked irish and was surprised to find otherwise.

Just a mother and father.....kid went far away already...A grandchild could make them more happy...It is time for them to love their grandchild....

The guy is pure Delboy Trotter!

Great capture of humanity, Janek.

I think I will write the same thing as gabbypal
Great capture of humanity.
I love this sot of those people. It's a simple, clear, nice and sincere picture.

This is a very beautiful portrait, Janek. I like everything about it.
