[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken during Chinese New Year in Pingdong...
This old man was in a park enjoying a bowl of juicy and fresh homemade pork noodles from a local street market.
Taiwan has this kind of nice scenarios where people of all ages can enjoy daily street life in a social healthy and safe environment.

I took several shots with different settings and focal lengths, and finally selected this one for TL, sunlight is in his mouth and composition is simple and balanced; there is more light than I desire in the background but I do not want to do any pp to correct that, and believe that the sharpness on the man is enough to isolate him from background.

88mm Focal Length and ISO-200
Thanks for viewing and for your critiques.

Hola Galder! I like the candid quality to this. Nice focus and DOF - and it does the trick as the subject is well isolated just using camera technique!


Is that funny looking beer or soy sauce in those bottles ;-)

Bom dia galder
You have always a good focus and a good capture of daily life people.
This is a " private" moment ( for me) and I like the good expresion of the man. You find a way to shine and make shine in your bphotos.

Hello Galder,
Your right,the background does not clash or interfere with your main subject.I like how you have captured him with the warm light. I believe he is fully concentrating on his meal & is not aware of you capturing him.I like the tight shot & the vibrance of it.
