I was pleasantly surprised by the result. I thought that the lighting was bad as it was mostly flourescent predominantly coming from the top but I think the warm backligting helped. The classic Nikor 50mm from my wife's Nikon FE may have contributed to the wow factor. Despite using a crappy 8 mp Canon Rebel XT, the combination of the lens and the camera and providence all contributed to this shot.

cheers Claude B ... thanks for noticing and kind response.  I think he may have seen me but didn't really care.  The photo was cropped because I wanted to get rid of the two people he was talking to - the back of their heads didn't look photogenic (LOL).  Maybe he thought I was shooting someone or something else.

I like it "extremly" much.

Did he posed for you or you surprized him?

Cracking sharp image, good lighting, he looks a strange colour, like he works in a chocolate factory.

Try croping the left side to make it a portrait mode, remove some of the distracting b/g + high lights  behind his head then you would have a WOW image

Only a Little While Left!
