About the Image(s)

This gentleman was in a wheelchair in an indoor market. The lighting was relatively dim, so I shot at 1/125 sec; f/2.8 and ISO 1600. I used my 70-200 zoom at 102mm. I was taking lots of pictures of the market customers and the man eating pizza asked me to take his as well. Needless to say, I was delighted to oblige.

A marvellous capture Oliver. I see such sorrow in the gentleman's eyes and the fact that he has lost a limb makes the image even more poignant. You did an excellent job of lightening the image without losing any of the drama. A very minute change-- darken the two yellowy spots to the left of his eye. Only one thing to say--I wish I had taken it!   Posted: 02/04/2018 13:40:54

This is a lovely image, Oliver. You done a great job on the lighting which is now excellent. I really like it and I think that it would do well in international exhibitions.   Posted: 02/17/2018 01:13:28

This is a very nice shot Oliver; You really captured some nice lighting on his face; The only thing that I might have done is blurred out some of the background.   Posted: 02/18/2018 11:53:47
