Re: I say...

interesting character but I'm not sure this is up to your usual standard.
As the eyes are shaded they don't draw my attention, instead my eyes wander to the bright hat and the red post box.
What is it like in mono?

Re: I say...

I agree, the post box is just too obtrusive. Selective adjustment with enhancement to the dynamic range of the character plus some desaturation of the post box and gaussian blur to the background generally.

Re: I say...

I would try going mono - the bricks on the left seem too 'new' whereas everything else could almost pass off as being from yesteryear.

Re: I say...

Having seen the edit (albeit not requested), I like the picture as is, not too concerned about the eyes being in the shade as the expression is all in the mouth.

Re: I say...

I like it - it is appealing, and a very interesting subject too - I don't think it's up to your usual enviable standard but it's not a major deal. I think for me the white of the shoulder is slightly more distracting than the post box!
