About once a year we go to the racetrack and watch the horses run and do some people watching. This guy with the fat stogie was a character and a nice guy with plenty of advice on betting the ponies.

Like how you have isolated him with the 1.8, gives it so much more impact.

Man, he looks the part! Selective focus is great, Mark. Love that hint of the side railing in the background as well as the blur on the guy next to him. It's all about him and his cigar :)
