Taking advantage of the rule allowance to throw in a shot more than a decade old, that's been surprisingly relevant recently.

Yep, that's a somewhat younger Boris Johnson, in Edinburgh Airport. Not much more to say about this one.

Slight straightening, curves, resize, sharpen.

Hello from the critique club

An interesting image that meets the challenge very well.

A great action portrait, great focus and DOF from this wide open fast lens, great composition and no mistaking the fact that he is returning through a customs control somewhere over here. I like it that he is not looking at the camera but the only minor problem is the direction of his gaze, he takes you out of the frame but being the enigmatic persona that he is he engages you more than an anonymous character would have done. In terms of the challenge brief, I didnít realise that DPC was the driving force behind the result, thanks for enlightening me Eugene.

Was he asked to come to us and help? Hell, no, send him back, preferably to Europe
