Super. I also like the crop, although I can imagine it bothering some voters. Great colouring and detail.

Nice composition, but it looks over-processed.

Nice shot but I'm put off a little bit by the processing. I wonder why you chose b/w for this. To me, this shot screams for the color to be put back. It' is also a little grainy. Interesting bokeh though.

Quite an interesting gentleman. From the tie to his guitar, I want to know his story. Nice dof also.

Interesting processing. Does his skin really look like that?

What wonderful post processing! I would love to know about how you got all the dynamic highlights on his chest and the guitar and hands. Depth of field is AMAZING i have to get myself a new lense

Lovely image of a grizzled old guitarist. Have you done a very gentle desat on the packet of victory? it provides a lovely counterpoint to the rest of the frame
