This is Leroy. He told me he was trying to get off the streets. I gave him some money and I asked to take his photo. He seemed to not mind and we wished each other a good day. I know this is not a perfect focus image, but with street shots and manual focus lens, I am still learning how to get it right the first time around. I'll get there.

This was my top pick - a wonderful portrait in every way: subject, framing, detail, tones. Congratulations on the HM.
eta Do you know I never noticed the softness of the nose until this very minute when I read YOUR apology about focus and went back to see what you meant. That's now strongly the personality and processing carried this for me.

Seems like the part that is supposed to be tack sharp IS! It's beautiful! Congratulations on 4th place.

Great light that helped showing the wrinkles. Love the light in the eyes. Amazing model. Wish the nose was sharper. But overall I love this portrait!

I love the detail here. This man looks like he has seen enough to just have fun with what comes his way, and that he'd have a plethora of fascinating stories from his life.
10 and a fave from me

Excellent street portrait. The wrinkles in his eyes line up with his hair, folds in his clothes and zipper. Nice bit of bokeh in the top left too.

Im pretty sure this isn't Jagar but you have captured his style in close portraiture rather well and I like the 'Librodo' eyes .. well done
