Street shot, China.

I think i would have preferred the old mans face looking more towards the camera, but unfortunately the opportunity didn't arise. Any C&C welcome. Cheers.

I agree the face looking at the camera or more of a side view, but I like the shadows and the sleeping baby in the photo, thanks for sharing.

That is an excellent street image. I really like it.

I actually like the fact the grandfather's face is turned away.

Thanks for sharing.

This is surely having a very great touch to the image. Very raw and original.

I especially think that what isn't in the photo is what makes it interesting. His gaze and posture point to something outside the frame, and the playful light and dark areas give whatever it might be just beyond the edge an aura of mystery. But then contrast that with the child who is blissfully unaware. Great photo!

Where in China? I recall being hungover in Guangzhou & Beijing a couple times, but the weather in January was excellent. A long walk (and some roasted yams) made the lingering effects from the night before a distant memory, try it

I like the contrasted light and colours! Looks very genuine, maybe more so as the man does not look at you!
