Old Man - Old Job - Clock
Lens: Pentax-DA* 16-50mm f/2.8 Camera: K-3 Photo Location: Kütahya/TURKEY ISO: 640 Shutter Speed: 1/250s Aperture: F2.8 

Here's my latest 2 shots:

Both of the photos taken with K-3 and Da* 16-50mm f/2.8 at 1/250 sec. f/2.8
The first photo was taken at 50mm ISO 640,
The second photo was taken at 16mm ISO 3200.

I probably should've used a slower shutter speed to decrease the ISO a little bit more, since 1/250 more than enough to freeze the moment. It could be a lot better if I took them at 1/125 with half ISO. But still, a little grain works well with black and white.

Let me know what you think. Any critique and advice is much appreciated.

I like #2 best without the oof foreground elements and you can really see what he is doing. I find no negative issues with your ISO. Well done.

Interestingly I find the first pic to be more noisy than the second one, wich I too do prefer. Well done!

I much prefer #2. Was #1 shot through window glass while #2 was not?

#1 has a distracting reflection on his chin and downwards to the bottom of the frame. Were you wearing a scarf or tie that caused that? It would take heroic postprocessing to fix. Maybe you could have gotten closer to the glass for less reflection or tried a polarizing filter.

The blurred vertical foreground lines in #1 are distractions. A square crop might remedy that; get rid of everything on the right side of the rightmost vertical line, framing the man between the 2 verticals.

I like them both but prefer number 2. In both cases you have taken great candid shots of the job, the fact they are in black and white brings out the textures of the face and the surroundings. Good job
