I really love this shot - the man's lively pose is immediately attractive, but what I like most of all here are the composition and the colours. The colours in the wall to the right behind the man echo the colours in his jacket and his skin so well, and the straight lines in the painted metal wall to the left provide a nice counterbalance. The orange bowls provide a good anchor for the eye, and the whole is a really tasty portrait. This is going to sound really picky, but part of me wants an edge to the left - to see the corner of his tray and perhaps the iron leg of the framework supporting his trays of fish. Nonetheless - I would be pleased with this myself.

'Real' life vibrant image as usual. A tad underexposed, though.
