I don't usually do street portraits but there was just something about this guy.  His name is Jay and the photo was taken in Soho, London

I like the contrast between an ordinary man (featured in color) and the celebrity in the background (featured in black and white).

Nice one! Indeed, the man looks quite like a character and you did a great job at capturing his spirit. On a more technical note, his face looks more emphasized and lit up against all the gray hues in the rest of the picture.

Thanks very much Jay :-) Much appreciated. I found him quite Tolienesque (if that is a word?) lol but a really nice dude when we chatted afterwards

I love "outliers" on the scale of humanity........especially the ones that are positive forces in the universe, as it appears he is! Great shot!
