Quietly content.

Notice the beautiful window light, and the mirroring of his profile by the globe.

When you click to view the larger image, please also note how sharp his eye (the point of focus) appears, even wide open @ f/1.4.  Everything else fades softly out of focus.

Those two qualities — biting sharpness and delicate out-of-focus rendering — are both courtesy of the Leica 75mm Summilux lens.

    Hi, I found your site a week or so ago and it’s my morning reading/viewing now as I chew my cornflakes. Another lovely image today, I really like the little commentaries you provide about composition etc, very useful as I try to get better with my own shots. Cheers.
