Too many favourites TBH. But when I looked through the pictures, I moved back to #11 and also liked #12 and #13. These people look completely at ease with you taking the picture without posing.

Thanks for sharing, interesting series!

Many pics, indeed, and many good ones!
I really enjoyed the portrait selections. Some of these people are caught raw - no pretense or mannerisms. Just who they are, just the way that they are.
A very nice collection.

It's a bit strange to see less than 70 people were interested enough to follow the link.
Anyhow: Thanks for your replies, addy landzaat and skm.sa100.

Patience is a virtue , the post is only up for less than 7 hours. Btw also when waiting for these 43 pictures to load. They're all pretty big and more than 2 MB and I don't know where the delay came from but it took several minutes before they were all there on my screen.

But they're very good photos (so worth the wait) and the main attraction is the connection most of these have with the viewer, very open without being artificially posed. I especially liked the ones where you framed the faces with the environment or scarfs/hats/caps. It's really hard to pick a favourite but 22 and 43 have something special for me and 14 made me laugh.

Great series - too difficult to choose favourites.

The genuine smiles in so many are beautiful. Is it a cultural attribute that so many of these folks look completely comfortable in front of your camera or do you tend to only keep and show images of smiles? A fascinating set - so many details to look at after the faces.

Edit: I now have looked at these several times and it is #37 that I am most drawn to - perhaps it is the contrast with most of the others in that the subjects are not smiling, adds a bit to the mystery, the suspense and even more importantly, that third figure lingering in the back, out of focus - adds to the drama in the scene.

Beautiful portraits of some wonderful characters, all of them engaged and at ease with the photographer - a tribute to your people skills, as well as your photographic abilities.
Interesting backgrounds, too.
Impossible to pick favourites because they are all so good, but the ones that appeal most to me are perhaps the ones you got closer to and fill the frame, although more distant images give us more of the colourful setting they are in.
Thanks for sharing.

For me the best picture in this set is the only one we're the subject is not looking at the camera coincidentally and that's number 9. Love that you have him working in his natural environment with very dirty hands. All seems very natural and fluid. I also like that he's wearing an adidas beanie which seems a little hip for a guy his age especially in comparison to his more natural clothing for the area. I am going to comment on a few more. 13 for me should be removed from the set as their is an obvious focus miss on the subjects face. And in general I don't think 39 is a strong picture. To much going on and the subject seems lost in the environment. Do not take these as criticisms as the set is exceptionally strong and truthfully I wish they were mine as you have done a magnificent job. Tfs.

For me, content beats technical perfection. I really, really like the look of the subject. And there you have it, people differ - to me, this fits perfectly in this series.

I can concur with most of the comments above (including pegelli's one about patience ). Hard to pick a favourite, but some will not make it because of some (minor) imperfections e.g. #26, where the point of view could be a bit lower and the cut off persons at the right ar a bit disturbing to me.
But this is really nit picking on a strong set overall.

Very nice series. You have got a good contact to these people, and technically these are images are very good for me, though there my be some small criticism. My favorite?? In which respect? Some are pure portraits, some show the job of the person. Some images are more ironical, one or two are a bit sad. #14 imho should be seen in a contrast to the other ones. #31 is a different generation than the other ones. So I am glad with the series - Thanks!
