Background is a bit distracting, but he's got a lot of character. Nice shot

Great portrait

The background is not that distracting to me, since it's colours appear in his face as well !

Very nice, I like the BG, too. I think it fits his character, nicely.

I personally like it as is, but have you tried a B&W conversion? I would also lower the luminosity on his "hat" in PS, as my eyes are drawn there due to be so in focus.
Best,

Matias

PS: -- i wish his right eye would be in focus (to be honest, I kind of hate this type of feedback b/c at this point it's too late, so it does not help you that much other than maybe encouraging you not to shoot wide open all the time)

I like everything about this one. I think in this instance color is the right choice.

The well weathered skin tone would be lost in black and white.

Think the background and processing go well together.
Visited Turkey in 2000. Beautiful country.

The EXIF file shows it was at 50.1m. That must be a mistake. Maybe it was .5m?
