@Laurent: Ni lui, ni sa voiture. Quant au plan serré, c'est vraiment pas évident de réussir quelque chose de correct.

Il regarde des filles, mais pas le photographe ?

@m. benaut: I don't know what he's looking at… Neither the road, nor the photograph… So, maybe you're right : he has seen some pretty girls… Thank you for your comment.

I like the perspective of this shot, it feels raw and very much like off-the-street reality. Perhaps the f/stop could have been a little higher to give a bit more contrast and softer darker tones.
