Looks like an interesting place. I like the puncture holes in the sign and wonder how those are made. I remember someone telling me they used to like shooting signs with a paintball gun with marbles in (I do not know if that's even possible but this fella would fit right in there). I like this image but I'm in two minds as to whether I'd prefer it without the figure in the background or not. I know it provides context and helps open up the rest of the story - perhaps he does not look menacing enough in comparison to the sign. Anyway, great find for a subject, very interesting and provoking image. I feel the momentum building :)
Interesting perspective. An eye-catching sign. An isolating fence. And it's easy to assume that the guy is capable of some wrongdoing. Or perhaps not.
Very unusual composition: but it works fine! Love the defocused portrait. Roberto
