Various: Following Dales's suggestion, I replaced the background and I also made another version, B&W - Duotone. However, looking back at the original, before any doctoring of the background, I find it now much more interesting. I think if conveys the surroundings, the flea market, it hints to where he found the letters... The versions without background may be better portraits, but I think they lost the message.

I agree I like the flee market in the background, not saying this sort of make over is a bad idea at all though. You could try masking the man out and then using the lens blur tool to blure the backgroud a little. Thus making the man stand out more and keeping the feel of the market in the image.

You are probably right Ben, I'll try it.

Thanks, Moshe
