Hi Folks.
Happy New Year to all.

Portraits are not really my thing but I captured this moment semi candidly, he knew I was taking shots but he was talking to a friend at the time, cropped to remove 2nd person and processed with my limited knowledge of right vs wrong! :)
I’d appreciate constructive criticism of the processing please, the pose etc were outside my control and the crop is as big as I could make it, his friends hand on a post dictated the right hand edge (had to leave a bit of the hand to make some space) and it was only during processing that it occurred to make it a portrait shot rather than just the family style documentary shot it started as.
Should I have taken some headroom to get the whole of the hands in?
Should I have used an unconstrained aspect ratio to retain the hands and headroom?
Taken at the Goodwood Revival, natural light, no opportunity for big setup and I wasn’t carrying a flash.
