Values, values and more values

This piece is called "Night Visitor". Its part of the "Combined Series". I'm still pondering it. I may leave it alone but I will let it marinate a bit.
This is a guy that I photographed at the Old Pecan Street Festival. He was selling products related to the consumption of tobacco products. I liked his energy. In the final piece I focused on getting the eyes to pop more.

Bus stop on 6th street. I'm still struggling with this piece. The shadows don't seem consistent.
