Would you buy food from this man?

Last weekend we went to the Blenheim Palace food festival. There wasn't much going on food-wise that could be photographed, but there were some interesting characters.

This chap was working on a stand selling barbecued food, and was busy talking to some customers. I liked the expression in his eyes and the way the food hid the rest of his face to make him just a little menacing than circumstances might have suggested.

Shot with a Nikon D610, Samyang 85mm f1.4 lens at f2. This is a manual focus lens, and required care to get the eyes sharp while throwing everything else out of focus.

However the food in this first image is a little distracting, and if the peppers had been dark then the image would have been more striking. So in order to really draw attention to the subject I converted the image to monochrome using Nik Silver Efex software.
