The East is here - The Looker #1

What is he looking at? Take a wild guess. And no, it's not the obvious (i.e. Nelson's Column).

This is the first shot in the series I am choosing to title, "The East is here". More to come tomorrow...

That is a great shot. Love the selected DoF.

I agree with Michael. I love the DOF and the blurred background
Creative angle.

I think i'd like less blur on the background here. Reversal from the typical, focused subject, blurred onlooker.
Nice Idea, works for me.
A typically lovely awesome Alakija work grin
a bit dark for me but I like the comp.
looks like he's looking at some painting or poster of the nativity scene or something
lovely dof
i'm sure u intentionally let the pole grow out of his head
Very creative Jide smile

anyone else notice how his right earlobe is much larger than the left?! for some reason that grabbed my attention first.
i think his head's just a lil tilted

This is nice!

And from my trip not too long ago to trafalgar square, I remember staring hard particularly at this object as well and thinking to myself that it looked like a gigantic chess board piece (maybe queen!!)
