This is an outstanding image with wonderful portrait, excellent use of black-and-white and leading lines into the natural background not really Street photography but Veldt photography. Really well done.

I really like this portrait, Jaapv. As David noted, the leading line from the bar is really nice and I love the clouds in the background. Since there isn’t any fauna showing, I’m moving it to Non-nature.

Beautiful print. Another crop option…all subjective.
So…did the the man make a sun visor from a animal tail?
Ty for post

That is not a sun visor. It is an Induna headband, signifying high military rank and often royal descent.
AFAIK Busa is a descendant of King Shaka who dealt the British their worst military defeat of the 19th Century at Islwanda.
As for your crop I think it is OK, but I like the impression of space that matches his gaze. And the close crop destroys the lines.

Really fine portrait in context. The image tells a great story and looks great too. I like this one!
