color and contrast in photography

More contrasting colors in your pictures (green shirt against red brick, pops a bit). It just makes it appealing to the eye. Love it. And he is not completely centered in the image but rather leaning toward the right third of the picture. Which again, would lend itself to the rule of thirds. Check that composition tip out here.

Here are my manual settings for this shot:
ISO –250 (bright sunny day but in full shade)
shutter speed – 1/800
aperture – 2.8
lens – 50mm 1.2L
