The Tunisian of today, city dweller, rural farmer, inhabitant of the desert or the mountains is proud of his "Tunisian identity", a composite of various civilizational influences. Aware of their rich historical heritage, Tunisian people show a genuine interest and definite respect for others as evidenced in their moderation, tolerance and hospitality.
This tunisian man was a fantastic model showing his attachment to the land of ancestors and to the desert.
Hope you like him :-) Best regards!!!

Hi Patryk...I like this portrait..The pose of the man in the center gives the impression of isolation and the vastness of the desert.

Hello, Patryk -
A very good portrait, with minimal elements, great character in the face, good soft background, and good use of light. If I have any nit to pick, it's that I think you might have placed the horizon differently, so that it doesn't cut across his head. Maybe above, maybe across the neck or shoulders; I might experiment myself when I get the chance.
So in addition to sharing a strong photo, thanks for giving me some ideas!
