While stuck in one of those lengthy traffic jams my cycle-rickshaw driver turned around to give me a good pose and great smile.
It's hard to explain the amazement and joy that people such as this man get from seeing their picture on the LCD screen of a digital camera. It's probably the only picture of themselves that they have ever seen.

A great portrait...the man looking on the lens, all the skin texture and beard details, the fantastic colors, the perfect framing with no distracting background, everything works in harmony together for this shot...

I like very much this portrait. The man gets a natural smile and the take is very natural... Focus is made on the subject, so nothing else can distract us from the main interest of this shot... It's a very nice picture.

A wonderful portrait. Great capture. I like it a lot.

Great shot. You have captured the moment, and the exposure has allowed just enough light in his eye to draw attention.
Wondering if you could crop in tight from the top (down to the first crease of his headband, and then to the edge of his shirt on the right... but thats personal preference.
