A smile as pure and innocent as that of a child,
A smile of renunciation,
A smile of mental peace and satisfaction of helping others,
A smile of selflessness,
A smile of reaching above the mundane desires.
A sadhu in the temporary tent set up at Kolkata for Gangasagar fair.

Hello Avishek, I believe we use many more muscles smiling than frowning, it's good this gentleman perform this sometimes difficult task so well ;-). Interesting make up, lovely portrait, I would have like to have seen more of his face but realise this is not always possible. Well done

ottimo portrait particolarmente espressivo.
Ottimo il taglio verticale e bella la cornice scura che accentua i contrasti.
Buona la resa cromatica.

Namaskar Avishek, this portrait is extraordinary both in terms of your subject but also the quality of the shot. Excellent colours, definition and use of the depth of field. And I love the expression on the Saddhu's face. Great work, thanks for sharing and have a good day, Lisa

Good portrait with much detail on this sadhu such as the skin color, neckless, beard etc. and his gesture is interesting. framing is good, good close-and tight framing but there is still some space ahead though minimal. Slight shapness and contrast will do a great justice to him. Overall its an excellent capture my friend. Congrats.
