I was roaming with my camera in Bagbazar Ghat Area at afternoon.. There was many boat anchored in the ghat.. There was no passenger or no boatman.. After some time i saw a boatman was sitting on the boat.. I thought it will be a good portarit if I click it .. I adjusted my lens and click.. Result is in front of your eyes.. You can see the boatman.. May be he was thinking about his unsucessful day.. Don't know you like it or not..

Hello Indrasish - I like the faraway expression on the boatman's face and you have captured it well with good detail on his skin. One slight concern I have here is the strong green of the pole; it is a beautiful colour but to my mind it pulls attention away from the portrait. If it was cropped out the man's face would come across more powerfully. As it stands now my eyes move back and forth between the face and the pole. If the face is your main subject then that should be the main area of focus. Warm regards Rosemary

This is a fine portrait with very good light and perfect sharpness. You have cropped the picture very nicely to include the bright green thing. Maybe the man is worried, but at least he doesn't seem aware of your camera.

hi dear, a nice portrait shot here. His eyes certainly tell a story. He is feeling worried for some reason, probably poverty. Excellent presentation and nice colour tone. Superb shot. Tfs.

It would appear this man has not had an easy day, his expression is one of deep concern and worry. That contrasts strongly with the vivid green on the left of the shot. Nicely composed to get these elements together like this, and the green compliments the portrait totally.
Have a great week

A fine portrait in superb clarity, Indrasish.
Face expression show a bit of distressed look, yet, we probably never know what about.
Excelent taken the photo. Green added fine additional color.
