lamas generally are a picture of peace and tranquility.but this lama's face struck me because it seems at first glance just the opposite of it.clicked in the lava monastery while the lamas were hanging out in the sun,in the chilly himalayan weather.

Love the way the robe frames the guys face and flows giving texture to the shot and the contrast between the red and blue really makes the shot stand out. One of your best.

a nice portrait here. Dwaipayan, you captured it with nice light on his face. Like the red light reflected on his face. Red of his dress is really dominant and have a power to made the look impressive. You did well in focusing. Like also the tight composition. Very well done. Tfs.

a striking study this. The duo colours so effective at making the covered face of this lama so compelling and full of character. It is a powerful image made all the more so by the way the lama's eyes are studying something out of shot. Stunning work! I love it!

Dwaipayan, the portrait of lama which you presented here is outstanding. The light on his face and on the red fabric are excellent. His eyes make me curious what was he looking at. Very well done!

C'est portrait magnifique, le contraste des couleurs sont merveilleuses, le jeu ombre et de lumière, l'expression a la fois sereine et attentif...

nice the portrait of the Lama man with his red cloth to contrast perfect with the blue of the sky.I like his pose as his penetrating glance.

Great portrait with strong contrasting colors, great use of light and shadow and a very intriguing ace framed by the robes. Nice one.

The brilliant color of the lama's cloak, stands so starkly against the cloudless sky. But as you point out, it is the expression on the man's face that is eye catching. The light management is very good in the shot, giving you an excellent portrait.

red and blue, perfect combination to make a strong visual impact.
the tight cropping and composition make it work well too.
and interesting gaze as you mentioned, perhaps he's just cold :)
excellent photo my friend

This portrait is really excellent.
I like the contrast between the red cloak and the blue sky. It's a kind of minimal composition.
Warm regards, Les

The vibrant deep red cloth around his neck set the tone are real focal point. The red set against the dark Blue sky is a winner. Excellent photo job

I like it. It is very different then those we typically see here. Sometimes I can even feel their annoyance, because many tourist try to click their picture all the times. I try to be discrete, sometimes I as for permission. Sometime I took from far away as part of the landscape. It is easier to click with children.
Love the strong color and close up approach of the monk. Thanks and Namaste.

He does look intense and not the calm radiance we are used to. However, at very nice tight portrait with vibrant colors.

striking colours and very strange, kind of suspicious look attract the attention. Well done
