One month ago I was out of station for an office tour.. I was taking photographs of rural landscape.. There was a tea stall.. Some old persons were there.. When I was taking a cartís photo, this old man was gazing at me from the tea stall.. In a moment I adjusted my lens and took his portrait.. Hope you will like it..
Thanks for your visit..

Hello my friend!
brilliant portrait!Excellently timed and framed with the man having strong,expressive facial expression.
But what I like the most about it is the way you processed the image in monochrome and how perfectly you coped with shades to create so nice visual effect.
Have a nice sunday

darun portrait bhai! Great clarity. Nice sharpness. Like the use of shallow DOF. Nicely presented in suitable black and white format. Excellent work. Tfs.

A very fine portrait, and again your eye for black and white conversion has worked perfectly. Considering this is a candid shot, its a hugely impressive portrait, I can not imagine this being better even if the man was happily posing for your camera. Really nicely done.

I'm not a portrait expert but if the shot were mine I might crop a slight bit off the top right side as I think bright spec attracts my eye away from the main part of the image. I feel that the face is a little under exposed and may have benefited from a little fill in flash du to to shadows, also you need to lighten up his eyes -the most vital element in portraiture- a little to give life.
Bring your self down to his eye level straight-on to gives more impact and this would also eleminate some clutters in the bg. Hopefully my my sincere critique is acceptable to you. Congrats

Very authentic shot from rural Wb dear Indrashish,
The b&w version is well adaptated to his white hair, I like the presentation, clear shot
