Je voulais vous présenter un de ces jeunes bergers nomades qui, à plus de 4000m aux confins du Ladakh et à proximité de la frontière tibétaine, gardent ces petites chèvres blanches dont les poils du cou, extrêmement soyeux, seront utilisés pour confectionner les écharpes en Pashmina, qui garderont au chaud votre cou pendant les frimas de nos hivers
* Pendant sa participation au festival annuel du Ladakh à Leh
I wanted to introduce you to one of these young nomad shepherds who, at more than 4000m at the confines of Ladakh close to the tibetan border, watch these little white goats, the throat hairs of which are used to manufacture the Pashmina scarfs, that will shelter your throats from the cold of our occidental winters
*During his participation to the annual Ladakh festival in Leh

Hello Patrick - This young boy has the most delicate and beautiful features and a skin tone which gives testament to the outdoor, high altitude life he leads. Both his hat and rosette are unusual details and seem quite incongruous accessories to his more traditional woven jacket. Has the young man attended a competition and is his hat festive wear? I'm fascinated with the story behind this lovely portrait. Have an excellent weekend Rosemary

A picture with a excellent composition and
light management. Also great are the gentle
contrast and the DOF.

A very attractive portrait. I like the festive clothes and the colors. Good work, have a fine Sunday.

Hi Patrick. Portraits are the premier class in photography. Earlier this photographic discipline everything was arranged and contrived - but nowadays naturalness and authenticity is required. The face of the young goat herders shows personality and self-awareness. I like the photo very much.

He's got amazingly old eyes for someone so young, Patrick, and his gaze off to the left adds to that sense of age and wisdom, I think. The contrast between his worn clothes and the bright, glittering ribbon is effective as well. A really touching portrait here.

You have brought all the elements so expertly together of the proud looking young shepherd with the glancing look which looks so magnetic.I think there is as much charm in this picture, really sharp and It has a very natural feel about it which you have portrayed well. Great portrait, TFS

un eccellente ritratto che conferma la tua bravura in questo campo, oltre che come paesaggista.
Ottimi dettagli ed in particolare bellissimo il soggetto che rende molto bene l'idea della fusione tra antico e moderno.
PS: complimenti per la bella posizione della tua foto nel concorso!. Ancora un piccolo sforzo e ti avvicini ai 100 punti.
Ciao e buona serata

Good example of your portrait gallery from India. This goat boy looks like a small copy of American cowboy with the sheriff star ;)
Impressive face, excellent quality. Well done.
