"Million of kilometers in a single life
can be covered without never touching
the surface of the places
neither to learn nothing
from people we met on the way.
The sense of travelling
is to stop and listening
anyone has a story to tell."
I love the sight of this man, belonging to the Jatt tribespeople; he is so relaxed and confident, the right attitude that everyone of us have to wear whenever we start something new.
I wish to all TE members this attitude for the new year!

Yes Luca, feeling very at ease and friendly, obviously
The look of a man you feel like trusting and from whom you might buy a camel without much hesitation

Very nice portrait. Superb frame.
Liked the way colour and natural light is handled.

What a great portrait. It's a fantastic capture in and by itself and you've framed it perfectly.

Your composition is once more excellent. The bokeh is good and the portrait is beautiful and very sharp. I like the movement of his neck, the clarity of his eyes, and the colors of his turban and chale. That's very well done. But to me, it seems more like the last look on 2008, before he will turn the head to look at 2009 in the other direction. A last look like a silent blessing, for the joys that 2008 have carried, with forgiveness for mistakes, delays and things that have failed... and full of hope for the future.
Thanks for your wishes. I'll try to follow the line!

good warm and not too harsh light, the bokeh is fine, and the expression is, indeed, relaxed & confident, nice one

Nice a very colourful, but natural, portrait also a nice light and shadow you have captured here. It seems like he's looking forward, looking towards 2009 perhaps ;-). Best wishes!

Yes Luca, so confident in his pose and expression. And with you so confident behind your lens it has to be a winner. Beautiful natural colours with a lovely bokeh.
I was given a book for Xmas Pure India by Henk Bothof and Martin Bakker, do you know it - you would like it very much.
