un ritratto straordinario dalla notevole espressività del soggetto e notevole per accuratezza nella tua ripresa.
Eccellenti sia la cura della messa a fuoco che la gestione della luce.
Ciao e buona settimana

Superb close-up portrait of this holy man. The expression in his eyes, the window to the soul, is beautifully captured. Superb technical quality.

Hello Subhendu - This Sadhu has a soft but 'all seeing' gaze which I find very interesting. You say his gaze pleases the soul, I find that his gaze uncovers the soul of those he looks at. Fabulous close crop with such wonderful textural detailing in his hair, beard and skin. Have a good week Rosemary

A superb portrait with perfect eye-contact and excellent light. You have cropped this very nicely and managed a very suitable dark background which makes the man's face jump towards us.

J'aime beaucoup lorsque le sujet d'un portrait regarde au dessus son épaule pour prendre la pose.J'aime beaucoup le regard franc de cet homme même si il semble fatigué.

Superb portrait of local man in perfect light! The dark background really causes you to focus on the face, which is well-lit. The grey hair color adds richness to the overall effect. Well done.

A superb close up shot of the Sadhu. I think this is the best shot so far of what I have seen of your portrait series. Fantastic timing to take a fine photo, beacuse I know these gaze and expressions do not stick with the face for eternity, be it a Sadhu or a common man. Khub bhalo chobi! Thanks for sharing.

the direct eye contact gives the this fine portrait lots of charm and real impact with the Sadhu nicely isolated against the dark BG.

Bonjour, cher Subhendu,
Encore une réussite à travers ce très beau portrait.
Les détails sont excellents.
Très bon cadrage.
ourania (51103) 2014-02-13 11:59
this is a great spontaneous portrait. I like very much the bold, tight framing that enhances the intensity of the Sadhu's gaze and the dynamism of his posture as he seems to have turned around to focus intently on you. Subject and viewer share the same curiosity and interest in each other. Strong personality and peaceful attitude make a very intriguing combination. Lighting and sharpness are superb. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

Namaste Subhendu. Really a very successful portrait. The gaze of the man is very interesting - but still difficult to interpret. The composition is excellent - and nothing superfluous disturb the overall impression.
Best rgds, Wolfgang.
