You will say a strange portrait....but he also deserves to be photographed. Here you will not see beautiful eyes...here he feel only darkness...but he has an inner light ... light of soul. He is a Sadhu and lives in Varanasi..very very polite and outstanding personlity!

Very interesting and deep face, without eyes...
Best wishes. Grazyna.

This is a great portrait Vivek. Nice tones, sharpness, detail etc, but i'm wondering if it might have been better to have gone for a more vertical frame and included some of his clothes.

Now Dragon Vivek, this kind of work is simply out of the world. That peaceful expression on the man's face, those lines, and ebard and to top it all some superb photography have made this a daringly different portrait. I love the way you control your lights. Great composition.

Really amazing portrait of very impressive face but provoking to make some WS. Regards.

yes, Vivek a gentle face as this deserves to be portrayed. It is a shame that he will not be able to see the justice that you have doen for him. A tender and touching portrait,

I can’t help but tell you how much you have improve over the few months you’re on Trekearth! It’s probably true to everyone of us on this site, but I see you trying different things, pushing forward all the time, and the results are there my friend.
This is such a great and touching portrait Vivek! The man possess great facial features that transcend peace and you were able to seize it. Good choice of B&W, tight close-up and dark background, somehow echoing his universe.
Nice to see your work again! (I was away for two months...).

The lighting here is very special, allowing you to present the man's beard as highlighted. He appears gentle and wise, his face a beacon against darkness despite his blindness. Well captured, Vivek. Its a keeper.

Superbe portrait, car meme sans regard son visage est très expressif. La réalisation est d'une grande qualité, une très belle photo!!

You caught a nice attitude, and I like your tight framing of this portrait.
Your BW work is amazing.

Man Vivek, your talent is just exploding right now...such an incredible vision (absolutely no pun intended). I can't begin to describe what goes through my mind when looking into this shot. A stunning portrait more unique than most I've ever seen. Even with his lids hanging low, it is obvious how the beauty of your photo presents his soul with such clarity. A superb photo for B&W...all we have is the glowing intensity of this mans being.
Wonderful a million times over.
kdialyna (3148) 2007-03-14 15:49
Good evening Vivek.
I think he has such a strong Aura that he does not need his eyes to fill the photo with his soul light.
My friend you are really a portrait expert.
What can I say.
ALIRIZA (16423) 2007-03-14 15:59
This is a great portrait with nice tones, sharpness and detail. Well done...
vincz (19113) 2007-03-15 3:51
Strong shot Vivek, very expressive, a deep silence. Very well done, great choice of balck and white here.
nirajsinha (857) 2007-03-15 8:01
I can see deep spiritualism and divinity in your pictures. A real great portrait. NO exact word is there in my lexicon to praise your work.
snowfalken (1116) 2007-03-15 16:34
You keep fascinating me with your absolutely superb portraits! The kindness of this person is so obvious that even without the colors there is no way not to notice it! I can almost feel his inner light!
Technically and artistically, I find this picture flawless! An excellent post of a very good quality! Definitely a favorite! Thank you!
With Friendly Regards,

merhaba dear vivek

thea0211 (1365) 2007-03-21 11:33
maybe we don't get the chance to see his (i'm sure) beautiful eyes, but we do get the chance to see his beautiful look ... it's like his eyes are closed because he sees something with his mind's eyes - something so very unique and beautiful that he can't allow the outer world to disturb - something amazing that anyone of us would be lucky to take a glance at ... but most of us are not ...
very well seen and composed, thanks for sharing and have a great day,
