This is a monk I shot at the Bull Temple in Mysore, India. Moments before I put a few Rupees into his tray and in one fluid movement he put an orange chrysanthemum in my hand and with one finger put a Bindi on my forehead, similar to his own.

Good catch. I like those reaction shots. Good choice of field depth: the man is perfectly sharp and the background is blurred.

Nice! I would crop top and left more.

Perfect portrait, good out-centered leaving enough space left and top to keep him in the picture, very sharp towards background out of DOF. Good POV makes him looking downward enforcing his proud look.
