Your POV makes the photo extraordinary. Also the man's deep thought tells something. I like it.

Hi Luca. I love this shot.. I just can't make sure about the feeling of the seller... I wish the guy is happy. But he looks like a bit tired, sad... hope he smiles at you though. Cheers, Tibo

I love your perspective on this bookseller in Tajikistan. The colours are very bright of the books, and it reminded me of Monopoly money. He has a very sullen look on his face. Great shot. A shame the sharpness isn't up to your usual standards.
Great shot though.
Not often, I stop to comment on a photo on the front page of the site, but this one stopped me to comment.

Very nice and original scene. I like it very much. Through the old man the picture has a very special athmosphere and thatīs what I like most ! The frame looks nice and matches well to the composition.

There can be only one critic: Excellent composition and perfect use of wide angle. Good execution.
