Here is a Zoroastrian "monk" (a lost religion from Persian era). He is keeping the holy pilgrimage, their holy fire kept for more than 2500years alive. This one is their holy place (like their Mekka) and every year they are gathered here for their annual meeting and pilgrimage. This picture is taken in their Holy Cave in the mountains after the desert!

Nikos, I really like your concept here. Nice use of a wide angle to create a really extreme closeup and a sense of distance. I do think the shot would have more dynamism to it, though, if some of the unnecessary space were cropped away; I've added a workshop with the shot cropped to show you what I mean. Hope you find it useful.
