This was taken at the hostel in Oaxaca. While hanging out in the common area, this fellow travelling dozed off while reading a book. I couldn't resist the colors and the position he was in.
I just wished I had gotten his name so I could send him this photo!

Hi Spunkie - nice timing! I like how his horizontal pose contrasts against the colorful vertical lines in the cloth.

Hello Natasha. A beautiful and color-glad photo, - and an exemplary Schanppschuss in addition. Really very beautifully. Best regards, Wolfgang.

This well composed as well. Like the way you divided the frame in two and how the lines point towards the sleeping traveler.

thanks for giving me the chance to visit your gallery... you have many very good pics, I esp. like this one, because proportions (vertically seen the golden ratio, horizontally seen also, if you take the shoulder as the highest point) are excellent, and also the contrast coming from the uniform wall and the colourful bed.
Cheers, compliments, Chris

You couldn't resist taking photo and I can't resist praising it. Fine composition and really well relaxed body in the middle :))

Saw this one on the opening page of TE today. Excellent shot, the colours of the blanket and the wall give the shot a geat local colour. Good work. I hope the guy will get to see your shot.
