Same spot which gives me a lot of frames this January... A sadhubaba attracted me with his posture which define the blessings. Another attracting aspect of this frame is his vacant eyes... As if he can see a long (or may be nothing)...

His expression, especially his eyes is indeed quite fascinating; he seems to be miles away in his mind. Excellent capture with superb control over depth of field; I like the inclusion of the man in the background, who contributes much to the overall success of the image in my mind. Top class colours and sharpness.

altro eccellente ritratto avente per oggetto la popolazione indiana.
Anche per questo devo farti i miei complimenti per l'eccellente momento che hai colto, la nitidezza e il taglio.
Ciao e buona giornata

a masterful portrait composition with the sadhubaba pin sharp and commanding the scene.
The man behind is OOF and adding to the scene.
Beautiful colours and clarity.

L'utilisation de cette belle longue focale permet d'aller chercher une très belle image dans la foule tout en isolant une personne en particulier. J'aime le regard très concentré de cet homme et la belle couleur orange.

This is a very good portrait and the look in his eyes is particularly well captured. Very good colours and and a picture with strong dignity.

Hello Subhendu - The Sadhu's eyes are what caught my attention in this shot. They are quite fascinating. Is he seeing another reality? It looks like it. Then again perhaps he has smoked too much ganja.
A nicely managed portrait

This is another amazing portrait picture in your gallery. There is something very interesting and intriguing in this man's expression that I need to stop and looked at. I like it! Beautifully done!

Un très beau portrait d'excellente qualité technique. Très bonne profondeur de champ et netteté et couleurs en harmonie.

Fantastic portrait of the holy man. Good timing to capture him with his blessing posture. His gaze is intriguing too, I agree with you he either knows everything or nothing. I like the way you make him stand out against the blurred BG, good selective focusing. Khub bhalo chobi, thanks for sharing.

He may be blessing the politicians, they need it the most nowadays.
Wonderful capture, sharp to the point. Yes, his vacant eyes do attract.
ourania (33607) 2014-03-29 7:24
indeed, you found a lot of interesting characters and created a lot of wonderful portraits there. This portrait is exquisitely clear. I like very much the interaction between the sadhubaba's expressive face and raised hand, both are very attractive and reinforce the impact of each other. The direct gaze coming from the blurry background is eye-catching too. I also like the gentle light and the chromatic harmony. Congratulations and thank you!
all the best, have a lovely weekend,

This is an excellent portrait, and you have commented very well on the sadhu's look and his "vacant" eyes. That's a good description. He is very timely captured with superb light and sharpness but he makes me feel slightly uneasy. I get a similar feeling from the man looking at you from behind with wat seems to me a rather sceptical attitude.
fabbs99 (16783) 2014-03-29 22:21
The Sadhu baba is giving his blessings with vacant eyes - Probably not sure whether it will yield any good to the person receiving it.Nice colors and expressions on his face.Keep sharing.TFS.

Respect pour cette scène....
Magnifique portrait le regard lointain, les couleurs et la lumière sont magnifique, bon DOF, superbe scène de vie
CLODO (30842) 2014-03-30 7:18
really live eyes with the white dots in them, and a gentle gesture of his hand, in an orange world.
abmdsudi (44856) 2014-03-31 4:00
I love the focus on the vital element - the eyes are sharp spot on target and perfectly positioned at the third and the rest just flows smoothly The exposure is subtle with bags of detail, terrific moment caught so timely of a seriously but cool eternal sadhubaba. Great portrait with nice direction of light and the cast of shadow on the facial features enhancing the depth. Daily religious life well depicted and my appreciation for this shot, that all add to the quality and intimacy. Excellent, TFS
P/S: Thk to your comments on my last upload; That's how the filter works Subehndu when two extreme lighting conditions - eg sunset and sunrise- come into play; darker foreground & lighter sky area become balanced throughout. I suggest you invest on this filter for landscape photography then keep shooting and see the results,. Go to website to learn more on this topic, you wont regret.

I always admire photographers,who have such great intuition for portraits.This one is superb!
It´s perfectly framed,has excellent clarity while the background stayed well blurred and what´s most important it shows perfectly human emotions and feelings.
Evocative and expressive image!
Have a nice evening
macjake (57974) 2014-04-05 23:47
I have to agree with you 100%, its all in the eyes with this one!
the eyes tell the story, the eyes draw us in and keep us focused on the man.
love the colors too.
tatadalou (6727) 2014-04-25 20:06
