A familiar scene. Sensitively depicted. I particularly like the point of view. And not only in the technical sense.

Gorgeous. Probably the best portrait you've uploaded yet in your Bangladeshi serie. The contextuality, even his pose, reminds me very much of one of my photos done in Burma.
The fantastic resolution power of the 'cron makes him jump out of the monitor, almost like staged on a theater scene.

Nice portrait of man and his boat. The bl/w works fine here.

Excellent meticulously composed shot. The man stands proud in front of his boat with the most notable pose.

with that boat down there, with shallow dof causing the background details just "draw" the environment of the boatman...

no idea how i missed this up until now!
his look, his strong face, his strong pose, the angle you used to capture the entire scene from, his very well defined presence, the shallow depth of field used to show him even more clearly and the boat & water to complete the story, the beautiful black&white presentation, all in all make for a very eye appealing portrait to me. not easy to forget!
