During my trip to Narkanda Shimla, I met this person. I was impressed with his moustache. He was immediately ready to have a pic on my request.

His moustache is surely a piece of art and I understand that by Mr. Nathulal you might be referring to the famous movie character of same name. A nice candid portrait. But I wish there was more to him then just a person on street. A background or a story on the subject that you wish to portray is what makes the whole frame interesting.
Welcome to TE.
Thanks for sharing & warm regards,

That's characterful face; I like the quality of light there without hard shadows and full concentration on his facial feature. I admire your adventure with verity of photo subjects and here you certainly did your best came away with good result, it's sharp in focus on the eyes and natural colours.
You know that I love portraiture being one of fav and as for this particular close up, you need to soften the bg with shallow dof as you can see the veh, etc. etc distract pulling the attention away - short focal lens wont do although aperture is set full open at f2.8. Thus you need a fairly good long lens for this task, hopefully you can try in future and see the result.
Secondly try to shoot under shade in diffuse lighting to give the eye -the soul & life of portrait- more definition and clarity. These are my sincere critiques from the bottom of my heart hopefully acceptable to you. Lets learn and share knowledge in good spirit. Tx for reading, Congrats.

Uvek se vracamo prvoj fotografiji sa razmisljanjem dali je dobro uradjena.
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazan covek sa velikim brkovima.
Dobar rad, lepe boje.
Covek je ponosan na svoje velike brkove.
Sve najbolje za vikend, srecno.
Always return to the first photograph with thinking whether it is done well.
Good time recording and contrast nicely shown a man with a large mustache.
Good work, beautiful colors.
The man is proud of his large mustache.
All the best for the weekend, good luck.

Congratulations for your first picture on TE, almost two year ago.
One advice, place never a portrait in centre of the picture, notwithstanding a very Nice portrait with the man with moustache.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

I would like a more wider view...but his moustache is definitely a sense of his pride...also pls try to keep your subject off-centre..makes a better composition. Nice portrait otherwise

a really great portrait of this man with his huge moustache to be the eye catcher of it.Excellent the close up view as the light and the colour management.
