Photographer's Note

Here is another priest of a Lailbela church. Unlike the priests who come to the door with a cross to have their picture taken, or the ones who are assigned to keep an eye on church visitors and show them around, this one was so absorbed in his reading - in that dim light, no less - that he never even noticed us.

I have a peculiar fascination for this picture because of the play of shapes and shadows, so even though it isn't technically perfect, I wanted to share it.

Technical: Noiseware to clean up as much noise as I could, plus sharpening. I used dodging to bring out some of the face. Finally, Curves for each of RGB to lessen a greenish cast and bring out the other colors.
