    Good question.
    I am afraid but I was not able to send him a copy because I lost his card.

    In the present days I am very careful about this and I keep the adresses in a safe place.
    I think it is wise to send the images to people so they keep letting us to take their pictures, don't you think so ?

    What ? The man or the image ? Or, perhaps both ?

    Definitely both! That man has presence and the photographer did a great job.

    Antonio,
    The face is great. I don't like the hand. Why don't you just crop it out?

    The hand is evocative! It shows the sort of work that the man does.

    Re: Pushkar - India

    It appears to me that the hand was de-emphasized in the original post processing, so I was just wondering why not get rid of it? Seeing the hand doesn't tell ME anything about what he does or doesn't do. This is an example of what I had in mind.

    Pushkar - India



    Hands are indicative of humanity—opposing thumbs and all that.


    Either way is possible, but I prefer the hand as part of the whole, part of the man’s humanity.

    Terrific, as usual! Do wish you would share details of the cemera, lens and post processing!
    Thanks!

    Thank you for the comments about the hand.

    Sorry Brian, but I also like the hand and I will keep it.
    I can understand what you mean and your crop is fine but I have also to consider that I have lost the original raw file and I wouldn't like to crop too much.
    A "small" detail: all portraits in the collection I am making must be vertical/portraits and with this crop (3/4) and have an apparent proportion of the face in the face, if I explain myself correctly.
    I now have a tif which is - maintaining the crop - a way to keep this quality. However, I have to see one day - if ever I make an exposition of Indian portraits - how this image behaves printed.

    Watch the importance of the personage in the image.
    Would it be so appealing if it was... say, me for example ?
    Watch the importance of he as Indian with turban being so different from us with a different culture...
    So, the image is good because the person involved, the treatment in the image or for both ?
    I thing the image is good - yes I also consider it to be good - because of the hole scene, subject and treatment involved.

    I think it is a good idea.

    Anotonio, I think the technical aspects of the photo are good. Beyond this, you have succeeded in capturing an interesting subject. I think the turbin/cultural elements are definitely part of that. The different shades of the skin and beard also contribute. I do not think my pale skin would look nearly as interesting in a turbin! Perhaps you should try a self portrait for comparison?

    What ?? A self portrait ? My skin is way too light.
    Can't you guess through the avatar or any other picture I have posted before ?

    Yes, that is why you would make a good comparison to see if someone pale like you or I can pull off a shot like this
    My face is lacking the 'character' to do it, so I volunteered you
