s h e p h e r d
Thanks to the old man for kindly allowing me to take his photograph. On one morning walk I saw him setting outside his hut & the vibrant colorful clothes attracted me. After returning home I took my camera specially for capturing him for this contest. He was a little bit shy but I was able to make him comfortable & got a one of my best shot.

let me echo the sentiments of those already expressed above. this is fantastic...kitty mentioned National Geo above...this reminds me of Steve McCurry's world famous photo of the Afghan girl! the colors are wonderful and I love how the lines on his face correlate with the lines created in the fabric of his headwrap. Congratulations on a great image!

Totally AMAZING!!! Something I would find on the cover of National Geographic!!!

Great capture. Love how the lines of the turban and wrinkles of the face complement each other. Great colors and contrast and expression and I could go on and on!!!

Super congrats!!! Nancy J Locke

This would or should be on the cover of National Geographic, as it tells a story, has fantastic composition, color tonality. This is a portrait that everyone should strive to emulate.

If this not win a first prize with BP.com, the judges are blind!

This is a shockingly great photograph. You can see a story in this man's face. Everything is fabulous about it from the composition, the expression, how he is looking right at you, the colours, everything. Congrats on such a well deserved POTD. I think it should be in national geo too!!
