Disturbed

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Disturbed
Disturbed
f/7.1, 1/200 secs, ISO 400, Lens 28-90 mm. I follwed this man for about ten minutes and suddenly he turned and looked at me with anger, I clicked. On enquiring from passers by, I learnt that this man is a insane person who roams about along the banks of river Ganges. Shot taken in Kanpur on the banks of river Ganges. I was impressed by his expressive eyes.

WOW, Tarun - this is an EXCEPTIONAL portrait capture!! I really like EVERYTHING about it!! Like you, I ESPECIALLY like his eyes - I think they are VERY expressive of his disturbed 'soul'!! I'm sure that we'll be seeing this image again next month, after the judging is completed - well, I certainly hope we do, anyway!! GREAT work, Tarun!! :o)

Ohh Tarun! This has so much to say about this poor guy! Guess there was no way to get a release.

when I first saw it, it appeared as if he had a cross on his head ~ you certainly made a great capture here!

Wow, Tarun! I stared at this image for a long time to try and read his face and eyes. You have certainly captured his fear, sadness, curiousity, confusion, anger but also the humanness of this unfortunate man!!!
i can almost asssure you that he was aware of your presence the whole time b/c with such a look of fear on his face his senses were very probably very heightened. Amazing capture!!! Patrick

Tarun, this is an awesome portrait and a phenomenal subject. It is very dramatic with the side lighting and his most disturbed expression. Great portrait!!

This is indeed an excellent capture, Traun. I feel such sadness when I look at this poor dear man and I wonder...what is his life like, what must he endure? Oh how very blessed I am!
