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) #4331805

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 #4333512

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.
