Harjono - Awesome portrait. Looks like one that would appear on the cover of National Geographic. The portrait speaks clearly of a hard life. Great Capture. #821319

Your portraits are astounding and marvelous, Harjono! This is no exception! Where do you live? Outstanding! I enjoyed them all when I visited your gallery! Pretty portraits of the young and beautiful are nice... but your choice of subjects is much more interesting, and captures the Human Spirit so very well! #5428768
