[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I photographed this shepherd who was wearing these clourful clothes and was driving his cattle. Here he is looking intently at a person who called him from afar and this profile shot really impressed me with his deep set eyes, a chiseled nose, white mustache and thick eye-brows so I do hope friends would like it..

Hi Abid

Please understand this is my opinion as an amateur only, and many will disagree with me.

I like the tight composition, but it would be nice to see a little more of his face. Also the focus is on the turban which is leaving his face a little soft.

Hello Abid,
An unusual portrait with the contrast having been well handled. I like the profile shot for the same reasons as you. This probably is a candid shot but I think he may have been comfortable about being photographed and I wonder what you could have achieved with fill-in flash. Also, there is a tendency with some portrait photographers with some images to leave space behind rather than the conventional space in front and I think here is an opportunity for that - to crop off on the left. However, very good as is. Well done.

Hello Abid! Good idea. Amazing head. Wonderful point of view. Good background. Very good exposure and capture. Superb sharpness. Interesting note. Well done!
