Original, well framed. The right hand is burn, but its a snapshot.

I like it...


Hello, Eman -
For a taxicab snap, this is quite a portrait! Unique and interesting expression; the distortion of his forehead caused by the window is very different and real; very sharp details of his face. The hand is slightly overexposed, but it is a small matter because the face is the real star of the show. Good reflexes to capture this moment.

Hello Eman

I like the portrait. Very original. Nice work.


If often troubles me when I'm in Manila, the way kids crowd the taxi and peer in through the windows - then, as I'm a foreigner, start asking for money. More often than not, I will give it - it's hard not to, knowing my circumstances and knowing theirs.
Good control of some difficult levels issues.
