Hi Slobodan,
Excellent portrait showing clearly the religious relationship of his faith.The light on his face giving great detail and the light through the window giving details of the pictures of Christ and important items on his table. A fantastic presentation.

Hi Slobodan
Agree with Jonathan about the lighting, it's what makes this photo a little special. Good composition as well.

Hello Slobodan,
I also agree with Erwin. It resembles a painting of the old masters. Fantastic!

Hello Slobodan

I have revisited this image many times, I am in awe of the lighting on this image. You have taken a wonderful portrait of this Monk. Beautiful capture with pose and genuine smile. The simple lifestyle shown also has an added charm to the image. This image is not about the technical side, but the mood and overall appeal. very well done.


Great picture resembling a Rembrandt painting style
