A candid shot in the streets of Pushkar, India. Let me know what you think.

I think each would stand well on its own.

Otherwise, I am not a fan of the HDR look, way overdone for my taste.

The individual certainly merits time and study (if he is cooperative) - wonderful subject and opportunity.

Regards,

Bob

Nice character study of an interesting character. I think it would be stronger as a single image. I found the other two tighter crops of the same shot redundant and distracting from the larger image.

I'd suggest cropping it a bit tighter and blurring the background a bit (I used lens blur in CS5) for better separation from the busy background. I also bumped the contrast a bit and selectively sharpened the face and hands...

Pretty much in agreement with the others.
Better as three images. Each is strong enough and the presentation is less busy.
Chuck's crop and background blurring isolates the subject better, makes for a stronger statement.
I am not an HDR fan, but I think these are done very well. No obvious haloing, no outrageous color, nicely emphasizes texture and dimension. If these are not HDR, I am curious what processing you used.
I like the toning very much.
Pose is intriguing: what is he looking at? His eyes lead up and out of the frame, effectively.

Thanks guys... I am also of the opinion that 3 photographs could be better...

These are not HDRs but some dodge / burn and processing to extract the details and to add drama.

I like the new crop.

The guys was sitting on the porch of a temple and probably was looking at a window of restaurant on first floor across the street... I have a bunch of shots of this guy but above set is my most favorite..
