Nick,
I love this portrait. Great use of a shallow DOF. Pleasing composition.
I only wish we could see even just a bit of his eyes.
A great capture Nick!

Thanks Carol, I really appreciate! actually I get really close to him and was not able to see the eyes, just two very narrow apertures...

This is such a beautiful portrait. I don't have any suggestions ... his expression says it all.

Great work Nick ... powerful.

Nick,

Nicely done. The tones are great and I have to agree the DOF really sets off the subject. Nice fit for the WA.

Good luck - Karen

This is an excellent capture, Nick.
You found the perfect subject for this “emotion” theme and created a great picture. Congratulations!

Reminds me of my father inlaw a proud man and determined and stern look in his face, thanks for sharing. Very nice.

For lack of a better word, this shot has so much character. His hair on his scalp, the wiry beard, the lines on his forehead and details of his face. I like images of elders...so many stories, so much depth to their lives.

Good job!
Chelle

Dear Chelle, many thanks for your comment. I also love to capture portraits of the elders because of their highly emotional expressions.

on this page you can find another portrait of a zen monk that I took in Beijing last year:
