Temple Guide

Our guide at Kalighat who took us into the temple and performed the puja for us. As it was January 1st the line to get in to the main temple was 6 hours long so he took us around to the back into a smaller portion. Unfortunately, as many people as possible were crammed into this room and we barely had any space to move. He had a worse time of it then I did as he was short and the crowd was pushing him back and forth while he was trying to perform the ceremony.

Great portrait!!
very good portrait i like his look !
I like the composition and the expression you've captured on his face. IMHO, an increase in contrast will make this more powerful smile
