Another gorgeous portrait ! Stunning colors, superb DOF, great expression face.. Yes, it's a wonderful capture !
(Ps : sometimes I read "POV" on the comments... it's the same that DOV ? I thinking that no, abd I'm curious about that ! So, you seem have a great photograph technical and I may be you can help me.. smile Thank you in advance and too bad if you don't know what is the definition of POV ! ;-)
Charles Dastodd: Hi Marie, POV just means "point of view".

thanks for the comment smile

Fine portrait Charles...a "pretty" youth.

For me, though, the star attraction is that wonderfully rusty jerry-built gate beside him.
Charles Dastodd: Ray, that gate is part of a dock. I was standing in line to get on a small ferry boat that would take me back across the Hooghly River. It was a very rundown dock as you can tell!

Fantastic portrait - he's a handsome young man. Wonderfully captured - excellent expression on his face.

Such a look of contemplation...actually quite a stern look, especially for one so young.

Pensive look, nice one charles
Deep in thought.... but the same problems we all have I guess.
You have captured his mood so well...great shot Charles!

That really is a fantastic candid shot well done
great expression. and i like that we get part of the face behind. the second mouth seems to emphasize the first one.
