This is such a fantastic photo. It's born digital? I suspect it would look even more stunning as a gelatin silver. I'm totally not a film snob, but there's just something about this one photo that I can't explain. Maybe it's the lighting or the tonal variations of the grays. I just think this one, while already captivating, would be even more amazing with the way light plays on a gelatin silver print. Anyway, this is really wonderful work. I'd suggest it for a DD if you hadn't just won one already.

Thank you very much for such glowing appreciation. Yes it is "born" digital. I think I would agree with you about your feeling that it would look better as a silver gelatin print. It has been too long since I played in my dark room and used film. Maybe I need to dust off the equipment and bring it out again.

Its not only the tonal greys of the image, I think its also the subject matter, so very typical of the early era of gelatin silver prints.

Thank you once again ..

Looks like it could have been taken any time in the last 1300 years. Love it.

Absolute heretical idea, but have you tried flipping the image LR? With him looking back into the field, it might strengthen the composition? But then I read LR - for a RL reader, this might be better!

Now I know why you call yourself African "Observer"
The image is almost from biblical times ..

Actually I did manage two pictures of him. One from the left and one from the right, both very similar, but I found this version to flow more naturally.

I am a LR Reader, by nature, English is my first language. (I grew up in the UK)
Urdu and Arabic are secondary languages which I started learning when I was 16.

Do you find that the LR/ RL thing impacts your feeling for composition in general? I find that bottom left - upwards to the right line very important in the flow and rhythm of an image, and have often wondered how RL readers, and Chinese folk, would find that.

Actually I have never analysed, I just go by gut feeling.
perhaps you as an outsider .."observer" could comment better on any such tendency I may Have.
