HA - i knew it was you... the guy looks too omani not to have been you. Nice shot and a good finish :)

I was wondering about the nail polish too - just asked my mum - she says it is henna and that like kohl it is used by men (old school men i would probably add to that ;))

I have no idea.

This is a different approach to the Challenge and I like it! I especially like all of the yellows/oranges and the touch of the complimentary blue.

His hands look so worn. Hand craft really is an old way.

Great depiction of old ways. Warm color, nice simple composition, side lighting works nicely. My only wish is that I could see a little more face to bring out a little more of the man, not just the weaving. Great shot!

Very neat weaving, I think this could have improved by getting his whole body into the frame.

the details of this shot, make you want to investigate it more, the colour is spot on and crisp and clean, a straight 10 across the board
