WOW !! My First blue..!!

I was expecting since score was consistently up above 7.1 but you never know until it is finished. My 2 personal best were without ribbons. Thanks to the old man for kindly allowing me to take his photograph. On one morning walk I saw him setting outside his hut & the vibrant colorful clothes attracted me. After returning home I took my camera specially for capturing him for this contest. He was a little bit shy but I was able to make him comfortable & got a winning shot.

Thanks a lot for voting & appreciating this photograph.

Almost my camera was kept off for about 2 months due to my busy schedule! It was really hard but also nice to see good score on my entry in this challenge. It is consistently above 7.1 from start & my best score until yet.Hope it continues & may turn into my first blue :)

This is an amazingly great imnage. This is just about everything I wish I could accomplish with my photography.

The sharpness, the color, the depth of the tones, not to mention you seemed to have captures a lot of the spirit of this man.

He may have been a bit shy, but his gaze into the lens is firm and sure. Very well lit, and absolutely deserving of the blue.

Congratulations on an outstanding image.
