Not my favorite genre , but because of Formula DPC , I had to enter.
Captured outdoor with natural lighting.
This was a real tribesman from Irian Jaya (West Papua Indonesia) in singapore for a travel promotional exhibition.
Captured at 200mm focal length.

Will probably be another sub 6 score. Darn !!!

wow, my score is still holding above a 6.6 , can't really believe it. Lets see what happens.
I was with my kids , when I came across this Indonesian exhibition. The guy was specially flown in to promote Indonesia and he was so popular with the crowd.

I had little choice but to get a snapshot of him while he was posing with the crowd.
I wished my kids were not with me so that I could more of 1 on 1 with him. I got this 1 shot that I had to selectively crop to make it into a usable portrait type shot, that is why I am delighted with how the crowd is voting.

Still holding on 135 votes at 6.82+. I'm stoked.
This tribesman is from Irian Jaya (West Papua). If I am not wrong from the Dani tribe.
