Good face, textures, colors, and detail. I'd love to see his eyes better lit.

Calusarus from St Sorlin en Valloire, France

A great portrait. I like the tones of the sand and his cloth are almost the same…

There is an uncanny similarity in almost all your portraits of afghan citizens.. their faces have this roughness and ruggedness equaled only by Afghani terrain..yet, no hostility..
And you are at total comfort and so are they with you photographing them .

@chakrapani: Many thanks for your comments, I appreciate them. You are very perceptive! I did indeed experience no hostility only friendliness and politeness.

Ana Lúcia from Leiria, Portugal
