Man in Mumbai by Alec Chester

January 2020 - Man in Mumbai

About the Image(s)

This is a picture of a man on the street in Mumbai. I liked the way that the sun back lit his hair as well as his weathered face.
I took it with a Canon 5D Mark IV at 1/640 sec, f/4.0, ISO 1000 at 90 mm from a 24-105 mm lens.

I really like this image but I'm overwhelmed with curiosity about the orange between his eyebrows. I think the depth of field is just right to stress the facial features. The focus appears spot on his eyes. The image is balanced and leaves me with no doubt what you're trying to emphasize. Very nice. My only critique/suggestion would be to try using the adjustment brush in Lightroom (or equivalent) to tone down the highlights above his head and the hair on his left side.   Posted: 01/07/2020 22:12:16

Thanks Kurtis. Good suggestion about highlights. The orange area relates, I believe, to a Hindu sect.   Posted: 01/21/2020 07:38:45

Learn something every day. Never have seen this, but then, I've not seen a lot of Hindu pics. Thanks.   Posted: 01/21/2020 22:58:51

Alec this is one of your better ones yet. Love the tight cropping, love all the detail preserved in his face. Good rim lighting, good depth of field as well.   Posted: 01/22/2020 10:36:58
