We just need to be more daring to face some unhappy "No" and respectbehyx said:may i ask, whether is it difficult to take picture of people praying or begging in Tibet? I heard that it's necessary to use long lenses as people are generally not very open to photography, because of superstitious..
Thanks tOGGY, glad to know that you like all the 3 shots ...and I hopetOGGY said:I am amazed by the 1st, 2nd and 3rd shot. Really worthy achievements.
At first, I was enthralled by only 1st and 2nd. But as I stared at the 3rd shot, it speaks to me a lot. Outstanding human portraits performing our most sacred duties - prayers!

tOGGY said:You nailed the expressions man! The third is my favourite because the blurred 'moving' hand and her intense facial expression. The prayer chain on hand adds nicely to the detail. The zero distraction achieved through bokeh blurr is nice. This shot can be sent for competition IMO.
The first is also wonderful. However comparatively speaking, the movement of the twirling prayer wheel is extremely nice but not as moving (literally and emotionally) as the hands of the lady. Man shot Has X factor and the lady has XXX factor.
The second shot exposure is superb. 2.5 stop of light tells the whole story! His eyes and frown lines is captivating. Of course, you employed the magic of close up details as well.
Keep it coming man. One shot, I will be amazed. Three in a row...er make me feel like leaving for Tibet or leaving photography.. :bsmilie: :bsmilie: :bsmilie:
