this is an excellent portrait Galia, a portrait as I like, not posing for the camera; sharp focus against the blured bg; I like his strong emotional facial expression;

He looks too young to be a priest! You have him in good composition and taken him at a good angle. In addition you have made good use of short focal length to throw the background out of focus which helps a lot here. Well done!

Splendid piece of street photography. Well done. Nice focu and clarity along with composition and framing. Splendid soft blurring of the background as well. Just the right amount as to still be able to distinguish what it is all. thanks for sharing.

Comment from sublime_reality


Hi Galia, it is a a 4.6 out of five from me - nothing much better could be done here. The subject stands out from a nice semi-blurry background which still shows enough to tell the context of the event - the concentration of the congregation. I wonder why there is so much colour, and possibly a red banner towards the right side of the picture - is this coincidental or some special event. The eyes are just at the most sharp point. Whatever slightest blurriness there is in the face only enhances motion and expression. Some photographers might think it is a bit too stylized , but I think not - the impression of such is at times the case is when the colours and light are just so opportune - notwithstanding some post-editing of course. However did you get in such a position as to photograph the young priest from there? Judging from the right-hand shoulder (left side of the picture) I think he only managed to brush his nice mottled coat about 99% well that morning - hardly noticeably and well enough I would say. Do you think he will buy it from you - I think priests don't have too much money. : ) Anyway, it is a great photo.

    Yes, it was taken in the old part of Jerusalem, in the market in a parade going to the church
    thanks

Oh what a nice capture. The enhancement makes this look like half photograph and half painting. Very imaginative and well done. Please keep posting your talented works.

Comment from Jack Moore


This is a very nice photo, it shows the intent on his face like he is really listening to what someone else is saying and he seems to be taking it all in. This is well framed and the focus is done really well. Keep up the great work. JackJr.
