Photographer's Note

Returning back to Mamalla in the late afternoon we stumbled on a small farmers village where people gathered at a cross point after work.
I noticed this man with his Vishnu signs on his face and bold as I can be I went up to him sitting right next to him. He was proud but more then that, what does he still got in his eyes that we maybe lost a bit under the way ? You tell me ?

Each time I see his portrait it is like I still sit next to him, take my place for once ... you get the feel ?

PS The V-sign stands for Vishnu, easy to remember :)

About the wide angle I used here, I reduced a lot the distortion up to a more acceptable one which resulted in a slight converging feel of the background.

And about the post processing, there could be something very useful for you if you follow the links here.
