Photographer's Note

Just to prove tat he was just posing for me. See the range of emotions that he could project, a contrast to that of his previous portrait. Well, he is a Filipino.

Filipinos are inherently passionate in anything that they are doing. Even just posing in front of the camera. Once they get at home with you, they can turn out to be VERY cooperative and professional about it.

Personally, I like this picture more than the previous one. One, I like his happier expression. I also like the white part as it compliments his mood. Sort of metaphorical too...happiness and hope even amidst poverty. I always believe that being happy is a personal choice.

I am posting the colored version for comparison. Again this question: which version is better?
