Great holmertz 2014-06-28 5:59

Hello Andre.
A very elegant portrait from an inventive POV where you could use the ground as a perfect neutral background. The little novice's penetrating eyes may not be quite like that Afghan girl's but could nevertheless be haunting me for a while. The title is amusing though.
Kind regards,
Gert

Default To holmertz: Not the Afghan Girl!!!

Hi Gert!

OMG... Don't go thinking that I was trying to compare my shot with the Afghan girl!...

Please have a look at the workshop, where I added the photo I am referring to. You will immediately see the parallel. McCurry subject is younger, smaller and he has a more compelling face, but when I saw the small monk among a bunch of older monks coming in my direction, he seems just as small.

I spontaneously thought about Steve McCurry photo and I tried to compose a similar shot the way I had it in mind... with 3 frames only, while the other monks were waiting for him. To really make it the way McCurry did it, I would have needed a younger monk, or a stepladder.

But there's only one McCurry...

Thank you for passing by Gert!

Andrι
