    Little distort may be beside the head I think......
    Don't know any good technique to take such photos in Sun :S

    I really like the hazing/misty feel to this photo. Also the orange hue adds a nice warming touch. I actually like the distortion next to his head. It adds to whole theme and feel of the photo. The only thing I would be picky about would be to have a tighter crop next time, but that could just be me. Nice work, Moni.

    Very nice shot. That bright sun gave it that Harpper was talking of I would guess, which I like, makes it also seem like he's in a really dry dusty place, like on the edge of a desert and we don't see it cause he's facing it. I'm not sure if that makes any sense, but it makes me need a drink! Heh heh, nice work :)

    I like this, but I think that the very bright sky hurts the eyes a little.
    The slanting morning sun gives this photo its special effect, admittedly, but there's too much of the sky to be seen.
    And the "silhouette" isn't QUITE one, there are traces of the boy's face to be seen, and this is tearing me now between wanting to see his face and wanting to have just a black silhouette... I'm quite undecided here.
    The scene as such, though, and the way you caught it, is appealing.

    hi moni, very nice photo, looks like you have some good comments here.

    The thing that I would have done different is frame the boy between the 'wedge' between the trees. As it is now, a the silouette of the boys head competes with the trees in the background. Move him slightly to the left, and then you have more of a distinction because the boys head in up against the sky. Also try another angle where the sun is directly behind the boys head or walking staff.

    Another thing, having the large staff here so close to the center divides the picture into sections, i think moving it a bit to the left may also help the composition.

    excellent theme, and its a nice shot moni :)

    The light didn't bother me at first but when I looked at the picture at night time it became too bright. During the day when I have light coming through my window, the picture's lighting seems to work. You probably should change it judging by other people's reactions.

    i could be a little picky about the eyes (as La Foto said...and a litttle little about moving the boy to the center -;))..but i won't be...for a first time!!!
    this is a really sensitive shot, moni! :) :) :)

    Very nice Moni. I would second what Mark said earlier about framing the head.
