Holy Man With Yellow Ribbon

January 12, 2010  •  Leave a Comment

I am delighted to share my winning shot on a DPC contest. Recently a contest called "One In 7 Billion" has been completed. I was winner on 3rd place & got a yellow Ribbon .
The Holy Man About the image:

I have submitted the image taken in my trip to Maheshwar on 3rd Jan 2010. On that morning at Narmada ghat I found this interesting charachter & I requested to allow me to take his portrait. He was humble enough to allow me for that. The morning sunlight & the breeze helped me for adding in the image.I really want to thank him for resulting in nice portrait & giving me a winner shot.

Camera settings:
This shot was taken with my telephoto lens Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS. The light was nice to get nice aperture setting as f/8.0 with high shutter speed like 1/640 sec. I even though increased my ISO to 200 because I was not with tripod & didn't want to miss the shot. He was having far distance from the stairs in the background & I was shooting with the focal length of around 90mm so the f/8.0 allowed me to take sharp image with shallow background adding only colors in the background helping for the image.
