  1. What a photo. Excellent portrait, and I’m wondering if the man is looking up at something or someone, or pondering something. It could be either way. His eyes are the focal point of the photo for me…after all, eyes are the windows to the soul.

    And what a brilliant quote by Pablo Picasso. All three depict the human face differently, from different angles…and none really are wrong :)

  2. A top class photograph Uday in a world full of portraits, this is a stand out piece of work in my view. Utterly compelling light and shadow.
    On the question posed by Pablo Picasso; definitely not the mirror. The human ego, in its positive or negative form, distorts the image. Its a close call between photographer and painter!
