Judge’s Feedback:
“Its hard to tell why I love this photograph so much but I can sense a story behind this man’s portrait. It is a great environmental portrait which makes the viewer nostalgic.” – Jevgenij, former CoinaPhoto contest winner.
“The photo brilliantly employs the use of aperture to balance exposure. Not only is the photograph of a great quality, but also every bit of the man’s face tells a tale of its own. There is a mysterious depth in his eyes. The shot captures the essence of a portrait which narrates the subject’s story.” - RumaisaCoinaPhoto team member
