A: Do you know?

Two faces have I

One that laughs one that cries
One says hello one says goodbye
One does things I don't understand
Makes me feel like half a man

At night I get down on my knees and pray
Our love will make that other man go away
But he'll never say goodbye
Two faces have I

(Bruce Springsteen - Two Faces)

This is Shakeel, Munir's colleague... having known him for over 13 years, i don't remember ever seeing a frown on his face, not even once... though i've seen him in tears... but even then, there seemed to be a dominant calm on his face...

this was shot in 24x36 full frame :)

i did not crop this one, though i played with the contrasts and whites using Capture NX, which i have become a great fan of :)

my intention was to make the most of the shadows, and that is what guided me in composition :) Shakeel is a simple fellow, he'd look straight into the lens, but i was not gonna take a 'posed' shot, no way!! i just told him to pretend as though i'm not there! and the trick worked :)

the ISO was 800 and the light, i must mention, was a bit too harsh, posing a great challenge, making metering very difficult and tricky :)

thanks for reading the lengthy note :) let's see what you think of this image :)
