Great portrait, Rajan! He really looks the way the sole inhabitant of a ghost town should look. However, the follow-up portrait in color (on your blog) lets him look too much like a businessman, IMHO. Nice series.

Well, it's a twist on rich white tourists going to India and shooting local colour...

Fair seems fair.

Yes it is.
The fire is 61000 hectare and going to burn for at least 2-3 more weeks.

Reminds me of this, which I took abut four years ago with my then brand-new G10. It's finished now, although I think largely unlet.

Wrong thread! Doesn't that depict what the CIA used to call "termination with extreme prejudice"?

Looks like everybody got at least a shot like this, you could probably make an entire new topic for it  ;D
I know I have several but I'm not so sure I can find them beyond this one which I took in Boston and I previously posted it some time ago

@random thoughts

The exposure is excellent and the tone range is wide and visually appealing. Cutting up body parts is a surefire way to engage the viewer at least initially. The framing is provocatively different enough to invite some curiosity about the "rest of the picture." And the stump mirrors the leg in an interesting way, and the lace whatever adds interesting content. A story emerges if one cares to think about it, and I think it can also invoke social commentary for the idea that we are normally looking at young legs, not old ones.

The photograph reveals the photographer and it is quite effective. It has more stopping power than most, and I enjoy the idea of it a lot. I see an artist's eye.

There's some visual interest in the parallel lines of rocks. And the exposure is ok considering the overcast flat lighting. Where I think the photograph fails is the framing and composition. Everyone in the world has stood on this cliff and looked at the ocean with this angled down facing view. The minute you look at the picture you work backwards to the photographer standing there with camera pointed down. Sometimes, you need to use your feet and hunt down a more interesting angle.

I can see where this content could be made interesting in a photograph, but it would take a bit more work. More trial and error even to find a more intriguing POV.  I might be able to imagine an abstract featuring these parallel lines of dirt, rock, ocean, rock, ocean, sky and so forth. Maybe, maybe not, but you wouldn't get that with this static old view.

I think you found a subject- I just don't think you nailed what the subject had to offer.
