I came across this guy in the Muttrah Souq (Muscat, Oman), selling traditional Omani canes and rings, and decided to ask him if he'd mind if I photographed him. As soon as I asked though he immediately adopted this slightly unnerving pose, so I shot a few frames and then thanked him for his time. Once I'd stopped taking photographs he smiled and waved goodbye. I'm not sure quite why he thought I wanted the 'ferocious' look, and I doubt I'd have approached him if he'd looked like this from the outset, but it was certainly a look that suited him :)
In other news ...
I'll be running two post-production workshops in Austin, Texas in February 2011. The first is a one-day HDR workshop on the 4th, while the second is a two day workshop on Creating Dramatic Images, covering a range of intermediate and advanced post-production techniques. If you'd like some further information on the course content, costings, and so on, please email Dave Wilson who will be coordinating both workshops:

We already have a lot of provisional interest in both workshops, so if you think you'd be interested in either of them drop Dave a line fairly soon.
