This is one of those shots were everything suddenly came together. It was taken during the Faces and Places workshop that Bobbi Lane and I ran in Oman last month, and followed on from a series of portraits of this guy holding his phone. We'd bumped into him while walking through Wadi Shab and a few of us asked if we could take his portrait. After I'd taken a few I stood back and watched while other members of the group took their turn and then noticed the shot that you see here, and as you can see from the original, the light was almost perfect :)

As always, let me know what you think.

On a related note: there's a slideshow of some of the students' work from the Oman workshop linked below:
