This is an image from my new gallery to come with scenes from Mountain Athos (Agion Oros).
I promise you that I will try to edit some of the 2500 pictures I took there, as soon as possible.

1/80s f/6.3 at 17.0mm iso400 full exif

other sizes: small medium large original auto

Hello Antonis. A powerful image indeed, as this man appears to contemplate the scene. Rich, absorbing tones and great angles. Wonderfully appropriate limited dof. A photo for a frame. All my best, Michael.

I love the way his eyes are cast to the ground, in a moment of introspection.

You have captured a sense of thoughfulness in this. Beautiful shot.

Excellent image.

A powerful image. Even with the face turned, the posture says so much.

Loneliness.. The basic characteristic of their life in Mount Athos. Only in that way they will get closer to God.

Lost in worthwhile thought...

So much culture in one image...fantastic, Antonis!

I see a life of introspection thrust into everyday exsistence.
Fabulous Antonis.

the dof and contrast between the subject and his bg does make it look lonely. great job.
