This shot of a Gelukpa Sect Monk was taken at Drepung Monastery, Lhasa, Tibet. The time was just before midday, which meant the lighting from the sun created a strong shadow. This created a great composition of the lone Monk and his shadow.

Fine shot - would like to see a larger version, this one doesn't do your subject justice.

O wow, this is a great photo!! His shadow turned out so crisp. I like how the shadow looks different from the monk, it's like his shadow is mocking him. Great job :) :D

Very interesting... see, I didn't know he was a monk.

And I understand it's yours; I'm pretty sure everything we all upload that wasn't a stolen concept is "ours."

Fantastic. The title evokes a transformation of the subject... his shadow seems that of a superhero, or at least a young man. It's also a great study of the black-white-red motif.

Thank you. I love the black, white red motor! :).

I like how you say that his shadow seems that of a young man, in his former years.
