Great happypoppeye 2007-05-31 1:07

Great photo. The sky is a little "blown" out but no big deal. The expression of the man is great and his posture is really good also. I especially like the hand on the jambiya, the detail in the belt, the prayer beads around the jambiya and his expression (of course). Great daily life photo.

Default To happypoppeye: Thanks...

...for being the first to critique one of my photos.

Before my trip to Yemen I came across this site during my research, and went through the whole Yemen gallery. Now I've come back, signed up, and went through it again, happy to see many places that I've come to love in this beautiful country - the most hospitable I've ever visited.

As to the blown sky, it doesn't overly worry me - as you must know it's nearly impossible to avoid in the mostly harsh daylight in Yemen. I think a blown sky isn't always bad - it can actually convey the actual atmosphere, the real, normal light. Never mind the generic "early in the morning and late afternoon are best" advice - not only would that severely limit one traveling around, but I just try to take the light as it is at aby time. Though not always successfully. ;)

Totally agree with you about the light and time of day...Enjoy the trip, not just morning and late afternoon. Welcome to TE.
