Everything about this photo is excellent.
sharpness, vibrant colours, bokeh and composition.
You're up early ...! By my calculations it's 2am in Malaysia!
Good shot - tight framing and strong colours, a well managed DOF. This is one example where fill-flash or reflector would have helped light your subject a little better against the bright background.
At the same time, it might also have broken the mood of the moment.
Good work, anyway.

Hi Bill, Nice note... This man certainly looks content. Peaceful, serene, and happy. Great lighting with the sun shining on his robe. I do wish his face was lit just a bit more as he looks so expressive. Nonetheless, an awesome photo. :) Lisa

What a wonderful portrait! Excellent sharp and good contrast. It isn't easy to get a well ballanced picture with the person inside and the light comming from outside. You managed to get this so well. Excellent sharp and wonderful warm colours. The pose of the monk is priceless too!

Good portrait in a beautifull light. The shallow DOF is sufficient to define the environment without disturbing. Image is well exposed so it reveals excellent details in shadows and in highlight. Excellent work and TFS.

You did capture well the serious expression of the monk. The subject is well framed. The point of view is allwoing us to see the details and colors of his clothing. The surrounding light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Another great portrait Bill. Thats a real rickety chair hes sitting on but he also looks like the swind mightblow him away so the chair should hold up. He makes our lives seem overly complicated but I certainly like my luxuries and would struggle to give them up.

An excellent portrait!
Impressive details were captured in the old man, the pin is super sharp!
I like the tight framework making the viewer focus on the subject and the colors are well reproduced and appear very natural ...
How many stories this old man has to tell us!

I like the tight crop Bill , my only crit is the slight lack of illumination on him nevertheless a great capture of this very frail man in his orange robe ,your control of the BG light is great , no lack of details overall ,What is his age ? A good question i am afraid i do not have an answer ,he might be quite old indeed !
