The rim light separates the herder from the background well. Another excellent portrait, Jeremy.

As Dave says, the rim lighting works very well and the side on view of the herder coupled with his action pose and determined facial expression makes it clear he's heading off on a journey so his central placement works well in that he's going off and out of frame rather than across it. The separation of figure and ground is helped by the DoF blurring of the camels whilst yet again retaining enough information to put him in context, plus he carries a stick and it doesn't look like it's for walking! This is a brilliant series Jeremy and I learning a lot for travel/journalism photography thanks Smile

I can't beat a critique like almiles has done here so well,
so I'll just say this is a superb travel image, looks great in mono though it would probably be good in colour also.
The focus on the camel trader is wonderful with all his paraphernalia.
