I found this person name Ganpat at the gangasagar Mela camp in kolkata. The vibrant color of his turban attracted me a lot and his textured face is a bonus cup of tea. Smile

Very, very strong image. You must have upped the saturation a bit I think, but this is good. Some slight burnt out areas on the face but a fine image and composition. Would leave the logo off.

I agree that more space top and bottom would be good, but it's an excellent detailed and colourful portrait nonetheless. I agree with you about his textured face. I have done a modification where I added some canvas to the bottom and sharpened his eyes, which didn't seem as sharp as the rest of his face. Whilst editing, I couldn't resist altering the background. Any background would do, as the one you have is a bit fussy. I think it would be good to have some atmosphere of the camp behind your subject, but what you have here does not convey that atmosphere.
PS: I notice there is no modification option, so cannot upload it.
