This beautiful man was playing didjeridoo at Echo Point in the Blue Mountains Sydney, he plays for the tourists, not only does he play excellently, i was astounded to hear him speak fluent Japanese with the large contingent that visit daily. I had to lighten this pic in ps slightly to show some of his magnificent features as he was facing away from the natural sunlight. Nikon D50 F5.6 - 1/640

    This is a wonderful portrait. If I may be so bold to respond to other comments here and in other communications, I would suggest maybe look a little closer at the background for to me the blurred line behind this amazing person's head is just a wee bit distracting. This may be what another commenter was troubled by but was not able to put into words. Just a little elevation may have made a more fitting background. Hard to say for sure, just a suggestion. Really love the sharpness and composition and when added to the story of this man, WOW.

    Unbelievable that this great photo didn't make it into the Gallery! You have masterfully captured the spirit and the culture of these indigenous people in this superb picture.
