    Good timing. The framing and lighting are spot on.

    I like this a lot. You caught the passion of this young man perfectly. There must be a lot of story behind him. Composition is wonderful, the columns with varying brightness perfectly highlights the man. very nice.

    Like how he is framed in the light. Might have tried to get a picture across the man with repeating columns behond

    Very well done. The background adds a lot to this image both photographically and in essence.

    This is so good but something is missing. I think if you had been very careful at darkening the figures body while leaving the head lit, perhaps like in a ray of light, you might have moved the subject figure into as breathtaking an image as the background is. As it is, it appears a little mismatched.

    Lots of beautiful images in the challenge but this private moment, so beautifully lighted and framed besides, touches my heart. It conveys exactly what your extra info says. Love it and hope it wins, for me at least is the #1, simply great!

    Nice idea and I like the lighting behind the praying man.

    I really love the subtle shading in the pillars ( as do you I suspect- the focus is on the closest capital) the worshiper adds the religious element.

    Nice - I especially like the simplicity and the dark/light, vertical/diagonal contrasts.

    The man praying is beautifully placed against the lit columns. High in my tt.

    Right on theme... in focus well composed and lit. In my T5.
I may have tried to crop in on the man, cropping out the left and top, maybe even a square image.
