While visiting the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, I came across this elderly Arab man. I couldn't tell if he was blind or not but he was begging for money as we passed by him. He was located on the very same road that Jesus took from the heights of the Mount of Olives down to the Garden of Gethsemane at the base. As so many visitors walk down this road, it must be a good place for begging.

Thanks, Frank! I found that the naturally occuring limestone that is used for all the construction in Jerusalem makes a great backdrop for photography. It is interesting and the tones are wonderful.

I love it! Even the bits of trash help to tell this photo's story. Well done!

A very nice candid, and agree, the tonal quality of this photo is wonderful. The crispness of detail is pretty nifty too.

Thanks Tom and Casey. Casey, this does look very sharp at web size. In reality, the picture is a bit soft and while I've printed it out at 13x19 size, I do have to work hard to get it to look sharp at that size.

hey geoff...wat's the resolution you're printing at?

lol, it may be obvious, and you've probably known this for a while, but if you don't, make sure you're resizing the picture (if you're printing from photoshop) with the 'resample' unchecked

if it's checked...changing the size without changing the resolution first will lower the amount of pixels on each side, and changing the resolution will interpolate...

uncheck resample, type in 300 as the DPI (or on PS the "PPI") and then if the file isn't big enough to be 13x19, then change the size till it works...as long as the resolution is about 150..it should look pretty good..

if not...look up Genuine Fractals
