 Celle-ci me rappelle une des premières photo que j'ai prise lors de mon arrivée à Mumbay.le regard du chauffeur de taxi dans le retro à 1h du matin. Fascinant de croiser ce type de regard. J'imagine que tu ne faisais le fier dans cette voiture et à cette vitesse ;o) !

I woukd have liked to see this more clean, less processed....what's shown however is visualy very interesting. The flag, the driver's look and the motion all make this a very nice image indeed

So yes, the intensity is definately there. Those eyes, burning eyes. What I do feel is that you have bumped the saturation a bit too much. That green is bleeding into everything; his face showing hints of a green tinge. I don't mind the color bleed in some photos, but the area that retains natural color must be large enough to hold the attention of the viewer; here, I'm not sure that's the case. The photo is good, I just think the processing is off a little.

 This one is all abut the blurry GREEN and all that I imagine it represents for you, and the intense, "tribal" intensity of the driver's eyes. Great atmosphere here, man - I'm in!

 Luko: it's been a long time - spectrally long to employ a term Conrad might've hit on. Eerie, gloomy greens and a headlong rush into the jungle, appropriate for your theme. I'm just back after a year or two hiatus myself, from the abyss.

Vanautu on the move.  And now it's sinking, I understand.  Fantastic moment of initmacy here married that omnipresent cliché gesture of nationalism -- the flag hanging from the cabbie's rearview mirror.
