Fantastic Photo of the Day 

Looking for photography tips, I recently read over the wonderful photo article compiled by The Atlantic's Alan Taylor in which he shares a number of the early entries from National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest and arranges them according to preference. While I found each consecutive image breahtaking in its own right, none was more arresting and powerful than the portrait of a Sadu pilgrim from Varanasi, India taken by Craig Stevenson (shown below). It is one of the most engaging phtos I have ever seen and I believe any photographer would be proud to have captured it. Enjoy.
