  1. The portrait of an elder is bloody amazing. I've seen a lot of poorer images on the front of National Geographic. Is it retouched?

  2. I know the photographer very well, he is amazing at what he does. Never known anyone to be able to capture a photo like it!! Well done Mark, keep up the fantastic work. I am not sure, but I doubt it will have been retouched.
