A Monk in Bhutan

I photographed this monk at an institution in Paro, Bhutan.

 

I probably had no more than few seconds to capture his posture and his slightly inquisitive expression. I framed and shot this real quickly.

 

It was evening time well after sunset, and there was very little light. I was shooting with Auto ISO and wasn't sure if I had a clear image. The ISO for the photograph showed 3200, which made me wonder if the image is all grainy. I quickly zoomed in and checked and was very surprised with the outcome. The photograph is easily good enough to make an 8x12 print, perhaps even larger.
