The light at the perfect moment to enlight him, or is it his inner light that shines out of his soul ?
I like the perspective and the other figure leaving the frame in distance.
And above all, the man's fingers rolling his prayers sweetly.

He's wearing traditional clothing and what looks like a modern Trilby hat. Interesting contrast.
