Per a suggestion from my friend Tacheles, I have masked the background and replaced it with a dark radial gradient (from sampled tones of the subject). Film aficionados may not like the digital adjustments compared to the original. Obviously, the background could be further modified . . .

This image was shot from a Zenza Bronica S2 Medium Format camera with a NIKKOR-P 1:2.8 f=7.5cm lens using Kodak T-MAX 100 film, the negative scanned by an Epson Perfection V600 and digitally manipulated with Photoshop.

Utterly amazing! Perfect! Pretty darn good!
I can hear a distant pixel-symphony, when Scott is fiddling with masks and layers in PS.
Perhaps it would have been quicker to grant the monk some dollars and a black cloth in oder to keep the background sombre. ;))
