      Super duper composition. This reminds me of some of Steve McCurry's work. Super job. Really nice. This would look nice hanging on a wall. It is almost an abstract made of people.

      Good morning, this is a wonferful capture. I'm very intrigued with photography, I've been perusing Flickr a lot this past week looking for inspiring shots and ideas, I've come across yours (obviously because it's beautiful and very well done) and I want to learn an abundant amount of information so that I can decorate my home with framed pictures that I captured. Needless to say this picture of yours caught my eye, just showing you appreciation for your great work.
      Whenever you get some free time, could you check out my personal flickr page and review just a few photos of mine so that I get a better idea of what I'm doing right and wrong. I'm just starting out and I only have a handful of photos but I welcome your constructive feedback and any advice you can share with me, I just purchased a used DSLR a few days ago. Feel free to share any photos you have with me anytime likewise.


      Thanks and have a great day.

      Lovely photos! Too bad the powders can be so scary!

      Holi always looks like so much fun but I want to point out something few seem to consider:

      Think about all the unnecessary chemicals that are going into our ground, into our water and into our bodies! Come on people, WAKE UP!

      Dangerous chemicals and metals found in Holi paints include chromium, nickel, and cadmium. The red sometimes contains highly toxic mercuric sulfate. And ophthalmologists warn revelers to keep an eye out for green, which frequently is made of copper sulfate, which is capable of causing puffiness and even temporary blindness.

      Green: Copper sulphate - This could cause various types of eye irritations or even temporary blindness
      Purple: Chromium iodide - This chemical causes allergies and bronchial asthma
      Silver: Aluminum bromide - Aluminum bromide is Carcinogenic. Very dangerous…
      Black: Lead oxide - Renal Failure, Learning disabilities.
      Shiny colors: Powdered glass added to the colors
      Red: Mercury Sulphite - Skin cancer, Minamata disease (mental retardation, paralysis, impared vision...)

      Dry colors or "gulals" have two components -a colorant which is toxic and a base which could either be asbestos or silica, both of which are capable of causing health hazards. While silica may dry as well as chap the skin, asbestos which is a known human carcinogen gets built up in the body tissue.

      The major constituent of the colorants in gulals are mostly heavy metals that are known systemic toxins. These heavy metals not only get deposited in the kidneys, liver and bones but are also capable of disrupting the metabolic functions.

      Breathing these chemicals in, swallowing them, or getting them in your eyes can't be good for you.
