    I like the composition here, and the exceptionally striking colours.

    This photo was seen in the African, Caribbean, Asian Daily Life group

    Getting down on street level was really effective. I am fascinated by how close the subject seems, yet how much of the contextual background is still in the image.

    Seen in a discussion of !afterclass! Street Portraits. (?)

    This is wonderfull, and I miss a lot the possibility to crounch sometimes down to make a photo, but my knees sais no, to going up after that.

    But is is also a very interesting photo, and you get to know more and more about India and its varied people and bring us more near to us, thanks a lot!

    it is also a wonderfull lesson in color and composition for me!
