Hi Farhat, An interesting street scene with the inclusion of the beautifully decorated carriage. The bargaining going on created a good atmosphere and a good story for this shot. Exposure can be a bit tricky when there is a lot of white around. I like how the people in this shot brought out the essence of life here. Best Regards.

Hi Yitzhak, A brilliant shot indeed!! The streaks of sunlight made visible by the smoke and steam in the room brought out the perfect atmosphere here. The woman in the process of making the noodle and the items around the room tell a good story but I admired you quick response to make this capture possible.A very lovely shot!! Best Regards.

Hi Carlo, From The number of shots that you took on reflections, i like this best. I also noticed from all your shots that you have a good eye for shapes and colours and your ability to isolate portions with interesting composition from your surroundings. I enjoyed the visual stimulation from this shot as it is musical to the eyes. Thanks for letting me see and feel this lovely scene. Best Regards.

Hi John, The fun thing about photography is digging into your past albums and the thrill of finding a gem. Indeed this shot is a gem and with proper handling the joy that you have entertained and touched the hearts of so many. I love the overall scene and the crowd animate the whole atmosphere. I also like how the tree to the far left and its reflection prevented our eyes from wandering out of the frame. Congratulations!! Brilliant piece of work. Best Regards.

Hi Farhat, You have chosen the right format for this shot. I like the strong contrast between the school buildings and the snow capped mountains and how the outline of the buildings and trees mimic that of the mountains in the background. It certainly make this institution stands out among the rest literally. Lovely shot!! Regards.

Hi Angshuman, Indeed you are luckier with a more cooperative weather and a lovely sky when you are there. The hazard facing Trekkers is that you are at the mercy of nature as time is definitely not on your side. Lovely shot and a great reminder of the time I was there. Best Regards.

Hi John, This is refreshing, side-tracking from your usual scenes. I love the clarity and the feat of shooting at 1/25 handheld. You managed to project the grandeur of this room through a well placed pov, good lighting angle and capturing all the intricate shapes and design. Great shot!! Best regards and a great weekend.
