reminds me of Indir Thakrun of Pather Panchali! The harsh green colour of the icecream makes a striking contrast with her rugged ebony skin. The icecream symbolizes the luxurious India, a fad of the rich; and this character represents the poverty stricken basic India. The two colours cannot balance each other, since it's impossible to dream of such a harmony. Hence, the harsh contrast! Awesome, man!

hey but that's a great piece of photography much in the fashion of Henri Cartier Bresson known for the sarcastic tone in his photographs! The window on the right adds the much needed breather and a pattern to this character/information dominated shot.

the collection of boats in the foreground and the little boat yonder at the horizon makes this photograph an interesting study in depth of field. But one friendly advice to you: leave the photograph alone. Don't tamper with it much in Photoshop unless really required. In this case, given the exposure you have mentioned, did we really need Photoshop? only to make it better, i guess![+]
