With the absence of fridges and the abundance of fresh foods, the morning market thrives each and every day. Close your eyes and take in the smell of the spices permeating the air, the fruit, the vegetables and the oils and ointments, not to mention the rotting foodstuffs piled high awaiting collection, the scrawny caged chickens waiting to be sold, the smell of burning - be it either metal welding or rubbish, the sewerage and dirt, animal excrement, cooked meat, and pollution.

A very good portrait of this handsome fellow with his birds for the market - presumably a vendor, with that quantity! There's so much detail in this shot, and so well presented, without any hint of succumbing to the temptation to saturate colour too much. Combining the photo with your note one really does get a great sense of the atmosphere.

This is a very good photo with well handled light and pleasantly mild colours. I just get a slight stomach-ache when I see the poor birds. I presume they are alive. You managed to place the man in front of an incredible array of details - in the baskets, on the ground, in the windows and on the walls.

An interesting colour palette of grey and brown interspersed with the bright splashes of colour of the market produce. A nice presentation of daily life - one does get a good sense of the atmosphere from your picture.

I'm glad you're back with your posts from Bangladesh! Everything seems so authentic here. Asian markests are so full of life and also fresh food. This is a good portrait of the man carrying the chicken and that background is just fabulous - the old windows, the baskets full of vegetables. So much to see here... A good quality shot with good light management.
