~ 'D H A K I' | The Drummer ~
'Dhak' is a traditional drum of Bengal, played in festivals, puja's etc... The drummer is called a 'dhaki'...
Got this man, in a shiva temple in my town, while playing his dhak...
Waiting from a distance for a side profile of him when he is playing his drum...
Here is he on your screen.
~ Enjoy it ~

expressive and above all very colorful portrait.
The framing and timíng are perfect.Also his facial expression is very meaningful-he seems to be so thoughtful and kind of absent.
I like also so colorful background.
Have a nice weekend

Enjoy your weekend - Brian.

There is a very well captured conte mplated look in the face of this drummer. A very fine portrait and I guess he would be proud of this picture, if he has the opportunity to see it. But the main attraction of this picture is indeed all the colours that you have included!

this is a fine composition, a very interesting portrait. You've captured an intriguing expression on your subject's face and his posture has allowed a lot of this bright yellow colour enter the frame. I like very much how he's placed between his drum and the colourful background. Each surrounding element is distinguished by its colour and there's a superb chromatic combination. The elegant silhouette of the lady who's facing the opposite direction in the background could be associated with the musician's expression and start a story:) Wonderful work, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

I do enjoy it!
I like the natural behaviour of the drummer, well framed, sharp against the colorfull blurred background. we can detail his face, he seems tired and the red dot on his forehead is attractive.

An excellent portrait. The lost-in-thought look of the Dhaki is a very well-timed capture.
I liked just impression of the temple in the background. Very compact photo with excellent colours and details.
With best wishes,

Curious face, interesting portrait.
Good frame, colors and depth.

Stunning color, there is so much to absorb in this shot. You've crafted another compelling human interest image, and the timing once again to capture just the right moment of regard. A very impressive composition which focuses on this gentlemen, but still offers a peek into the background. A splendid, spontaneous moment realized with clarity and detail. This is always so much more fascinating and telling than a posed portrait, and one that helps take us into the culture and daily life from behind the scenes. A meaning shot, this turned out extremely well. Have a great day ahead. Take care.

Un très bon portrait de ce joueur de tambour qui se détache bien sur ce bel arrière-plan coloré.

nice street portrait. Fine natural pose of drummer. Good colors and DOF. Well done photo.
Have a nice day.

Good use of a shallow dof to isolate and emphasise the man distinctly from his background. Excellent sharpness and wonderful colour and saturation, with great warm cold color contrasts between the yellow, red & blue. Excellent shadow detail on his face. Tfs!

Another great portrait of yours! You are so good at this style of photography. I really like the way you always capture something of the person in their look.

Very clear detailed capture of the drummer and his stuff, and the gorgeous combination of vivid colours so well illustrated from low pov which seems to accentuate the subject enormously. It's superbly composed this way in brilliant clarity lending to an impressive shot, Very well done, Congrats.
