~ F L A S H B A C K | Old Sweet Memories ~
After a long long time they met each other...
Some sweet memories of them being alive...
They are in their own, forgetting everything surrounding them.
Got these elderly person in the Eid-gah maidan (where they used to come for prayer of auspicious Eid).
Added some grains with those elements surrounding them...
~ Enjoy Sweet Memories With Them ~

Bonjour, cher Subhendu,
Une rencontre bien agréable à regarder. Le choix du noir et blanc est parfait pour restituer l'ambiance et les retrouvailles.
Très bonne journée.

Excellent selective focusing on the duo. The grains help to create the old times mood which you talk about in your note. Thanks for sharing a good photo.

A fine portrait of these two elderly gentlemen catching up on lost time. Black and white suits the mood perfectly. A very well presented composition with an excellent tonal range and very good sharpness.

Amitiés et bonne journée.

a tender and wonderful study this. Love the B&W presentation, it brings out the character and intensity of this image superbly. Excellent work!

You spotted these two old friends at a fine moment. Their closeness is clearly seen. I like that you managed to pick them out in the crowd and that we can see the proceedings of the other men while these two seem to have a quiet exchange.

On aimerait presque pouvoir se mêler à la conversation. Cela semble très intéressant. Une chose à remarquer, c'est que cela se passe entre hommes seulement. Un beau noir et blanc.

The main attraction of this photo to me is the man talking with closed eyes,it declares that he was saying some thing from heart and the man left at him listening his words very carefully.
The color tone is something different obviously. Nice execution.
Thanks for Sharing.

Very intimate moment captured with elegance. The focus, composition and light management... fantastic. And decision of presenting this in greys, is very wise.
Great shot and excellent presentation.

I was going to comment on the noise visible on the white clothing; then I saw that you had added it deliberately! By the way, when did you start adding watermarks to your work? Is that really necessary? I seem to be whinging. Actually I like it a lot. You know I'm a sucker for monochrome, and street photography, so this is a real treat. The offset main subject works well too.

the scene described in your note comes through very clearly through this simple, spontaneous and effective picture. The monochrome is substantial and pleasant and I like how you made the two gentlemen, their attitude and relationship stand out through your composition, lighting and slight blurring of the surroundings. The intimacy and tranquility of the scene are superb. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Hello Subhendu - A fine portrait and an excellent choice for converting to B&W. I like the way you have composed this, focusing on the two faces but including enough peripheral detail to set the scene. I love the grain here and the slightly warm tone. Warm regards Rosemary

j'aime le choix des personnages, leur expression ainsi que le cadrage. Le choix du N&B est également judicieux, il rend la photo intemporelle et mets particulièrement en valeur les visages.
I like the choice of characters, their expression and framing. The choice of B & B is also a good idea, it makes picture timeless and faces beautifull.

Tu as isolé de belle façon les deux protagonistes de cette belle photo. Beau travail de PP sur ce noir et blanc.

a real slice of life, well focused and enhanced by the b&W post treatment to focus on the 2 chatting men!

I love the mood of the picture ! B&W and the piece of grain nicely underline the moment and provide more intensity to your shot. I don't understand why you add a second copyight in your picture, the first one in the bottom is largely sufficient. The one in the middle of the picture ruins your work !
