~ A Moment With Colours @ Holi ~
Holi is a festival of colours. Those colours have the power to bring happiness in mind...
Experimenting high shutter speed in this occation I tried to freez the moment with the little girl at back... Those yellow powders in air are called 'gulal' or 'aabir'...

Very nice picture. The flying particles of Yellow gulal is creating very good effect on the pic.
Your imagination is superb !!!! Full marks.

Excellente photo de ce Holi qui offre toujours de beaux moments colorés. Bel effet créé par cette poudre jaune soufflée par la fillette.

assume you have a yellow dusted camera now! As I mentioned to Subho this festival has always fascinated me and this amazing shot sums it up so perfectly. Wonderful!

A great and unusual portrait of a kind, where colours and attitude are more important than the face and character. A very cheerful photo.

J'aime vraiment beaucoup cette composition.Tu as su déclencher juste au bon moment car l'air est complètement rempli de cette poudre verte et jaune pour presque cacher le joli minois de la jeune fille.

I saw today also a picture with a lot colours through the body painting out of your country.
Sharpness and clarity are pleasant to look at.
Excellent composition, nice presentation too..

This is an experimental shot with excellent outcome.
The colours are the theme and the little girl the means of achieving the colours.
The saying about an optimist is - 'He sees the world through rose coloured glasses.'
You will now see the world through a golden coloured lens!!
I think this is excellent, Subhendu, well done!
Have a lovely day,

stunning portrait of the girl. The yellow powder blown around her face makes this picture stand out from the crowd and also adds more color to the scene. Pretty framing and perfect focus.
Thanks for sharing

Hello Subhendu - This is a fabulous shot taken at a festival I would love to see with my own eyes. There is such a feeling of exuberance as the girl blows on the yellow pigment and it is carried through the air.
I note you were quite a distance from the yellow powder.... I hope you land remained powder free!
Top DL shot!

nice idea nice shot the right timing
I liked the explanation of your useful
notes that Holi is a festival of colors
jcpix (11670) 2014-03-18 16:55
Would it be too obvious to say this is full of color? :) I found myself leaning back when I opened the picture, thinking I might be sprayed with the powder. What a fantastic shot, the timing to capture this blown out display is captivating, you've really brought us into the moment. Perhaps it's the bright color, or the suggestion from your note, but there certainly is a feeling of jubilation and enthusiasm. "Enjoy The Moment," indeed! Love it! Have a great day ahead. All the best.

Great vibrant capture and love the atmosphere!! The festival of colours brings in an ardor for peace,love, happiness and unity. Timely short precisely at 1/2000 sec sp well frozen filled with joyous expression and sharp in focus where it counts, when the exposure is so well managed pleasantly with lovely soft diffuse bg. The vivid yellow draws attention immediately even in the thumbnail!! Great shot keep it up. My compliments

Bravo et amitié
ourania (27174) 2014-03-19 9:06
you managed to command the shutter speed perfectly and captured the scene in a very effective and fascinating way. I like very much how the bits and dust of the paint fly away from the little girl and how she is seen through the yellow, transparent cloud. Her dress and the backdrop provide wonderful contrast, warm and cold tones blend delightfully. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Wonderful effect of "abir", and good DF.

Namaste, my friend Subhendu,
you've played skillfully with the shutter speed in this capture, reaching a fantastic dynamic and chromatic effect of this little girl and her yellow powders in the air.
The image is powerful and the composition is very attractive.
An excellent work.
