~ D R E A M | Those Magic Dots ~
I am in dilemma, which one should be the title of this one. And at last I am going with both...
Photo captured in Holi, which is a festival of colours. Those colours have the power to bring happiness in mind...
One more shot with high shutter speed...
~ Enjoy It ~

Superb photo in excellent light. The girl's hair color and details are perfect. The girl head is excellently separated from well blurred background.
Very well done
Wish you a nice weekend.

Another fine portrait in this beautifully presented series. Here, I specially like the colours and highlights in the girl's hair. Superb control over depth of field to lift her from wast must be a busy background.

Enjoy the weekend - B.

Hello Subhendu - Another wonderful shot from the festival.
Interestingly, we went for an Indian meal last night at Windhoek's only Indian restaurant. There we met a young couple and their small daughter who are here for a short time (the husband is doing some work for a local bank... software). They come from Rajasthan and we spent quite a long time chatting about travel in India and their area in particular. They showed us photographs of their Holi celebrations here in Windhoek and the small girl looked so cute covered in colourful pigments.
This girl is older than theirs but the shot shows the wonderful talent you have for bringing a new dimension to a festival I would love to see. Top class work and a shot that I shall not easily forget!

I have always wanted to attent the Holi festival for the experience.
Perhaps one day in the future :)
Is this festival only in one city, or is it on in most cities throughout the Country at this time??
love the dots, love the colors, love the way you photographed her.

Probablement la suite d'une des photos postées cette semaine. Maintenant , la jeune fille a les cheveux aussi vert que la poudre qu'elle souffle dans les airs. J'aime le choix de la profondeur de champs.

Superb moment! You have captured the right second, amazing result!

after the yellow paint, the little girl has added some lovely blue and now is blowing two bright colours on herself and the world around her. This is another fine image, I like very much that we can see her face and eyes through the colourful cloud. Her hands and the colours are wonderfully illuminated too. She stands out superbly against the background and I like how the yellow paint has settled, creating patterns on her shiny hair. Excellent work,
congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

Wow! What a fantastic shot! Absolutely unique and beautifully taken scene with a perfect quality. Bravo!
yquem46 (38750) 2014-03-22 8:38
An excellent one and a very original idea
Considering the nature of the shot maybe I'd have personally chosen a centered compo. But strictly a personal opinion
Best regards, have a nice WE

This portrait is complementary to the preceiding yellow one
In Photography complementary colour Cyan + Yellow gives Green the primary colour

I can understand this is set up but then even great movies are also set up. Excellent work! Great idea, innovation and execution. My compliments. I like it a lot, more beautiful than your previous shot of this little girl.

this is a fabulous image.It captures all the colour and magic of the festival in the face and hands of the girl. Nice dof and excellent sharpness.

Another magnificent pic from your library. You have posted quite a similar pic recently. I like the colours of Holi captured by you. Very creative image.
Thanks for sharing.

a lovely portrait with spectacular details, a superb photo work from this festival,

Cette version bleutée est tout aussi réussie que la version jaune précédente. Bonne photo dynamique de cette manifestation.

I would go with those magic dots,excellent capture of the little girl making her Holi wish
jcpix (13846) 2014-03-23 8:40
You must have had a great time trying to capture these shots, each one so full of color and action. Looks as if this young gal might have found a new hair color. :) Another great illustration with the shallow depth of field being most effective to create strong focus on the details and action. Like a frozen moment from a movie scene, I'm expecting the powder to fall at any second now. Nice soft light and detail in this compressed view, another great result! Enjoy the rest of your evening. Take care.
abmdsudi (48705) 2014-03-23 15:28
This is a well-caught moment in what looks to be a lively spectacle while she is too engrossed in the process. You've used a combination of shutter speed and aperture that freezes the movement, which is good: everything is clear, but we can see that there is rapid movement happening! Great ambiance and vibrant colours, Well done.
danos (92502) 2014-03-24 1:30
very nice the snapshot from this festiveal of colours.I like the way that the little girl play as blow the colours from her hand.Excellent the timing as the presentation of the scene.
Cricri (113549) 2014-03-24 12:32
Elle est très jolie cette scène, c'est un peu comme dans un rêve, le flou en arrière plan et l'enfant soufflant sur les couleurs, donnant un effet de brume et perle, vraiment une jolie fête de votre pays
nikkitta (17064) 2014-03-25 15:45
I am also in a dilema, which one of your Holi photos likes me the more?
Answer is both, diferents colors, taken at the right time, dust and dots at the air
Good to blur the back to create more contrast
Very well done, enjoy watching
RhodieIke (11744) 2014-03-26 0:57
Of the two I like this one best as the two colours are super and the droplets superb,
Well managed, Tfs,
kwekwekan (1078) 2014-03-28 8:23
A magical photo indeed! The timing, shutter speed, aperture setting, composition are all spot on. One gets an excellent sense of the joyous atmosphere and colours of the Holi festival.
Thanks for sharing,

Very well taken , the bubbles in front of the face with multi colour makes the drama.
Very good shot.

I missed commenting on this picture...am really sorry!
This along with the earlier picture, would, for me, qualify as your best pictures, as I see in TE gallery.
Darun...excellent idea and implementation of the idea. This is simply saying - 'alluring'
