Grande roue de ce pousse pousse que doit tiré avec force ce monsieur qui ce repose avant l'arrivée des touristes, un travail très difficile plus a pieds que le pousse pousse a vélo, belle image de vie quotidienne

tra turisti e modernità qualcosa della tradizione che rimane con l'anziano che aspetta turisti da trasportare.
Buono lo spaccato di vita di città che presenti,

i have really enjoyed your street series, and this may be the best one.
love the bright vivid blues, love the bubbles!
and its cool to see the advertisement for contrast in the bg.
a tightly fit collage composition that works well.
ikeharel (77301) 2012-09-27 3:03
Yet once more you place a fine picture describing life on the streets of Calcutta, with excelent POV you show the Rickshaw-man on the moment he saw you.
A photo well premeditated, vivid colors and nice scene on the street.

Now that this series if done, I look forward to seeing what is next. This is a nice ending to the series. It shows a great mix of modern and traditional. I like that there is a variety of colours, but no one colour dominates. Great series.
josepmarin (58359) 2012-09-28 2:33
this rickshaw puller seems to be tired after his hard work, and in this good and spontaneous photo with the busy atmosphere of the city, you offer us with all his details and his vital attitude.
The image is very rich graphically and has a few beautiful colors.
A good work.
tedesse (25135) 2012-09-28 3:18
Nice street shot!
Beautiful portrait of a rickshaw driver waiting for customers.
Super color and sharpness. Beautiful work.
Have a nice day
abmdsudi (57176) 2012-09-28 7:21
A typical street view and the famous much photograped rickshaw and wallah. Being the most important element his look, expression and mood really make this image
as strong focal. This picture captures great part of real life situation and it adds extra feeling to the shot. There are excellent colors too and overall contrast is great with strong flavour of local life. Well done, TFS.
eldancer1 (36343) 2012-09-28 9:09
You did a terrific job in documenting the daily life of the people of this famous city, so down to earth expose. Sometimes the subject matters more than technical quality of a photo, so don't apologize for some shortcoming. I like the pose of this gentleman, I hope he got more fares for the day. Good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.
clic (18268) 2012-09-28 9:49
This old puller must be in pretty good shape for hauling all day long the carriage!!
He composes with the rickshaw a paradoxal exotic view, compared to the modernity of showcases and tourists garments!
rychem (41684) 2012-09-28 10:33
Another interesting street scene in Calcutta, this time with a rickshaw, well seen, well done
kordinator (22105) 2012-09-28 12:48
Very interesting street scene.
Image full of nice colors.
jhm (158968) 2012-09-29 0:46
This really a wonderful daily life picture from Calcutta.
We see clear the different conditions between the man waiting to visitors and the other more modern people in background.
Nice depth and perspective, good light management.
Very well composition, well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,
pierrefonds (70497) 2012-09-29 5:22
The number of persons in the scene is showing that Calcutta is a very busy city. The point of view is showing the details and colors or of the rickshaw and the puller waiting for a customer. The light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
raszid62 (18515) 2012-09-29 6:34
Is working very hard rickshaw driver. but, well, somehow you need to earn money for bread for the family. In Poland, after the advent of wild capitalism, people or harm them in any job. We also rich people become more rich and the poor even poorer. Thank politicians and so-called. economists. Beautiful photography from the streets of Calcutta generic.
गुड आफ़्टरनून. क्या बहुत कठिन रिक्शा चालक काम कर रहा है. लेकिन, अच्छी तरह से, किसी भी तरह आप रोटी के लिए परिवार के लिए पैसे कमाने की जरूरत है. पोलैंड में, जंगली पूंजीवाद, लोगों को या उन्हें किसी भी काम में नुकसान के आगमन के बाद. हम भी अमीर लोगों को और अधिक अमीर हो abiedni भी गरीब. राजनेताओं Pozdiêkujmy और तथाकथित. अर्थशास्त्रियों. कलकत्ता सामान्य की सड़कों से सुंदर फोटोग्राफी. तुम्हारा.
sacavem (18620) 2012-09-29 7:39
Good work to capture this image. Amazing colours, good contrast and definition. Good daily life.
Sonata11 (33971) 2012-09-29 15:03
another interesting shot from daily life scene. Wonderfully captured and wonderfully executed image. Great colors, sharpness, clarity. Sad expression on this man face. Great photo. Like it. Thanks for sharing.
All the best and have a nice WE,
ourania (50583) 2012-09-30 9:55
a great combination of an interesting busy daily life scene with a portrait of a resting but alert rickshaw-wallah. The two come to a very intriguing juxtaposition that enhances our perception of both. Depth, perspective and lighting are excellent and serve your theme fine. The inclusion of many clear details in the frame makes the photo very rich and our experience of life in the streets of Calutta more comprehensive. The colours are natural and the bubbles add a touch of surrealism. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great week,
serp2000 (45572) 2012-09-30 20:12
My congratulations, I think, this is one of your the best photos from Calcutta. And one of my favorite works today here. TFS!
mirosu (16273) 2012-10-01 22:28
Your Calcutta photos were very nice, I enjoyed them very much. It remainded me to my several past trips to this large busy city.
I like this street photo with the rickshaw runner waiting for customers (not an easy job). I also like the well chosen DOF allowing to see the BG in detail. Well done.
Oceania (5202) 2012-10-02 7:38

Another nice daily photo from you! I think this photo represents real daily life. We can see people shopping, people trying to earn money, advertisements, colourful backgrounds. You captured eveything which tells the stroies of the street. Thanks for sharing

Good reportorial photo.
I like this daily life shot.
Nicely colors and light.
siolaw (38292) 2012-11-13 22:12
We can see two 'Indias' clashing here... the old India (rickshaw wallah) and the new India (ads on the wall and westernised clothing of the passer-byes...
thebest (4276) 2012-12-20 14:56
I really am enjoying looking at your daily life photo's in Calcutta - this is a very nice image of the man with his rickshaw waiting for customers - what I noticed is that someone was blowing bubbles which you have captured in the photo.
Great content & clarity.
fritzi007 (12124) 2012-12-28 22:57
Thanks for showing us the lively street scene of India.

Hello Farhat, beautiful carriage and a very traditional figure compose a daily life scene and a great image! Thanks for sharing!
Best wishes for the New Year!
Kielia (24077) 2013-01-23 8:19
you are presenting a very interesting daily life shot. The perspective is excellent. The light and the wonderfully contrasting colors that are characteristic of India create a fascinating mood. My compliments!
tomi1 (2218) 2013-08-13 15:32
Rickshaws are not seen here in Europe. The are seen in the lands so distant where the exotismo amazes me. In this case the man is the force traction while in other countries they are moved by bicycles or motorbikes. However I drive a car to move I avoid to ride bycicle where cars are passing by. Drivers may run us over. In some cases drivers may flee away and never be found. Criminals exist everywhere. (I invite you to my facebook page in case you want. Search me writing António Domingos). Warm regards. Domingos
