Two For The Road : This is the first time I am trying my hands on collage inspired by my friend Pavle (Pajaran),who has a penchant for collage making.In this image you can see a couple of tri-wheeler van riders,the first one is riding his vehicle without any load and the second one is loaded.This is a common sight on the roads of Calcutta especially in the market area of Burra-Bazaar,where goods are being taken mainly from warehouses to retail shops.
I dedicate this image to Pavle Randjelovic from Cuprija,Serbia.

Good compilation of the street photos from Calcutta. I am surprised but I did not saw the rickshaws in Goa or Mumbai... But I do remember tuk-tuks everywhere.
Anyway, good contribution to the transportation theme.

une bonne composition avec ces deux prises de vue juxtaposées.
Un moyen de transport original, c'est bien vu!

Drago mi je da sam vam dao ideju, hvala na posvecenoj lepoj fotografiji.
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazane trokolice sa vozacima.
Dobar rad, lepo uhvacen trenutak, lepe boje.
Ljudi se snalaze i zaradjuju za zivot, torkolica je deo jednog naroda i obicaja.
Imajte lep i uspesan dan, sve najbolje.

I must admit, personally, I like to see just one photograph in a post, with the second as a w/s. It is difficult to critique two shots for your critique will not apply to both shots.
The l/h shot is well composed with fine details of this very environmentally-friendly, type of transport. We have good leads and I can't help feeling that the figure in the b/g desperately needs the services of the cyclist!
Have a good day,

A simple daily life pic of Indian roads. Poor ricksaw pullers have to work hard to earn for their family.

Collage are always interesting, certainly the different of the two bicycles.
Excellent city picture with these buildings and green as subject.
Very well done. TFS.
Have a nice Pentecost weekend,

On dirait que c'est le changement de la garde. Un vieux pour un jeune pour faire le même travail difficile dans le trafic et la pollution. Un très beau diptyque.
ikeharel (65281) 2014-06-06 6:48
Nicely combined the two photos, taken on the same subject.
Both are well in sharpness, inspite the moving objects. Street view might had been a bit wider, yet - not a grand issue.
Have a nice weekend,

very interesting compilation of the two photos so similar yet different. Even the shirt color is different but goes well together.
Very well done!
Nicou (133550) 2014-06-06 8:05
superbe double iamge de ces deux homme avec leur vélo et la remorque à l'arrière cela ne doit pas être facile tous les jours de pédaler quelles scènes.
Bravo et amitié

Very good collage of cycle rickshaw Fabbs, natural hues,neat picture, regards
rychem (30421) 2014-06-06 9:09
Nice idea to show a double scene with two rickshaw drivers at the same place. It shows how often we can see this means of transport in India. Very well caught
cornejo (37761) 2014-06-06 11:17
Hi Farhat, very good pictures in this interesting composition with the typical image of the big city, very well captured in this interesting image with good framing, good sharpness, light, color and quality. Excellent job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.
Good morning and happy weekend.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.
SWEETFREEDOM (24124) 2014-06-06 11:31
nice comparison of picures. good full body portrait and colors.
PaulVDV (25645) 2014-06-06 11:33
A very tough job in climatically not the easiest conditions. The expansion of the car fleet in Indian cities also seems to be a fact and very important to take into account for these vulnerable road users.
Interesting daily life-shots from Calcutta.
Best regards, Paul

Nicely done collage, these two imges fit together very comfortably, and look very well presented like this. Its a fascinating vehicle, not one I see in my daily life. I can understand its popularity too, it looks like an excellent tool for work. Both under perfect light to illuminate your subjects perfectly!
Silvio1953 (133898) 2014-06-06 13:55
Ciao Darhat, nice double Street scene, in each photo excellent clarity, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio
ourania (39026) 2014-06-06 14:03
both portraits in action are interesting and you combined them nicely. Both pictures are deep and clear and include a detailed description of the street behind the riders. You have made the impact of your collage even stronger by opting for the exactly the same angle of capture. Also it's intriguing to see that the two colleagues have distinctive personal styles but exactly the same expression. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,
Gigidusud (18797) 2014-06-06 14:41
Great collage of the typical scene from Calcutta. Splendid portrait of the couple of tri-wheeler van riders. I like a lot!
Have a nice Week-end.
mohammad_H (9804) 2014-06-06 22:38
Transportation for passengers and cargo, usually in East Asia, the bike can be seen
I wish instead of cars, bikes were popular
Beautiful life in India
mirosu (15878) 2014-06-06 23:56
I like this collage showing two different riders, one with full load other with empty cargo, may be looking for customers. Both in excellent light and superb clarity.
Your photos remind me to my next trip to your par of the world, this time with my Chennai friends to Nepal in October.
Very well done.
photoray (13725) 2014-06-07 6:35
Interesting double tri cycles with trim pedalists navigating Calcutta's busy streets.
We have an innovative auto manufacturer who has created a three wheel and three cylinder auto the Elio which will be sold next year with an 80 miles per galloon rating. Ironically it will be built in the defunct Hummer factory.
Thanks for sharing,

Interesting "duo" from street.
I like frame and colors.
Good reportage photo from daily life.
eldancer1 (33971) 2014-06-07 10:04
Nice collage of those two and it's really sad that in the 21st century there are so many poor people trying to eke a living. Nicely captured with good details. Well done, tfs.
resat1972 (7492) 2014-06-07 10:16
The new form of transportation :)
nice work in terms of document
beautiful composition and framing
jacquest (18919) 2014-06-07 12:40
A nice collage of two street scenes and figures. The good light enhances the colors and gives very good sharpness to details.
dip (23888) 2014-06-07 13:05
I like your collage photo,indeed interesting details,
jcpix (13846) 2014-06-07 16:41
A nice dedication to Pavle and his tradition of collages. This is a fun side-by-side comparison of the two bikers, and a clever title to match. :) Great to see an every day aspect of the local customs and culture. I only see similar scenes around ballparks that shuttle fans to/from their parked cars!? Love seeing the different side of life in a place far away from my own. Sharp, bright and very pleasantly presented. Enjoy the new day. Take good care.
batalay (37451) 2014-06-09 1:20
It's a very successful collage. Judging by the blue sign in the background, I see that you've moved about about 20 m, but scaled the tricycle vans to be about the same. The precise angles of the wheels and the stern expressions of the drivers reveals the similarities. I too tried a collage, same scene but different times of the day in a shot in Stockholm.
Oceania (5202) 2014-06-09 7:21
Two images of different man on tri-wheeler van in one pictures, good idea. I can tell from this picture, they are working very hard.
omid266 (6700) 2014-06-09 21:30
Dear my friend,
Very nice mixed picture,from another your nice works about daily life in India,
very nice made, well done and Thanks!
adramad (42075) 2014-06-12 7:42
Fantastic mix, these two images of bike-transport, good contrast one empty and the other with his burden, beautiful scenes of daily life in the city.
Very good lighting and sharpness.
Have a good day.
dale54 (6852) 2014-06-12 11:39
farhat hello..i like what you've come up with here,great people shot and color. tfs! dale
danos (92682) 2014-06-12 23:50
nice the view as the presentation of the two cyclists with their trasportation carriages to be the main characteristic of the two of them.A good reportage shot from the roads of Calcutta.
Regards,from Danos and not from Paja.
nikkitta (17066) 2014-06-18 16:12
Comparing photos and men sharing same vehicle both in full action with the busy street at the back
Visiting India always took the tuc tuc to move in a quick way, driver are really good and kind
macjake (63250) 2014-06-23 21:47
I would travel to India for photos and scenes just like these, we don't have anything like this here in Canada.
Its fun to view the bg too, we can see some modern cars and a mix of older cars from decades ago
mcmtanyel (18175) 2014-06-25 13:02
A very nice collage of these nonmotorized vans. It is interesting that the ones I used to see in Turkey were the opposite, the two wheeled cargo compartment was in the front and the rear wheel was single. The whole cargo compartment turned to steer the contraption.
Cricri (113701) 2014-06-27 3:16
Un très bel assemblage de plus similaire de cette scène de vie quotidienne merveilleusement présenter
taypejka (1689) 2015-02-21 5:14
Interesting contrast of two riksha drivers, one sitting and without any load and the second overloaded and therefore standing to drive more efficiently. Not easy job, at all.
I think this collage technique is useful when we want e.g. to make comparisons, show differences.
