Traffic Chaos : This is another Iphone-4S image from Central Calcutta depicting a state of traffic chaos in the middle of an important intersection.The vehicles as well as pedestrians are going haywire and not following any road traffic system to make way for each other.The road space in Calcutta is substantially less leading to situations where such chaos becomes common.Calcutta being a cosmopolitan city, you may notice an elderly chinese couple sitting on the hand-pulled rickshaw.

Une très belle scène de la vie quotidienne dans la ville de Calcutta. Le chaos habituel bien mis en scène dans cette photo noir et blanc qui donne un petit côté documentaire à l'ensemble.

Excelent Iphone picture, farhat, amazingly sharp details collected.
The street view might be more vivid in the colors version, to my humble opinion, and not a sever chaos...

a very interesting photo of daily traffic in Calcutta. The clarity you've achieved is superb, the monochrome treatment is very effective and there's a fascinating 3D effect on the moving people and vehicles. There are important daily life details in the background as well. I like very much the sense of depth and the empty foreground. Your composition is excellent and the scene looks chaotic and neat at the same time. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

Yes, this describe traffic situation in most countries. The last time I visited the Philippines the traffic situation was worse but what amazed me was the absence of traffic accident, hardly any. Nice capture with good details. Well done, tfs.

Beautiful composition with perfect sharpness and great monochrome treatment.
Typical Kolkata street displayed with excellent framing and exposure.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice evening.

you could post these street scenes from Calcutta every day and i would never get bored of them.
in this one, its funny how the white car acts as the focal point as it stands out brightly.
its fun to see the different cars, different modes of transportation everywhere.

I think traffic chaos in Calcutta could look a lot worse, but nevertheless this is a good photo from this fascinating city of yours. What I find most fascinating of all is that very little here indicates that this was taken in 2014. It might as well have been from the 70's, or even earlier. And it's not just the B&W that makes it look timeless, or old. I only see the same kind of vehicles that have been around for decades. Maybe 40 years ago more men would have bean wearing dhotis in stead of trousers.

Nice view from Central Calcutta , excellent daily live scene in b&w.
Perfect exposure and very well composed and captured this beautiful image. Superb detailed photo

Of course, your work for a black depiction suits well to the feelings of those bad-tempered drivers!
Stunning view, compared to the more modern building and signs of backdrop!

An excellent picture of life in the city, in this case with the chaotic traffic, it seems that everyone is going in one direction, cars ... people ... the image in B & W gives a timeless look to composiicon.
A bright image with optimum clarity.
Good job. I like it
Enjoy a good weekend.

Interesting reportage shot from street.
Good frame and composition.
I like this daily life shot.
jcpix (13930) 2014-07-11 12:42
I suppose as long as no one is seriously injured, this could simply be considered as controlled chaos, yeah? ") Amazing to think that there isn't a constant flow of problems in a situation like this...I guess you just have to keep your wits about you at all times! A great depiction of the frenzied atmosphere and non-stop action, and the black & white format adds a nice touch to the entire vibe. Just another day on the streets, right? :) Have a great weekend. Take care.

A true scene of life in a big city, it is really surprising how people cope in such a large mass, very well caught
williewhistler (16398) 2014-07-12 2:15
the hustle and bustle at the busy intersection is beautifully portrayed with the mono effect giving the image a timeless look,very appealing.
photoray (13981) 2014-07-12 6:57
Interesting monochrome scene, autos, pedestrians, carts all crossing the intersection in orderly chaos. Probably slow enough to avoid collisions as long as there is sharing?
Thanks for sharing,

interesting photographs of everyday life. similar traffic and disgrace in istanbul. beautiful composition.

I like POV of this daily life scene and traffic wonderfully executed. It is not easy to driving? Fantastic management of sharpness, clarity,lighting and I like B&W color for this image. Beautiful work. I like it.
Best regards and have a great WE, Barbara

In my opinion, it is a little chaos. Very heavy traffic can be seen in Delhi. Delhi has more than vehicles compared to total vehicle in other 3 metros i.e. Calcutta, Mumbai and Chennai.
Well composied pic in B&W.
mirosu (16273) 2014-07-14 7:36
This photo makes me smiling, bringing me back to Indian town daily life.
You have captured this street scene from excellent perspective. Monochrome conversion works very well here. The light and clarity is superb.
Very well done.
p.s. thanks for your comment, so far I'm doing well, only the weather is not very friendly with me.
After 3 months I shall be much closer to your place.
Miguel82 (27646) 2014-07-14 8:04
Different ways of transportation are on the frame Fabbs, an ambassador, camionette to carry goods and a rickshaw, regards

Yes, the traffic is chaotic alright, but I am enjoying every single vehicle in the photo - TFS!

This is a beautiful shot of daily life and a good selection of black and white. Very well done. Thanks for submitting this picture
serp2000 (44598) 2014-08-29 5:50
Ha! I have see some empty space on the road. It's not so big chaos. I do remember the early morning in Mumbai... oh , it was really problem situation for everyone. Anyway, excellent black & white shot!
Have a great WE!
annjackman (21899) 2014-08-30 4:10
I have just come across this wonderful b/w picture of yours. I love the old-fashioned elements in the scene. A lively representation of life in Calcutta that has been very well taken.
Kind Regards, Ann
