We visted Darjeeling from Borong.
This is the famous Darjeeling Mall where one comes across a number of horsemen each persuading the tourists to hire their horses for a short ride.
I kept on looking at this horse as I was trying to think of a favourable position to take a decent snap. I thought a low angle maybe good. Possibly this made the horseman think that I was interested in his horse. He approached me with high hopes but I bet he was enormously surprised to find me crouching down on the ground and taking his picture instead.

the scene is very well covered from this lower POV. Like the atmosphere and colours. Nice composition with the horse rider with the pavilion at background. A bit problem with focusing but it is not a big issue. The mood here finely captured by you. Tfs.

This is a wonderful portrait of the hill town horsemen! I really like the low pov you used here - along with the excellent composition of the two horses at different depths. The sense of scale and presence is perfect in this photo - and even the overcast and blownout sky doesnt distract the viewer from the scene.
