very nice dailylife, a littel too sharp on the man face,and also saturation, but good colors and contrasts.

I like the photograph exactly as it is Karthik. The colors are wonderful and the scene entrancing. This is real life as lived by these Tibetan refugees residing in India. Available light appears to be coming into the space from a window at the left, giving us the deep shadows at the right of the weaver's face. The rotation of the image adds energy, a sense of aliveness to the scene. Very nicely done.

I've been attracted to this picture before I saw it was your Karthik. Well done. I really like your DOF and the cropping you've done on this one. The horizontal lines being non-horizontal are also interesting. I like the fact that everything is dark except the fabric. The only thing I'm not fan of are white frames... :) Thanks for sharing !

I like the saturated color in this image. The tilt works well and helps make the image more dynamic. Very nice!

this is a beautiful image karthik
i can't think of any way to improve it, but i can think of another perspective that you could try . i don't know how it'll turn out though
if you use a wide angle lens, it will make the woman a smaller element in the photograph creating some distorted patterns in the threads which might look good since the threads will seem to converge at the woman. if the woman's physical presence is smaler in the composition, it will not necessarily diminish her overall presence. infact it might enhance that presence because her size relation with regard to the rest opf the work can be taken quite metaphorically. so in that sense you might get a perspective which is a little different from this one
ok i think i confused myself also

Excellent photo Karthik. Great POV, I love the green thread reaching out to us. The tilt works really well too. Fantastic look of absorption on her face.

Beautiful image! The perspective and the colours are great! The shirt the lady is wearing and the weaving string matches!! Were this the original colours? Maiko
