In this shot you get to see a schoolboy performing the job of a Band Master during the Independence Day Parade 2012 in Darjeeling.He is all dressed up in the Ceremonial Uniform with the Band Master staff in his hand.
My friends may have become a little bored with my series of photographs.So this time around I am choosing individual photographs for a few weeks.Enjoy and keep commenting.

Hello Farhat - interesting capture of this band master, caught in mid stride with good action. This is one that perhaps might be better suited to color, as the ground behind him is somewhat overexposed in monochrome but restoring color might help with that. Still, a nice and evocative image - thanks for sharing it!

Excellent realization of this band master, you've picked a good time, dialing the fast pace, which adds a touch of rhythm to the picture, good choice of B&W. in this case.
Very good sharpness and brightness.
Have a nice day.
danos (74020) 2013-01-16 9:38
nice the view of the passing by man in front of your lens.The B/W photo make it looks like as a postcard.
josepmarin (55051) 2013-01-16 10:24
this one is an interesting composition centred on the only personage.
In this case one young Band Master caught in an explicit framing, with a B&W treatment that provides a solemn atmosphere and lightly dramatic, and which gives a great result for the composition.

Hello Farhat, a very elegant, proud and disciplined band Master, a little prince greatly showing in your picture with his immaculate appearance and his proud stance and walk! Great capture of his face and eye expression!

Being one of your friends, (you wrote about your friends), I'm convinced no one got bored of your elaborate explanations under every pictures you posted!
In this case, good will prevails as the young "soldier" shows the best of what he learned for a great show that you captured artistically in black!
I'll be always there for you eventhough I'm renouned for not running after points!
See you soon!

प्रिय नमस्ते फरहत
जीवन अच्छा है और आप के लिए अच्छा है एक वृत्तचित्र चित्र. लेकिन तस्वीर एक आयामी और तटस्थ है.

simple shot in sepia
your useful notes helped me
to understand this capture
ikeharel (37356) 2013-01-17 8:01
A precise shot on the right moment, Farhat.
This is full of dynamism, motion on picture space, and an innocent face expression / yet a serios one, of the little master.
Nicou (97727) 2013-01-17 10:14
quel captage de ce personnage superbe vue et ocmpo en mouvement et son beau costume superbe compo et image.
Bravo et amitié
ourania (12397) 2013-01-17 11:15
the way you've framed the picture and the b&w treatment are well considered and effective. You direct our attention to the brisk and elegant movement which you have captured with marvellous sharpness and timing. I think that the placement of the band master on the right part of the frame accentuates his figure and the force of his stride. The even backdrop sets him off superbly. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
lousat (57674) 2013-01-17 13:35
HI Farhat,very interesting capture and very nice black and white version,looks real like a pic of 1930,magnificent idea and great result,i like it!Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Hi,a great observation well done.A uniform seems to always have an elevating effect.I find your series highly interesting.All the best,Wolf.

This is a very good portrait of the "little band master". You captured him very well, as he seems to take his role very seriously, and his marching gait is excellent.
Interesting B&W conversion, although I think Indian colours are always so cheerful, it´s a pity to miss them :-) Maybe a colour version would be useful in WS.
Also, I would have done a tighter crop around the boy, the large space around him being unnecessary, in my opinion.
An appealing post all in all.
mirosu (5533) 2013-01-18 2:40
An excellent B&W photo. Smart choice of horizontal frame to accentuate the young man with good sharpness. Excellent photo with nice light contrast and very good POV choice. Well chosen shallower DOF separating the man nicely from BG.
Didi (48930) 2013-01-18 4:15
Interesting scene but I suggest you to crop the empty parts.
berek (31921) 2013-01-18 7:01
i like this b&W portrait. very good composition and idea.
have a nce weekend.
Fis2 (73114) 2013-01-19 1:45
I like frame.
The black and white increase this emotion.
siolaw (37568) 2013-01-20 1:30
An interesting subject and a suitable B&W conversion. I may have kept more space in front of him rather than behind him!
shevchenko (18243) 2013-01-22 1:38
Good capture to a student that concentrate with his performance, clear to show his costume and the instrument in his hand, nice lively shot from the ceremony, interesting composition, good shoot.
Oceania (2143) 2013-01-23 5:49
The uniform the boy wearing was very nice. This is a great way we learn India's tradition from your picture.
SnapRJW (18752) 2013-01-26 1:24
Hi Farhat - I love this captured moment, the small bandmaster is stepping out so purposefully with his long stride and determined expression. He reminds me of a little tin soldier! Perfect in B&W. Delightful. Warm regards Rosemary
gildasjan (38220) 2013-01-26 6:46
Ce jeune garçon dans son costume de parade semble très sérieux.Bonne prise du mouvement.
s_lush (15590) 2013-01-27 10:11
This is a very good portraiture full of dynamism and interesting details. Excellent presentation of Darjeeling's daily life!
maria-v1981 (10403) 2013-01-28 4:17
A lovely poze of the boy. The innocence and how carefree looks spanning the screen. Good choise of B&W.
Have a nice Monday,
delpeoples (44960) 2013-01-29 3:15
namaskar dear Farhat
I hope you had a happy Independence Day. We celebrate Australia Day on the same date, the 26 January. Excellent reportage shot and good choice with the B&W. Thanks for sharing the festivities with us and I wish you a happy day
jemaflor (68943) 2013-01-29 10:59
Good timing, taken at the perfect moment, interesting idea with this b&w version.
Robert1969 (6238) 2013-02-08 6:39
Interesting capture of this band master.
Composition and light management are
good and the B&W makes the picture
some kind of timeless.
pierrefonds (48353) 2013-02-09 5:12
The point of view is showing the details of the uniform of the Ban Master. An extra shot of sharpening would help to see the details. I am wondering how it would be in colors ? Have a nice day.
rychem (9227) 2013-02-09 8:52
You have caught a very nice pose of this boy, very dynamic photo, well spotted and executed
lpi (4424) 2013-02-10 15:30
un très beau cliché en noir & blanc,j'aime son joli costume de parade de ce jeune homme.
raszid62 (18204) 2013-02-11 1:42
This little boy, probably with pride and dignity led the orchestra during the parade. Great reportage photography in excellent quality.
गुड आफ़्टरनून. गर्व और सम्मान के साथ शायद यह छोटा लड़का है, परेड के दौरान ऑर्केस्ट्रा का नेतृत्व किया. उत्कृष्ट गुणवत्ता में महान रिपोर्ताज फोटोग्राफी. तुम्हारा.
Vague (301) 2013-02-11 6:21
Hello dear Farhat!
The cadre is very good and the contrast ideal! But what makes this photograph unique is the expression of the boy! Both his face expression and his movement somehow are very eloquent in giving away his moods!
Bravo. Keep up the good (photographic) works!
