The Crowd : Earlier I had shared some photographs of the Independence Day celebration at Darjeeling on 15th August,2012.In this shot you can see the huge crowd which had turned up to see the colorful pageants.I thought of sharing this image with the view to put on display the large number of people in a single frame.Hope you like it.

Lots to see here with all these people waiting in anticipation. The umbrellas dotted about add further interest and make good focal points. Very good colours and sharpness.

Good framing with the railing in FG. Lot of interesting colors and postures can be seen when magnified. Well seen and well taken.

Beau panorama et beaucoup de monde à la fête de l'Indépendance même si le soleil n'était pas là à voir les parapluies. Une photo pleine de couleurs.

quante persone, quanti volti, quanti colori, quanti pensieri, ma un unico festeggiamento.
Bello scatto, mi piace, si lascia osservare piacevolmente, i dettagli sono molti e incuriosiscono molto.

great and very vibrant composition!
I think it was a great idea to go into a wide,panoramic format,which captures perfectly the essence of the scene and what you wanted to convey with it.
Have a nice weekend

I have noticed that people sometimes say about me that I want as many persons as possibly in every picture. It's not quite true, but in spite of that I really enjoy this photo, which must be close to some unofficial TE record of packing people inside a frame. The sharpness is so good that looking at the large version I can study every face closely, trying to detect peoples' characters and individual traits. It is a very colourful photo, but looking closely I realize that it would have been very much more colourful if taken somewhere in the plains of central India or in the south. Darjeeling is on the outskirts of Indian culture, and that is quite obvious from this interesting photo.

A marvelous shot of the crowd with great composition, colors, clarity.
Nicely presented in a panoramic frame.
Thanks for providing all types of human facial expressions and characters in one rectangle.

Warm greetings from southern Spain.

Namaskar dear Farhat
No one does "crowd" quite as well as the Indians or the Chinese :) This is a wonderful composition, so colourful, lively and exotic just like the country itself, the people reflect it perfectly. I love the tight framing too and could look at this for hours and still find something new to marvel at. Excellent work.
Thanks for sharing

They said usually "the grey crowd", but your crowd is very colorful and picturesque. great capture of the the large number of people. Good crop, nice framed.
mirosu (14926) 2013-12-08 2:02
Excellent photo, I like the tight crop and well framing in panoramic format. The people are in very good light. Well done.
siudzi (34047) 2013-12-08 4:45
Amazing shot! The colorful people with umbrellas created a truly unique and original sight. Impressive quality achieved. Very well done!

Dear Fabbs, good view of the crowd during independance day celebration of last year, people in Asia like to wear colorful clothes, it's nice
Excellent hues and perspective, a picture well cropped
jcpix (13700) 2013-12-08 6:48
Oh, I like this one a lot! The tight framing and use of a panoramic format suits this perfectly. It's the epitome of humanity, yeah? :) So many people, so many faces of individuality, and so much color to absorb from the multitude of elements. A great concept and approach to envision the opportunity. Well observed and presented!
ourania (32741) 2013-12-08 10:07
a great idea to point your lens towards the spectators offering us a fine picture with huge human interest. I like very much your tight panoramic frame that's filled with people. The umbrella near the upper border closes your composition superbly. The impact of so many people gathered together is great but your clear and well illuminated picture goes beyond the title "crowd" and allows us to study individual characteristics, expressions and attitudes. You got a delightful palette of colours too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely week,

Lep pogled na publiku, na dan proslave, Dan Nezavisnosti.
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast, lepe boje.
Dobar rad, lepo pokazani ljudi na proslavi, lepo secanje.
Imajte lep i uspesan dan, sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela, srecno.
Nice view of the audience, on the day of the celebration of Independence Day.
Good time recording, contrast, beautiful colors.
Good work, nice people displayed at the celebration, nice memories.

Good reportage photo.
I like frame, colors and sharpness.
Have a nice afternoon
Royaldevon (30713) 2013-12-09 3:27
A shot which looks easier than it probably was! So many people, so much movement but you have suspended them all in time!
It is such an interesting, colourful shot.
There are expressions, relationships and costumes to discover. The dotted umbrellas add to the overall mood of the shot.
It was thoughtful to include the f/g railings which give a sense of place.
Have a great day,
kato (11630) 2013-12-09 3:55
You're capturing well this crowd by a good panoramic view and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see a lot of spectators sitting on the seats of stadium in the Independence Day celebration. It's also impressive colorful clothes of them. And, the parasol shows the heat of this place.
ikeharel (58817) 2013-12-09 8:40
Good evening Farhat,
very vibrant and vivid picture, the many people in multi-colors clothings and umbrellas, made this picture a magnificent composition.
Excelent clear image.
nikkitta (14992) 2013-12-09 12:55
Quite agree with Gert, may be this is the photo with more and may add colorful people posted in TE
The rectangular formats fits well here
Congrats and tfs

Fantastique présentation de la foule dans un format pano, beaucoup d'expressions a voir et de couleurs, vraiment une très belle réalisation
mcmtanyel (14209) 2013-12-12 21:01
This is a very successful shot of a wall of people. The sharpness and colors are exquisite. The composition is very skillful.
macjake (57344) 2013-12-13 7:14
Now thats a people photo!! Haha
Did you even try to count them all up? :)
Its fun looking at all the colors, all the different styles of clothes and the occasional umbrella is neat too.
clic (15308) 2013-12-17 16:42
I notice the red and blue are favourite colors for clothing in West Bengal!
I'm disappointed for not seing any beer or hotdog sellers amongst this attentive gathering!
You dared something different and it's quite attractive.
subhendu_bagchi (25869) 2013-12-18 3:38
hi, those crowd are very well captured in such panoramic format. Enjoyed the mood which the Indirenednse day generated to them. I also saw such exiting show in the Wagha border. Nice one. Tfs.
COSTANTINO (56749) 2013-12-19 22:28

EstudioChispa (2070) 2013-12-20 7:05
I am a confessed "people watcher." My wife and I will sit in an airport during a layover and watch the people stream by, and make up stories about them based on little clues we see. This image speaks directly to that part of me. I could hang this on my wall and have a different experience every time I looked at it!
Thanks for sharing!
adramad (38820) 2013-12-20 9:58
Certainly a large crowd waiting for the events, the picture is much impact that color so different.
Well seen and done better.
A bright image with optimum clarity.
Enjoy a good weekend.
annjackman (20091) 2013-12-21 2:39
This is a great photo. The lines of people in bright colours and holding umbrellas makes a delightful pattern all underlined very well by the horizontal railings. Very well done.
Kind Regards, Ann
josepmarin (57831) 2014-01-04 11:37
this panoramic framing is very efficient graphically, the crowd fills the composition with a lot of vitality and with a great colour variety.
You have had a good idea in this beautiful creation. Well done.
