The Lady in Red: This image was captured on the same day as was the previous one.This Adivasi young lady clad in bright red saree was found to be shopping at a fair in Digha with her son.In this image you can see the lady minutely checking a toy car before buying it for her son or may be thinking whether she can really afford it.The red and white bangles as well as the red vermilion in the parting of her hairs indicate her being married - normally this is a practice of Bengali Hindus,but has been accepted by adivasis too in Bengal.

A very well spotted moment and a very nicely cropped photo. The composition benefits greatly from this shape and the tight cropping. The lady is very elegantly dressed and her red saree contrasts nicely with her son's yellow shirt. Their green and white lower parts almost coincide. Lots of fine things to watch in this street-shot.

Very well seen and taken. You really pressed the button in the right moment when the lady is carefully studying the toy and her son that is filled with exceptations what his mother's decision will be. TFS and have a nice day!

What a lovely photo of a precious moment! I hope the lady ended up buying the toy car and the little boy is still enjoying it. I can just imagine the anticipation on the little boy's face; although we can't see the face, his body language tells it all.

As I saw the photo, I went to the narrative and was not disappointed. You have highlighted the facts excellently.
Looks like a fair, with the lady and her son having come well dressed, down to the shoe. Nice to see poverty fading...
Emotions excellently captured.

You're capturing well this family by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the spectacle in which this lady is checking the toy car in general dealer whecther checkin to afford it to her son. She is wearing traditional colorful clothes, and it is also interesting to hear white bangles and red vermilion as married sign.

A superb composition, a large portrait of the environment and life in the country, the beautiful sari for women, with the boy looking very careful, all those textile items from the shop.
Very nice range of colors.
Splendid sharpness and good light.
Happy start to the week.
All the best.

nice the daily life scenery of this lady in red with her son in yellow to contrast perfect in the frame.I like the charmy event as the good presentation of the open air market of the town.

Interesting capture that reflets daily life, what better that a mother quite eabsorbed in deciding to buy a toy and the anxious boy witing?
Like the great contrast, modern - tipical clothes between them
SWEETFREEDOM (24621) 2014-03-08 5:13

J'aime les tenues des dames dans votre pays, c'est très élégant, colorées, le petit garçon n'est pas sans couleurs non plus , c'est beau, cela donne beaucoup de gaieté, l'expression de la dame, regardant la voiture, se demandant si elle doit l'acheter ce qu'espère le petit bonhomme, très jolie scène
ourania (51103) 2014-03-08 12:39
an interesting daily life scene that can touch the viewer with its simple and familiar theme. You framed the scene excellently so that the people and their reactions become very important. At the same time there's a rich context that fills the frame and adds information. I think that the lighting is a little too bright but sharpness is great and I'm glad you captured so well the lady's thoughtful expression and the little boy's eagerness. The angle of your capture and the connection of the people with the setting are superb. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Sorry for being so late, Farhat.
It is quite evident here that the kid's interest is focused on the "strange" item he never saw before!
Quite a colourful display and elegant dressing!

These stalls are selling handicrafts made with shells collected in the bay of Bengal Fabbs, many elements to watch, I like indian girls with dark skin some of them are so cute, she is with a baby checking the price of that item, all the best, greetings

nice market scene with an interesting note. This type of customs are completely invisible to people traveling alone -it is nice to have a guide to point them out like you did here.
Very well seen and captured,
