A Touch of Rural Bengal - III : In this image, you can see a family traveling on a cycle-rickshaw near the Howrah town. The lady seems to be aware of my intention to shoot her through the lens.The other boys look towards the back.The rickshaw wallah is inattentive and is unaware of what is happening around him.

This is a great shot with perfect iight and colours. It's nicely framed and I like the tight cropping that leaves everything not essential out of the picture. There's a great contrast between the nice-looking woman's lovely smile at you (yes, she was aware of your intentions) and the grim-looking rickshaw wallah. And no wonder he doesn't look happy, having to pull this crowd along the street.

Lep trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazana riksa sa putnicima, lepe boje.
Prijatno vece i lepa noc, sve najbolje za vikend, srecno.
Beautiful moment ...
Good time recording and contrast nicely demonstrated rickshaw with passengers, beautiful colors.
Have a nice evening and night, all the best for the weekend, good luck.

Wonderful shot in a compact frame. The eye contact with the lady is most attractive. Perfect colors and great light management. Your street shots are always outstanding... and this one is no exception.
Thanks for sharing.

Attractive daily life shot, good idea to make this square composition, fine details. This is very interesting street story, well done!

Or perhaps the wallah is simply focused on his task! :-) I am always fascinated by these "slice of life" images form other places. Mostly, they reveal that we do many of the same things in many different ways -- but that at heart, we are all one!

A well composed picture of a family on the move.The lady is giving you a rye smile, and is prominent with her bright clothing.
I expect the husband has a lot on his mind, and maybe thinking how he is going to provide for his family?

Fabbs, a pleasant daily life capture showing a cycle rickshaw with its passengers and drivers, not easy for him, hard life, the vehicle should be heavy, vivid colors and excellent clarity, all the best Fabbs, see you!

Excellent snapshot. I feel pity for this poor man carrying such a heavy cargo. But on the other side I'm sure that he is happy to earn some money in this way. I like the composition showing the nice smiling face of lady passenger and even more concerned face of rickshaw driver.
Wish you a very nice weekend.

Good morning Farhat,
A well made picture, with two faces expressions, that are in great contrast: the rickshaw-man is seem to have an uneasy posture while you taken the photo, and the lady who is sitting with her kids looksvery content and happy.
A fine clear image, colorful and vivid.
Enjoy your weekend,

here is a nice daily life shot. Like the view of those rural people travelling in such interesting vehicle. Excellent light and sharpness. Good one. Tfs.

You're capturing well this daily life by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the friendly family who is travelling by a cycle-rickshaw and the rickshaw wallah with a severe countenance. And, it's impressive in woman's smile watching your camera and wearing the scarf of good design.

wonderfully colourful and characterful shot this. A real sense of the mood and atmosphere of this wonderful mode of transport. Immaculate detailing and a perfectly presented slice of everyday life.
Have a great weekend - B.

Beautiful street scene, i like this smiling lady dressed in beautiful clothes, perfect shot with pin sharp details
RhodieIke (10379) 2014-01-25 9:33
Great colourful capture of this family being carried around on a rickshaw, it looks full of sun is it very warm in January?
Pin sharp, great presentation, Tfs,
Lots of rain and lightning in Suffolk and 10c.

Evidently, this wallah is a fulfilled athlete for carrying a whole family in his coach!
Many compliments for the close shot that shows much interesting and colourful details.
mkamionka (28031) 2014-01-25 12:46
nice street scene. There is so much color here mainly due to the traditional clothes of the woman. You have captured the people with nice face expressions.
Very well spotted,
mcmtanyel (7325) 2014-01-25 13:33
A nice, perfectly framed photo full of colors. I am assuming wallah refers to the driver. Why is he pushing it rather than pedaling?
adramad (32881) 2014-01-25 17:17
Splendid portrait of this family group, in which only the woman actually was aware that he was being picked up and sets his eyes on the camera with a half smile, as we children are distracted with something and the man is seen as thinking of something else ....
A colorful perfect very natural and well contrasted.
A bright image with optimum clarity.
Good job. I love
Enjoy the weekend.

Excellent cadrage, la prise rapprocher, le visage tirée et sérieux de l'homme contre un grand sourire de la dame, un travail des plus dur, en plus avec toutes ces personnes dans le chariot, belle présentation
PaulVDV (18724) 2014-01-26 9:50
A very beautiful street scenery in a perfect fitting tight cropping.
The rickshaw driver looks tired from the transport.
Excellent clarity, sharpness and colours.
Best regards, Paul
UlfE (14453) 2014-01-26 9:59
A wonderful and very vivid street scence. The tight frame is excellent and your photo really a sense that you are very close. The colours and sharpness could not be better. I love the expression on the faces of both the lady and the rickshaw wallah. TFS and have a nice day!
Schnappilic (9536) 2014-01-26 10:40
Interesting facial expressions. Splendid daily life atmosphere. Well done!
SnapRJW (26088) 2014-01-26 22:05
Hello Farhat - Your close crop focuses the viewer's attention on the DL scene without distraction. The rickshaw wallah has a determined look on his face, I think he needs plenty of determination to peddle hid bike and transport such a loaded rickshaw! I like the eye-contact the lady gives to your lens as it adds immediacy to the shot. A very god glimpse of a lifestyle far removed from my own. TFS and warm regards Rosemary
annjackman (16479) 2014-01-27 8:39
This is a very sharp and colourful image an I like the close crop giving an inside view of the ricksaw. I am always fascinated by transport in India wich is so diverse.
A lovely street shot.
Kind Regards, Ann

nikkitta (10418) 2014-01-29 16:11
The driver is concentrate pushung this full of people rickshaw while the lady smiles a you
Well done, exelent street scene taken in full action
ourania (21432) 2014-02-01 9:48
the tight framing has exalted the lady's direct glance and restrained smile, it's very interesting how she and the wallah are two interesting focal points placed at the sides of the frame. The bright colours around the lady and the light on her face enhance the attractiveness of her expression. You managed light, depth and sharpness superbly and captured the essence of this fleeting scene in a busy street of Bengal. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,
adores (32170) 2014-02-18 15:48
Seems it's a really hard task for the wallah! His life is surely not easy. A good and colourful daily scene!
