Typical Bengali marriage ritual.
After radeeh's comment-
Sampradaan is the ceremony of committing the bride into the hands of the bride groom by the Father of the bride.

The title and the subject in focus is absolutely meaningful.
100% indianess you have brought in to the composition.
The depth is very much in the shot.
You should have wrote little about wahts happening so that people from other countries also get an idea.
Great work TFS

Bhari sundar chobi, typical bengali biye. The focus is in sync with the title.

Honnestly I don't fall for your choice of focus. I think its a pity that this beautiful bride in your composition only appears as a background element. I do think your pic could have been much more appealing if she was sharper...but then maybe it would be a different story.

Nice one Arindam...You inspire me to upload some of the photographs that I took in a recent marriage :)

Gorgeous shot, Arindam, I like how you emphasize the hand in the front, meaning SO very much at the moment, yet left the bride's face also focused just enough that we can see her ponderous expression. A truly beautiful shot, very nicely judged, lovely work with lots of emotional overtones.
