The Chopper and the Crowd : This is my second photograph on TE being shot on a mobile phone.This time on a I-phone 4S model.In this image you can see a chopper taking off from a helipad with a large crowd watching its dust raising motion.The image was taken in the outskirts of Calcutta during a Political campaign,When a political stalwart is moving to another venue for campaigning boarding the chopper with the large crowd waiting to see their leader and the chopper as it leaves.There are two young boys who have climbed a soccer goal post to get a closer look.The cops are busy keeping the crowd within the bamboo channels.Hope you like this image although the quality of resolution may not be upto the mark.

You are on a right place at the right time. Nicely taken & good managed shot. Our so called Helicopters leader flying out after showing innocent people day dreams.
thanks for sharing.

This is a very interesting photograph. The emotions on the faces tell a lot. Especially liked the policeman on the foreground, shouting on the phone and doing a sprint too.
Nice contrast you have brought out - on one hand, we have the crowds enamoured by the copter, and then we have a politician for whom a copter ride is just like any other.
Have a great day!

Nice snapshot in quite good light. Excellent arrangement with the helicopter in BG and the crown on the side. You have also well placed the policeman in the frame. Big issue your elections, I was following it on CNN & BBC.

An action packed shot captured at an opportune moment. My favourite character is the policeman running toward the camera, walky-talky to his ear and pointing at something.
Sergiom (63002) 2014-05-20 5:28
Quand on n'a pas le temps de sortir sa caméra, le téléphone peut toujours être utile.La foule est dense et bientôt ils seront tous recouvert de poussière.

very nice capture of the scene,
there are many details to see,
the quality is not so bad as you write in your note,I would say is better than many other photos where are taken with a dslr camera and we see every day in web ...
Royaldevon (31339) 2014-05-22 2:11
You may have only used a mobile phone but the composition and details are very well portrayed. You have excellent guides, a sense of drama from the pointing official and contextual details from the clouds of dust!
I love the enthusiasm, where people are climbing to wave at the helicopter!
Have a great day,

Excelent result for the Cell photo, inspite the dust and strong light, Farhat.
Good jurnalist report from the election campign, hope you like the results.
The crowd is in fine vivid tones to contrast the dust raised by the chopper.
Have a nice weekend,

Une scène capturer au bon moment, l'action des personnes, le vol de l'hélicoptère, la poussière, bonne lumière et couleurs, intéressante image
nikkitta (15334) 2014-05-25 12:50
Politicians always in a hurry, like the dust at the back and the police pointing at you?
Well done, congrats

Ciao Farhat, great action scene, lovely composition with a lot of people, excellent perspective, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio
ourania (33565) 2014-05-31 9:02
I find this scene very interesting and your composition superb. You've captured and exalted the dynamism and the atmosphere of the moment, the role of the crowd and the policemen, maybe also the attitude of the politician in a metaphorical sense. I like very much the deep perspective, the framing by the shade, the natural colours and the sense of action. I also like the balance of your composition and the free space you left in the sky. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

This is a great photo, given that it was taken by a smartphone. The composition (independent of the camera) is excellent with the two fences leading the eye to the helicopter.

A very curious scene.
Good reportage photo.

An interesting report on the election and campaigning in WB... I was in Goa at the time and they only use cars there!
Excellent light colours and sharpness, specially considering it is shot on a mobile phone...
serp2000 (41012) 2014-06-20 8:26
I think not every pocket camera could gives you so good quality as your iPhone. Well done. Good capture of the moment, it reminds me my photo of a political event in Panjim (Goa).
clic (15436) 2014-06-24 8:56
Those mobile phones do marvels, nowadays.
Most exotic are those bamboo fences and of course, so many people watching an helicopter taking off!
Thanks for this instructive piece of West Bengal.
adramad (39174) 2014-07-25 8:34
A good image of story, and informative situations every day, people have to be big fans of the political shift, swallowing all that dust, while doing very comfortable in the helicopter.
Very well seen and well taken.
Have a good weekend.
