LIFE IN DARJEELING SERIES - X (IMAGES OF DAILY LIFE FROM DARJEELING - LAST IN A SERIES OF 10 IMAGES).
Its been a great journey on Trekearth.com for the last seven months.I had discovered this site accidentally but then over the last few months it became my most frequently visited site on the net.The site with its unique approach towards promoting photography as a serious hobby gave me an impetus to improve upon my ideas and techniques of photo making.I came across many friends who appreciated my efforts and gave me important tips to develop my sense of photography.Without the appreciations and critiques of my TE Friends, it would not have been possible for me come this far.I would like to convey my heartfelt thanks and gratitude to my TE Friends and the moderators and developers of this site on the eve of the New Year. I would like to wish all my friends on TE a prosperous and happy 2013 and hope that we start with renewed vigor from tomorrow to give our best efforts for Trekearth.com in 2013.
In this last photograph of my series on Darjeeling, I have tried to display the love for music that the people of Darjeeling have and that is what we all would like them to do on the last day of the year.Its a nostalgic day for me too as my stint in Darjeeling is coming to an end tomorrow, but I hope to carry back home great memories of this beautiful place and my stay here for the last six months.I still have many more photographs of this lovely hill-station which I shall share with all of you in days to come.Once again HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of you and best wishes for a rocking 2013.

marabu61 (11057) 2013-01-01 3:20
a joyful scene to begin the new year. I like the way, the musicians are composed diagonaly through the frame here and the front man acts as a good anchor point in the composition.
a very happy new year to you and your loved ones, may it bring lots of joy, happiness and travel to you.
kordinator (20521) 2013-01-01 3:27
Fantastic street life scene.
Am excellent photo.

mirosu (16265) 2013-01-01 3:32
This street composition is strong, I like the fact you have a clear foreground and background. Excellent clarity and sharpness. The group playing guitar add nice life to the scene. Well seen and captured.
Many thanks for all your comments in 2012, and I like to wish you and your family a happy and successful New Year 2013.
siolaw (38292) 2013-01-01 5:59
Good framing of the scene and an interesting sight of this guitar quartet!
holmertz (53488) 2013-01-01 11:24
This is a fine street-scene with a good atmosphere and great colours and light. The crowd doesn't look big, but maybe you had most of it behind your back. You compsed the picture well by placing the man in brown clothes closest to you, in the corner. He balances the rest of the band very well. The surrounding streets with all their signs provide a colourful and interesting background.
adramad (45994) 2013-01-01 16:04
Very nice this picture that conveys the joy of these guys on the street, that the joy and music gladden our hearts in this year just started.
It's a wonderful scene, captured with perfect sharpness and color.
I want to wish you a Happy New Year 2013 to you and family.
All the best.

You're capturing well this scene by a good composition and fine tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the street musicians playing the music with guitar at the roadside. It's interesting in spectators who are hearing it around, and is a sociable spectacle seen also in what country, too. And, it's impressive in individual stores with signboard in back.
Happy New Year 2013, and I wish this year is a good and healthy year for you and your family.
pierrefonds (66875) 2013-01-02 4:39
The presence of the people is giving life to the scene. You have captured well the action of the street musicians. The good luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

Happy New Year.
josepmarin (58359) 2013-01-02 12:32
in this fresh and spontaneous scene we can see the love for the music of these people, as these street musicians and singers demonstrate us.
The image is clean and very rich graphically, the composition has a great vitality, and your note informs us effectively.
A good work.

नमस्ते प्रिय फरहत. 1013 साल के लिए बधाई
मैं भारत के इन खूबसूरत शॉट्स प्यार करता हूँ. यह बहुत अच्छा है, और रोजमर्रा की जिंदगी में खुशी और खुशी. भंडार और वे पृष्ठभूमि चित्र बहुत ही प्रभावशाली और आकर्षक हैं. एक अच्छी तस्वीर भारत से अलग है.
आप इस अच्छी तस्वीर के लिए पंजीकरण के लिए धन्यवाद
Didi (60588) 2013-01-03 10:30
Interesting street scene. Only the sound is missing
The frame is a little bit disturbing.
I have done a WS
Best regards and best wishes for 2013
danos (98453) 2013-01-03 13:19
good reportage shot for the city with a lot of natives to watch the recital of the street orchestra.
I like the light as the colour management with all of them to enjoy the beautiful moments.
ourania (46264) 2013-01-03 14:23
a very vivid impression of the street concert. The picture is very well composed and has great depth. The buildings and signs at the back are like a setting on the impromptu stage. It's nice to see the musicians' smiles and the effect the music has on some members of the audience. Depth and sharpness are superb and the colours have a special fascination looking natural and dated at the same time. Congratulations and thank you!
Happy new year and all the best!
adores (45613) 2013-01-03 16:02
Another good one to your series!So much life in this little square. I like the faces, poses and all those details in background. I'm sure it's a really interesting region. Good capture! Hope you'll post more later:)!
Have a fantastic New Year!
zoomer (6) 2013-01-03 17:01
Hello,wonderful upbeat street scene.Those musicians don't seem to be native.It's hard to tell with the american attire though.Have a great new year too,Wolf.
s_lush (16134) 2013-01-03 22:34
This lovely scene in your picture along with the informative and interesting note give a very good idea about such a nice city, as Darjeeling, and creative atmosphere in its streets. Excellent capture, as well as all photos in your 'Life in Darjeeling' series!
clic (17129) 2013-01-06 6:37
You complete beautifully your serie on West Bengal by an hearty street concert filled with "local thruth" represented by charmed people seen in front of a Darjeeling decor.
Those pieces of India were very instructive for future tourists!
PaulVDV (29153) 2013-01-08 13:48
A colourful and atmospheric street scene in an attractive composition with the lead singer nicely on the foreground.
My best wishes for a prosperous 2013.

Good street shot showing daily life and festivity. The performers adds a liveliness to the scene on the street. I can almost here the music.
fritzi007 (10819) 2013-01-17 3:49
gute Strassenszene, sehr lebendig!
jacquest (18927) 2013-01-17 12:36
Well taken musical and street life scene with colorful people all around. I notice the "dry" music, no electric or electronic devices.
Fis2 (98543) 2013-01-17 13:06
A very nice scene.
I like colors and composition.
Good reportorial shot.
tedesse (25135) 2013-01-17 14:38
Hello Farhat !
Great street shot showing street musicians.
Nicely framed picture in beautiful colors and good sharpness.
eldancer1 (36343) 2013-01-17 20:30
Excellent capture of those street musicians! The seem to be everywhere even in the famous Las Vegas Strip. Great action shot with good lighting and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.
macjake (68458) 2013-01-18 0:00
its always a welcome sight to visit these daily life type of street scenes from India.
its fun to also view the bg store signs, just to see what else is going on.
love the views and subjects
raszid62 (18515) 2013-01-19 8:50
The street musicians group - I'm very curious what they are playing music too. But the sound is clear to me, guitar quartet, so the guitar sounds. Strong and warm colors composed a very interesting picture. Excellent quality.
गुड आफ़्टरनून. सड़क पर संगीतकारों समूह - मैं बहुत उत्सुक हूँ क्या वे संगीत भी खेल रहे हैं. लेकिन ध्वनि मेरे लिए स्पष्ट है, गिटार चौकड़ी तो, गिटार लगता है. मजबूत और गर्म रंग एक बहुत ही दिलचस्प तस्वीर की रचना की. उत्कृष्ट गुणवत्ता. तुम्हारा.
jemaflor (98007) 2013-01-21 4:34
Musicians are well captured with all these people, good colors, light and view of the street, well managed., tfq.
Cricri (120143) 2013-01-22 11:05
J'aime l'ambiance qui ressort de cette image, la position différentes des quatres guitaristes, leurs expressions, les personnes qui regardent, les couleurs et le guitariste mis en avant plan, très jolie scéne et image
Miguel82 (27646) 2013-02-12 7:37
A superb document of that street artists in Darjeeling,
I have taken picture of young boys playing guitar in the streets also will post it after.
Good framing, excellent colors
Kielia (24077) 2013-03-04 8:36
a great action shot indeed, with a fascinating mood. The composition is excellent. The accompanying note is also very nice. My compliments!
tomi1 (2218) 2013-03-28 14:13
Stands out here a common moment of a street day in this city. All the environment englobing the street houses helps to feel everything in the distance. At least I can imagine myself there! I ever stop when these groups act to appreciate their skill bringing music from their countries. Generally I see many groups from Peru. Regards. Tomi
