~ Namaste /\ 900th For TE ~
Here is a moment which came after almost five long years. During this period I learned A LOT from my TE friends. I entered this site with a little knowledge about photography and with a small compact digital camera, which I used for a long long time. But your kind helps and assistance with valuable suggestions made me a bit stronger these days, when I started using a DSLR. Thanks for all of your valuable critiques, specially those real constructive critiques which rectified my sense in this field of photography. I am an amateur photographer but it is really a passionate love for me. Thanks to you all for bearing me from the very begining. I can name all of my friends, who are encouraging me through this journey, but it will turn to a long long list. So, I'll not wright those names, I'll just recall them whose presence were valueable to me but they are not with this site these days. Hope they'll active again with their immense potential.
Anyway, thanks again.
~ Enjoy It & Namaste ~

Many Congratulations to you to achieve such a milestone in TE. Yes you are right that we have to learn a lot from TE friends. As such I am learning from you !!!! Your pics are superb. I can understand your learning process since I am passing through the same process these days.
Discover the world through photography is the motto of TE which is 100 percen correct. With this discovery we can also nurture our inner photographer.
I am also watching TE for more than 5 years but I was only a spectators till 2012. After becoming a member of TE in 2012 I am learning most valuable lessons of photography. I am taking my hobby seriously now.
I am also missing a senior member of TE. His name is Angshu.
Our best wishes are with you to achieve many more milestore in photography. I just wanted to know before entering TE did you an ametuer photographer?

A fine portrait of this sadhu with bright colours and excellent detailing. Very good timing and observation to catch the holy man in a 'namaskar' pose. Nice one, thanks for sharing.
Many congrats on your 900th photo over here, looking forward to see such wonderful posts from you.

Tu as su entrer dans l'intimité de cet homme en prière de très belle façon.On voit presque son âme dans son regard. Il est parfaitement placé dans l'image. J'aime beaucoup ses mains jointes et ses bagues.
abmdsudi (56298) 2014-02-25 6:02
Congrats on your 900th, a strong and emotional portrait, your ability to snap in circumstances at the right time is applauded. Great framing and well detailed sharp in focus on the eyes with excellent clarity and shallow dof. A very effective shot, perhaps you may consider to tone down the background red as it tends to distract and take the focus away from main subject. This is my sincere opinion hopefully acceptable to you. Well done, Congrats
holmertz (56095) 2014-02-25 7:11
Congratulations on your jubilee. I have said it before, and I will say it again, that you have developed as a photographer in a most impressive way during your years at TE. This photo is strong proof of your talent. It is an amazing portrait, well timed and well composed, as well as being technically perfect.
Angshu (56760) 2014-02-25 8:36
A lovely portrait for your 900th anniversary. Congratulations...you have indeed developed in leaps & bounds in photography! You have also now crossed my post numbers...congrats for that as well ;-)
The red background makes this all the more beautiful. Good closeup shot with fine details!
Lets see you post hundreds more and make us proud with the quality of your pictures
SnapRJW (31629) 2014-02-25 9:36
I love this Subhendu - Your crop is original and I like the way you have used the negative space to direct our attention to the praying hands... excellent. The rings are pin-sharp and a very good focal point. I like the colours too; red and look how well it makes a backdrop for the hands. Well done, I like this a lot. Warm regards Rosemary
PS... 900th shot! Congratulations!
Indrasish (2943) 2014-02-25 9:37

Romano46 (18472) 2014-02-25 10:31
una foto eccellente nella composizione e notevole anche per il soggetto colto in un momento di profonda ispirazione.
Bello anche il contrasto tra il rosso ed il colore della pelle.
Straordinaria la messa a fuoco e la relativa nitidezza.
Ciao e buona serata

Great to see this achievement...not only the impressive number of photos, but also the remarkable quality in which you've obtained. Congratulation on the hallmark of 900. A very concise note which expresses many shared sentiments. I've learned more in my time here than I ever had previously, and will hopefully continue to grow more proficient as time passes.
Your style is indelibly positive to TE, I've enjoyed following along and wish you at least 900 more! :) Great to hear from you, keep 'em coming!
Apurba20 (984) 2014-02-25 21:01
A very emotional thanks which you have given to TE.
I find this Namaste intriguing, firstly because it seems to be very genuine, which usually comes when one tries to communicate with God. Secondly, do I see a hint of tears?
Corry (4508) 2014-02-25 21:08
Très beau portrait de cet homme en prière. Couleurs très attrayantes et netteté excellente. Très bien fait.
jjcordier (79297) 2014-02-25 21:58

Congratulations for this milestone. It is always good moment for some reflections. TE is a great place to learn about the world, photography and the important to have friends from all over the world. And what a splendid portrait you show for this occasion. Amazing close up of the hands of this old man.

mirosu (16273) 2014-02-26 1:19
An excellent photo. Smart choice of tight crop to accentuate the man with splendid sharpness, great color contrast, superb light and very good POV choice.
Very well done
Wish you a very nice rest of the week.
BennyV (18977) 2014-02-26 5:52
A terrific post, great close crop and framing with focus on the hands, the lines on them, the rings. Great bg blur effect too. I like the hint of blue in it, it works really well with the dominant red.
CLODO (35126) 2014-02-26 7:41
I do not agree with your sentence "your suggestions made me a bit stronger these days..." you're too shy, to say you're a GOOD photographer as this portrait of the man praying with a superb bokeh tells us, and with a good play of the colors - mainly the red.
Congratulations for your gallery!
patpatch (1601) 2014-02-26 8:41
What a mervelous portrait !The sharpness is just incredible (the skin,the jewels and the beard).It's very impressive and attractive.
The composition is original and interesting,but overall I like the intimist atmosphere of this scenery.
Congratulations from France.
Didi (60590) 2014-02-26 9:45
You excel well in natural portraits
Well done for this one with a very good frame quality
Good decisive moment Kind regards
ourania (48706) 2014-02-26 9:46
congratulations and thank you for your rich and always interesting work on TE! I like very much the curiosity and fondness with which you look at the world, delivering lovely, colourful photos from your homeland. I wish you to nurture this passion for photography for a very long time, for our benefit too.
I like very much the way you composed this portrait, your point of view and the Sadhu's gesture give it an agreeable dynamism. There's superb sharpness and the red tones stand out so vividly. It's great how you were able to have intense glance and meaningful hands so prominent in such a tight frame. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,
Royaldevon (40988) 2014-02-26 12:24
This is an impressive shot with which to celebrate your 900th posting. Congratulations!
I love the close cropping, which focuses in tightly on his facial features, his expression, his humble body language, almost to his inner mind. It is a deep, thoughtful portrait, beautifully executed.
my warm regards,
wolf38 (31296) 2014-02-27 6:48
