nice the portrait of the woman as selling her handmade baskets in the market of the town.
I like her excellent placement in the frame as the vivid colours and the lights of the image.

Interesantan i dobar tekst ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, ostrina i kontrast, lepo pokazana gospodja u narodnoj nosnji i pletene korpe, lepe boje.
Imajte lep dan, sve najbolje za vikend, srecno.

Une bonne photo de cette scène, les vêtements et le visage sont superbes, et bien cadré dans cet environnement de paniers.

La dame qui travaille l'osier semble très concentré sur ses gestes.Elle est très bien placée dans l'image et on peut ainsi voir son environnement de travail journalier.

Those baskets reminds me of my school days, we used to make as school projects. I hope this woman sold a lot of them. Good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.

Another excellent addition to your series, this picture is brimming with very real life and great color, and is composed perfectly well. The circular shapes of the baskets make a great focus for the eye, while competing with the colors of the womans clothes.
All the best

The woman doesn't look quite comfortable to have your camera pointed at her, but she is nicely dressed in fine colours and the baskets are beautiful.

Excellent portrait of the saleswoman. I like the concentrated expression on her face and that see did not seem to care too much about that you were photgraphing her. I also like the excellent detail and sharpness of your photo. TFS and have a nice day!

Namaskar dear Farhat
You really got a great quality shot here. The light management, definition and colour are spot-on and this is probably one of the best people photos in your gallery. I like the subtle black and white frame too which contrasts nicely with the vivid colours of your subject. Congratulations.
Have a good weekend

Good portrait of the lady basket seller from the Digha sea side stalls with natural colours and light. I like the way she is engrossed in her trade.
Thanks for sharing.

An excellent photo. Smart choice of horizontal frame and well opted close up to accentuate the woman and her baskets with splendid sharpness, great color contrast, excellent light and very good POV choice.
Very well done.

You're capturing well this spectacle by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the traditional handmade baskets made from bamboo with large and small. And, it's also impressive in the traditional/attractive clothes of woman's seller.

Another excellent street life capture in your gallery. The woman was photographed very well with her natural expression and focus on the stuff. The clarity was executed perfectly to have such a beautiful presentation. Like it!
adramad (40596) 2014-03-01 8:12
An exquisite composition that unites the charm of good portrait of this woman, wearing her beautiful sari and charm of these wicker baskets, which give a good texture and color contrasts.
A bright image with optimum clarity.
Well done. I love it.
Enjoy the weekend.

From the thumbnail on my phone's screen, I thought she was selling bread. Light management is great, the blurry background observed through the back window adds excellent depth.
subhendu_bagchi (25973) 2014-03-01 17:45
hello, your best composition here so far, I think. Great framing with the lady nicely off-centred, busy with those sharply focused baskets. Light is perfect which generates a nice and soft colour tone. Superb work. Tfs.

You have captured well the serious expression of the woman or is she relaxing. The point of view is showing the details, the colours of her clothing and of the baskets. It is clear and precise. Have a nice day.
