This was taken the first morning after arriving, when everything was exciting. I stayed in Paharganj and recommend it to anyone visiting Delhi: Cheap hotels, fun backstreets, cows roaming, and daily life happening all around. (The scratch on the negative is a bummer.)

Another amazing shot. Quite a low angle you got here, something that really lets me feel the sense of this street, the motion all around. B&W works wonderfully here to convey a special feeling (I notice everything in the shot has a nostalgic feel: the clothes of the motorbike rider on the right; his motorbike as well; all other principal players seem to be stuck in a time long, long ago). Great stuff.

a very good b&w photo, Keir.
Intersting traffic scene, a good shot of urban chaos.
Vertical crop is a little bit too tight.
Anyway - well done!.

very good shot, you captured the street chaos very well, B&W works well here, the tuk-tuk (?) is a bit too close, but still it is a very good picture

Nice shot! I agree with Fil that the B & W adds a nostalgic feel. If you said this was taken in the 1950's, I'd have believed it. I agree, though, that the crop is a little too tight on top and in the front. Also, I wish a could see the face of the guy in the tuk-tuk a little more clearly. But, all in all, a very effective daily life shot.

Nice picture. The "ambiance" of Paharganj is all there. The Black and white is a good choice.

Nice. A little soft, but nice.
Excellent atmosphere conveying the hustle and bustle of Indian street life.

I like it. I don't think the Bajaj is too close, but a little less cropping would have been nice, so you can see all of the roof. You can probably get rid of the scratch on the negative with Photoshop too.
