Apart from being the most widely celebrated, Diwali is perhaps one the of the prettiest of all Indian festivals. The word Diwali comes from the word “Dipawali” and consist of every household illuminated with “Deeps”- oil lamps and every heart is filled with joy. Diwali, being the festival of lights, thousands of lamps are lit in and outside every home on the day. Lamp or “Deep” is the symbol of knowledge.
1600 ISO to enhance shutter speed under low light.

Love this shot! Very good POV. Do see some noise. But that is unavoidable I guess. Have you tried using a noise reduction software?
Very good use of the DOF. The row of lights are so clear and detailed.
Congrats on this image!

What a uniquely interesting festival you have captured here. Good repetition with all the candles and flames. Nice work in low light conditions. Well done.

Superb exposure under the light conditions. Love the reddish tone all throughout the picture & the diagonal placement of the burning diyas & the two ladies

All the lights sets the mood here with the overall warm light and mood of the place. A bit grainy due to the iso, still no big problem for this special setting.

really it's a festival of light and i feel it is more so because of your marvelous capture of the moment. the over all warm tone increases the impact of the pic. i must give some credit to those people present there as i know how difficult it is to keep all the diyas burning. thanks for sharing such a wonderful picture.
