A moment's vision, she in an auto and I in my rental car, then the road forks...

What a smile. She lit up the cloudy day. Fantastic moment. Even more fantastic that it can endure to be shared. That's true art. -Hugh

Beautiful smile...and beautiful, fast capture of this scene.
About your compo, I think I would crop it a little (white thing in the left).
Best regards. Grazyna.

Great work here, the heavy blacks above and behind the lady give a moody, almost oppressive feeling, while the smile feels very spontaneous and fleeting and sincere, brightening the whole picture. i'm undecided on the white sign on the left... it seems at first glance like it doesn't add anything, but i think that the whole picture would feel much more flat, shallow, and contrived without it. i think i actually like the spontaneity that it brings. And the two eyes staring back at us from behind her add a nice comic feel, as well. Thanks!

Oh, do I know how you feel. I may project a little...I might not know if your married or alone, courting or mingling...etc. BUT, I know what people refer to when they speak of love at first sight. Not the typical obsession with a pretty face or the lust of movement so gentle as it seduces the temples of their thought.
The eyes of life. A breath so alive that you want to learn about the trials of life in her first grade...you want to learn how her first kiss happened...you want her to tell you the nickname that she hated when she was a few years shy of adolescence...you want to feel her warm tear aginst your cheek as hands push against the velvet sheet wrapped within.
So, the lane travels away and your left with her eyes...not so bad really.

I saw the picture yesterday but was busy with some work.. so i had to come back on this...
it really is the decisive moment capture.. her eyes speak the communication.. and i dont have words what i am feeling.. about the event... just too causaul a happening... and yes still too much not said and untold..

"Look! A Camera pointed at us!" good rendition of the scene...essentially Indian!

This one has a subtil thing that we cannot see fromm the thumbnail, the small boy/girl over looking from inside the rickshaw gives the little touch...

Purely how I imagine travel photo, a whirlwind of brief meetings in the hurry of transports.
Going in different directions but essentially in the same one, a kind of soulsistership. This says : "I know how you feel and I know that you know how I feel". Only the moment counts, no future.

very good one Animesh, but i think its a bit oversharpened somehow.. its my feeling and my only complaint! :)
