In a local Indian newspaper I once read about a chili eating competition. The description almost made me feel I would die. Even just touching some of the fiercest kinds of chili could be harmful (to some of us...). But few fruits or vegetables are better suited for colour photos than red chilis. This is a magnificent photo from a good POV where the bags are very nicely lined up along a doagonal, all the way up to a lady's red saree.

Hi Satya, I like chili sauce but I can not stand the raw one. They look really hot. Nice POV and the sizes of the bags have give a nice depth to the composition. Great light and with natural colours. Thank for sharing

The red colours here are indeed looking very attractive and the way the bags are positioned, a fine diagonal line is also provided. An interesting picture!

I like this shot very much. Very well composed with the sacks of brightly coloured chillies leading the viewer toward the man who makes an excellence focal point. Ideally exposed with spot on colours and clarity. Very good rendering of the textural detail in the sacking and the spices.

Oh! Hot! Hot! HOT!
A fine viewpoint, using the colourful chillies for guidance and a sense of perspective. It is so lovely that they are in sunlight whilst the rest of the shot is in shadow.
The poor, hard working man is very well positioned and acts as a stopper to the shot.
Have a great day,

Hello Satya - Cuisine would lose so much if there were no chillies! The bright red fruits make a wonderful subject. Here the sacks are well placed on the diagonal and seem to stretch forever. That's some hot and spicy food!
Have a good week, warm regards

Great, only the background is a little too dark!

This is a fine DL shot from the market. Good diagonal placement of the chilly filled sacks in the frame. Nice timing to catch the thin strip on sunlight on the sacks, it presents good contrast with the dark FG and BG. The contrast between the khaki bags and the bright red peppers is fantastic. Well thought out and executed image. Thanks for sharing.
P.S. Thanks for your comments on my latest photo, I specially liked the LG part :-)

I like the warm cold color contrast between the red chilies and the blue shadows, buckets scales and stripes on the container bags. A superb daily life scene with fantastic sharpness, color and saturation. Effective tight framing and the man top left animates the scene and provides scale. Good repetition of patterns shapes and colors. Have a nice week!

Noticed in India a great use of chilli peppers, asked always , please not too hard and it works
Love to visit markets to see local people as well as to find out what they eat
Color catching capture where the diagonal providing by the red goes to the very back
Very well done

Il y a de quoi mettre plusieurs bouches en feu avec tout le contenu de ces sacs.J'aime beaucoup cette scène de la vie quotidienne avec une belle gestion des ombres et de la lumière.

OUPS beaucoup trop piquant pour moi, mais quel belle image de ces gros sacs rempli de piments rouges dans un jeu ombre et de lumière, belle scène de vie, très belle présentation

This was a difficult shot to take, with the strong shade on the left of the frame, but it was a shot you could not ignore, as it is so compelling. I love the rich colours and textures. I love the character and culture you evoke and most of all I love the subject. A beautiful daily life photo that not too far away will become a historical document of how this was all done.

this must be the shop where you met the shy siblings:) I like very much the strong and deep perspective of this composition as well as the space you've given to the colourful produce, leaving just the upper left corner to the working man. You managed the various degrees of brightness very effectively, the sharpness of your picture is superb and makes details attractive all over. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

This is so interesting street life scene taken with natural and well managed colors. The diagonal layout works pretty well to get a fantastic visual result. TFS!

Love the vivid colour in this image, and the diagonal shot is well thought out and the burst of chili colour really hard to miss. It shouts from the screen. This has worked really well. Excellent image, Congrats
