Flower sellers at Poorna market, Vizag.
Flowers are extensively used in India (more so in the South) for the daily worship or ‘Pooja’ as it is called in Hindi. From what I have seen, flowers with strong frangrances are not used since they evoke the feeling of Shringara (romance). The flowers used for worship have delicate aromas considered suitable for the mood of devotion.
The flowers that are seen here are also used by the ladies tp adorn their hair. This is also more common in the south, especially among the urban population, than in the north.

Another fine street-shot from the city off the tourist track. The salesman standing up looks slightly angry to be in the picture. His friend, sitting down, is laughing, maybe because he thinks he will not be in the picture. How wrong he was. Now they are both on the internet for the world to see and enjoy. Fine colours and nice details, including the pictures of deities on the wall with garlands hanging from them.

A stark contrast in attitude between these two flower sellers, one rather angry and suspicious, the other engrossed in his magazine. The difficult lighting conditions caused you some problems, but on the whole you mastered them well' allowing us to see the detail in the background whilst avoiding any gross over-exposure. Another fine daily life scene well presented.

J'aime les belles couleurs de cette composition. Elles sont très invitantes ainsi que le sourire du vendeur assis. J'aime le contraste entre les ombres et la lumière.

Jolies variétés de couleurs, les décorations de fleurs faites surement par le vendeur, son regard fixe et sérieux, cela semble faire rire le monsieur au journal :-)belle présentation

Hi Satya, Plenty of fresh colour flowers. I like how they are grouped and presented. The flower rolls on the wall are beautiful. Very original type of flower store with simple set up. The man sitting down is laughing so much probably something in the magazine appears funny to him. Great composition and great details. Thank for sharing

Another superb daily life scene and good to have caught the man smiling. Vibrant, saturated colour from the marigolds and other flowers on sale. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the red, yellow orange and blue. Have a nice week!

ici aussi j'aime beaucoup la vivacité des couleurs.Le jaune presque fluorescent donne une excellente touche à cette réalisation.

a well framed composition that looks spontaneous, an effective layout of interesting information surrounding the two people. I like very much the way you balanced the light and the shade, there's a smooth and delightful transfer fro the one area to the other and clarity is excellent all over the frame. The bright colours really make a strong impact but they don't undermine the details and colours around them. The different responses of the two vendors are intriguing and amusing. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Very good local scene
But I see the same green dominant colour on most of the pictures
I don't kno if it's a camera problem or if your screen needs a calibration of colours
I make a Workshop If you see a pink colour dominant on the white parts than this is a screen problem
Please give me your advice
