Summer temperatures in India are on the rise and the clear liquid from the young green coconuts is a much better option than a cold drink.
There are some health benefits to consuming coconut water. It’s an all-natural way to hydrate, reduce sodium, and add potassium to diets. Naturally refreshing, coconut water has a sweet, nutty taste. It contains easily digested carbohydrate in the form of sugar and electrolytes. It has less sugar, fewer calories, less sodium, and more potassium than a sports drink and much less sugar than sodas or fruit juices: this of course applies to the plain coconut water and not the canned / bottled stuff that usually has added sugar or juices.
I think the lovely green exterior soothes the eyes too…

This sounds like the perfect drink for a hot day ... just wish we had a hot day! Seriously, some very interesting information.
A very good composition of this sharp and colourful, daily life scene. The lady and her goods grab the f/g and lead so very naturally to the equally well placed family group.
The dangling roofing and sun patterns on the floor, supply other interesting contextual details.
It's a pity that the coconut and straw, on the right, has sneaked into the scene and is a little distracting but could have been difficult to clone out.
Have a great day,

The image is very well composed with all the elements nicely placed to produce a well balanced scene. Well exposed in circumstances that were not easy and having good colours and sharpness.

This is a very clear image and although mostly in shade there is some lovely light falling on the ground and on the woman in red. A really delightful daily life picture.
Kind Regards, Ann

J'en prendrais bien un. A condition que quelqu'un ouvre le bouchon pour moi. J'aime beaucoup le sourire de la dame qui se sait photographiée. La dame en rouge est magnifique en arrière plan.

nice to see you post! A great shot, the green is indeed very fresh and vibrant. I would not have recognized three as coconuts as they are totally different from those we can buy her in Ireland. I remember drinking the waste from one many years ago, it was a very strange taste to me. I like the framing using the palm fronds of the streak and the woman's smile is very warm and welcoming. Great note too, thank you.

Oh, this is very familiar daily life scene for me. I like coconut and the coconut water too. I see the seller is a bit confused your photo session ;) Good photo, just a short story from a market. But I like sweet coconut water, with a rum, for example. ;)
Best wishes from Russia!

An interesting article on the coconut with a description, a nice view and a second ...
Good time recording and contrast nicely displayed coconuts and seller, beautiful colors.
In my days of rain.
Pleasant but also beautiful night, all the best.

This is a very attractive and pleasant photo, and it has a lot of local flavour, to say the least. The saleswoman arranging her coconuts has a hint of a smile, indicating that she knows you are taking a photo and is amused but doesn't want to pose. The woman with her two daughters fill the background very nicely and add another point of interest. You ran into a small problem with the person holding a coconur at the right edge, but you couldn'r crop that part without spoling the nice trio. If you have moved the camera to the right, to include that person fully, you would have spoiled the most important part of the picture. And to be honest, I didn't even notice those hands and the nut at the first sight, because I was so busy watching the saleswoman and the trio.

you have the ability to to capture a daily life and convey all of it`s warmth and charm in a really well composed scene.
The contrast in light conditions have been well handled whilst the traditional bright colours are faithful and most appealing.

This is indeed a very pleasant capture with all these green coconuts. The people in the picture seem to be quite unaware of your camera, they add a very calm feeling and also good colours.

Nice scene from daily life.
I like frame and superb colors.
Excellent reportage photo.

Hi Satya, Beautiful composition with these fresh green coconuts and the family on the right side. It is a pity that part of the hands and the coconut gone into the frame and you are not able to crop it out because that family. Nevertheless, it is still a very present picture with great angle and good light along with clarity. Thank for sharing

enorme successo per te su TE e più che meritato!
Il tuo è un grande contributo di quotidianità, di cultura orientale! Belle scene semplici ma ricche di colori e luce! Complimenti e continua così!
ourania (33607) 2014-05-09 23:54
both your picture and note make coconut water very appealing, you created a good and effective advertisement:) I like very much the perspective and tight framing of your composition, you describe the scene boldly and with superb details. The colours are lovely, your light management was so apt in this pleasant shade. The people enrich the interest of your presentation and make it so meaningful. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,
delpeoples (53697) 2014-05-12 19:56
Hello dear Satya
Another beautiful part of daily life, taken with excellent composition skills and light management. I love the vivid green tones of the coconut and how it contrasts with the surrounding earthy tones. The lady is very beautiful in her traditional garb. Not an easy one to compose with the coconut and armless hands in the scene on the right, but maybe that was left in deliberately as you wanted to include the people seated in the background? In any case, an excellent photo.
Thanks for sharing and I wish you a lovely day
abmdsudi (44856) 2014-05-28 20:38
Full of vibrancy just leaps off the screen with array of colours in them, the layout is great with the enterprising woman really steals the show taken from the best viewpoint to emphasize depth and perspective. The contrasting colors add the impact nicely, a fine street shot adequately exposed. Well done, tfs
