The Colorful Man : This is an old image taken on the bicolor steps of a Temple near Chennai towards the end of December in 2009.The steps of the temple was painted in yellow and red and there was this man wearing a white shirt and a white lungi and sitting on the steps of the temple in bright sunshine.He had thick dark beard and a headful of curly dark hairs.His right hand was touching his left ear in such a way that it looked at one point as if he was holding hard a piece of stone on his left ear or was trying to turn his left ear hard for some kind of pain relief or simply scratching his scalp.Either way,it was a bizarre situation with this trampish character,but yielded a considerably satisfying photograph for all of us.Hope you like it too.

an irresistible photo thanks to its bright and vivid colours that create such an intriguing context for a candid portrait. The tight frame has isolated your subject from any context other that the red and yellow stairs. You've achieved superb sharpness and have placed the man in a perfect place, as his posture gives reference to the space to his right. Amazing the contrast in chromatic qualities, the backdrop is graphically luminous and the man strikingly natural. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

This is an unusual shot, eye-catching, colorful, well composed. The note is also useful.

There's an advertisement series in the U.S. for a cell phone service which carries the tagline "Can you hear me now?"...this would be a perfect match for their campaign! :) Love this bright and colorful shot, these colored steps make for such a great background for this particular capture, the contrast is outstanding. The candid nature of this picture leads to endless possibilities of interpretation...let the imagination begin! Fun and thought inducing imagery. Very well done! Have a wonderful weekend.

These red and yellow painted steps are a unique setting for pictures of everyone who's standing or sitting on them.
I like this compostion with the man placed out of the center of the picture.
From on the thumbnail the vivid colours attract us to have a closer look.
Best regards, Paul

Good morning Farhat,
A stunningyellow and orange painted stairs, well under bright daylight, and the man as a main subject draw most attention of the viewer.
Nice caught the moment, as you described him, one photographer could sit for hours and make a whole theme with his postures.
Fine shot. Have a nice weekend,
Noel_Byrne (21684) 2014-02-08 2:02
a very well composed scene, the view you have taken looks like a national flag with this man featuring proudly inside side. A coo candid scene with excellent colors and light that has created a nice surreal result
thanks as always

Kamilutka (8095) 2014-02-08 4:23
now this is not only picture of the man sitting on the steps - it is truly remarkable work and well done for it.
The yellow and red steps set up attention drawing background and the man sitting on them looks very relaxed and natural in his pose and expression.
Superb composition, colors and sharpness.
I like it a lot!

marabu61 (7601) 2014-02-08 5:30
Now that is an ingenious portrait with a reversed color code. The man in his simple white garb comes out beautifully among the brightly colored stairs. It is very eye-catching indeed.
have a great weekend
annjackman (18303) 2014-02-08 5:34
This is a very strong picture with the man well placed to the side of the frame. The orange and yellow steps make a graphic BG which has great visual impact.
Very well done.
Kind Regards, Ann

On dirait que l'homme est assis sur un drapeau et même qu'il en fait partie. Il semble très occupé à se gratter la tête inconscient à tout ce qui se passe autour. Très bien vu.

You're capturing well this scene by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see the colorful steps of temple and the the free man with dark beard and curly hair sitting on it. It's remarkable for repeated pattern of steps painted by red and yellow.
Subhogen (4065) 2014-02-08 18:45

Galatasaray fans would love this photo. It is indeed quite an extraordinary scene and you have captured it very skillfully.
josepmarin (57595) 2014-02-10 0:23
these bi-colour steps of the temple, with its red and yellow tones, give a high chromatic power to your composition, and the presence of the man, who sits there with his white garment, adds a good contrast into the ensemble.
I like this powerful, vital, and minimalist composition.
A great work.
krzychu30 (15344) 2014-02-10 0:59
brilliant shot my friend!

Very original composition, painted ladder with this so curious, man portrait is highlighted with a magnificent and high quality on the background as colorful.
Wonderful range of colors in very soft tones.
An image with lighting and sharpness are very well managed.

Let me add my congratulations to you too, Farhat.
This photo makes me smile. Perfect composition, the man is not so colorful, but these steps are very picturesque! Do you know these are colors of the Spanish flag. Well captured! I like it! TFS!
clic (14434) 2014-02-13 9:14
Those steps are quite hypnotizing, to the point I had the first impression the man was sitting on a carpet!
His expression and casual posture, so located on a tiers line, compose a fine exotic portrait.
Cricri (102223) 2014-02-17 10:18
Sublime cette composition, excellent portrait très naturel, des couleurs qui flaches des escaliers, très belle réalisation
