In Indian cities you see a lot of people sleeping in the street. On busy markets, at road works, on rickshaws. It does not matter, you can sleep everywhere. This man had much faith in the weather…. Fortunately for him it remained dry. Ingrid
Now that I use lightroom something went wrong with the conversion. A loss of colour was the result. I know now how to solve the problem. In the WS section I placed the version I intended to place on TE, Ingrid

Hi Ingrid! This is an interesting photo that gives some info about the Indian culture. The colors are wonderful. The personnage looks interesting and is well surrounded by the yellow bricks wall and gray sidewalk. I'm personally an adept of siesta. I just wish I could have one everyday. Maybe our society would be more relax if everybody could have, at will, a siesta every afternoon!!! TFS!

Let's hope it doesn't start to rain or someone throws the dishwater in the gutter ;-). That is a very interesting detail that really makes this picture!! :-)

It's a good example of poverty in India. I like all the details around the man : the drainpipe just above his head, the bumps of the wall,... But I have some reserves aboute the choice of the frame, the title ("siesta" evokes pleasure, and I'm not sure that this man is sleeping for his pleasure) and finally the choice of color. In this case, I think that a contrasted B&W can improve the feeling of a harsh life. I add a WS to give you an idea of what I mean.
Have a nice day,

you find a nice ambient light here that embedd the man in a soft way which makes the picture more of calm and still image.

Hell Ingrid, this is a striking image. I'm not sure I would dare to sleep with my head to near a drain! I love the colours and tones (despite you saying it was a mistake) the composition is good here too as is your POV. Very Good image!
