"மெய்வருத்தம் பாரார்; பசி நோக்கார்; கண்துஞ்சார்;
எவ்வெவர் தீமையும் மேற்கொள்ளார்: செவ்வி
அருமையும் பாரார்; அவமதிப்பும் கொள்ளார்
கருமமே கண்ணாயி னார்."
"Never heed body pain; Never heed hunger; Sleepless;
Never Harm others; never seek music to ears; Never embarassed;
The people immersed in work."
Have you ever felt the music inside you while listening to it?... Have you ever felt your heart dancing with you while you are?... And have you felt your breath while framing in your camera?...
This gentleman feels all that & more while immersed in his job.. What do say he is?...
I found him just outside the police station at Tharamangalam. Some how I felt the gopuram & his umbrella symbolic.... Deed that is divine...
Tried HDR from the RAW file...A bit lost on the sky...
Let me know what you think.

Is very amazing picture with the typical elements of an oldfashioned india. The dark umbrella is a balancing element between the temple and the old man giving a sense of the double frame in one. Good work. ihsan

What I find Prem, that is a very lovely picture with different subjects on the same picture, the man beneath, the wall the the left, also the splendid building in background, excellent composition and colours!
I wish you a nice weekend,

Hi Prem, I guess that you used HDR to pick up the details on the man that were in the shade? As you say the sky has suffered a bit. Also the colours on the temple and brick work look a bit oversaturated. Maybe fill flash would have worked better for you. cheers, Steve

Think there are too many details in the photo. Am not able to concentrate on one.
The mopeds parked in the background, the column rising to the left which is just inside the frame etc.
The colours are great.
