This Illusion of Life...
Only fools take pride in their station here,
trapped in a cage of dust, moisture, heat and air.
No need to complain of calamities,
this illusion of a life lasts but a moment".
(Abu Saeed Abil Kheir - Nobody, Son of Nobody)
The call of India, again.
I can't resist
it's time to go back
to dive in colourful market
among ashtonishing people
to be involved again
in whirls of flavours and sounds.
The time has come...
Soon I will return.
Benaulim sunset ordinary scene.

Just perfect! Soft lines, beautiful colors and brilliant composition... Damn it's depressing for other TE members :)

A very romantic picture postcard shot but I liker it so much - what is revealed about the person through his posture and form - it's just absolutely delightful - so nicely seen and so well executed - a very professional shot!
best wishes Kev

Ciao Luca. Beautiful impression of the transient nature of the world and life. The poem is so fitting. The gentle presence of the sun and the man and his gestures gestures which appear otherworldly, give the image a haunting and sad essence. The net is a wonderful symbol of the idea of illusion as we get caught , snared in the present and its seemingly crucial imperatives. A moving creation Luca. Have a safe trip and I am sure that you will return with inspirational images. Regards. Klaudio.

This is straight out of your bottom drawer Luca, but nonetheless a classic. The dark silhouetted figure postioned perfectly in the frame and his charming casual posture.
i know what you mean the call to return to India is always so strong.

belle photo de cette scène de coucher de soleil sur ce jeune homme qui range ses filets, pour un peu il prendrait ce soleil doux dans ses filets.
Belle prise qui nous prend dans ses mailles et nous enveloppe dans ces couleurs.

And what a result you got here! The old way with film!
Wonderful toning and even slight details in the silouette. Nice one!!

Wonderful sunset composition.
Lovely peaceful scenery, wonderful silhouette and purple/orange colours.

per fortuna ogni tanto mi ricordo di fare un salto nella tua gallery: ti rinnovo i complimenti perchè le tue foto sono veramente belle.
Questa è formidabile, un mix di bellezza fotografica e abilità tecnica che si unisce ad un messaggio (evidenziato dalla silouette smagrita) che stringe il cuore.
Va nelle mie preferite.

A wonderful composition.Everything is perfect here and the red/purple tones are fantastic.

I like it though my preferance would be to capture a bit higher on the top, to give a way to the sky and get immpression of wast ocean in the back, this was subjective oppinion, shot is really good.
Lovely note too, deep and inspiering.
