I took his shot at an engagement ceremony at one of the towns in central Rajasthan. What attracted me was the variety of bright colors - typical characteristic of Rajasthan.
There are many elements in the picture that showcase the culture of this region.

Superb, rich scene of a ceremony, colors are coming from everty corner, especially the women's, just missing some sharpness, and there is a tilt, from the angle you took the view.

this is a lovely and colourful motive.
I like to look at this - for me very exotic - ceremony and the beautiful saris.
I like your country so much and hope to come back sometimes. I loved Rajasthan.
Thanks for your nice photos, they give me nice memories. Bye

A very interesting scene... I love the colors but what I love even more is the fine way that it shows a culture that I almost don't know... I find it very interesting to see how men and woman are seperatet... I also enjoy the very relaxed atmosphere in this picture... TFS and for bringing me in to a very different culture than my own... Ina...

wonderful colours - the women are certainly prettier birds than the men. Why are the women on one side and the men on the other? There is a lot going on here to entertain the eye, wish is was a little sharper.

Colourful Image....Nice POV...
I like the lively crowd shown well...
Bit of contrast & sharpness would have helped it to be better.
