Jodhpur is known as the " Blue City "of Rajasthan: True, because when looking at the old streets surrounding the great Merengarh fort, an observer can see an agglomeration of blue houses down the hill. But the problem is that there are not whole streets of these, blue painted houses are scattered here and there. This is why after trying to locate them from the fort I decided to go down and get closer. I found a typical neighbourhood, smelly, steep and narrow alleys ,carved inside a labyrinth , open sewers running down on all sides, lots of cows ,lots of barking stray dogs, but still the area has a lot of Indian charm and is really colorful in places. . So when I discovered this cozy corner , I decided to wait until someone whould show up. My camera was placed on a tripod, I probably waited over 10 minutes until this woman came up.

Wonderful lesson and photo. I love... everything.
REally this, as a lot of your photos and notes, this is a great lesson (and that 10 minutes waiting too).

You found a lovely place, full of vivid colours and imagines your shot by waiting for a person to come from the right (to get her face). Your patience was rewarded by this typical indian lady.
Well organized and realised

Nice to see you posting, I think the color palette here is very good thanks to this figure in yellow contrasting with the overall blue tones.

Je vois que ton voyage en Inde va être propice à de nouveaux et superbes cliché à l'instar de celui-ci avec sa superbe complémentarité de couleurs.
J'aime le petit flou sur la femme (spécialement sur le bas de la jambe) qui donne une belle impression de vie et de mouvement

Genel galeriye bakar bakmaz bu fotoğraf hemen dikkat çekiyor. Gözalıcı duvar renkleri arasından Hintli kadının süzülüşünü hem çok iyi bir açıdan, hem de güzel bir zamanlamayla yansıtmışsınız. Elinize sağlık İzzet Bey. Saygılar, sevgiler, Tolga

Nice to see a posting from you. Waiting for the woman to show up in the posting was recompesated with a colorful contrast with the blue surroundings. The slow shutterspeed allowed to introduce a sense of movement into the picture. Great work

Merhaba İzzet Bey,
Mimari detaylar, renk tonları ve modelinizin duruşu ile harika bir kare olmuş.Çok iyi zamanlama öyleki, modelin hangi merdivene yada kapıya gideceğini bakışlarında yakalıyoruz. Ellerinize sağlık.

Hello Izzet Bey,
The blue and the red, your pov with the woman in yellow makes me think, there is most probably no other pov to make this amazing photo. Just wonderful.
Best personal regards. Salvator.

This is a full of colours and resolution image, exhibiting daily life in Jodhpur but let me say that I would prefer the lady was not blurred.
I don't know if you are pleased with the result or if that was your terminus. The maximum aperture for this lens is 2.8 and you had the means to freeze the movement. One more solution was to increase ISO without losing detail and keeping the f/8 for nice DOF.
May be I am wrong, just telling my opinion!
Remarkable equipment, honestly!

Such a very special blue atmosphere in those streets. Ineresting to see your series. The woman a bit unsharp is no problem for the picture.

colorful composition with very good moving effect. Wonderful color harmony. Congrats.

Brilliant photo! Really looks like something from Steve McCurry's galleries... I like the graphic color and shapes very much. The slight blur on the subject also brings dynamism to the shot!
