Don't tune your monitor, it's a CMYB or RGB soft proofing.
I think I won't hurt my shoulder trying to open such already wide open doors as saying that India is a country of colors...sounds naff, eh?
You wouldn't imagine... it's like the supermarket of colors. The general store where all the colors of the world come from. the mother or the queenbee of colors.
It gets so easy to find any color you like that sometimes you must imagine some tricks to enhance the game. Here I stood, looking to get within one frame all the primary colors.
In Karauli winding streets, it took me say 7 minutes...honest...

That is what I noticed with photos from India ... vibrant exciting colours ... this photo certainly reinforce that observation. TFS.

Lets forget CMYB or RGB..
Lovely blue wall & typical Indian wall full with millions of adds & campaign.
Women are in motion. Like Govt. commercial for awareness of family planning or going out for vote.
You ventured all small alleys of Karauli!!!
Photo having lot of heart & feelings Luko.
Luko more I see this thumbnail after some interval, it is real warm toning..
What the real photo is showing, rather thumbnail is more stronger than that. It really poops up on screen.

Indeed, the way it must have felt for Claude who, when not in India, lives in Iceland... a tremendous difference, no? Yes, these colours are intoxicating and your shot is great whether in cmyk or rgb mode, it is breathing colour again, which I so long for as i have said before on a prev. posting.
It is perhaps a more understated shot than your usual ones, but one which still carries ample interest to captivate, such as the 3 women (love the number), the old crumbling blue-white wall with decaying writing, the wide-angle lens that makes the shot burst in a pleasing way.
Good night from a continuing -29C Ottawa...

Terrific composition, with strong shadows and slanting light that emphasize all these color patterns.
I find this the most daunting challenge...all this color!!

You are (of course)right when you said India is a country of colors and I will add as well, the land of smiles.
In here, you caught a great light and the movement of women whose seem to be in a hurry. Colors and framing are good too.

Luko: always bringing a fresh angle or 'prism' perhaps, to everything my eyes grown perhaps to accustomed to. A fresh game as you say, to an all-to-common Indian country scene. Fine stuff. regards, c

you used the window as a painter uses his palette!
A good idea, and well performed.
Yes, India is heaven for a photographer looking for colors, so colors for many people are the main characteristic of India in a superficial way of thinking.
Ciao, thank you!

Yes, colors are there, light is awesome. India must surely be a magic place for every street photographer. My CMOS would go mad absorbing such hues... In terms of composition your image is good. It got three visible women (the magic number), they form a nice triangle (and in perspective) but I am still missing some more than that here. I know, I know, you can't always be passing a subliminal message through photography... Colors justify this one, but that hidden baby is a giant crime here. :) Nice shot.

c'est drole de lire ta note car c'est exactement le sentiment que j'avais, celui d'une pluie, que dis je, d'une explosion de couleurs... retour de sohrab avec une photo extraordinaire et retour de l'inde...

great shot, not only the amazing compo of shadows and colours, but I also enjoy the expressions of these ladies - they seem 'determined' to do something, walking the street in their cool apparel. very well taken, marvelous street photography.

Fantastich shot again ,i like it so much.
and indeed, what colours !!!!!
faubry (35405) 2007-01-26 18:05
hello Luko, impressionnantes ces couleurs très fortes, le triangle des trois femmes, dommage pour le bb que l on ne voit pas assez, le mur si bleu, les ecritures passées, une chouette composition, oui l' Inde est le pays idéal pour les couleurs, mais on peut les trouver si on veut dans d autres endroits, alors elles peuvent être plus douces...
très belle et forte image
tu pars bientôt pour Andaman?

SPlendid title, Luko, and abslutely the perfet pictre to open a debate on color profiles... Again I find shades of Alex Webb in the strong black shadow on the left contrasted with the saturated colors and the strong sunlight. I like the dynamism of the women7s forward momentum.
All the best,
Francis (Je reviens de New York aujourdh'ui meme)

You're doing a good job of bringing out the brighter colours of this land. I'm used of only the earthy colours, but we've seen pink, blue and now these primary colours. Nicely done.

Hi LUko.....i think i will be very happy to visit a country so coloured!!!.......
Clever clever this composition with strong and beautiful colours!
Mistral (15402) 2007-01-29 13:20
yes, you've definitively right!
Colours are India!
Your PoV is great with wide lens and dinamicity of the walking women.
