Seeking the shade, the three women sat to rest on the top terrace of Kumbalgarh Fort, unfortunately for them, but fortunately for me the sun broke through the clouds again.

some of the essence of India: women in their colorful sarees !
I like their relax posture, their attitude during chating under the 3 arched windows. and the colors no need to mention !
PS thanks for your visits to my recent posts

It's beautifull. 3 arches, 3 women, beautifull colors. It's an amazing vision on Idia.

Poosje niet gezien, maar zal aan mij liggen, hopelijk gaat alles goed.
Eerst dacht ik dat je links iets had croppen, maar hoe langer ik kijk hoe meer die zonnestraal in het beeld past en precies terecht komt op de drie vrouwen. Die boogjes doen ook mooi mee in de compositie en zowel als kleur en kadering zit hij fraai in elkaar.

very good shot. Perfect composition, colours and light. Like the contrast between formal building and relax posture of the girls.

Beautiful and lovely shot, Elaine. "3" is obviously the theme here, with the three chatting ladies, 3 arches, 3 windows, and even the light entering from the upper left is segmented into 3 parts. Very nice how their colorful clothes stand out versus the gentle colors of the background setting. Very well seen and captured.

3 arches, 3 ladies. A ray of light to emphasize their dresses' colours. Nice composition.

Beautiful composition. I always love seeing the beautiful women of India, but of course as you well know, it's difficult to get such an uncluttered scene such as this. Really lovely, and well seen. Perfect clarity and colors. The door frames are a wonderful final touch. Nice work! Regards,

E: a trifecta, maybe a triptich is more accurate - I like your emphasis on the tripartite theme! This is a fine travel canvas. c

Three arches, three windows, three women who speak very naturally and even three sunbeams.
I really like this bright composition which reminds a painting.

Nicely framed and a beautiful scene with the colorful sarees and the ray of light coming in from the top left corner...

Lovelly composition. The light trace coming from the left top corner really adds a touch here. The three ladies sat under these three typical arches are a perfect subject. Their matching colourfull saris add a nice splash of colour against the sand colour suroundings.

You have posted so many fine pictures while I have been away for a few weeks. This one pleases me very much because of the ladies' sarees and the way the colours match. Also because of the interaction of the women, the positions of their arms and their connection with the architecture. And you were certainly lucky to have that light shining on them.
