Another daily life shot taken in Mandawa.
Mandawa is a town in the Shekhawati region, well known for its magnificent havelis (private mansions decorated with magnificent frescoes, which are common in this region). This was just one of the cows we met that morning when we were walking around - just staying at the gate of one of the old houses, waiting for the woman to come outside and give her some food. And she really came, after a few minutes.

Thank you for your kind review.
Yes, she looks as though she is waiting for something great is coming in her way. In India they are respected, so they can enjoy great lives. I like the overall beige tone of this photo. The cows has a very calm and gentle look. How large is this cow. she has a nice life there. The POV chosen is just right to catch a glimpse of her eye. Her skin tone is very smooth. She looks like she is very well taken care of. I hope that you enjoyed the trip.
With my sincere compliments,
Very best regards,

A sweet shot with this waiting cow, I like how it looks longingly through the opening in the old doorway, and your nice angle of view shows off the situation well.
Nice details on the doorway, and I like the creamy colours throughout.

Interesting how animal is competing for equal space in India. Excellent framing, I like the idea very much, at this size that chap is dominating the space nicely with sufficient breathing area on the lhs for good balance with the head fits well in the bright opening, this render a nice contrast. This brightest area draws my eye straight in there everytime I look at it. Attractive daily life capture that worked! Ana. Well done. Best regards

Amazing! In this cow a wise and a little sad sight. Probably a good effect on cows provides the mentality of the Indians and their veneration of cows as sacred animals. I like this soft colors and excellant POV. Photo very well done.
With warm regards,

Um POV muito interessante que faz sentir a proximidade da vaca! A nitidez ficou muito boa também! Não sei se viste mas houve uns elefantes bravos que entraram numa aldeia da Índia e atacaram as vacas e as pessoas!!!

Nice and amazing picture of this cow living quietly her life as we can see in India, cow is part of the daily life. I like the homogeneous tone, the framing, the soft light and the sharpness showing all the details of the door.

Interesting how curious the cow, and streching her head through the door. Sometime they behave like humans.
Nice light and color's applied, with clear view on the door itself - with the iron rails and knobs.

O enquadramento está muito bom, alcançando uma linda imagem. Nitidez também é destaque.

este boi teria um destino bem churrascânico se vivesse no brasil, o preço da carne anda alto e se andasse nas ruas já teria ido para a mesa. haha. é mesmo um dos nossos (deles) nelores brancos.
lindo flagrante, para nós curioso e para eles comum, de um boi a espiar pela porta. bem feito
