Photo taken nearby the bus stand in an abandoned, derelict building. A little too dark, but you take what you can get.

Very good photo with also a very good equipment!
Excellent colors, well done!

The colors are so rich> The women are great and the facial expression of the one in pink is as if she is scoloding you (her socks/stockings are a bit strange). It is interesting to see the xpressive face on the poster and he becomes almost another person in this composition. The composition is very good as is the framing.
Have a coke and a smile...

hi caleb, despite the enjoyable view and overall nice effect this is quite a serious photo showing the contrasts of life: the person on the left having her toes oh the feet decorated with jewelery and the one in the right having the feet deformed by some kind of disease;
very good, deep picture with slightly, imho, controvertial title

Nice catch. Good colours nad sharpness and have you seen the feet of the woman on the right?? Well captured moment.

Globalization shots are always winners, it's now time to shoot hem as they will perhaps be mundane in 5 or 10 years time (they are already in a few countries).
He the Coke signs really enhances the scenes with that loop going straight down to the woman's face. very nice.
btw, I'm late but i've noticed you're now shooting on more serious tools now (even got yourself the ultimate 24/70!)... how long have you been traveling? Are you ever going home somewhere?

Hi Caleb, what a great photograph. The colourful women and the Coca Cola sign in the back are a great match. Something from modern life meets traditional life.
The one thing is, you mentioned it yourself: it's a bit dark at one side, compared to the other. But yeah, that's just the moment in which you caught them.
Like it a lot, well done.

Fantastic. As Luko says this cross of cultures should be captured now as it may not even be noticed at another time and coca cola is perhaps the ultimate is globalisation. You have inspired me to take my camera for a walk round the city here in Colombo when I finish work today!

very uncommon shot yet simple and nice compositions as we always find in your pictures.

Excellent sharpness color & composition. I like the tight cropping & framing & body language of the 2 main subjects, which seems to suggest withdrawal. Looks like you're really enjoying India.

I don't think it's too dark.. I like like I guess you know why, the BGD...Nice pose they have. The feet of the one on the right seem to be strange..
I must say i also like your new profile's picture..

So much empotion in a simple street shot.
THe clash between the street poverty, and Commercial tycoon like Coca Cola.. Strong.

This is very good Caleb, and not too dark at all I think. I guess I mostly really like the colors, but I also like the look from the woman on the left. It seems she is simply putting up with the crazy foreigner. I would consider doing some burning or similar post processing to dim down the top right hand corner. Good shot.

Very nice composition. Interesting background and people.
Praetzer (2377) 2005-03-08 11:49
No it's not too dark but to the right perhaps a bit light. This can be corrected in photoshop simulating a horizontal degrad filter.
I like the overall redisch tones together with the nearly identical position of the 2 woman.
eleparc (24063) 2005-03-08 18:43
the BG is fantastic as well as the colors.. a very impactful shot caleb! the coke sign makes a lot for this one...
are you happy with your new 20D?
i'll be back soon
ash_parikh (2266) 2005-03-09 2:31
Nice photo, great colours and nice light from one side. The women seems to be waiting for the bus and the look on their face and posture seems interesting and looks like they are wating for long and the position of the hand seems to suggest that they are avoiding the harsh sun on their face.

So you're in India now. Enjoy and be safe.
This picture is very very good. Love the story that it evokes.
