A shot taken on the ghat of Lake Pushkar catching the last of the fading light just before the sun dropped behind the hills and the temptation to capture was a hard one to resist.
I am sure those admirers enjoyed the warm sunset light as much as I enjoyed being there for that shot!

Dobar tekst, lep pogled i trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast i perspektiva, lepo pokazani ljudi i trenutak zalaska sunca.

A lovely image with the image of the sun about to set on the horizon, ideal color tones in the sky and its projection in the reflection pond with dyeing color, backlight all these people make the image very alive and vital.
Nice color, in these natural tones.
Also both sharpness, such as lighting are great.
Well taken photo. I Like
Enjoy a nice day.

You positioned yourself well to capture the setting sun between two well balanced groups of people.ö The evening colours are beautiful but the people gathered here to wath the sunset will stay in my memory longer. This is not a very easily exposed view but you managed to make these people more than just dark silhouettes, even capturing the fine red tone of the veil in the centre very elegantly.

Nice scene, nicely light.
Good frame and interesting colours.
Photo has climate.

You're capturing well this scene by a good timing, a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the evening glow which is covering the calm lake, hill and sky. You also catch well the moment that the sun sets in a horizon. And, the residents gathering the lakeside look like to taste this evening glow.

Salam Abmdsudi. Of course if we could hear the plaintive sounds of the saranghi, the feeling of peace and contemplation would be heightened even more.There is something in sunsets and human behaviour at such times which is the same all over the world- we become quiet, meditative, more gentle as we watch an end to something. Wonderful colours and emotive light. Top result. Salam. Klaudio.

namaste, a nice frame here, illuminated nicely with the soft last light of Sun... Excellent colour tone of the sky which is contrasting finely with those semi-silhouettes in FG. A very good composition indeed. Tfs.

What a beautiful moment there. I like the peaceful mood and the warm sunlight over the scene. Good catch!

Excellent exposing for the sky has nicely captured the colors of the sunset and made a good light reflections and excellent silhouettes of the people.
Very well done,
Oceania (5202) 2014-02-27 6:39
Yes, the sunset is gorgeous. But the great thing about this picture is the silhouettes of people in orange color. We still can see them in different postures, yet dark enough that it only shows the outlines.
SnapRJW (31629) 2014-02-27 8:32
Hello Abmdsudi - People all over the world are drawn to the beauty of a sunset and here we see a lovely example of an event close to a man's heart. The silhouettes have sufficient detail to enable is to build up a picture of who the onlookers are and I particularly like the light passing through the diaphanous orange cloth of the head-covering; its colour tones in with the lovely colours of the sky and its reflection. Warm regards Rosemary
Silvio1953 (151743) 2014-02-27 9:08
Ciao Abmdsudi, fascinating sunset, lovely composition with nice people, great atmosphere, wonderful warm colors and splendid light, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio
ourania (50609) 2014-02-27 9:53
I'm glad you and the other people were there to enjoy this beautiful sunset and I appreciate that you captured the scene so nicely for us to enjoy the sight and the moment with you. The setting sun is an irresistible focal point for everyone, the setting ahead is very lovely too. I like very much the sense of depth and the space among the people. The subtlety of the warm tones is wonderful and I also like the soft touch of the light on the people, who aren't just silhouettes. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

nice the evening glow with the dark silhouettes of the pilgrims to outline perfect against the charmy sky.The created reflections complete perfect the whole scenery.
Romano46 (18472) 2014-02-28 2:47
la magia dei tramonti indiani appare in tutta la sua suggestione in questa tua foto nella quale tra le silhouttes sembrea anche di vedere un suonatore.
Belli i colori e curata come sempre nei dettagli tecnici.
Buon fine settimana
eldancer1 (36343) 2014-02-28 7:52
Beautiful ending of I hope was a beautiful day for those people. I like the composition and even though I know the arrangement of those people was random it looks like it was intentional. Good use of the silhouette and nice details with wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
krzychu30 (15512) 2014-03-01 8:15

Another very beautiful and lovely picture!
Special regards (again) to the management of light, colors and composition!
A very good idea and a great photo job!
TFS - congrats,
PaulVDV (31949) 2014-03-02 7:15
Beautiful silhouettes of the visitors in warm clothes - there are even some musicians - in front of the pink sky and its reflected colours in the lake.
It's still clear enough to get a good view of the many white buildings around the water.
Best regards, Paul
