I met this beautiful woman in a small village outside Jodhpur.
I was walking around and when we got eye contact she beckoned me over and invited me to her cottage for a cup of chai.
She did not speak any english but in spite of that we had a few cheerful hours.

Very interesting pano setting used. And it works! Colours and sharpness throughout image are great and the exposure's superb, capturing that milky liquid in great quality and detail. TFS.

Hi Tina, excellent shot. the large horizontal composition is really amazing 'cause it remember the large amrs of the woman!
fantastic focus, fantastic colours and many dynamism on the milk and the fire.
great light too.
one of my favorite image of your collection.

Nice. It really brings me into the space. But is there any chance of eliminating that distraction in the bottom left? (A crop would be the easiest, but cloning it out would work, too).

Hi Tina. Great shot, the colors are good and the scene is interesting. The outstretched arms of the woman are perfectly multi-tasking. Good crop too. Great work.

Women in Indiaare very polyvalent, she can do so many things that men should do. A nice picture, I like this pano format and the diferent lights you have caught. It is really a nice one.

Very strong composition with this woman stretched over the photograph..
This is also full of motion with her both activities: the milk in one hand and the other one busy too.

a very nice shot of the woman making tea. nice apparel, great timing to get the posture perfectly. i like the ornament she wears in her nose, typical of her tribe, maybe. a very beautiful post.

Great crop i love the use of the panoramic frame. A perfect example that women can do two things at once! Great daily life capture.

Lovely colour saturation and composition. Nice light and textures everywhere. I'm desiring to go to RAjastan, if nothing wrong happens I'll go this year! I can almost smell the chai!
markoci (3927) 2006-03-10 11:35
this is quite awesome tina. good job on the metering, the compo, the colours (oh that fire!) is to die for. nothing but praises here.

What a beautiful story backed up with this lovely photograph.
She seems to be multi-tasking fluidly...something we can expect of these inspiring women of India.
RADEEH (2802) 2006-03-12 20:23
A touching story and a well composed shot.
Here i love the timing you got this one.
And the framing also outstanding.
Thanks for this warm shot.

Hi Tina, I return back in time with this shot, but it is so beautiful that I just must comment on it :).
I think you made an excellent choice here with the format as it even strengthens the effect of the outstretched arms of this colourful lady. I like the background wall a lot as it makes stand out the foreground so well. The colours are a true delight here and it's really beautiful how you captured the lady pouring the milk in. Absolutely marvelous image and to me maybe your best shot (although I'm sure that one is still to come! :) Sabine

Excellent shot! I like composition, your crop and natural colors.
Real daily life! Wonderful portrait!
Best regards. Tanya.

Hola Tina, a very interesting photo of the daily life of this beautiful woman, that is concentrated in making chai. I congratulate you by the capture at the excellent moment at which she overturned the milk from an earthenware vessel to another one, colors and the light.
An affectionate greeting.
gabrielpat (7163) 2006-08-13 19:43
this is really a good shot.i like the position of the lady making two things at the same time.The colours are perfect,and the sharpness too.really well done.
scalerman (26900) 2006-09-23 18:03
Tina: scanned the gallery. Found this amazingly symmetrical and colorful shot. Everything is just right except perhaps I would have minimized the frame. A minor quible to a great pic. regards, c
