Not an ideal condition for photography. Everyone are moving frequently, very low light where candles and diyas are the only source of light, and the gathering of people (devotees). The clarity and sharpness suffers here due to absence of tripod. I think one can't use his tripod in such gathered and busy place. Captured at Dayamoyee Kalibari, Berhampore at diwali evening. The result is not so good but I like this mystic atmosphere with the motion blur of the people with the famous temple (terracotta) as background. [You can see some candles and diyas enlighted by some devotees and the wooden harikath at foreground.]
So, I cann't resist myself to post this 'Diwali shot'. Hope you will bear the handheld result, feel the atmosphere and enjoy it.
HAPPY DIPAWALI TO ALL VIEWERS. MAY THE DIYAS AND CANDLES OF DIWALI ENLIGHTED YOUR PATH AND GIVE YOU A HAPPY AND PROPEROUS LIFE.

la luce delle candele crea un magico effetto e una grande atmosfera.
Lo spirito religioso viene espresso al massimo dall'immagine,

This is an interesting subject taken in the real country; it's showing the subject action.
You gave us an interesting idea without blur effect.

The lights bring a mystic atmosphere to this interesting daily life composition. The lack of sharpness does not matter here; indeed it contributes much to the mood of the shot. Thanks for sharing.

Happy Dipawali to you, we in Singapore celebrated the event yesterday 6th Nov, and I am quite familiar with this colorful event which may differ slightly in India, I think. Good capture without flash creating nice ambient and mood with slight blur of that boy to show movments. Good viewpoint by placing the fireworks at strategic place, and the glow illuminating the devotee enhances the beauty. Good work my friend, Congrats, TFS
