This picture is of bengalees' one of the biggest festival Durga Puja, and this is at my village. Although probably its a bit different in City. Here on the day of Saptami morning, the "GHOT TOLA" happens.
After the priest does this GHOT TOLA, they come back from the pond (on which the GHOT TOLA happens). Ladies along with a few children and old men pour water, milk on the road through which the GHOT will go to the temple.
I have tried to capture that scene. Hope you like this. Its a pure village puja.

nice the snapshot from the Durga Puja festival with all these women to passing by in front of your lens.I like the colourful clothes of the natives as the original of the rural area of West Bengal.The upper part of the image,the sky. is a bit over-light.

I love the colourful procession of women & children in their saris & dresses. Good sharpness & framing, but I think I would have cropped out the white sky. It adds nothing. Perhaps a slight cw rotation too. A wonderful daily life scene from India. Tfs!

Its really a different type of presentation of Durga puja. most of us tried to present the festival with the statue, but u bring the people forward.
very well execution, but still may be you can do much better.

une procession très colorée, j'admire toujours les couleurs des tissus des pays asiatiques, cela permet d'avoir un joli panel de couleurs face à un ciel bien blanc.
Des pays qui ont encore des coutumes, c'est bien.

Ever since I visited India (Chandigarh, Delhi, and Agra) in July 2010, I have been fascinated by the United States of India — polyglot, colorful, exotic... This is a superb shot of the parade of worshipers of Durga Puja.
Incidentally, my website recently received a "flag counter." Can I impose on you to click on the site and plant another flag of India in the process.

A great colorful daily life shot via panfocus!
Very well considered and perfect framework.
Clear and sharp presentation is as usual as you.

A colourful village procession photo. Even though you can't see many faces you can see the interactions. As with Chris (ChrisJ) I think that a little CW rotation would be good to get the horizon more even and, as well the sky is blown out. I've also done a workshop as I don't think Chris's sky worked.

Nice image, but I would have liked if you showed us the actual ritual. Love the green of the rice crops as a BG...Guess the image is slightly tilted as well :-)

I love these colourful events in India . This is very well captured, and your note explains well what is happening. People seem to be eager and happy at what they are doing.
I have done a WS, in which I have straightened the lines.
I hope you like it.
