Pleasant scene. No one is posing and everything looks natural and authentic.

I love your city pics because you present places frequently seen, in such a delightful way! It is a wonderful daily life scene with the family enjoying a light moment, possibly after savoring Dubey's sweets.
Your indication that the street has been renamed, is a good touch.
Thanks for sharing.

You're capturing well this areet corner by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the bustling city with new shop and old ones. Along with the residents that do shopping or walking down the street, here look to the location of the life breath. And, it's also interesting in traffic sign.

interesting and perfectly composed and timed daily-life scene from Calcutta!
Your image shows us excellently how vibrant the city really is and gives us a foretaste of its real character and atmosphere.
Have a nice day

A well known and much treasured Calcutta environment. Apart from the lively crowd (impossible to avoid) there are so many details on the pavements and the house that are so typical of the city and give me an urge to return. I wonder if that will ever happen. A very enjoyable photo with good colours and sharpness and a superbly captured atmosphere.

Excellent street snapshot in superb light. From very good POV you have nicely captured the family group. Superb exposing, excellent focus control. Well done.

Un coin de rue des plus animé.On dirait que toute la famille s'y est retrouvée. Le point de vue est excellent et offre une belle perspective sur la rue transversale.

Very nice busy street scene, brimming with life. The combination of the people and the many signs give this a very nice gritty urban feeling. I like very much how the orange sign makes the central focal point while all around the many various other colors.
All the best

Vivid and vibrant corner, Farhat.
People on the scene gave extra colorful texture to the picture, which by itself is sharp and clear.

It may not be overrun with people, but this image feels to convey a frenetic atmosphere. There's so many interesting little details to take in here, and I always enjoy a good every day street scene. A fun corner to choose as well, the red colors make this come alive even more....and as a big fan of Coca-Cola, it makes me happy to see it here! :) Plenty of detail, sharp focus and even lighting. Thanks for sharing the part of the local vibe.

You have captured well the action on the street, it is adding life to the scene. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the facade of the store. The good luminosity is making the colors to stand out. Have a nice day.
Subhogen (4067) 2013-12-12 20:22
A well captured daily life moment.
You have so many elements in this photo..a colorful sweet shop and the happy family (presents a good focal point), two friends waiting for someone, a colorful street plaque, a big no entry sign, a pan shop. Very well done my friend. TFS.

An image with this magnificent corner of a street, which shows the everyday environment in the city, the presence of people creates a very lively image.
A colorful perfect very natural.
A bright image with optimum clarity.
Enjoy a good weekend.
UlfE (14641) 2013-12-13 12:18
Really fine street shot. I love the strong red colours and the street life. In particular the family in the foreground that seems to be waiting for someone contributes to the attractiveness of the scene. TFS and have a nice day!
ourania (46320) 2013-12-13 13:04
I like how you placed us in your point of view and made us feel as part of the road traffic, as pedestrians who have briefly stopped and are observing the scene across the street while waiting for the right moment to cross it. You gave us much more time to study the people and details, there's a lot of interesting daily life information to grasp. Depth and sharpness are excellent, the well defined textures, colours and movement make our impression very vivid. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

The fusion of British, American and Indian culture and styles is most evident in this shot with the name of a London district (Waterloo), the US Coca Cola sign and the distinctive Hindi script. Good daily life street scene and the people animate the scene. Tfs!

After being around the world through so many people's photos and seeing glamorous buildings and breathtaking vistas, it is refreshing to see an ordinary street with ordinary people going about their ordinary business.
macjake (68480) 2013-12-20 8:12
you described my thoughts perfectly, in this photo we get to see alot of details of the city and the city life in India. Fun to observe the signs, the colors, the clothes, and the conditions.
