~ Preparing For Rituals | Chhat Puja- V ~
Some of the ladies are waiting for the time. Some are busy in preparing those 'dala's (those buckets of fruits and flowers) for puja.
Photo captured at some time ago of sunset, at the eve of Chhat Puja. It is celebrated at the morning of the day with rising sun and with the setting sun at previous day. Chhat is a Puja while people use to worship God Sun.
~ Enjoy It ~

A colourful image full of life. Ideally framed and with excellent saturated colours and very good clarity. I especially like the light and reflections.

a lovely photo, with a simple and eloquent composition that shows us how the people spend the day enjoying and celebrating the sunlight. I like how the offerings extend across the frame, the ladies' attitude is interesting and the whole scene with its details and reflections is clear and vivid against the smooth, contrasting backdrop. I think that the colour of the frame is a little distracting, even though it can't compete with the brightness and colour of your photo. You captured the light superbly, celebrating it in your own way:) Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great week,

sei molto bravo nel riprendere queste scene di vita lungo il fiume e lo fai sempre creando composizioni interessanti e ricche di colore.
Anche in questa hai saputo gestire molto bene la scena con ricchezza di dettagli che aiutano a capire le particolarità della vita e delle usanze dell'India.
Ciao e buona domenica

a tender and wonderfully informal image of this amazing ceremony. So much colour and beautiful detail here. Compelling and expressive imagery!

The magical light shows the colours of this scene at its best. The tight framing shows us how carefully the offerings are prepared. The woman bending down makes this a very special composition and one I enjoy very much. Pin sharp and very well exposed in the harsh light conditions.
Kind Regards, Ann

Quelle belle composition, lumineuse et très colorée sur les rives du plan d'eau où les femmes en costumes font des offrandes.Un cadrage très bien réalisé.

Colors and colors... Clarity and composition...
Again one of those beauties! For a change, this time in a tight frame but as marvelous as others in the series.
Waiting for more.

Wow, how could anyone not enjoy a photo like this. Its such a warm and beautiful light that you captured, not to mention all the colors too.
So attractive and cultural too.

A shot so far removed from my experiences it has by its obviously colourful and cultural nature a huge charm Subhendu. Fantastic little details can be seen, the red-painted feet for example. The riverside setting adds a clean and uncluttered backdrop allowing the main subject to be fully enjoyed without distraction. Marvelous. Warm regards Rosemary

A colorful shot of this festival from Bihar.
I like the reflection of the goodies on the water. lovely shot of the photogenic festival with superb colors, clarity and contrasts.

I remember this place. This is another beautiful shot of these women and their offerings. As with the other photos the light and colours are very good. The low sun creates a wonderful atmosphere.

Long time no see! I love this photograph for its colour and its composition: the triangle of people and baskets of fruit pointing to and stopping at the stooping figure. And no other background distractions. A real masterpiece, though I'm not convinced about the frame!
