The Bangle Seller :In this image you can see a bearded man selling bangles and other ornamental mementos on the street of Calcutta.The man's cubbyhole residential accommodation is just behind him in the frame.The bemused looks on the bearded bangle seller can be deceitful at times.I liked the colors on the items up for sale.Hope you like them too.

A wonderful moment captured with a nice expression of the sadhubaba seller. Super colors and clarity in this very lively daily-life shot. The composition is also excellent.
It is a great find. Very well done.

I really like your street-shots from Calcutta. They are interesting and colourful and bring me so many nice memories. As for the colourfulness this is as good as it gets. I like your light management which has given the view a fine smoothness and still very good contrasts.

Good evening Farhat,
Colorful goods on display on the street, with the guy seller on side.
His face expression conveys some suspicious look over an object or a person on the opposite side.
Fine clear view and vivid tones on a daily-life on town.
Have a nice Sunady,

bangles are an important part of the attire and culture in India, and of course they always look great in photos too. here we get to see a wide range of items and colors. Maybe if the seller smiled more his sales will rise :) haha
fine cultural photo

very nice the portrait of the bangle seller as he sit in front of his colourful merchandises.A great 'portrait' of the daily life of this man as an excellent reportage shot from the daily life of the citizens of Calcutta.
Heva a good week,Danos

You're capturing well this scene by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the stallkeeper in a roadside and colorful bangles and other ornamental mementos. It seems to the trade rooted in a life and religion.
emka (98628) 2014-01-04 23:36
I love such view of the Indian seller, not important what they sell - colourful bangles, or spices, ar textil for saree.. always very colourful. Interesting curious look. And a pale blue walls look like from Jodhpur.
SAll the best in 2014

I love the bright colors and the shine from the utensils in the frame. Great daily life capture from the streets of Kolkata.
snunney (99942) 2014-01-05 2:43
The expression on his face is rather tantalising, one wonders what he is looking at and/or thinking. You have captured him and his wares very well indeed. A well composed image with excellent colours and sharpness.
rbassin (23043) 2014-01-05 6:01
une belle photo de ce vendeur de bracelets.
Belle présentation de l'étalage plein de souvenirs et de couleurs.
Noel_Byrne (31410) 2014-01-05 6:54
The colors here are superb, and the mans wares looks like a treasure trove, with the golden bowls and many colored items. His expression is excellent too, he looks like he is watching somebody quite intently, perhaps a potential customer? Great that you included the mans home too, giving an excellent sense of the mans life. Great shot.

Another wonderful, bright and colorful street market scene. There must be countless photo opportunities along these streets, and there's always something unique and intriguing at each stop. So many delightful textures in this shot, I'm not even sure where to begin looking!? :) Always like that you include the owner of such fares, it adds that personal touch and human element that helps connect us to the locale. All the best wishes for 2014. Take good care.

Another wondrful street scene. Very colourful and a good perspective a little bit from above. You make very good use of the lighting that is not too strong. This makes it possible to see every detail and there are no shaded areas. TFS and have a nice day!
clic (17129) 2014-01-06 5:48
In my country those colourful stands are called 'flea market' displays because of the wide-ranging items in the same showcase.
The difference in your post is the look of those adobe walls and the home-made door stopper!
Thanks for showing such exotism.

The gentleman has a nice collection bangles for sale, I hope they are not made in China. Nicely captured with nice details and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
ourania (46192) 2014-01-06 7:42
this is a delightfully busy and very interesting daily life picture. I like very much the point of view, slight perspective and tight framing you chose for this portrait in context. The colourful display in front of the vendor's threshold is lovely but even the textures and details in the background make an attractive part of this presentation. The vendor's expression is intriguing and leads us to expand the context of the frame with our imagination. Lighting and clarity are most efficient. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
SWEETFREEDOM (24621) 2014-01-06 21:17
Yes very nice the colors of the items he is selling. Good sharpness and light too.
Waylim (25502) 2014-01-06 22:42
Another very good daily life image on the market. A good portrait of the merchant, but the best are the colorful products he has on display to sell.

hello, a nice daily life scene here. The composition is good but it would be better if you go with a lower POV (in the same level of that man's eyes). Overall it is fine. Good details and beautiful colours. Enjoyed it. Tfs.

Another colourful Indian scene! Seems he has lots of varieties to sell. I like the serious expression on his face and the the colourful bangles displayed on trays on bricks. A simple and well captured daily life scene!
