She did not pose for me....
A simple portrait, the first image of diff posture was posted about two years ago. It's an accidental shot at the end Camel Festival in Thar desert Bikaner, when I came across some TV crew members from local station were busy filming few models for commercials.
Her momentary pause in the process allowed me to steal few good shots from some distant using my faithful 300mm lens. The mixed lighting came from soft low warm light over the cold desert aided by diffuse artificial lights coming from the supporting strobes.

My first thought went to Bollywood, and your note confirms I wasn't entirely wrong. She looks far too beauiful and well adorned to be an ordinary village girl. That doesn't make this photo less attractive. You captured her perfectly as she was lifting her red veil, giving us an indirect lovely smile. The TV crew provided you with a perfect light and you created a perfectly blurred, neutral background.

stunning portrait of the young woman in her finest outfit. The colors are gorgeous and very eye catching especially placed against quite pale and plain background. Nicely captured moment of lifting the veil and pretty face expression.
Well framed and with excellent focus.

Salam Abmdsudi. What a glorious moment- youth in its prime bedecked in all the gold and jewels. The light is something to dream about as most of us would not be in a situation where we would have natural and strobe light. Absolutely gorgeous image perfectly timed. Best wishes. Klaudio.

Très jolie cette jeune dame. Elle est parée de très nombreux bijoux qui si ils sont vrais doivent valoir une petite fortune.On dirait chez nous qu'elle est décorée comme un arbre de Noel.

At first look, this struck me: the beautiful glow that surrounds her. Wonderful moment captured.
yquem46 (38750) 2014-03-04 6:48
Excellent side light playing with her veil
Typical Rajasthani jewelry and gipsy look as many women in Pushkar during the Camel Mela
best regards, have a nice evening

A very beautiful girl with very interesting piercing. Her total jewellery is also very impressive. Very good colours and an interesting note!

Beautiful girl, beautiful face.
Good frame and super colors.

It must be so rewarding to capture a scene like this without a pose, beauty really is the word. At first glance, the scene is beautiful because of the intense decoration and amazing colors of gold and red, those things that many see as the trappings of beauty. But even aside or mom these material elements, the true beauty of this shot is in this woman's eyes. I feel we can see her soul through this, and it's a happy and proud soul. She is a beautiful woman, ith or without the glamour, and your photo has done fine justice to both the materialistic and the human elements of this scene. Beautiful.
All the best

a real treat, to come across a beautiful model and setting well prepared for a professional shooting, with crew and lights and all. You made the most of the opportunity, I remember another, tighter portrait from this setting in your gallery. Your lens captured a fine expression, a graceful posture and amazing detail on the fantastic jewellery. The warm tones of the garment, the jewellery, the skin tone and the light have been rendered superbly; the cool, soft backdrop and the tight framing set them off wonderfully. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

I could have sworn this was a posed portrait - not your usual style, admittedly - until I read your explanatory note. It's (she's?) absolutely beautiful!
Graal (101108) 2014-03-05 12:53

She is a real beauty. Among all your portrait pictures. This is one of my favorites. The red dress is extremely appealing. The golden jewelries are shining and beautiful. It's absolutely a great capture.
eldancer1 (33901) 2014-03-06 7:41
Wow! Indeed so beautiful! Love that Mona Lisa smile, makes one wonder what is in her mind. Good lighting and sharp details. You did a wonderful job capturing the color red something I have problem with. Very well done, tfs.
I like taking pictures of balloons but I stay on the firm ground--don't like the height.

adramad (42015) 2014-03-07 11:22
Wonderful portrait, captured with elegance and stunning detail, very pretty model, which suits her very well that red sari, surprising the amount of jewelry she wears adorning, but also contributes to its embellishment.
Ideal this palette.
Very good both luminosity and sharpness.
Well seen and done better.
Have a good weekend.
siudzi (34141) 2014-03-07 23:21

Ciao dear Abmdsudi
A wonderful, characteristic photo. The veil has had a very particular and magical effect. I also like the mysterious look that this lady has. Excellent shallow depth of field too. Great shot, thanks for sharing.
adores (42267) 2014-04-01 14:05
Not posing for you, but simply great! You captured the movement so well. I like the light, the colours, the jewelry and her smile. A great portrait! Rajasthan is amazing for that!
Waylim (25444) 2014-04-14 14:14

Namaste. Will catch up later.

ikeharel (65205) 2014-11-08 1:08
Wonderful pose and a smile you got, Abmdsudi, charming picture.
The red color has a stunning effect on this image - used superbly the light, details shown beautifully - especially the golden jewellery accessories she was wearing.
Impressive and yes, she is a beauty.
macjake (63172) 2015-04-25 7:19
haha...I was just going through some of my recent India photos, and I have almost the exact same photo as this one :)
different woman of course, but same idea.
good on you to sneak in a shot with the long tele lens, they really do come in handy don't they :)
pretty woman, pretty jewels, and the colors are striking for obvious reasons.
