~ Has The Spring Really Came? ~
Apparently it seems that the spring has came if you see those colourful flowers. But, there is another scene behind it. If you can watch minutely you can find somebody, belongs to the class, who couldn't enjoy the beauty of spring. Practically they have no free time to enjoy it... I never promote the poverty issue of my country, (and not here too)... It just haunted me when I was watching those beautiful flowers and suddenly she grabbed my attention.
By the way, this is not a spring time photo. I captured it last December near my hometown, and those flowers are of winter reason.
Hope there be the 'spring' one day replacing the 'winter' of their life~~~

thought provoking commentary with this image that makes it all the poignant and evocative. An unusual winter image and a powerful heartfelt message.
Enjoy your weekend - B.

An image of stark contrasts powerfully supported by your note. Excellent control over depth of field; lovley colours and good sharpness.

Un très beau jeu de profondeur de champs dans cette composition.Les fleurs sont d'une grande netteté tandis que la vie continue en arrière plan.

The spring has not yet come in the life of the women and might never come. Crores of people in India have never seen springs in their life.
However, I like that you have raised this issue through your photograph effectively.

I like the idea of your shot with these marigold flowers in sharp focus and the lady in the BG OOF. Well thought out and executed shot, I like it a lot. Very well written note..amio amar desher goribi tule dhorte chai na poschimi der bahoba nebar jonno. Here you have presented it in a very subtle manner. Khub bhalo hoyeche, thanks for sharing.

Bonjour, cher Subhendu,
Encore une image qui fait plaisir à regarder. L'effet photographique est très bien vu dans cette composition.

Quite a contrasting study of life, both colorful and arduous. Spring is in the air, and a pity that not everyone can literally have time to "stop and smell the roses." Without losing sight of the daily life and human element in play, I like your chosen depth of field to bring forth the bright and colorful flowers as a sign of the seasons change. There's sometimes a silver lining to found even under the most undesireable circumstances, and I think this imagery is a strong representation of that ideal. Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Take good care.

Excellent arrangement, superb selective focusing. The flowers in foreground are in very good light & clarity. Nicely framed in portrait format.
Very well done.

A symbolic shot you envisioned, to me it just goes to show the adverse conditions and reality that you managed to record. I particularly like your composition providing a much more visually interesting selective focusing with the beautiful colours of the bloom in contrast to soft blurry bg obviously reflects the opposite that tells a story. Good tones and presentation conveying the message and atmosphere. Fabulous thoughtful reportage style shot, Great work. Congrats
