The Wrinkled Lady Again : I wanted to show the Wrinkled Lady from a different perspective. This time she appears in true colors of life.She can be seen holding a Blackberry cellphone in her hand and looking at an image of herself.The delightful smile is all pervasive and she looks happy with a modern gadget in her hand.Hope things will get better in days to come;better housing,better living in future for all in the villages of India.

Dobar dan, popodne.
Dobar tekst, lep pogled na damu sa mobilnim telefonom ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, ostrina i kontrast, lepo pokazana dama u narodnoj nosnji sa mobilnim telefonom, lepe boje.
Postali smo zavisni od mobilnih telefona, osvojili su ceo svet.
Lepo popodne i sve najbolje.
Good afternoon, this afternoon.
Good lyrics, nice view of a lady with a mobile phone ...
Good time recording, sharpness and contrast nicely demonstrated lady in traditional costume with a mobile phone, beautiful colors.
We have become dependent on cell phones, they won the whole world.
Nice afternoon and all the best.

Cela fait tout drôle de voir cette vieille dame en vêtements traditionnels se servir de ce mobile avec autant de facilité. On voit bien que ces téléphones sont maintenant partout.

That's another fine shot of the old lady with a charming expression on her face. Excellent framing with lovely colours and clarity. Thanks for sharing.
Have a nice evening.

Nice moment captured with the delight on the woman's face seeing her image in this modern gadget. I like her maused look and her colourful Saree. Good DL shot with nice colours. Thanks for sharing.

Excellent snapshot in superb light. You have captured the lady from superb low angle viewpoint. The colors and all details are very good.
Very well done.
rychem (23132) 2014-03-31 8:38
Wow! Great contrast of tradition and modern times, beautiful and colorful clothes of this lady, well captured and composed
PaulVDV (22059) 2014-03-31 10:37
In a certain way it's a bit a funny picture. On the other hand I understand your concern for a better life for this woman and for many Indians who live in smaller villages.
In some places on earth a mobile phone isn't that difficult to obtain while the care for basic needs (housing, healthy food, education) can be a big problem.
Of course that doesn't mean that this lady may not enjoy the pleasure of looking at a selfie.
Excellently composed, wonderful colours, a very nice portrait!
Best regards, Paul

A beautiful and intriguing portrait show, shot to capture the womans beautiful smile. The combination of her traditional dress with stunning colors and her reaction to the technology is a sight to see, and I am really glad you captured it. A fantastic result,
thanks as always

Fascinating portrait of this woman, which offers a great contrast with the beautiful and traditional sari and modern Blackberry in his hand, according to a note that looking at a picture of her, her face shows how happy satisfaction doing it.
An image to enjoy, with its beautiful colorful, good lighting and perfect sharpness.
Very well done.
Have a great start to the week.

You have captured well the smiling expression of the old lady looking at her cell phone. The point of view is showing the details an dthe colours of her clothing. Have a nice ay.

I love the irony, she looks so old and traditional but carries a cell phone!
RhodieIke (11742) 2014-03-31 21:58
Great you have put a smile on this old lady's face.
She looks so different in her colourful clothes.
Well managed and presented, Tfs,
Cricri (106327) 2014-03-31 23:21
Jolie dans ces vêtements traditionnelle et colorées, un visage heureux en regardant sa photo dans le GSM, bon cadrage, lumière, belle scène de vie
Tout le meilleur au peuple de l'Inde...

You're capturing well this scene by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the spectacle which this village lady is holding the cellphone in her hand and satisfied it. It's also impressive in her traditional showy clothes. An electronic device seems to have abolished the wall of the border.

As the Cinderella of the fairy tale she seems quite satisfied of the mirror feedback about her question 'Mirror on the wall, tell me who's the cutest of them all'!!
Quite a sympathic portrait, indeed!
ikeharel (57080) 2014-04-01 7:46

Woww, now I can watch the woman and the great colourful sari she is wearing

How very little she need to smile
Very well done, touching note, hope the same to all india villagers, that are always so kind
jcpix (13658) 2014-04-01 16:02
Wow, what a stark contrast from your previous picture of the "wrinkled lady." I don't know why, but that makes me laugh. :) Bright and colorful this time, with plenty of blue color that always catches my attention. It seems that no matter who, when or where...people and their phones, there's no escape from technology. Super point of view, a smart idea to get down, even below eye level to create a more dramatic visual. Love the contrasts of textures, the human skin, dress material and surrounding stone...all of which come together for another pleasing image. Bravo! Enjoy the new day. All the best.

It's amazing how modern have infiltrated even the remotest part of the world. The last time I visited the Philippines in 2007 I saw cell towers in the middle of pristine jungles. Nice capture of the old and the new. Good dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Comprehensive portrait, beautiful Attractive eyes weaken and weary bodies, local colored clothing
Kamilutka (8095) 2014-04-02 12:43
well taken picture of this old lady enjoying modern technology achievement. It seems that there are no boundaries if it comes to country or age for people to be interested in development. Great combination of traditional elements (like her clothes) and new ones. Good framing and nice saturated colors.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your day

Une scène amusante et joyeuse à la fois. Un joli portrait bien capturé avec de belles couleurs.
Comme tu le dis dans ta note, j'espère aussi que les choses vont s'améliorées dans ce beau pays. J'ai lu quelques livres sur l'Inde qui m'ont fait voyager, ici sur TE il y a les photos, j'aime beaucoup ce pays.
Merci pour le partage.

ourania (30937) 2014-04-09 9:00
your composition is dynamic and attractive, you have captured a spontaneous and genuine scene, full of character. I like very much the transfer of interest from the lady to the phone. Both her face and the phone are very important for the composition, you've exalted them so effectively. The lady's expression of interest and delight is wonderful, the colours she's wearing make her stand out and enhance the dynamism and the cheerful mood. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,
COSTANTINO (55398) 2014-04-09 23:20

josepmarin (57789) 2014-04-10 11:13
the fresh and sincere smile of this elder woman while she looks herself in the Blackberry screen, was deserving this shot, indeed.
It's a natural and spontaneous scene, that you've caught skillfully.
A great work.
Didi (56843) 2014-04-11 8:24
Lovely scene well framed with an interesting perspective of the smartphone
delpeoples (53009) 2014-04-18 6:12
Namaskar dear Farhat
What a delightful photo. The light is difficult but it does not take away from the beautiful of the lady's smile and her delight in seeing her "selfie" on the mobile telephone. I particularly like her sari, the deep blue and gold colours are very attractive and eye catching. Thanks for sharing, have a lovely weekend.
adores (36977) 2014-04-27 6:57
I like her fantastic smile looking at her photo:)! She seems really happy with it. A very good pose and the blue sari adds much colour.
