In Panjim (Goa's capital city) municipal market... it was crowded, hot and humid, i was looking around for some shots, when around the corner i spotted that lady bathed in sunlight... i knew she was going to be on TE the day after...
She actually doest sell flowers but rather garlands that hindu Goan women always wear in the hair...
Hope you like it..

Très beau portrait de cette femme. Très occupée par son travail elle ne semble pas faire attention au photographe. Belles couleurs.
Merci pour le partage et bon dimanche.

A fine natural looking daily life scene making her very beautiful in her environmemnt, I like your framing where the natural feel can pull you more in to the scene then a overcomposed isolation that would pull more attention to techniques in disfavor of the subject, a question of who you want to focus.

Bravo Laurent, I like your compo so much, the lady working and her environment.
A lady working with flowers should smile... she looks so hard, so serious!
Thank you for sharing this interesting photo!!

Laurent what makes this photo excellent is the side lighting aspect. There is alot of depth to the details because of sidelighting. Nice contrasting colors and very interesting cartoon details that are partially stuck to the wooden box. A very interesting photo. Her serious expression might be saying get away from me Mr Laurent photographer!!!!

Une image sympa, dommage qu'elle ne rentre pas en entiere dans ton cadrage.

Excellent and 100% "Indian" photo, Laurent! The composition and the colours are just great. The expresion of the lady shows an original photo (i mean not a "set up"). Maybe (?) the photo could be even better if the lady looked the other way.
Kalo apogevma! Hercules

Bonne photo, bien colorée avec un belle lumière. Si l'arrière plan avait été flouté, cela aurait été parfait. Mais la photo est très bien composée, la fleuriste est bien placée. Excellente netteté.

Salut Laurent. A nice contextual portrait of the garland vendor, well shown as she is surrounded by her colorful merchandise. I like the warming glow that the early-evening sunlight casts on this one.

Fantastic warm colours in a great daily life scene.
Your exposure is very good, even in the shadows lots of detail.
The womans face expressions is one in a million....great work..!!!
