An artisan giving final touches to an idol of Goddess Durga as a helper holds out a candle for better viweing. Incidentally the eyes are given the last touch of paint as it is believed to indice life into the idiol. Durga Puja the greatset festival of the Bengalies is around the corner and it is time to celebrate for all.

The eyes of the idol are the key here and you have captured them spot on. I wonder about the lighting, surely its not all from the candle? There seems to be some other light source as well.

Thank you so much for sharing these mesmerizing, mystic and captivating eyes every bengali the world over waits for an year. You dont seem to have used a flash, yet the face is so very lit up.

This is fantastic.Gorgeous colors.The eyes of the Goddess is the most beautiful part of this picture.Great brightness also...not sure if it is all due to the candle!!Frankly speaking I dont like the hand here....specially with all sorts of grains.

This is a gem Anjan, the way you have achieved this with low light is very good.

Fascinating Anjan...a real closeup. Great POV to highlight the beautiful large eyes. Very well composed!

Good shot Anjan. Love the POV especially alongside the information in your note. The colours also are wonderful. only possible fault could be the slightly sharper, maybe.
Please see what you think of my recent painters postings.
