Behold the bathing beauty!!:) This is Vennila, who must be familiar to many of you through my previous upload of her other pictures. Kids in the brick Klin had askedme to take their photographs in their best dress so that they can show it to their friends back at home.But when I reached there all were ready except Vennila, who had had a a long siesta. She was taking her bath when I passed by and I took that opportunity to take a shot.The lady in the picture is her grandmother.Since it was a hurried shot and the light was very harsh, I decided to put the make the background B&W so that the people will stand out in the picture. I don't know how successful I had been, because it is my first attempt.
Any suggestions and remarks are welcome. Thanks for stopping by,

this is so heart touching image. The point of view you have here is excellent. Is also wonderful that I can see the of water coming from the jug.
So alive. Very well composed.
Thanks for your comments on my 100th photo.

Belle scène avec un arrière-plan qui met bien en évidence mère et enfant.

Excellent capture. Perfect timing, very well thought background and the composition (though it breaks the rule) is simply brilliant. Well spotted shot.

wonderful view, the human subjects against this multiple squares background works perfectly!

a very interesting photography. The feoreground action is very good and having the boy looking into your lenses gives a nice connection to the viewer. I like the high shutter speed freezing the water and giving that refreshment character that this bath certainly was part of. You should have raised a little bit your camera to get a better exposure of the lady and less cropping the head. I also think that placing the couple more off center would add more attractiveness to the shot. Finally the graphic background provides a very interesting backdrop and let our eye focus on the main action.

very good shot...expression of them are very very good...but I think little change make this shot better...you should not crop the mother"s head this way....and place subject more left of the frame...best wishes...subir

A beautiful post from you. The almost desaturated background is also helping here. The action is beautifully captured through your lens. The little one looking at the lens has a very nice expression. I agree with Subir that the subject may be placed a little bit off-center. Also a more closer look would have been better but that does not take away any credit from you! Wonderful work.

One more beauty dropped from your cam,
Perfect a POV,
Specially everyones eye will be hanged to the bathing beauty, thats the magic I like in this image.
and DOF is really good.
When I am moving my to the wards the mother I feel the miss of two pixels on top side... but its ok.
(After watching your pics on vennila I am just curious to know who is this girl :) )

Wonderful moment you've captured here. The use of fast shutter speed looks nice here, the water droplets look frozen.

wonderful composition of a scene - a mother bathing her daughter. good use of shallow dof. the repetitive pattern in the background creates nice effect indeed. thanks for sharing such lovely pic.

I like it, your choice was very good. The composition is very good with the bricks in the background and the scene of the bathroom is so beautiful and colourful, you captured them very well.

This is really amazing.I would give you a tip that I've learnt from TE- You could try to keep the subjects(the mother and child) to liitle left to the screen.I feel that make it look neven better.
Otherwise this is perfect shot to me,brilliantly timed!!
