This is another picture of offerings at Dakshinkali, small town near Kathmandu, Nepal. As I had already written previously, this is an extremely difficult place where to take pictures, especially if the photographer wants special ones. The crowds, the tricky light, and especially the sacred atmosphere form hard circumstances.

j'aime beaucoup cette image un peu surrannée par les tei,tes, mais très belle capture de la lumière et des couleurs

A beautiful capture Izzet, you must have worked hard to get so close without getting an obscured view or getting trampled. and with a tripod as well! You also manage to avoid the blood, which is difficult in itself, as I remember it running everywhere. (I have a rather more bloodthirsty image in my portfolio!). Despite the strong reaction this place stirs up in people I loved it, and feel you have captured the sacred atmosphere extremely well.

bravo pour cette photo de 15 ans, ça n'a pas changé je pense.
La lumière à l'air très difficile à maîtriser ici et c'est une leçon de photo que tu nous offres !
J'aime cette atmosphère mystique avec les flammes et la fumée.

A magic light always helps to create a special mood, and you did it very well here, Izzet. It's beautiful and mysterious.
As I promissed, I'm back.

this one is a winner, there is great atmosphere, the mood is created not only by the light, but by the hapahazard distribution of the arms and figures thru-out the frame, at the same time, you gave a precise focus to the central figure, which in no way attracts too much attention, but participates all the same to convey that there is always a sense of mistery revealed or apprehended while practicing a religious ritual. The strength of your shot is that it does not force it on us, but lets us guess it, unmistakably thru an atmosphere expertly rendered.

Absolutely beautiful. I can feel the mood vividly.

a very spiritual moment i must say. I liked the color here and the overall ambience.
The hand coming from the left side of the frame is very special here.
