Really eye-catching picture. For me, however, the colours are too vivid making it too unnatural - particularly the reds. Still, a great image!

This is really an eye-catcher. Thanks to the cropping the picture is very concentrated and the assymetri also makes it better, I mean, if the bags had been centered the picture had been boring. I think you should tune down the colour intensity slightly to make it look more real.

The colors of the powder and the shapes of the bags are great even though the colors are a bit too vivid. The framing is excellent. If the material of those bags/the background was "more natural" the image would look even more beautiful, I think. Well, there isnīt much you can do for it... Still, very good shot.

The colors present in your composition look great! Very nice!
What is tiak powder? Can you please tell us a little about what it's used for?

If those are the actual colurs i dont think you should change it. It is a verry vivid image and verry muh alaive. It was actually the colours that caught my eye on this one. I like them as they are. I also like yout tight cop.

I love the intense colours, almost flourescent. Great composition. You could think of it as an abstract. Tika powder is also used during the festival of Holi to throw at people, the way water is thrown on people at Easter in Eastern Europe.
But mostly, I think tika powder is used to create intricate floor patterns at weddings and other celebrations.
