I think this photo is deeply underrated as it is actually a very good and interesting shot at the same time.
I like the way you portrait the challi walla, focusing on the subject he sells (corn in the lower right corner), yet keeping the shallow DOF to keep him out of focus, almost invisible and lost in darkness of the night.
We can only see him because of this huge flame coming out of the stove he uses to cook/fry his corn seeds.
I've also been through some other photos of yours and they have a high traditional and preservational value.
God be with you,

nice shot. I like night photos. I don't think there are enough of them. Interesting subjext and good sharpness in the foreground.

There is really a great mood in this picture, and I fully agree with robiuk's critique on all points. The only "problem" (which is not really a problem, maybe more a regret) is the composition, I would have liked to see more of the corn in the front (so maybe have an vertical format with more of the foreground?). Maybe you have tried that and it doesn't work.
Anyway, this is a great picture, with a wonderful atmosphere. I like the man fading away behind the flame. We can feel the heat. Really well done.

Nice shot - very atmospheric. We can see that there's life, things going on in & around the falme (like the guy sitting in the background).

very nice. the fire is exposed just right, and the person behind is lit the right amount to make curious.
the foreground is remarkebly sharp.

Lovely and warm. This reminds me of a gathering around a fire a chilly night although it is not. Your photo delivers such great emotion. Wonderful and very thoughtful composition. Foreground details are superb as well as the blurred man.
Thankyou for all your wonderful work.
The best to you,
