A dalit kid, and a street dog,
are daydreaming together..
PS. Still very hot,, they dont have AC's naturally,
so all these dalits are in a lying position nowadays..
(Avishek's B/W convertion is a very nice one..
Thanks Avishek! and i am adding my version of b/w too after this, lol!..)

wow, strange composition but looks really great
thanks for sharing
Darren (6823) 2005-06-13 4:30
Wow, good one. An original angle and a really nice shot. I just wish you had not cropped the tip of the dog's nose off and perhaps his foot as well. Other than that, really nice work.

Some note please .. ..

Je vois que tu ne recule devant rien ;-),monsieur cest offert le fameux 17-55mm ! ! !
Très belle composition, une image dune qualité remarquable ! ! !
Belle lumière ,superbes couleurs.
scalerman (26900) 2005-06-13 4:34
Nerve(ous): perspective, compo. Everything spot here. Emotional to say the least. Beautiful digital canvas.
bantonbuju (51771) 2005-06-13 4:36
just great evren!
so well seen, and for me composition is not strange at all, it is delightful here for this picture;
great work, very successful;
have a nice week, jerzy
kinginexile (2598) 2005-06-13 4:37
very nice image, understated but with the right feeling about it, thanks to the lazy gaze of the dog, important element, that seems to speak as well for his little owner. Your presence is tolerated, but barely, with total indifference. Nice touch of color (and energy!) with the fruit being peeled. Bravo!
maciekda (19895) 2005-06-13 4:38
this is very nice, unusual POV and composition, great light. the scene is so nice, so natural, so calm. only the compo is slightly too tight at the bottom imo. very nice photo Evren
dolin (15647) 2005-06-13 4:40
Beautifull daily life.
Very peacfull shot.
I like your framing and these 2 positions.
Good tones and sharpness.
Very good quality.
Thank you... I want to sleep now;)
Luan (12971) 2005-06-13 4:44
I want to lie down like this, it loos very confortable to have a nap here ;o). I like the way you have caught and composed the picture, very flat...there is something parallel between the kid and the dog.
faubry (35405) 2005-06-13 4:49
j'aime beaucoup ce portrait, les yeux de l'enfant complètement dans le rêve!! très belles couleurs aussi
Amandine (1072) 2005-06-13 4:52
Great picture. The lignes of the composition are really original, that give an interesting perspective. Colors, sharpness, composition are well done.
naxius (16685) 2005-06-13 5:09
such a beautiful composition! It's like you have compressed it within a single layer!!
The light is really nice.
don_narayan (2014) 2005-06-13 5:37
fantastic!! the light is great, the composition is great and the idea is great... just a great photo.
sicily198x (2026) 2005-06-13 6:30
I love the brighness on his eye, full of hope! The color here is amazing,
gaby (19819) 2005-06-13 6:56
a great great one -
fantastic POV - I like a lot this portrait -
The DOF is amazing -
avis2avis (4264) 2005-06-13 7:21
Very unusual POV but must say it all comes together very nicely. The crop/compo is a bit tight at the dog's feet. But that is a minor crib when you see that one visible day dreaming eye on the girl as well the dog. Plain superb!
Furachan (0) 2005-06-13 7:41
Incredible composition, Evren, how the boys is so flattened and his body shape is mirrored by the lower orders below (the dog!) Beautiful color too. This is stunning work! Frncis
danielswalsh (13599) 2005-06-13 8:26
Nice shot Evren;
The composition is interesting as it seems to fill the whole frame, which I quite like. Another interesting thing is the uniformity of the colors in the photo, all different tones of brown, with the exception of the piece of fruit the boy is holding.
You can almost feel the heat looking at the face of the dog...
arnabchat (7233) 2005-06-13 8:28
very well shot, very dreamy, unique composition. something that brings out a spontaneous smile, and only a few shots can make that happen.
thanks for posting.
gringofil (0) 2005-06-13 9:22
Man...this is SO cool. The framing is just perfect and the best thing about the shot is that we can only see one eye of the kid looking up at the world. The framing is a bit tight and I wish you had pulled back just a little, but at the end of the day the shot has a lot of impact. Well done.
capthaddock (28790) 2005-06-13 9:32
Aaah çok sirin çocuk, renkler de gene mükemmel. Yedigi o fistik yesili meyva ne?
summersun (4978) 2005-06-13 9:33
funny shot Evren. We can actually feel the heat on that one. I like the low pov, and the eye of the kid.
I hope there is some wind for them at least...
Nice borwnish colors.
KevRyan (22952) 2005-06-13 9:52
A really nice perspective and one of my favourites of your work from India Evren - her one eye focused on what she's doing - the dog lazing beneath the bed quite at home but his eye on the lookout too! Looks very beautiful in black and white too!
All power to your lens my friend!
entrelec (8328) 2005-06-13 10:14
Very nice shot, uncommon one because of the point of view. All seems to be flat.
All in warm colors except the pear and it is what the boy is looking at!
Paker (2650) 2005-06-13 10:20
Good picture.. i love it. Colors, theme, composition... there is one thing though...it seems to me that the entire picture has been somehow 'compressed' or squeezed so to say from the top (???). I've noticed it by the kids foot being unnaturally large - almost adult size. Intentional????? Something's going on here ...hmmmmmm.
bnallama (3763) 2005-06-13 10:40
Hi Evren, I like this very unusual compo. THe dreaming and the dog gazing at you! Keeping an eye on its master. Well done. Bala
AnimeshRay (9087) 2005-06-13 11:39
This is an amazing photo...an angle and composition I have never seen before. You have broken a cardinal rule that asks one to leave a large frontal space to convey dreaming, but this apparently cramped photo works superbly to convey this same mood, perhaps because the gaze is upward almost along the diagonal and is helped by the flattened perspective created by several layers of objects.
Apart from the technicalities, the mood and the moment here are perceived and rendered with a poetic flourish.
ishai (4097) 2005-06-13 14:20
A very nice POV Evren
I like the dog look in this shot
The boy is not interested or so hot that looking is not interesting
The sharpness and colors are very good
apache (1426) 2005-06-13 14:59
A casual moment caught superbly. I guess the little guy is eating a mango..no wonder 'cos summer is a time for mangoes. Good colours and sharpness.
But i feel that the picture is a bit congested...not too much space around your subjects...a tight crop.
nwoehnl (122) 2005-06-13 15:35
A fun offbeat perspective for this lovely scene of the two day-dreaming characters. I like how we can only see one eye of the kid, and how the fruit stands out amidst the color palette. Excellent work, Evren, as usual.
AmiBe (6042) 2005-06-13 15:39
woooowww, it's a fantastic picture.
Both the dog and the boy have not a lot of energy today ! ;-)
I like the colors, the very good POV.
Very well done
tongapup (0) 2005-06-13 19:51
Amaaaazing! This photo is just beautiful! I love the way you've caught the kid's eye in a triangle... in fact there are triangles everywhere. This is so evocative of hot weather (or am I just saying that because we're in a heat wave here?). I am thrilled by this picture.
sandip (3492) 2005-06-13 21:54
B E A U T I F U L..
Everything is such beautifully handled here.. Looks at his eye. ( only one u can see and thats enough for a dream i admit.)or look at his hand how he caught a mango.. Again i can rlate with a dream.. holding by his hand to make it happen..and the POV.. i have never thought of loking like that to a subject.. Every new day there is a learning.. I like how this mirror like situation u have handled with this dog on the bottom..
Nothing to say Evren.. just looking at this moment.. because too much "say" will disturb my concentration to look arround the whole frame.
Homerhomer (4080) 2005-06-13 22:46
HOLY CRP!!!! This is absolutely spectacular, what a moment and what a presentation. I enjoy bw workshop, but think that by taking away the colour so goes the heat and feeling of laziness. Everything fall into places for you, I have to admit that from the thumbnail it didn't look that impressive, but once I opened I was absolutely stunned. The eye, him holding the fruit with the last bite taken 15 minutes ago, his body diagonally spread out across the frame, the dog is simply icing on the cake, superb colours and clarity. I can simply feel the hot and lazy atmoshpere of this place from the image. The only, very minor nit pick is cutting off dog's nose and foot, other than that a masterpiece.
Leonie (8809) 2005-06-14 4:28
wowm this is so nice! Everything, the colours and composition, the light...the pear that the child is holding gives such a nice colour spot.. and some sort of invisible, strong bound exists between the dog and the child. Something like complete trust.
Thanks! I really love it!
christina (2040) 2005-06-14 14:23
I like the perspective of this shot and the dreaminess of it. It is quite a lovely capture of childhood. Nice work!
emanuela (1257) 2005-06-15 4:54
extraordinary Evren! i just am very impressed from the position of the 2, and the eyes...there legs, o think the pov is just like perfection
moxon (78) 2005-06-15 7:04
Wonderful. Terrific POV. I love how the boy's pose is mimicked by the dog and the diagonals are repeated by the hammock. Lovely light and colours.
guliz (438) 2005-06-15 10:29
cok guzel kompozisyon! cok begendim
gercekten guzel resim cekiyorsunuz. renkleri, kompozisyonu cok iyi kullaniyorsunuz...
Hanssie (10397) 2005-06-15 15:53
79 points and that's worth it !
What a composition and pose of dog and child, just spectacular, also the light and clearness, wonderful done, Evren !
lestans (17098) 2005-06-16 3:16
This is a great picture! Dog, bed and ground have the same color, so the child comes out of the pic. And the fruit is the only green object, so it capturtes the eye. But there is also an interesting compo of lines. Great work, thank you!! Livia
beyaz_toprak (355) 2005-06-16 6:48
Güzel bir kompozisyon.. İki sadık dostun sıcaktan yorgun düştüğü bir an gibi geldi bana. renler ve netlikte çok güzel. tebrikler arkadaş..

Mükemmel bir fotograf Evren, tam sergi ya da yarisma için. Candan kutlarım.. Beklenmedik ve çok etkileyici bir kadraj. Renkler ışık şahane.
Great picture with unexpected framing which gives so much to the result. I would have snet it to a contest. Take care - Izzet

rbcy1974 (20758) 2005-06-17 21:01
I guess you have been really busy in my absece. Wow! this is really inspirational, it reminds me of the work of a Mexican mural painter called Orozco, did you ever heard about him? Anyway, i dont know what you have done in this picture to create this surreal effectm but its just amazing.
ChrisJ (95866) 2005-06-19 6:30
A superb image. I like the almost 3d layering. The color of the dog also nicely matches that of the hammock. Well done!
Fixfocus (9385) 2005-06-20 4:23
it´s a pleasure to look at this well composed and timeless picture.Wonderful how you captured the mood here.

this is a beautiful photo of a child at play. i love the colors and your composition. good eye!
Jujube (125) 2005-08-04 20:17
J'adore cette photo! La perspective toute en angles, les regards de l'enfant et du chien, la touche de vert donnée par le fruit... Les couleurs sont superbes.
Calimero76 (10953) 2005-08-20 2:48
je suis admiratif devant cette image
j'adore cette complicité entre l'enfant et le chien
ce que j'aime le plus c'est le regard de l'un et l'autre
merci à toi de nous faire partager cet instant saisi
lolo-06 (166) 2005-08-29 8:17
Strange but efficient composition.
Nice light. I like also the fruit which create a contrast in colors. Then just an eye open to the sky.
early_doors (207) 2005-09-17 8:28
Been having a look through your photos and can't tell whether this is my favorite (I think it is). I love the way you see great photos and then just take them. I often worry about whether I'm being appropriate/rude/intrusive and then, when I think 'what the hell - I'll take the photo anyway', the moment has gone.
This photo epitomises what I like about your portfolio - a good eye, dynamic framing, wonderful colours, brilliant use of DOF and, as always, a fascinating subject.
santhosh_ermal (122) 2005-09-21 6:51
again...would you mind telling me..how to take all these marvellous moments ? :)))..
hmmm....I have go through some of your creativities...it absolutley..perfect ...all sounds very good..excellent

Very good work. A thougtful picture. Excellent composition, high definition, very good colours. A masterpiece ..
ballyna (1689) 2005-11-16 12:48
bu gözümden kaçmış,çok güzel bir kompozisyon.ikisi de kendi dünyalarında,köpek gölgeden de çok güzel istifade ediyor.şu köpeğin ayakları dibindeki ahşap parça dikkatimi dağıtıyor ama çok önemsiz bir detay;ışık harika.tebrikler,
drewkaya (86) 2005-12-14 19:25
Duality with a point of focus (Fruit - which has its own metaphors as a microcosm)
A field of brown (samsara) and the fruit (nirvana - already begun to be percieved - eaten)
Yet communicated in humble means.
WOW WOW WOW
Only critisim is fruit over saturated to the point of being blobby. Would like to see a bit more detail but not as much as in hammock.
bcprado (18) 2006-01-01 17:13
I just love the angle this photo was taken from ! the colors and overall feeling of the photo are very relaxing.
ozaydin (620) 2006-01-05 10:46
Hem cocugun hem de kopegin gozleri tam netlik uzakliginda olmasi dikkati dogrudan ikisinin gozlerine topluyor, tek karede iki kompozisyon gibi...bravo!
Two compositions in one shot !
Dr_Nibbles (283) 2006-04-07 14:27
The moment is really well captured, though I think I would prefer a wider crop, showing a tiny little bit more of the surroundings (like 5mm to each side).
partha (14020) 2006-04-13 14:31
Oh ho its a beauty.
Good documentry shot.
Nice mixture with child and pet.
wolf38 (31258) 2006-06-30 15:58
One of the most beautiful photos, which I saw in trekearth. Everything fits on the best: Child, fruit, dog, colors, screen window. Congratulation. Greeting, Wolfgang
klik (301) 2006-07-26 8:38
The greatest thing that i can see to your picture is the one eye from the boy and the same from the dog that we can see.
vhemmati (616) 2006-08-15 14:27
The POV and coposition is great and it completely serves its purpose to show the viewer the photographers idea.
evanrizo (456) 2006-08-15 15:06
Thanks for share, thanks for share this image full of feelings.
iGirl (1223) 2006-08-15 16:53
Hi Evren, nice shot, the boy and the dog look very tired. My only suggestion is that my eye would like to see a little more at the top, above the kid's arm.
This is a great photo for either color or b&w; I like them both!
Thanks for sharing!
Beaconx (81) 2006-08-16 17:29
Very simple and beautiful picture. Just the existance of a green apple among terra colors creates the most distinct contrast and adds extra flavor the this delicious scene. The positions of the dog and the boy strengthen the whole "peaceful" feeling. Congrats..
veronika (6052) 2006-09-09 15:14
this is so perfectly composed and the mood there is so "real".. like me now :))
Im happy to have one copy in favourites :)
USErin (189) 2006-11-10 23:58
Youve captured a very real moment here. The colors contribute to the sense of heat.
Nina (4965) 2006-11-14 8:29
Wow! I failed to spot this one until now and I am glad I found it. Excellent work Evren, you must have had enough feedback by now to know that. :)
marcocig (781) 2006-11-14 8:42
Just wonderful composition. I would have just included more of the wooden bed on the left side.
Cara (2059) 2007-02-23 14:17

Great original composition. Just an interesting and original shot.
arjun_das (1851) 2007-09-22 7:45
what a composition it is! you probably chose the toughest angle to shoot the scene. superb focus on the subject and the light is spot on as well. tfs.
Merline (0) 2008-02-06 7:09
an audacious and original composition. A cm more to get the whole nose would have been perfect:-) A touching and serene complicity between the human and the animal, as it should always be...lovely colors too. Superb.
azizbilgili (2111) 2008-10-17 11:26
Merhaba Evren bey,
