A hip shot - it can be very hit and miss that I always love...
sneaking an intimate glimpse of a private life perhaps! depicting a small world from a little corner and slice of daily life on the narrow back alley of Jodhpur.
These men were enjoying a lunch time card game, a hard game well fought in deep concentration.
You can just imagine the bickering and banter going on there!!

sei sempre alla ricerca di soggetti interessanti da ritrarre e sempre ambientati in maniera eccellente.
Questa foto colpisce per il particolare POV e per la superba luce che illumina il soggetto.
Splendidi anche i colori dell'ambiente nel quale si svolge la scena.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

J'aime beaucoup cette photo, presque prise en cachette, comme si tu espionnais cet homme qui joue aux cartes avec ses amis.Un beau point de vue très bas qui aide à la composition.
Kamilutka (8107) 2014-02-22 5:51
I like this slightly quirky angle which makes the shot more dynamic. Well captured scene of group of men playing cards. I like the composition and focus on man in the corner.
Nice colors, well given contrast and perfect sharpness.

Like this sneaky shot, it's great when you look to see what you have, love it, sneaking a view of this private card game.
Wonderful, well done.

This is an original composition with fantastic colours and a great atmosphere. Once again your hip shots prove a great success. They may be different from your regular compositions but the sense of reality is is totally convincing. I enjoy this photo very much.
Fis2 (104024) 2014-02-22 8:53
I like POV and colors.
Very impressive picture.
Noel_Byrne (33090) 2014-02-22 8:59
When I see these hip shots you share, I always feel like I am peeping into another very private world, and that you have taken a moment that nobody would ever see and shared it with us. That makes the image all the more special to me. I like the look of concentration on the mans face, and the script on the wall with the yellow splash is perfect in this!
Thanks as always

A very good intimate shot of these card players, with the focus on the one at rear
A good blue wall as the bg, and the 2 other players to frame the action
bravo, have a nice we

Ciao Abmdsudi, lovely daily life composition, great low POV, excellent clarity, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio
ourania (49901) 2014-02-22 13:17
this is a superb hip shot, full of interest and intensity. Although the exciting hit and miss technique is risky, you chose a marvelous angle for your capture, placing the three players in a triangle. One looks resigned, the one stuck in the corner is either in a hard spot or bluffing and the one on the right is mysterious and imposing. It's amazing how effectively the scene has been lit and how much meaning the textures and the colours have acquired. I also like very much the sense of intimacy and intensity. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,
krzychu30 (15512) 2014-02-22 14:38
looks like candid shot taken without preparation and exactly this is,what makes it so captivating to me.
It´s very real and true,without any adornment.Real scene,real life and truly magnificent mood of the scene.
Masterfully composed,timed and executed!
subhendu_bagchi (26089) 2014-02-22 21:30
A very good one. LOVE YOUR PRESENTATION,like your chosen POV. Great tonal quality & light too. Nice work. TFS.
jjcordier (79297) 2014-02-22 22:54
Cette "photo volée" est vraiment très intéressante. Tu as réussi à parfaitement isoler ce joueur de cartes en pleine concentration et qui semble attirer toute la lumière vers lui. Excellent!
mirosu (16273) 2014-02-23 1:57
I am not sure whether I did say it to you already, but I admire your superb photo creativity. You are able to produce excellent photos in situations where many photographers would not see the potential.
This is very good example. You have captured three card players but concentrating only on one. The other two are used for nice natural framing of this scene. I like it.
Very well done.
saxo042 (37966) 2014-02-23 1:57
Here you definitely captured the action and the colours. The man is deeply concentrated and his shirt is a very fine colour complement to the wall behind him.
Cricri (123796) 2014-02-23 8:29
Intéressant comme vous avez cadrer la scène plutôt serré, tout en laissant le jeu ce déroulée, un endroit simple , colorée, dont l'ambiance amicale est bien présente
Schnappilic (9692) 2014-02-23 12:44
Splendid POV with an unusual frame. I feel like I'm there. Very good idea and perfect realization. Congratulations!
shevchenko (20548) 2014-02-23 19:09
Lively daily life shot, good photo from a narrow corner, interesting composition and informative note to introduce their life, thanks for sharing.
kato (11630) 2014-02-23 21:40
You're capturing well this daily life by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive the spectacle in which these men are enjoying the card games at back alley. The men at the center looks like to concentrate it. It's also interesting in the psychological warfare with a partner. The whole is harmonized well by a good arrangement and tasteful color combinations.
eldancer1 (36343) 2014-02-24 15:20
You have more nerve than I would have and you did have some great candid photo of those people unaware of what you were doing. Awesome lighting and good details with wonderful colors. Very well done, tfs.
cebe (1491) 2014-02-24 20:43
A very enjoyable photo with lots of atmosphere. Great low point of view that puts the viewer in the action. Lovely colours (I like that yellow spot and the blue walls). The tilt works well. The very well placed bright cards easily visible against the wall help to quickly catch the story.
Best regards, Claude.

Hello Abmdsudi - I think the method you used to achieve this shot has added a given the image a fabulous realism, there is not posing or 'set-up' here and I like the rawness of the composition. The cards held in the hand of the man on the RHS are an essential part of the shot as they describe his involvement with the game and relate to the cards on the ground and the ones in his opponents hands. I like your idea here and the documentary-style result. Warm regards Rosemary
Graal (103038) 2014-02-25 23:59
good shot and caught scene. Fine reportage about the simple, daily life. Well done photo.
Have a nice day.
nikkitta (17068) 2014-02-26 9:27
Super interesting and well capture street scene, love this kind of capture showing people concentrated in a game at the street
Like the saturated color and focal POV
Well done, congrats
Strange, never see such scene with women as players
Didi (60590) 2014-02-27 2:14
The main action of the scene is in the background with a very good lights ambiance
Very nice mixing colours
ajayrawat (670) 2014-03-04 6:57
pretty cool, your hip shot got a nice frame and the yellow patch there adds the highlight automatically to the old man with cards.
adores (46305) 2014-03-20 16:03
I like the unusual and original composition. You captured a real daily scene in a very authentic way. I like the way you framed them, the colours, the details and their concentration on the game.
tatadalou (7459) 2014-04-25 20:17
Excellent dailylife picture. Your framing let me think of a "stolen photo", rapidly taken, and I think it's what I prefer in this shot. You have captured the moment with a lot of talent. Lovely colours, too.
fritzi007 (11884) 2014-08-29 14:59
very good snapshot, well done
aliabazari (16252) 2014-09-01 21:36
I enjoy the lighting and colors used in the images. Very beautiful view of the men shown in the game. Composition is well done. Excellent sharpness and exposure. Thanks for recording this nice picture
