My 500th post is a photo of India. This time I've chosen a photo of a treet magician we met in Mandawa. Mandawa is a town in the Shekhawati region, well known for its magnificent havelis (private mansions decorated with magnificent frescoes, which are common in this region). Early in the morning, when we were wandering around to see the havelis, we met this street magician. He was just great and we had some wonderful time with him!

Toutes mes félicitations pour ta 500e !
Cette composition est vraiment spectaculaire. Ce magicien semble raconter une histoire incroyable. Les couleurs sont surperbes et la main du personnage est particulièrement attirante et fascinante. Bravo.

The photo has the vivid colors of a very good painting, and is composed just as effectively. The magician certainly has an arresting presence, and I imagine he can put on a gripping performance. An aspect I like very much is the variegated, wall, revealing its textures. Congratulations on your 500th post. It is a winner!

Olà dear Ana
First of all, congratulations for your 500 posts ;D
I like the expression you've caught on the magician's face and the gesture of his hand.
The textured wall made also for an interesting BG.

You have taken this superb pictures in one of my favourite places in Rajasthan. I took many photos here in 2008 but didn't see a magician. The expression on his face has been captured superbly and th exposure and sharpness is first class. The colours of his scarf and case against the crumbling wall with its faded pastel shades is wonderful. Congratulations on your 500th post.
Kind Regards, Ann

Congrats on your 500th!
This place must be full of interest and this street magician is certainly keeping the crowds entertained. His expressions are fascinating as he is doing his routine. Excellent pov and close in shot to get a better focus of the performer. A very striking and well composed image and I like the highly detailed and tones in this. I feel that this is a strong candid, he's animated, active and communicating. The colours stand out beautifully vibrant. Good work indeed. Congrats

Boa representação da Índia e seus mistérios. Gostei de como o mágico ficou bem focado em frente à parede, sem objetos para distrair a atenção. As cores são ótimas, e a expressão misteriosa do artista ficou bem definida. Parabéns pelo trabalho e pela 500ª foto.

Felicitaciones por estas 500 fotos y mis deseos de que sigamos compartiendo muchos cientos mas.
La composicion elegida es fantastica, me encanta la imagen del mago en una instantanea que transmite movimiento, el fondo de la pared con esos suaves tonos de color, es un fondo ideal.
Muy buena nitidez, luminosidad y color muy natural. Felicitaciones.
Pasa una buena tarde.

Es una foto técnicamente muy bien hecha, los detalles de color y definición son excelentes, y lo mejor de todo la expresión del Mago, seguramente explicando como se iba a desarrollar su espectáculo.
Saludos y feliz sábado.

i missed this one posted when I was in Provence for a short week
Bravo for your 500 contributions to TE
This one that you selected for this occasion is excellent
Daily life situation just the way i like them, natural, not posed but showing the man in full action in his business
Nice colors and an adequate neutral though interesting wall as the BG
Some more please

Hello Ana, how are you?. Fine capture of this magician, Beautiful pose & love the expression, so animated, nice work & excellent quality image. Compliments & congratulation on your 500th post, sometimes I wonder if I will ever last that long, well on both counts.
Waylim (25368) 2011-06-15 23:04
Excellent 500th post, that is a lot of photos you share with us. I like very much the dramatic emotion in his face. It like more like a dramatic stage play than a magician. Very nice texture background make the whole thing look like a painting.
Good shot. Thanks.
blagov58 (289) 2011-08-17 15:02
it wasn't very scary to make a picture of a magician? Nice portrait, great character.
stevenmelissa (203) 2011-09-02 19:53
What a striking portrait! Perfect focus and a very pleasing composition. I love the abstract painterly look of the wall behind him - such a nice contrast to the crystal clarity of the subject. Very successful photo.
Best regards, Steve
MichaelTrezzi (3368) 2011-09-07 4:22
You just captured a great moment here in a move complemented by the facial expression of the magician. Well done. Thanks for sharing. Kind regards, Michael
scalerman (26900) 2011-10-10 7:51
Ana: it's a pleasure to see old TE members still posting. This could be any street anywhere in India - but you captured the moment in crystal... Great... best, c
wolf38 (31282) 2012-02-29 1:08
Hello Ana. The posture and gestures of the man is interesting - as well as the accessories around. The photograph stimulates the imagination of the viewer. Informative text. Good work. Rgds, Wolfgang.
CLODO (31132) 2012-02-29 1:32
someone critics it this morning, so that is why I discovered this ancien shot of you.
Good low POV to be at his level, and decisive moment when he raises his hand and talks with someone. The red suitecase indicates what he is doing.
