A nice silhouette shot of the farmer on the golden sky
Obviously what looks as a swallow in full flight is a great bonus to the compo
have a nice evening
All the best

Wonderful composition which is special for your style and color tones Prasun. I like it very much. The vertical framing, including the dived bird in the sky was very appropriate.
Thanks for sharing

A fantastic minimalist composition with striking light management and witty framing. The floating bird on the upper part of the frame adds a great charm and interest to the image. Amamzing work, I liked a lot. Thanks for sharing. Best wishes,

this is a lovely photo owing its marvellous composition and interest to the point of view and the artful light management. I like very much this upward look, placing the farmer on a solid dark base of straws against the bright sky. His body is hiding the sun but its lovely glow is diffused splendidly around the dark silhouette. The subtle patterns of the clouds and above all the elegant bird complete a wonderful impression. Congratulations!
All the best,

Très bon contrejour avec une superbe lumière dorée. J'aime beaucoup la présence de l'oiseau dans le ciel qui donne une symbolique à l'image.

Some of your photos are master-pieces, dear friend Prasun. This one is lovely. Bravo friend.
daddo (26794) 2012-02-28 22:40
Namsr Prasun. When I see you surname I think of the wonderful novel A House for Mr Biswas by V. S. Naipaul. The photo has a marvelous feel about it, especially with the swift flying past, catching the last insects before it's time to sleep. The farmer's work is never finished, by the time he gets home, unhitches the bullocks and feeds the animals it will be dark. Then he will eat his dinner and go to sleep , ready for another day's back breaking work. looks romantic from a photographer's point of view, especially with the golden glow. Best wishes. Klaudio.

a magnificent cross-light here!
You have managed skillfully the luminosity, the golden tonalities of the sunset and the silhouette of the farmer in this good cross-light, in order to obtain an image with a great aesthetic beauty.
An excellent technical execution. Congrats!
jlbrthnn (76037) 2012-02-29 5:08
The silhouette is particularly attractive. I appreciate the skill of decision and choice of exposure. The light and colors are sublime. Excellent quality. Bravo.
Have a nice day

Fantastic graphism & silhouettes with good sharpness & a wonderful orange sky. The bird top right balances the compo. Good tonal range in the sky. Tfs!

nice snapshot with the lean woman to the ground to cover the sun on her backdrop and creating a beautiful optical errefct.I like the colour tints of the sky as the way the figure of the woman outlined against the sky.
macjake (68488) 2012-03-02 10:08
you have a couple of these photo's in your gallery, and i enjoy viewing both of them.
these silhouettes are almost always so pleasurable to take and watch.
great shot, it stands out smartly in the small thumbnail gallery.

Hello Prasun, very beautiful this your photo with the silhouette that "covers" the direct sunlight. Very beautiful and original with wonderful colors.
Greetings, good evening .... Desy
erdna (5711) 2012-03-08 8:39
Very nice composition and good point of view. Not ver many people will block the sun with using the main subject of the photo.

Beautiful shot, Prasun. Very warm and intimate. Good idea to place the sun behind the figure. The bird in the sky is a nice touch too.
Have a great weekend,

This is a beautiful image. Splendid use of the backlight to create a nice silhouette of the working farmer. The bird fills out some of the empty sky in a delicate way. Very nice work:) TFS. Have a nice day.
Best regards, Erling

This is a nice well composed shot. You positioned the person well in the center blocking the sun. And I like the presents of the bird in the corner of the image. Good light.
