A nice warm colour, as that of the chai...
The tight crop helps in making things very involving...

J'aime beaucoup ce type d'ambiance...et ce pays...Dommage que l'avant-plan(les verres) ne soit pas net.

Nice framing and plenty of interest both fore and background. Love the twin falls of dudh and chai.

A nice warm colortone and a good compo with the two men serving tea, curious a bit with the pooring milk,
an excellent action-capture frozen moment, pleasant also to see those two in the background.

this is great, incredible light, good catch of the moment. Rarely I have seen so good image of tea stall in India - you've managed to convey the mood in exceptional way.

Very good mood image. You have caught the moment very well. The tea stalls of India could produce many many great images if one only had the patience to seek them. I can almost smell the brew. The face looking at you from left has added to the impact. The white and brown streams complement each other. As they actually do in tea.
Maybe, if the right hand pouring the tea could have been there in full ... However, a minor detail.

I just discovered your nice gallery (actually from the comments made on Sandip's picture), for me this is the best one. First I wonder how the two people in the middle become so small, then I understand the perspective here, it was confusing because of the smoke. The movement of the hands of these two guys in the front is excellent.

That's one hell of a long day - hail to their efforts in making my favourite drink - which sadly I cannot have anymore! A stunning image - great capture of the moment from a very intelligent point of view - a really good picture - I liked your gallery very much.
best wishes Kev

I thought I had already commented on this...I was wrong...
This is just indescribable. I LOVE THIS SO MUCH. I usually have a lot to say, but I am speechless on this one.
I want to enlarge it and put it on my kitchen wall...!
love it love it LOVE IT!
Time to go and drink a nice cup of chai...

thanks for sharing.
Tea is essential hot drink in Asia just like coffee is in Europe and Americas.
And it is interesting watching tea culture in different cultures.
