Continuing on my mood series.
Saturday morning farmers market in Chico. Rain or shine the avid shoppers are there for organic food and also for some colors. I stole this moment of one such shopper picking her color.
Sorry about the poor light condition.
Ps: my new Fuji finepix a700 is here but did not get a chance to test drive it for TE yet. Few more photos then I should be able to show them to you.

An everyday situation well framed!
I like the composition and the casual scenery, also I notice autumn is well established on the West Coast...
Good colours and pleasant sharpness, and your new toy will probably do even better!

I was just thinking of how well you were doing with a broken camera when I opened the photo and I read your great news!! I couldn't resist fiddleing with this shot even though I told myself that with you having a new camera it was a futile exercise. I don't even have any WS left bur I found that decreasing the brightness (-26) and increasing the contrast (+34) really put a lot of zing in colors without loosing that autumn feeling. Like Pablo, I found the framing and the subject so well done, I just couldn't keep my fingers off it :-)

Merhaba Pranab, my friend...
It's a beautiful moment and shot... The flowers's colors and their contrast between the autumn tones are wonderful... Also wonderful point of view and perspective...
PS: Did the postcards reach to you?...

A lovely scene, Pranab, from excellent POV, with nice colors in flowers and trees, with the pick-up probably giving the "Chico" touch. Regards, Daniel

thanks for sharing. nice collection of flowers, with an interesting look in this shopper's eyes. The intelligent way by keeping the umbrella in the
photo, I appreciate.

Yes, a good scene. You're close to the woman, but she doesn't mind: and that's good.
Only I would prefer a wider view.

I like these farmer's products - flowers among them, that are true children of Nature...
