decisive moment for sure. its always fun to have these unplanned events like this.
too bad about the cars in the bg, but what can you do right?
you had to grab your shot quickly, so i understand that.
i like the colours of the horse, they match the leaves on the ground :)
nice unexpected shot from Scotland

hello Craig, What a strange coincidence! Yesterday I sent to Gert the slideshow with my pictures from Varanasi (more than 200 photos!). The man has really long legs and arms and relatively small head and and he is quite skinny. Very strange view. Wonderful building with the high towers. Excellent composition.
have a nice Sunday

very cool. Now what you need to do is come back at night and capture long trail lights of cars zooming by :)
nice to see the 2 main landscapes and how they contrast each other. there's the green sloped lower half and the grey pitted area up top. excellent shadowing and lighting.

yes, i've seen photos of this online recently.
i'm still not sure if i love it or dislike it - and i'm an architecture lover! what makes me not like it so much is how skinny it is, if it were 2 or 3 times as wide it would look better. it looks like a tall skinny pencil among short stalky boxes. kinda weird. but....it grabs our attention and its certainly worthy of some photos. love the subject material, certainly interesting and gets people talking.
I take it the vast majority of people in manhattan don't like it?

Beatiful portrait of the little one taken in interesting light. This smile is priceless.
It's refreshing to see a photo of a person from this place, everyone seems to concentrate on the ruins only.

We have these parakeets where I live in England too! They are very loud but also very beautiful and lively. Love watching them and I've taken a few photos too.
You captured their colours beautifully on the canvas of blue sky.
Nice new series!

Hello Craig ,
You're right , the low POV on this amazing high building is excellent , but the presence of this long legged man is a great bonus . I suppose that those men come from bath ?
I also like the warm colors of the walls , and the plenty of details .
I prefer the main post , beacuse the WS is a little too distorted for my taste .

Amazing image showing beautiful architecture and at the same time this man, that seems to be the only person in the building. Great composition with well used symmetry and I like your idea to present it in b&w as it shows contrast and shapes nicely, one rarely sees monochrome photos from Jaipur.
