  • Shots Along the way

    Was driving thru Rajasthan (india)
    came up with this curious incident.
    The man on this cycle had cycled across the bridge - next pic.
    and stopped - lit his smoke which is when i took the shot.
    in the meanwhile noticed the solitary figure walking across the bridge - took that shot too . Interestingly when she finally came across - she hopped on to the back carrier of the cycle and off they went - left me wondering why the all didn't cross the bridge on wheels.





    The last one was taken further along the highway at a roadside tea-shack-
    Shot the joy in the seasoned face

    The big central picture with the woman crossing the bridge is epic - great shot, though some might say a touch cliché - but don't worry, it's yours and you should be proud of it!

      Thanks Ian - for using the wordn 'epic' I really wished later on when i had seen the picture on a larger screen that i had set up the tripod and worked on the frame to get a lot more clarity on the woman and child - I kind of seem to zoom in on them every time i look at the picture - which probably means its the natural point of focus.

        I agree with Ian, the shot of the woman on the bridge is an absolute classic. What would a B&W conversion look like I wonder. Might add a sense of timelessness to the shot.

          Have to agree, the middle shot is fab, I can imagine it being used in magazine!

            Raj,

            How on earth did you manage to get no other people on a bridge in India? My recent experience was that it is almost impossible not to have lots of people in any shot

            I like the 3rd one too - facial expression is great capture.

            Well done.
            Cheers....OzGary

              Im sort of stumped at the way you folks are homing in on the bridge picture - Thanks -- i must have been looking at other viewpoints -

              Bear -- I am dead scared of trying anything B&W , i think its one of the most dangerous shades of colour - ( will try on the quiet though).

              Gary -- I was'nt on a tourist route .. in fact i had stopped at the bridge and was staring at the isolation thinking to shoot or not to shoot when this shimmer of this woman showed up.
              And coming to think of it ,yes its nearly impossible to find any place in this country without a crowd

                A very nice set, I like them all.

                As I was looking through them one of my first thoughts on the bridge shot was 'great what about a B&W version' I think as already observed it would brush up very well indeed.

                  Hi Raj -

                  I like them all and if I were to choose just one it would be number three quite delightful.

                    Ok so here goes...

                    My VERY first B&W (processing) attempts - SO LETS KNOW WHAT I SHOULD HAVE BEEN DOING TO QUALIFY THE SHOT FOR A GOOD B&W RENDITION.
                    ---Or maybe somebody could just do something about it and post it back.

                    The fourth one (color) was a variant first of three shots - i sort of felt the greenery obstructive . COMMENTS PLEASE.!!

                      Raj,
                      All three are truly magnificent shots, but I'm going with the original color version of the woman on the bridge. It has a marvelous sense of solitude. Thanks!

                          Thanks.
