As summer approaches in India, common scenes are that of sugarcane juice vendors and ‘Lassi’ vendors (shake made from curd with sugar and ice) doing brisk business. But… it requires great deal of immunity to consume and digest these drinks from the road side vendors :)

I like these! I prefer the last image, as it is more candid, but the subject matter of the previous images is very interesting. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you RexGig.
Real justice could be done to the plethora of subjects and opportunity that throng the streets here, by some one having good skill with the camera. But I am practicing too :)

Regards,

Interesting set, the colours show a dynamic place in that market. Nice work.


Cheers

Thanks 4xxxx.
That place is colourful and has lot of life, being a market place.
Another motivation to enhance photography skills so that these places can be represented in a true fashion.

Regards,

cool pics great subjects. :) Had a look at your exif data, you used the flash in the 1st,3rd and 4th picture. The shutter speed is up at 1/200 freezing the movement.

When you look at the second picture your shutter speed is 1/80 and there is a bit of motion blur visible on the left and right person. Its looks like a grey and overcast day, consider increasing your iso to 400 or more to give you a faster shutterspeed. Even being further away from the subject and then zooming it may help in isolating them more, might give it another perspective worth trying.

Thanks a lot maxjj.
As you too are from Australia, more reasons to plan a visit there; Jumping kangaroo shots to be discussed over fosters :)

These shots were taken while working on March assignment and so no scope to zoom in beyond 50 mm FF ie 33mm on my D5000. But yes will try with more zoom for subject isolation for other photos.
The day was very sunny, in fact too much light at 2-00PM. People can be seen using umbrellas. ISO was on auto. You are very right that ISO should have been boosted or flash should have been used on the second shot too (now I better understand the advantages of direct access buttons :oops: ). Flash - rear-slow, was used for different reason for different photos:

Shot 1- The subjects were in shadow of the buildings and also sun tilting opposite to me. So used flash for this one. Subject not very far, so –ve compesation.

Shot 3- The faces were in shadow of a shade over head and without flash at 200 ISO was coming dark. Spot metering from face might have blown out too much of lighter objects.

Shot 4- I was at an angle of almost 45 degree to the fruit seller who was in shadow and as is visible from the 45 degree shadow near the girl's leg, the sun was almost on the lens. To counteract the sun into lens and to get the details of seller, flash was used. Since subject was comparatively near, so dialed in –ve compensation.


Regards,
