[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Every day you will find these women selling their wares near an entrance to the ghats. Pilgrims, cows, monkeys, and tourists pass by constantly. Puskar is a peaceful quaint village, home of the famous Camel Festival, when thousands of camels appear to be bought or sold.

Lovely colours - both dress and foods. It has an authentic, natural, unposed feel - your vantage point allowed you to take the photo without the camera impacting on the women.

Hello Gloria,

A frame filled with colours and life!
I like the elevated view giving a good impression of the scene...

Hi gloria

A colourful market scene with good sharpness & color. Excellent downward pov. Tfs!

nice coverage with flavour of India.
God bless you.


A beautiful photograph of the activity of a market. light is very beautiful, very bright. the image shows a fine sharpness and composition is interesting.

A nice picture,

Hi Gloria,

I really like this shot and don't know how I missed it. The vegetables look so delicious and at their peak ripeness. The clothing also tells a story as one knows it is taken in India. The bright color of their clothing, vegetables, and the repetition of the circular baskets, all make for a charming photo of your travels.
