Another marvel at Sriram's***
You did not answer me last time :) How do you get those colors ? Post-process ? Which one ? It's always so bright and colorful at your place, i Love this, quite rare*

@k@: K@, Thanks a lot... I always try to limit my post processing to just curves... Its just important to get to basics importantly the aperture, shutter speed and exposure to be spot on... And many a times I get an interesting subject with right amount of aesthetics to obtain an overall neat composition. I got a glimpse of this guy all of a sudden and I shot him from inside my car.... thanks to my patient wife and the equipment that I carried that day, I could capture him as I had visualized...

Marie-Jezaria from Paris, France

eme chiquilla from córdoba, Spain

awesome catch!
has anyone noticed the opposition between the metal shutter lines (horizontal) and the vertical lines of his blanket, and how his left arm his half following the metal shutter lines and the lower half is blanket alinged? i think it helps the photo to be greater in composition :)
