Amazing rope of flowers and very colorful picture.
May be you could try to cut the top of picture to focus more on the hands and the flowers?
Charles Dastodd: Thanks, that is a good idea smile

Must be a huge market for them Charles
Charles Dastodd: Yes, well keep in mind this market is in a metro area of over 14 million people. smile
This is a story telling photo, what an effort to make those flower ropes!
We agree with Akaruiphoto, try to cut it and let the hands and the flowers do the talking -
Where is it ?
Nice colortones and interresting shot !
Charles Dastodd: It is at the flower market in Kolkata, India. smile

Your blasts of colour never failed to impress me. Great photograph, Charles! All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.
Charles Dastodd: Thank you, Fritsch. I am hoping to get back to India sometime in the next year. I miss it very much.
Great shot and beautiful colors !
What a wonderful pattern of clolours in those bunches Charles.
Your shots from this flower market are amazing. The guy at the left of frame seems to be admiring his neighbor's flower ropes -- might have been the one that taught him how to make them. I agree with others that the hands and flowers would be a great shot, but this one tells a different story than the hands would.
Amazing ropes - what on earth do they do with them all?!

Fantastic shot, full of wonderful color. I, too, think the focus on the hands would be good, but like someone else mentioned this tells a different story with the glance of the one at the work of the other. Well done.
i like this one a lot. particularly the crossed hands and the way the wrap is crossed as well.
