Hi All,

Here is a picture of a bewildered girl also captured in the busy Ranganathan Street in T. Nagar, Chennai. I would appreciate your feedback and comments.

Very nice. I think it would have been cool to have the people in the back slightly more in focus, and I say that because it's a culture-rich photo and the background might have brought a bit more of that to the picture, but that's just my opinion.

Great try! It looks like the lens focused on the little girls shirt instead of her face...
I agree with tryin to have the lady in the background more in focus too-maybe just like a soft focus because it certainly would add to the story here.

Hi Ranjit,

It is a same the eyes are not in focus but in some respects that pales when you look at the composition. The young girl in the foreground combined with the shallow DOF and the older lady out of focus in the background is simply stunning. Not only a contrast in size but age and detail, fantastic spot. ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
