i am looking at the effort that went into taking this picture.
The long days of train, bus & foot journeys, the sleeping in local rooms, and what all not ..

A totally different take than usual angles we have seen, you have focussed more on the fire here. Good Work.

The dark background gives the whole room to the splendid flame, it is perfect and the movement is so strong in that diagonale in fire !
pretty powerful capture!
Lovely low light shot!
Also thanks fr yr comment to my image.
amazing shot, i didn’t know people still worshiped weird ‘gods’ in this day and age… very educational…
A great shot!
The low light makes the photo!
You have matched the contrast very well.
Da! Beautiful snap! I have always wanted to visit Hridwar. Lucky guy! There was a beautiful documentary of the ganges in Discovery travel and living. Beautiful take macha!
Its a stunning photograph and the moment it clicks!
great use of the light of the fire
Super shot man. The fire and it’s light on the man’s face looks wonderful. Great great shot. I wish I had so many replies I like you
such a unique capture, full of action and depth. I imagine one really needs to know what they are doing with this sort of prayer.
hi joshi, amazing picture, I like the great contrast, black background and fire always a nice mixture
Terrific! The fire is so well captured and the priest’s averted face underlines the impression of heat and power.
Looks like a dangerous shot! What have you been photographing these days? Hope your well. Take care.
Firefighter? So clear and sharp, full of feelings. Really fine, I like leave my eyes on this capture. Thanks for sharing!
Joshi, great work! As usual!
Great contrasts! nice captured
Beautiful! You got the right exposure wich is not really easy…
I am running out of words to describe these shots
I am really amazed how you have managed lighting in this shot… too much is going on here usually. Not really easy to have such balanced composition. But you have really managed this brilliantly.
Impressive shot, the shape of the fire is fascinating, looks like a dragon. Excellent exposure and ambiance.
Wow, so impressive! great art!
A warm atmosphere in this excellent capture, well done!
Exquisitely Beautiful and I love knowing and hearing about the context of the action. The priest seems to be truly directing the energy of the moment towards a soon to be manifested outcome.
terrific capture! the light from that fire, the composition, it is all really terrific
lovely shot buddy..love the fire shot
Nice action shot…looks quiet dangerous !
cool image..wow..that fire flame came out gorgous! And I like the warm tones / light on him!
you have managed just perfectly…great tactic to keep it focussed.
btw, why it has to be this big ?
