“I ” think that change in the angle at which it is been shot could have made it better

The highlights on the nails are striking, and you really got the whole sensuous air that the subject must have had
kudos for this photo. Joshy, You are a photographer.
great photo, as allways. light, composion and depth of field in particularly. just wondering does that handsign mean anything? happy TC!
definitely unique… very different from cliche shots of kathakali…usually prominence is given to colors associated with this it..here you have highlighted the essence ‘the mudras’
You have a very good eye for light. Keep up the good work.
Amazing photo…I love the warm color, the soft glow of light, and the unique opportunity to capture something for the “point” theme! Stunning…
An ancient art of our country–still basics are unknown to most of us.Artistic!
Wonderful shot. Beautiful use of light.

Great noise free low light image. I specially love the frame and the focus.
OMG..It’s very beautiful..Are there any more mudra shots..As a kid I used to watch their chamayam and was quite fascinated by it…
