Holi is the Festival of colors. Holi celebrates the triumph of ‘good’ over ‘bad’ and is celebrated by people throwing colored powder and colored water at each other. Bonfires are lit the day before. Holi is celebrated on Phalgun Purnima which comes in the later part of February or March.

Beautiful portrait. While her face may be painted, her eyes are just so expressive.
Good one mate!
Holi is the festival of colours and you were able to bring it to the picture, but its a festival of fun and happiness too, just because she looks a bit confused,not able to feel the happiness.
But as a portrait, it stands TOP.
i’m pink therefore i’m jam :) very strong look she gave you, great portrait, she doesn’t look too pleased about being pink tho
Such a strong photograph and amazing expression. Very well captured
Wonderful and love the way he looks at you.
This is a great portrait Joshi. That gaze is intense.
I bet she loved getting pink. My son would love to be all colors.

The reflections in her eyes are amazing and mesmorizing. Excellent photo.

I enjoyed going thru ur blog in the morning ,by evening I happen to browse the below book.
Just wanted to compare this photo with a picture on the Jacket of ” The Maximum city:Bombay lost and found” These two are so similar yet different feelings.
just visiting ur blog….great photography…
added ur site to my blog
Great tones and beautiful clear focus on her eyes.
I love the use of light, and the great character :) – What a look that one has.. Real warrior :)
Beautiful, love the expression!
nice expressions on the girl!!! great capture
Really expressive portrait…light, dof and tones…all the ingredients are optimal!
The Eyes Tell All! Great Shoot!
That’s a great portrait. Her eyes show her life’s story, there is so much expression.
I like the contrast behind the pink powder and the strong stare…almost a glare.
Very well done. Really very well done. Really like this shot. Great composition, and mood. Great portrait.
Lovely shot… something about the picture that makes it stand out from the ordinary. That reddish color just pops on the monochromatic background, and the composition works great.
The uncurrent red makes the eyes pop up, superb.
I love the focus on the eyes and the colour. Looking at the other photos you have a great eye for the small details that make great art.
This is just an awesome portrait
Wonderful shot. Striking.
This Indian serie is fabulous – this picture reminds me the great work of Steve McCurry, bravo !
wonder why he looks irritated
The red makes her gaze more heartbraking, good (photographic) idea :)
this image was a turning point in your street photography … still one of my fave ones
This is super stuff mate. Lovely portrait Dan. Focus. What expression captured.
what an expression..and the eyes..I guess only you can capture such emotions…
I know it may sound a little cliche by now but beautiful capture. expressive eyes
wonderful shot…nice expression n rich colours!
realy a awsom portrait just loved it..
I see it as boy. but ok ok anything can happen. difference are very less these days :)
BEAUTIFUL , SUCH BRIGHT & SHINY EYES.
Now this is just one amazing expression you have captured here, I wouldn’t want that kid getting mad at me ;-)
It could be different from giving just simple information about Holi the pic about telling the truth of poor people those can celebrate any holidays and the all days are equal on their lives
she looks boyish.. :) nice capture.
Nice work. I can see the reflection in the eyes.
those eyes with the red face, compliments so well and captured superbly!
Beautiful pic, love it.
