Welcome back. Good to find U with a bang. Who says your D 200 with 55/200 mm is in sufficient?

Despite all we hear about Calcutta, there is plenty evidence here of people's prosperity
with all those cars. Superb action image of the horses.
Good to have you back.

The going looks hard. The essence of the day summed up in a picture. Nicely done, Debu.

Beautifully captured image. I think it would benefit from having much of the car park cropped out though.
