Well this is a common issue in India. We often cross them watching drenching in the rain while we are under a shade. May be this is what is called system. I have tried to capture the helplessness where the tear is some where hidden into the rain. tried to keep the rain water droplets like the lines with low shutter speed. Thank you.
Help me finding the faults this picture has, and help to rectify that. Like to have some suggestion about shooting in rain and in low light condition.

Suberb. This is what photography is all about.

Small suggestions, - the colour tone is a little too blue, and it look like youve tried to reduce highlight tone on the right, and its a little too apparent.


Ive adjusted both in the modification.

1/50 at 500mm is quite an achievement, - this child was really frozen.



Regards


Willie

Excellent and very evocative shot. You guys do always remind us how fortunate we are on occasion, but I don't like dwelling on it. That is because we as a country give India £Millions each year which one of your government ministers declared as "Peanuts". Your government can afford a new fleet of fighter aircraft when we cannot. Your country can afford a space programme, whilst we cannot - but despite all this the wealth there is in India, never seems to spread downwards to the ordinary people. That is what makes this so evocative for me. So thanks you for sharing it.

I don't think that Kumal had any political motives behind his picture. Yes India has a space programme and they make their own fighter airplanes. United States had a space programme while many homeless people lived and died in carton boxes. India is a vast country with long history and a culture of casts, which if I am not mistaken is still ongoing. I don't know what the U.K. sends to India but India had been exploited from its resources during Imperial times. Let's keep politics out of this. Each to their own.

Well sir thank you for your comment. pablophotographer sir is right that there were no political influence in my mind while taking this picture, but on the contrary i can never blew your words too. That India is now full of corruption. which is causing lots of loss here. Poor becoming poorer day by day. while they(Gov.) are planing to buy some combat aircraft (India doesn't make Aircraft) they are not thinking about these people. now we are into a system where there is no rescuer.. haha

Kunal, Politics and power are like a spoon.
It's always so sweet, no-one wants to give it up, everywhere in the world, .

I am aware of Hindustan Aeronautics Limited, you do make your own airplanes (HAL Tejas) I think you get the engines from abroad. (Check in wikipedia under Indian airforce).

I never suggested that there was, but I explained how the picture made me feel and what it reminded me of.

As I said "very evocative".

Never ever rely on wikipedia, it is a useless and unreliable source of information, as you have just discovered.
