Rakesh,

The lighting is perfect. This one really draws you into the scene. The man wearing the darker clothing has the bearing of a professor and the postures of the two bring to mind a deep interesting conversation. The man in the red coat looks as if he wants to be part of it, but is outside of it. Very creative use of the smoke to further seperate the two "worlds".

Best,
Rachel

Rakesh, I look at your images and learn more about the craft and art of photography with each new image you post. Thank you!!! I really like the train car in the shadows it's another point for the mind to ponder, who among the three has arrived and who is leaving. Did this conversation start on the train or here where the men are?
And so many other questions like these.
Your capture of the light is superb.
Sir you are truly a master.
