Women Today

Topic related to Women’s day, many enthusiastic photographers captured the women today. Few of the images deserve appreciation.

03 March Women Today 05

The images submitted by Xciba Angel were very powerful in terms of content and composition. It is about the fighting against all odds….  The child watching her mother carrying a heavy load and the sweat in red in her under arms are adding the value for the visual. The mother and child at the vital points with the ascending stairs in the other vital point make the picture for a perfect composition.

The next image by Xciba is again a strong picture which shows the expression of a hard working woman at par with men in a tough working environment. The legs of a man on the left and the woman with heavy load on the right are just perfect for the topic. The hard light with strong shadows speaks a lot about the scene.

The image by Nivethan, women carrying a gas cylinder on her lap as a pillion rider is a superb shot in the urban life style. The panning effect makes the motion perfect and the sharing of work responsibilities of any kind for the family is well represented. But again the picture tells about the risk of carrying a gas cylinder on a scooter. Note that both the riders are not wearing helmet. A little more space towards the direction of movement could have made the picture better.

03 March Women Today 03

Image by Pon Viswanathan, is about a street flower vendor showing the interesting attire and character. The composition is fine but the image looks little too flat. May the use of flash is little too much. The tree in the middle of the frame distracts the content of the story.

Image by Kranthi – Though a simple straight portrait, the expression of the woman is best captured. The exposure is just perfect and so is the composition. The controlled depth of field gives a beautiful separation of the women from the background. It is not directly fitting on to the theme, ….but, yes, it is good street portrait.
