Men riding the bus from Kasol to Delhi. Wasn't level with the bus hence the skewed lines. Will get hit for it I'm sure.

Alright, ribbon number 2. Frankly, there were MUCH BETTER images in the challenge that met MEM's style more than mine. But well, can't complain :) Thank you for the votes and the lovely comments.

Hello from the critique club...

To tell you the truth I had to look up who Mary Ellen Mark was before I critiqued this pic. I think you matched her style nicely. I agree with your comment about the pic being skewed. That to me is a bit distracting but it didn't seem to hurt your score. I really like the man looking directly at the camera. I think that adds tons of interest for me. To be quite honest I have no negatives for you. (That's a good thing I hope) Congrats on the ribbon. In my opinion well deserved. Happy shooting

You are much too modest - this is wonderful and every bit a winner. Congratulations on the ribbon.

Very strong image romil and you made the right choice in the end to get your second of many ribbons I'm sure :) It would seem that street photography is your 'thing'.

Nice street shot, but it seems more candid than intentional like much of Mark's work.
