A picture of a family of beggars in Baktapur temple in Nepal. I like this picture so much. I believe it does fit the challnege because not only do I see busy thoughts, hands, etc. , but my composition is also busy.

Have revisited this photo many times. At first I wasn't sure of the white figure. But the more I look at it the more it really "belongs" there. Sort of creeps me out, but it kind of looks like death looking over her shoulder. This is so powerful, just does not fit in busy...feels like a slow motion moment. Anyway, just had to comment again and add it to my favorites plus stop complaining about anything.

Manny,

Great composition.

I love the triangles--classic! Mother's head to each child's head and the the two found in the mother's clothing - red triangle and multi-coloured triangle. There are others but those are the most dominant.

I also love their eyes. All three looking outward and up but in a different directions while the person in white (background) is looking inward and down.

A great top 10.

Great sense of colour and composition, as usual, but even more difficult to achieve this time with moving subjects. Excellent shot. Congratulations!

Has a great "National Geographic" feel to it, and it certainly meets the challenge as far as the lady is concerned! Great job with the toning... the colors are great!

A beautiful and touching image. It instantly reminded me of a photo by Danny Lyon titled Mother with her child, although I like yours best :) My very fave for this challenge. 10

very much an exotic Other, great colours, but it does not say 'busy' in my view
I hope you took the time to give her a hand

I get the title but my emotion is not 'busy'. They are frozen in the instant.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Poignant in the desperation conveyed. Love it. Doesn't belong in this challenge tho'. I understand what you're getting at but without the title, it wouldn't have crossed my mind at all.

2nd look and bumping it up anyway - 8.

sooooo awesome. perfect DOF. vibrant colors. heart wrenching. you can see the emotion in her eyes... having been to several countries like that i am in awe of how you captured the need in a photograph. definitely national geographic material :)

Very good. Gets my top score.

Wonderful photo! She's busy, indeed! How did you achieve such great tonality? I thought that's possible only for medium format.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/02/2005 01:41:37 PM
Wow, love the rich colors. Great National Geographic-like pic!

Wow! Very strong image.

Just the background on this one. Maybe black and white because of it. Now get out there and edit this one right for this is a great emotional photograph and you can darken that background with PS and keep it in color. I like it.

Like the image, very powerful, but the white in the background is throwing me off a bit... but nevertheless, well done on a great shot.
