She is so apprehensive and overwhelmed by the moment, you can see it in her face even from the side. Amazing photo
Wonderful! To me the composition suggests the weight of the patriarchy is about to really create her life.
Goddess about to enter the train...cute.
Effectively highlights an individual against a backdrop of the many.... and has a sense of something impending about it. Great image.
The composition and subject matter makes this picture amazing.. a great capture, well done... thanks for sharing.
The light is perfect with composition but the bride's face looked so sad...I hope that she will be happy with her marriage.
this is one of my favorite photos on earth. It is beyond description. Everything looks perfect to me. Story telling, composition, color, light, and so on. Love this photo.
Supperb.. The colors, the light but the most interesting on the photo is really the emotion ... congrats!
The filtered light is what captured my attention next to the bride and the colour of her dress. Striking.
vry nice... actually i want to uplod some pics which i captured...what should i do...?? can i hav a reply about this... plz!!
Great !! Most of the people in Bangladesh are living under poverty but it doesn't impact on their happiness.
They always expecting a new hope.... this picture is such a great example.....
The composition of the photo is excellent, but what really gets me about the photo are the beams of light seeping through and above the small crowd on top of the train. The best part of the photo
What an elegant and beautiful shot. The brides gown is as vibrant as she is stunningly beautiful. The lighting streaming through people sitting atop the train is brilliant! Such an incredible shot! Great Work!
Amazing image. Not only is there clarity and sharpness in the bride, but there's movement and action in the background that enhances the sense of time. The light is beautiful. Great capture.
Added: Also, there is a great story in the image that communicates a real message to viewers.
Wow. Great photo with the sun shining through and the bride standing out so well. What a horrible way to travel. I think I would prefer the roof to being jammed inside with the all those people. I wonder how many people fall off.
The bride either looks very sad or she's just nervous. Anyhow I suppose it's again one of those fixed marriages.
@Nancy Goldsen Would you be happy if you had to get on a train like that? :)
