    Thank you all so much for everyone for providing your feedback and valuable comments on my pictures. Certainly, these comments help to take pictures in futures which I never knew/cared. FYKI, I took this pictures in Pyuthan while crossing the Bijayapur Bazaar by motor. Road was dusty and days were cold. Local women who were sitting the roadside, trying to save from morot created dust.

    Specially, I would like to thank to Shutterbug/EU and jiten for proving the wonderful forum to me.

    Thank you all for participating and by dropping your honest verdicts. Viewing any picture and express in words the way one feel inside is not always an easy thing. It takes some perseverance and interest in photography to learn this art of seeing a ‘Picture’.

    Dear Niraj Sapkota
    Thank you so much for your suggestion regarding putting Snapshot’s caption and short description which I will definitely helps more EU Viewers to do their verdicts. I will keep your suggestion in mind for my next EU Viewer’s Verdict.

    This is not a good snapshot without a doubt and Arjun Dhakal could improve lot things in this snapshot at the point when he took it. First of all it’s not well framed which is why it looks very unbalanced and we do get uneasy feeling while viewing it. And it should have framed from eyelevel like one of the commentator said earlier. Including more background would have hold much information. But expressions of these there women can make us have this curiosity why they are trying to tap their nose. So even to give our verdict it would have been much better if Shutterbug can give us small photo caption, just to make sure intention of photographer. Because photo caption sometimes give totally different perspective to the picture. Just my small suggestion.

    Anyway, kudos to this effort to wake photographer within us. I have recently bought Nikon D60 and would love to share my shapshot someday here in EU.

    It’s a Candid shot and moment caught nicely. It may fail to be a good photo but I guess that’s joy of ‘Candid shot’. Moment freezed in time and gives some tickle in our mind.

    I’d first like to say to Arjun Dhakal that “well tried”. It’s always easy to comment on others picture, but I think these comments make us think before we click next time.
    First of all, picture looks good at first glance but I think it’s not composed well. It’s always a problem with us who are beginners in this field that we take picture from our eyelevel. In this picture also it seems as if we are looking those women from top. It’s always important to give the subject a dignified look. Sometime we have to kneel down, if needed we have to lie down on the ground. It gives us a very well balanced and eye-catching picture. Second point that I felt is Picture would have look much better if you have included that House in the background keeping slightly low angle. It would have effect the overall composition of the picture as well as would provide the information about the surrounding.
    Keep clicking and keep sharing.

    Interesting shot. Seem like they are troubled with “Stinking Kathmandu” and trying to avoid digusting smell of polluted and dirty Kathmandu.
