Jodhpur, a city with the nickname The Blue City, is a place that embraces colour like no other with its abundance of vibrant hues. This is pretty magical, especially in the everyday attire of the women, the strength and vibrancy on the clothes, the food, the streets, buildings and even the evening sun is so incredible.

A certain set of colours and combinations which may be bright and high on contrast, yet they are in harmony with the rustic surroundings.

Another beautiful pic from there,this time form the heart of old city painted in blue,the composition is lovely,very sharp and well exposed,reminds a lot of city of Morocco painted in the same way. Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano

Hello Abmdsudi,
The image is well composed; the ladies in their colourful attire are ideally placed and make a lovely contrast with the blue walls of the city. Perfect technical realisation.

Bonjour, cher Abmdsudi,
Encore une image très plaisante à regarder Ce bleu colorant les murs ne manque pas d'étonner.
Les personnages en marche aux habits colorés font ressortir avec bonheur la composition en général.

Hell Aabmdsudi,

Your notes display your love and appreciation of this city and that is reflected in the warmth and honesty of the photographs.
The blue buildings are quite remarkable. With the jagged upper decorations, they look like jaws opening to reveal the women that they have been protecting! As you say, the ladies are vibrantly attired and they add so much to the overall effect of the composition.

Have a lovely day,
Bev :-)

Dear abmdsudi,

Composition-wise its a very good photo, leading my eyes towards the background with the ladies in their colourful clothes, which highlight them from the blue surroundings.

Have a nice Sunday!
Best Wishes,

Bravo et amitié

Bonjour Abmdsudi,

C'est presque incroyable l'effet du bleu sur les murs de cette ville. Cela contraste bien avec le rouge des vêtements de ces dames. Superbe effet entonnoir.



Dear Abmdsudi

This is such a characteristic photo. The rich blue tones contrast so nicely with the costumes of your subjects on the left. I love the perspective of the diagonal lines and the off-centre composition. Another cracker, that reminds me very much of something we'd see from Steve McCurry. Congratulations.

Have a beautiful weekend

Hello Abmdsudi
Well one can easily spot why Jodhpur is called the blue city. These blue houses are stunning and the colorful saris of the women a good contrast to all this blue. Nice scene from a beautiful indian city indeed.

Hello Abmdsudi,
Wow, what a great street, the houses look so wonderful with these very blue walls and I really like the wide variety of different shades of blue a lot. The streetscape is extra attractive too thanks to the bright colours of the people's clothing and the inclusion of the motorbikes and scooters on the right.

Hello Abmdsudi,
Great view of this colorful street with blue façades of houses.Good composition,very good perspective and depth.
Fine presentation.

Hello Abmdsudi,a lovely composition with the bright blue of the buildings; I notice that even the drainpipe is blue!
I like the off-centre ladies in their brightly coloured clothes.A run-down looking place but nevertheless full of charm.
Thanks for sharing, regards Jean.

Ciao Abmdsudi

Fantastic warm cold color contrasts between the women at left in their red saris and the blue tones of the walls and facades of the buildings. Good sharpness and perspective. Tfs!

Hello Abmdsudi,
Another attractive shot of the Blue City.
Good view of the many different architectural details of these buildings. The huge blue walls make it such an unreal sight.
I note that the number of motorcycles has increased enormously since my visit to Rajasthan.
A very pretty contrast is created by the colourful clothes of these Rajasthani ladies.
Best regards, Paul

Hi Abmdsudi
you know i'm going to love this scene, when I was walking around the streets in India, I was looking for scenes exactly like this :)

really like the perspective lines, the depth, and the splashes of reds against the blues. good to see the brick underneath the blue on the right side as well. wonderful cheers
