Mysore - Flower festival at night

In retrospect when seeing my photos of Mysore, flowers have played an important role.
During my visit I wasn’t so aware of that.
I promise that these are the last pictures of the flower and plant festival.

The quality of my photos here isn't too good; I had no possibility to put my camera on something stable.
I hope the atmosphere is clear.

Nightly saris in the WS.

Bonjour, cher Paul,
Ces lieux illuminés brillant de mille feux forment un ensemble merveilleux.
Une sorte de Palais des mille et un nuits !
Très bien présenté.

Goedemorgen Paul,

De vier foto's zijn allemaal mooi om naar te kijken.
Maar de hoofd foto is natuurlijk iets bijzonder met de octopus als figuur.
Mooi foto werk, we genieten met zijn alle van uw werk.

Prettig weekend,

Hello Paul,
All photos are well taken considering the circumstances, and all the arrangements of the flower festival are quite amazing. As always I find people very important for creating an interesting atmosphere, so I personally prefer any of the two last workshop photos. Maybe you are not totally satisfied with them technically, but so many people in colourful clothes walking among the flowers late at night, with the illuminated palace in the background, is such an amazing sight.
Best regards,

Magnificent displayed flowers and lights, Paul.
Excellent night photo, technicals were superbly set, and the outcome is attractive and impressive.
My cong.s for this, have a nice weekend,

Salut Paul,
Impressionnant et splendide ces lumières et couleurs, bien capturée cette vue de nuit, originale cette pieuvre, joli fond avec ce monument illminé.

Hello Paul,
Another colorfull capture from Mysore. Taken with perfect light management and sharpness.
Quite eyecatching, nice framing
TFS and best regards

Hello Paul,

What you have shown us, by this excellent series of photographs, is the colour, the light and the friendly atmosphere of this flower festival. It is something I would have loved to experience but, never mind, I almost feel that I have been there by way of your photographs. I'm not surprised that you were subconsciously taken over by these flower displays for they are visually entrancing. The fact that so many people have journeyed to experience this festival speaks volumes!
I would have hated to chose the main post, for the photographs are all so expressive in their own way.
Don't worry about the main post, for a photograph taken without a rigid stand, this is amazingly sharp and well composed.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Paul,

Um show de beleza estas flores em forma de polvo. Um fantástico festival este e uma excelente foto e composição.

Parabéns e bom domingo
