Having been in India, I know this situation is very authentic.  What camera and lens was used to produce the image?  The barber and the man getting a shave pop into the foreground very  nicely.  Additionally, the detail of those men is excellent.  

What f stop was used?  Could the image have been captured with the lens wide-open.  More bokeh would help the impact.  However, it is an interesting moment in life on the street.

Hopeful, everyone figured out the above  post was intended for "The Barber Of Pushkar,"

Raaj, the colors in this image are penetrating.  Was this taken with the Z7?  

One comment: As I spend time with this image, I do not see a focal point.  I personally need a focal point because taking in the entire image is a little overwhelming.  Are the lock and door knob the foci?  If you agree, think about the manner in which post-processing would lead the viewer first to that area.

I believe this image has potential and is worthy to be rendered in several versions.

I agree with Larry.  My eye wanders into the lighter areas of these lovely colours at the top of the image.  Some selective processing can lead my eye to the lock and the handle.   Love the colours.

Raaj,

I was there with you and I do love this image.  The colors are amazing.  Larry, I can vouch that this was taken with the Z7.  Raaj carried it around like a baby for part of two days.  I took many images here and I was on a one track mind about getting totally abstract images with an emphasis on creating textures for future composites.  That is an issue I have to work on.  I generally walk into a situation with a preconceived notion of what I want to capture.  I often regret missed opportunities later upon reflection.

Thanks, @lleonard, @uswitucha, @dshelton!

Larry and Ulana, for me the subject of this image is he color palette and I intentionally added blur to the door lock as I did not want that to be the focus!

Larry, image was made with the Z7 and the Irix 15mm/2.4, a lens that I'm beginning to fall in love with.

Cheers!
