I got this shot while I was covering the Rath Yatra event at Kolkata. The devotees were throwing their hands in the air and chanting the hymns/mantras. I went close to them and framed the shot using their hands as a frame. I then converted it into monochrome to make it more dramatic, as excess of colors in the frame were distracting me.
I am Ayan Mukherjee from West Bengal, India, born on 4.11.1988.
I am mad about photography.
I bought a point and shoot camera of Sony Cybershot (MODEL -DSC W300) in May,2009. From then I got interested to play with my camera. I am a great lover of photography. It's my hobby as well as passion too. I want to do something big in the field of photography and for this I am working hard. I am a self learner. I learn through experiments and photographic books. I also keep on downloading books to learn Digital photography in more depth.
I mainly shoot landscapes and nature,also love to do street photography capturing tit bits of everyones daily life in the city.
I love to travel a lot for the sake of photography and i really enjoy visitng new places.
I love to shoot Moon(my most favourite subject).But I am unable to capture the craters of Moon with my camera, which I regret the most.
I am working hard on Night photography as i have some technical limitations in my camera.I know that if i can get a dSLR i can really rock the world with my photographs. Connect with Ayan Mukherjee on:

... as long as there's an advanced Maths course in a (not necessarily) nearby country. He's known for pushing friends into the most expensive photographic equipment... several family inheritances have been wasted, but they often acknowledge his smart advices. Owner of a clinical eye, he can spot perfection amidst chaos as easily as a small imperfection on a perfect photo. He's also an occasional stork stalker and, above all, a caring father of two beautiful children. Gastão's current location: Covilhã, Portugal.
... give us a hand. He's our Computer Science genius and is currently addicted to photographing cats. He's a natural born optimist who makes a joke out of anything... don't mess with his Toyota though. Eventually, his stocks will rise from death and he'll invest in livestock and vineyards. He's got highly trained fingers either playing the piano or shortcutting photoshop. We hope he'll stick around after marrying his college sweetheart. In the mean time, he'll dissect every submitted photograph into binary code. Pedro's current location: Covilhã, Portugal.
... would only be true if reading travel, geographic and surfing books/magazines accounted some mileage. He checks his e-mail every 2 minutes and he's often seen going cold-turkey when offline. Still divided between several walks of life, he strongly believes in Murphy's law "If anything can go wrong, it will". Photography plays a huge role in his life, at least judging by his conversation topics. Gray hair will eventually take the better of him. Pedro's current location: Covilhã, Portugal.
