Playing Colors

Holi is celebrated in india every year around march-april. Took this one on this year's holi when a friend is being chased down while playing with colors. Post processing was done in the lines of an earlier post bringing out colors on a black & white image.

The post processing effect is much less noticeable here but looks good. I like the combo of green face purple shirt. Is this typical Holi dress?

Jason, typical holi is like this, you wait for your friend to dress neatly and then attack him with a bunch of other friends then .. spray,sprinkle,pour colors on him and obviously spoil his dress, then pop a dozen eggs on his head and half a dozen tomatoes all over him and make him stink yet colorful. Any color can be used, not just the ones in the picture.

Nice one, I took some pictures for part of the Ganesh Festival here yesterday. Will post one or 2 images sometime. Not as colourful as this though :)
