Busy chaos

Part 2 of 3, Thaipusam in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

This photo almost got pushed into the reject bin, but it grew on me the more times i looked at it. So many problems with the composition — the haunting stare of the little girl is too far away, it’s way too busy with too many points of interest, the foreground and background don’t seem well defined. Where does this photo “begin”? Then i started looking into it with context, the setting, the people, the chaos caused by both and common interactivity between them with the rubbish all over. The juxtaposition of the human fallout and the sobriety of the religious event.
