This image is of Lord Krishna, sittig on the lap of lord Ganesha, and the image was taken when this 16 feet idol was being painted (for a religious ceremony).
Lord Krishna, is known for his mischiefs in his childhood and specailly "Raas Leela".
I have been brought up in a (Hindu) religious family. So my child-hood has been mostly influenced by the stories of Lord Krishna and his child hood. I never had the freedom to do a lot of things that I wanted to do and the fear of the Supernatural powers predominantly constrained my thoughts associated with freedom to do all!
This image of Lord Krishna (in his childhood) is a reflection of my dreams to have a childhood like his, as read in the religious stories.

My apologies to all for touching a subject that may not interest most of the list members here. Thanks a ton to Lisae for encouraging!

I've put this photo in my favourites. I guess I was the only one who gave it 10. That's so sad :(. Sanandan, you'll just have to take more photos that are understandable by the average American before you can get the kind of score you deserve... but then they wouldn't have the uniqueness I love... bah.

This is kind of creepy...and definately not from my childhood, but I am sure it is from someones. It really is a beautiful photo, but it kind of looks like it's bleeding. either that or not totally painted or something. You captured the angle beautifully. and the lighting is great. I like how the subject fills the whole photo. Great job and good luck in the challenge.

Lovely light and shadow. Really pops off the screen at me. Dont understand the idea but I like the image a lot. Very central framing, though. 8 - floyd.

this is a great pic, but the connection to the challenge is very weak, imo. (6) ~mcmurma

definitely a stretch for the "childhood" theme, but a nicely done photo nonetheless. my only suggestion would be not to center the subject so much, but rather more it off to one side a bit (in this case, the right side to make it look like she figure is looking into the photo instead of out of it.)

This is so beautiful! She's sitting on Ganesha's knee :). I love Ganesha, I just finished making a 3d computer model of him. Is this Sanandan's photo? It's my favourite so far. I wish I could give it more than 10, but that will have to do! - lisae

nice colors and light.

I think the challenge is extremely weak, sorry. As far as the photo goes, I just don't see much interest in it. It's a picture of a statue - there needs to be something special to make it more than that. 3, just-married

OK, sorry. This is a very nice photograph, but AGAIN, it has NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS CHALLENGE.

This is a neat photo... I must say that I'm a bit lost on how this image relates to childhood... I'm assuming that this statue is that of a child sitting on the knee of an adult? There may be a culture barrier between this image and my understanding of it :) - jmsetzler

This is a wonderful photo. I think I get the idea, might be a little abstract of a concept for the majority. Looks like the statue is in the middle of a paint job?

Sorry, the connection with Childhood escapes me here. Nice, clean image though. 6 Journey
