I used 2 system to capture. Those that are with compressed view is taken with 5D MK3 with 85mm F1.8. Majority of Shots is wide open. Others is taken with Sony Nex 5 Kit lens 18-55mm. Canon system colour is richer easier to processed.

I processed all shots using lightroom 4, depending on lights/images changing mostly WB, Saturation, Vibrance, contrast, blackness, highlights, clarity, sharpness, tone graph and some selective adjust on background for brightness/contrast and lighten subjects. Majority has been preset depending on camera and lenses used.

And clicked only when natural lights is favourable, thaipusam the best natural lights for me so far is 7 am ++ till 10am ++, I have yet to tried shooting the event at night, hopefully can try on my 4th attempt next year...

I think there's a confusion with the "Thai" syllable in "Thaipusam". The "Thai" here is not referring to Thailand, but rather to the month of "Thai" in the Tamil calendar

Hi SooHK, from the shadow of the pole, the sun seems to be at about 2 o'clock position?
