"Moving with ease,
In gentle breeze,
Now you can dream,
Under sun beam,
Of distant port,
A journey made short,
Thank-you calm sea,
For carrying me ".....JamesW Thorpe

Location : Puri ( Orissa ) Sea beach
Time : At sunset

I like this image for its colors and the compo with the sunset sun just above the boat and the fishermen as silhouettes

Hello, Wondedrful soft hues of sunset. Nice silhouette photo at the oceans edge. I like your composition too of placing the canoe and people off to the right side.

Very good composition and crop

wonderful sunset,where I love the colors and their softness,and where I love the black silhouettes of people and boat just under the sun.This is superbly framed,the line of horizon at the right place,and the sea doing a triangle.Magnificent!

Nice sunset picture with lovely pink hues, and the boats and fishermen silhouetteswell framed under the sinking sun.

Beautiful poem to accompany the image. An image as beautiful as the poem itself. Love the soft and gentle texture of the evening, the golden sunset as the fisherman wraping up a day work...Good night, peaceful dream, tomorrow is another journey.

Long time no new post?
Nice scene from sunset...the red ball of the sun is well placed in the frame. Framing well done in a diagonal. Silhouette of the boat & the 2 fishermen are highlights. Well done!

Beautiful picture of a sunset in Puri. The sun and the silhouetes if the fishers in a corner adds to the picture. Congratulations.

Nice colours and superb composition! it would have been even more marvelous in panoramic view if the top part cud've been cropped.

wonderful colors to the sunset..it seems peace, calm...
s_lush (16134) 2011-10-11 7:57
This is a very elegant and highly aesthetic picture. The composition, light, colors, photographic quality and poetic note are perfect here. The tilt of skyline is rather slight, it does not spoil this beautiful sunset view. Excellent job!
bema (26425) 2011-10-11 8:02
for a landlubber like me it´s always a pleasure to have a look at a beach-sunset-scenery like here..
great in colors and mood..
keep on posting! see you around, regards Bernd

Serene moment is embracing the entire image. I am very convinced with the composition. The sun is situated far off to right with the boat and the people in silhouette. Golden passage highlights the image. There is a place like this in this world. I truly enjoy the atmosphere. I thank you for visiting my little gallery. I hope your friend would find the bench agreeable.
With my warm regards,
Have a very pleasant day, Arijit
ChrisJ (114657) 2011-10-13 4:39
Almost nothing to fault here other than the horizon level tilting clockwise to the right. All else is perfect! Good color, sharpness, compo, saturation, reflections & silhouettes. Tfs!
npecanhuk (75502) 2011-10-15 4:45
That's very beautiful!!!!!
I just wished it were larger!
However, I really enjoyed the chosen pov, composition, management of light and colors!
You had a great idea, did a very good photo job and achieved such attractive visual results!
TFS - congrats,
Best regards and greetings from Brazil!

A: what a beautiful image - though perhaps a bit clichéd, it really does't matter, because it's done so well. Next time post at the full resolution if possible. It would be great for an image this well composed and lit... c

a magnificent composition at sunset time.
The organization of the elements is very elegant, I like the location of the fishermen with their boat to the right side, while the serene beauty of the beach and the sea, the Sun in the sky and the pink tones fill the rest of the picture.
boa (7375) 2011-10-24 13:21
wonderful sunset and colors ! I like the tranquil mood and your fine composition from this nice moment. It looks there is a little tilt in the picture but that is just a minor detail. It is an overall a pleasant picture, well done.
Have a nice evening.
Budapestman (82620) 2011-10-25 12:00

I don't know this region yet:)!Indian sunrise and sunset are something wonderful. A simple but very good composition, with the almost silhouettes of the little boat and people and the sun so well placed. I also like that diagonal making the division between sea/sand. Colours are very good!
macjake (68476) 2011-11-03 21:31
I can see why this one is very popular for you.
It truly does have a romantic flare to it, love the peach colors and lighting.
fantastic shot here.
ecmel (1367) 2011-11-05 5:34
The beach looks idyllic.You got a very good result here with soft natural colours.
PaulVDV (29157) 2011-11-06 17:13
Splendid daily life-picture with a wonderful mood thanks to those soft pink colours.
Excellently composed with the silhouettes of that long boat and the three men in the right lower corner between the yellow sun and its reflection in the water.
Best regards, Paul
