Good documentary shot, never been there but would love to already. Just gimme boats, docks, anything that goes into the sea plus people and i would shoot daaays long.
The haze goes nicely along but you should increase the contrast a bit, I think.
The problem here is not to cut through people, i'm bothered with how the bottom of the picture ends, you should have walked down the...pier (?).

Awesome sight ... I can almost smell it

I agree about the contrast, but still like it even as is... it brings back memories from places I dont even remember (oh, and parts of kashmir). the street at the top right corner feels like Ive been there.
a great atmospheric shot. I dont mind the people so much. they are kind of 'background information' for me.

Nice misty atmosphere and great documentary value. Like the comment: I can almost smell it! Regarding increased contrast I would add it just a bit in the foreground only (Paint on mask, Graduate linear fill, Curves).

Always interesting how people think these countries must have the same things we do in western world, including chioces of where to stand..... This is an excellent picture.
