Chitrakot Waterfall in Bastar is the biggest waterfall in India, yet this place remains completely unknown.
This waterfall (30 m high) during dry season is very serene place, but in monsoom changes into wild, 300 meter wide falls that can compete with famous Niagara

I really like this picture with this impressive waterfall, and your choise not to put the summit of the water fall on your picture.
Good thing to have the boat in the foreground.

Grandiose, bravo ce cadrage

very nice photo. I like the little space left to the men, showing ow high the waterfall can be. the light is almost magic here, giving a nice bue green color to the water near the men who are in the dark. nice capture of the mist at the bottom of the waterfall.

Very nice picture. I like the contrast between the power of the water and the very small boat. Beautifull composition and nice light.

Amazing waterfall! Is this picture from the dry season? Beautiful light ans silhouette of the oarsman.
Thanks for share.

Good upwards framing to get the size of the waterfall towards these man in the boat.

Wow, Sengir, a little jewel, this photo...Congrats!

Podoba mi się, jak światło rozświetla fragment spadającej wody - szczególnie ten w centrum. To prawie niewidoczne, ale bardzo urozmaica kadr. No i oczywiście scena świetna, w której widać ogrom wodospadu.

Very nice picture, the waterfalls are impressive !
Very beautiful light, too. I like the boat and the men.
Thank's for sharing

Yet another glorious picture of India. I like the way you have framed the image with so much of the waterfall... and the fact that the sunlight catches the spray infront.
amitbiz (15) 2005-04-04 8:29
Wonderful images close to my heart.
When I was in college...me and my friends always go to this place... its only 20 km from my JAGDALPUR college.
coucie (216) 2005-04-04 8:41
good composition bravo!!
arnabchat (7233) 2005-04-04 8:44
i like the way you have put things on the frame. superb!
i have missed out Chitrakoot falls, twice been to Arku but never been to Jagdalpur. i'd love to visit this sometime.
do you have other POV's too?

excellent photo, very nice colour of the water.
mrbialy (2568) 2005-04-04 10:08
I like this photo. Great capture, and wonderful colors. Excelent light. Very good composition. Bravo.....
Praetzer (1662) 2005-04-04 11:06
Impressive; very good framing and excellent light.
ndb1958 (9289) 2005-04-04 11:16
Wow. This is great. The scene is extraordenary. Great colour and light.

efimoore (2126) 2005-04-04 19:26
Good catch. The low horizon with the 2 guys in the boat makes the impression of a mighty fall. Simple and effective composition. And nice lighting.
paido (944) 2005-04-04 20:21
Even if namaste_oti wanted to see the top of the waterfall, I believe that it shows more an impression of "hugeness" the way it is.
The mens in the boat are doing a great job to scale the picture. The pirogue also add a more traditional element.
DAM (153) 2005-04-04 22:05
It is great to have captured these two men in their boat. Very relaxed posed for the guy on the right...
Yes the falls look spectacular...can never get this close to the ones in Niagara in such small boat. Great photo
gringofil (0) 2005-04-04 23:45
Want an amazing shot. The position of the boat is just amazing as the white spray from the waterfall illuminates the two men perfectly. Lovely colors as well. Nothing to nit pick here...excellent work!
AnimeshRay (9089) 2005-04-05 10:54
Excellent frame! Very good placement of the boat against the falls. Good light and colo.
I would appreciate a few lines on how to go there.
apache (1426) 2005-04-10 14:42
Beautiful snap...Know what? I get to know about a lot of beautiful places in India from snaps like yours..!
Did you know that Lord Rama stayed (supposedly)at chitrakoot for some days during his 14 years of exile?
gren4 (603) 2005-04-21 4:19
Awesome photo here and the boat ideally placed with the backdrop of where the light hits the spray.
sarju (5324) 2005-04-24 23:29
awesome photo antoni
its going to my favs
thanks for sharing
keribar (43841) 2005-05-03 9:33
Here is another beauty seems as if we'll have a hard time to eliminate pictures - if any ) when looking at them..
amol (952) 2005-07-20 9:32
Thanks a lot for posting this... its sadly true that this awesome fall remains almost unknown in India... but now they have started camping facilities here on the banks of the river... and in this pic u can already see Indian "Maid of the Mist"... overall a great composition... though I would have preferred the maid in the middle...
idalio (75) 2005-07-30 12:44
This is a huge photo like the waterfall. I love it. Great job.
LeToun (0) 2005-09-06 16:47
Le cadrage couplé à la longue focale montre à merveille la puissance de la chute et la fragilité de la barque. C'est magnifique !
Mansi (543) 2005-11-25 22:44
i have no words for your stunning pic!
love everything about it...technically and otherwise... beautiful!
davicin (166) 2006-03-06 12:20
Esta es una de esas imagenes que te hacen sentir envidia por no estar alli, una fotografia perfecta para un paisaje impresionante.
Mistral (15402) 2006-03-06 12:36
Good composition of this impresive waterfall (didn't knew about)!
Jeppe (18654) 2006-03-06 13:05
A truly wonderful catch you present here - I like the use of this impressive waterfall as background for the boat - well done - thanks
mfonda (891) 2006-03-14 17:12
Very amazing photograph! The boat in the foreground gives us a great perspective of how big the waterfall actually is. Excellent POV.
smash2707 (3320) 2006-03-26 21:18
This waterfall looks impressive. Excellent composition with the boat in the front and the silhouette it forms. Regards, Yvonne
Polonaise (5802) 2006-04-18 21:11
Stunning and absolutely beautiful photo.
Not many times I'm lucky enough to see the cascading water shown as a cascading water and not just a smudgy, white thing.
ramesh_lalwani (3211) 2006-05-12 21:01
It really beautiful place.You have nicely got two boatmen with waterfall in background.I thought chitrakoot was on border of UP amd MP,Bastar is border of MP and AP.TFS
clarita (654) 2006-05-12 21:28
breathtakingly beautiful...i especially love the height and image of the waterfall...the silhouette of the boat/men is the icing on the cake!
job well done.
sorry i can't give out any props for this...i ran out for the day.
binita (464) 2006-07-27 0:52
breathtaking picture indeed. placement of the boat has increased the charm of the picture manyfold.
anjan (1086) 2006-07-27 0:56
Hey Antoni, If this hadnt been displayed on featerus by TE I udnt hav discovrd this pic. The boats perfectly placed for the falls. I have been there so I know it isnt easy 2 get this angle.

partha (14020) 2006-10-22 13:06
Simple yet strong composition.Into my favs.
Bogdan011 (162) 2007-01-09 19:17
Wonderful photo! Well done
sothy81 (9568) 2007-04-08 20:17
This is just an amazing photo. Quite dramatic with the giant background. The size between the BG and the subject makes this shot compelling--a true scaling shot. Ver sharp. Wonderful work.
dvlazar (6644) 2007-04-08 20:20
A highly impressive photo. That must be a loud position to be sitting in for the boatmen! Composition is simply spot on - nice image.
diverjohn (544) 2007-04-08 20:51
Good composition, getting the people into the scene for perspective in front of the crashing waters.
A text-book image in my opinion.
Thanks for Sharing.
enedimd (1532) 2007-04-13 13:36
I like so much. Excellent shot. It's very impressive.
Color and light so good.
Have a nice day.
PS: Sorry, maybe I'm late for critics. I just see your photo today.
sreeharig (211) 2008-01-14 9:43
nice capture and the silhouttes are adding good effects too, i am not sure about the stats you have given here though, did you confirm this with some place.
thawaitrajkumar (0) 2012-06-29 2:31
Like it. Giving nice view.
