Neil Island is an island in the Andaman Islands of India.
It is apparently named after James George Smith Neill, a British soldier responsible for several war crimes during the suppression of the 1857 Mutiny. It occupies an area of 18.9 square kilometres (7.3 sq mi). The island is located 40 kilometres (25 mi) north-east of Port Blair, the capital of Andaman and Nicobar Islands. It is the southernmost island of Ritchie's Archipelago, save for uninhabited Sir Hugh Rose Island, which is another 3.8 km to the southeast of Neil Island. Administratively, the island is in the Neil Kendra panchayat, Port Blair sub-district of the South Andaman district, in the Union Territory of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, India.

josepmarin (58359) 2012-10-22 12:18
the purple hues in this image of the sunset give a great character at the view of this seascape, which you have caught in a perfect framing, including the beach, the silver sea, the silhouettes of the coast and the clouds, in a superb composition.
A beautiful work.
Didi (60588) 2012-10-23 11:36
Very nice seascape
I suggest you to get closer of the shore with a low position to give a deeper foreground.

danos (99148) 2012-10-25 3:16
nice the view as the colour of the scene that makes so attractive and unique.The pinkish atmosphere with the part of the land and the sea creates depth and perspective in the image.

A nice view.
Interesting colors and light.
Good frame and clarity.
Photo has climate.
jacquest (18927) 2012-10-25 14:40
The tones of the almost unique color of this image make it an eye catcher. The distance creates deepness and sends the eye under this beautiful cloudy sky in the far horizon. Quite inspiring and very well done.
nilotpal_patra (1688) 2012-10-26 6:29
It is realy, realy a Wonderful Picture of Nature. Nice Frame. Nice colour, contrast and sharpness. Excellent shot. Nice POV. TFS.
adramad (46458) 2012-10-26 10:44
Delicious composition, with a range of truly spectacular colors, I like the POV chosen this diagonal cut that gives the beach with the water line, water flows also repeat that trace diagonal, beautiful sky with clouds abundant.
Have a nice weekend.
jemaflor (98743) 2012-10-27 0:38
Peaceful landscape with this beach. Interesting result with reflections and overall with these tones, tfs.
delpeoples (58572) 2012-10-27 20:23
Namaskar dear Madhumita
I love these purple/pink tones. The way you composed this, so that the diagonal lines of the shore come out of the left foreground corner is very clever and effective. The silvery reflections on the shore are magical. A stunning photo, congratulations.
mauro61 (52857) 2012-10-28 11:34
particolare la colorazione dell'immagine in una buona ripresa di questo tratto di spiaggia.
Cielo che regala riflessi sulla battigia.
un caro saluto
bartekp (4746) 2012-10-28 11:45
Very good composition. I like especially colors and reflection between sea and clouds.
Have a nice evening
Nard (6972) 2012-10-29 6:04
I like this cloudy sky and the dark atmosphere that gives. Desert place, no one on the beach, water looking like ice, a nice picture.
lpi (4857) 2012-10-29 7:07
Un joli paysage avec des jolies tons violets.
Très bon point de vue et belle composition!
holmertz (54223) 2012-10-29 13:33
Those were the days, when a war criminal had an island named after him. I don't think he deserved that.
This is anyway a lovely photo with remarkable colours. You have captured the evening atmosphere of a tropical island very well with good sharpness and clarity.
I spent a few days at Havelock Island more than 11 years ago. Returning to Port Blair the boat stopped just briefly at Neil island. I didn't get a chance to go ashore but it looked very inviting from a distance.
Hansaphotos (8219) 2012-10-31 11:08
A nice capture from this beach. The shallow water reveals small stones to make the scene more interesting and it also provides nice reflections. Nice evening mood with interesting hues. Very nice work:) TFS. Have a nice evening.
Best regards, Erling
mesutilgim (95486) 2012-10-31 12:24

tedesse (25135) 2012-10-31 12:44
Beautiful tone color.
ourania (47018) 2012-11-01 11:15
this is a marvellous picture in a long panoramic frame that enhances the already superb sense of depth and perspective created by your composition. Lighting is masterful. I love the magnificent evening colours that are reflected on the silvery sea. The mysterious distand land is a great addition that offers intriguing contrast. The motion in the sky animates the image and the sense of isolation is captivating. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely month,
besnard (56569) 2012-11-02 0:09
Des couleurs mauves extraordinaires pour ce coucher de soleil. Un moment rare que tu as bien fait d'immortaliser.
Bravo et bonne journée.
abmdsudi (55082) 2012-11-02 1:30
The weather looks pretty bleak here but the heavy dramatic sky overhead is interesting and the scene conveys the sense of calmness. Good clarity and coloring with minimal foreground subjects with nice touch of diagonal line. Excellent clarity, sharpness and contrast. Great ideas and lovely image all round. Congrats
Angshu (56758) 2012-11-07 0:52
The diagonal compostion works well. I feel you could reduce the reddish tinge in the image...but I liked the reflection of the clouds & sky on the water. Nice work!
maloutim (9639) 2012-11-14 20:41
Incredible sunset colours, with this unusual, rosy-purple.
Very good composition, with the shore-line in diagonal and the importance taken by the sky rich in beautiful cloud formations.
batalay (39123) 2012-11-17 9:47
Two years ago I saw the Andaman Sea from Phuket, Thailand, and was in awe of the beauty. It's good now to see the Andaman Sea from the East Coast of India. You've presented a scene of tranquility and genuine beauty.
UlfE (14641) 2012-11-22 11:15
It is the first time I visit your gallery and I realize that you have many excellent photos in your gallery. This is perhaps not your most beautiful photo but still a brilliant photo. The composition could not be better with the horizon line at 1/3 and diagonal shore line. The colours are also very attractive and a bit unusual. TFS and have a nice day!
Silvio1953 (145485) 2012-12-19 8:53
