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.
I have taken this shot at Bharatpur Beach, Neil Island...

a lovely image from the seaside with superb sharpness and excellent depth. The texture and clarity of the water has been captured marvellously and the role of light in this picture of exaggerated contrasts is fascinating. What I like the most is the wonderful gradation of colours along the vertical frame, it's very delightful to follow. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Hello Madhumita - I would love to visit the Nicobar Islands and this shot tempts me to book a passage asap. The sky and sea look so inviting, gorgeous colours and clear water. The little boat is waiting to take passengers out for a spin. A lovely shot. Warm regards rosemary

Un bateau tourner vers la mer qui invite a la balade vers cette mer d'un bleu azur, j'aime ce ciel bleu et blanc aux détails et lumière intéressante, belle réalisation

The boat seems to regain his freedom despite the moorings. The picture is nice. The light, colors and sharpness are very good. Bravo.
Have a nice day

A beautiful simplistic shot. A blue sky with beautiful, a sandy beach, the sea and a boat are enough to bring about an excellent photo. Well-done. TFS and have a nice day!
abmdsudi (55658) 2012-12-19 1:12
Nice to be back! The kind of shot that makes me want to go for holidays straightaway as this picture looks so tempting; the deep blue sky, crystal clear turquoise water, the sandy beach and the wonderful sky further adds the mood! Do you feel the eyecatching boat is a tad too central, I think so Madhu. Hornestly that's the only negative comment I have, other are just flawless. It's a splendid photo works and credit to your skill and technique. Well done, Congrats :))
raszid62 (18515) 2012-12-19 8:36
Beautiful, romantic postcard from paradise islands. The oceans water is so crystal. Small boat on the beach, and most importantly - we do not see here, a busy tourist traps. Great sky. The picture is amazing.
गुड आफ़्टरनून. सुंदर, स्वर्ग द्वीपों से रोमांटिक पोस्टकार्ड. पानी इतना क्रिस्टल सागर है. समुद्र तट पर छोटी सी नाव, और सबसे महत्वपूर्ण बात - आप यहाँ देख नहीं है, एक व्यस्त पर्यटक जाल. महान आसमान. चित्र अद्भुत है. तुम्हारा.

nice the view of the moored lonely boat in this empty beach with the blue of the sky to enhance the lonelyness of it.I like the light and the colour management as the tranquility of the place.
bayno (18344) 2012-12-21 1:48
wonderful scene, i love the light and the colors well satured, perfect vertical framing and nice sharp...is a pleasure to look...

Ciao Madhumita, lovely composition with boat in FG, fascinating sea view, superb sky, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done, Merry Christmas, my friend, ciao Silvio

Namaskar dear Madhumita
What a pity that such a beautiful place can be named after such a nasty man. Your photo is very beautiful, excellent vertical frame, good righ colour and great composition, although I would normally position the boat slightly off-centre, to the left or to the right of the frame. Excellent photo and thank you for your interesting note.
adramad (46986) 2012-12-29 7:54
Wonderful this vertical composition, which we can see from the crystal clear waters on the sand, the different shades of color in the sea, while a magnificent sky, all complete a fabulous job, very beautiful.
My compliments. Well done.
Have a nice weekend.

Very attractive capture, a true picturesque scene. Nice atmosphere, well taken!

I would also tie me up on "the best seat" to admire longer this "play" of Nature performed with pastel colors and dramatic skies in high-resolution depiction!
Robert1969 (7160) 2012-12-30 2:28
A picture that's taken from a very good point of
view and has also a very good composition: this
with the vertical position creates a nice depth,
the diagonal line of the rope and the layers in
the picture emphasize that extra. The light
management is also good.
Friendly regards and have a good 2013,
mkamionka (38393) 2012-12-30 12:32
what a lovely view. The boat adds a very important element to the composition. The colors are wonderful and everything works very peaceful and quiet here.
Have a happy New Year!
SWEETFREEDOM (24621) 2013-04-30 8:05
amazing colors and p.o.v. i like the vertical format choice and landscape.
marabu61 (11119) 2013-05-04 7:15
This is a truly gorgeous composition indeed. Lovely deep saturated colors in the sea and the sky and the lonely boat strategically placed. Very pleasing to look at indeed.
have a good weekend
Urs (14082) 2013-05-14 7:56
I doubt that this could be Noah's Ark, there would not be enough space for all the couples. Nonetheless the highly vibrant colour tones of the sea vs. the sky are breathtaking. Excellent framing, well done
ChrisJ (116108) 2013-05-15 8:48
Lol. Here in eastern Turkey I am not too far at all from the Ararat Mountains where the real ark allegedly came to rest. Hoping to get over there before I leave Erzurum. The same gorgeous turquoise and azure colours of Phuket and Ko Phi Phi in southern Thailand. Good sharpness and a nice minimalist composition. Tfs!
josepmarin (58359) 2013-07-05 7:24
you created a nice minimalist composition with the boat, the rope, and the beauty of the beach and of the clouds in the sky.
I love the great light and the gorgeous colors of your excellent shot.

What a lovely image of seaside with sharpness, clarity and the light. Congratulations and TFS.
Have a great day.
