The Coin Collector- in Gopalpur sea beach...
I posted here another one interesting moment in this beach previously... The local boys collect coins, (which may lost from the pocket of tourist during bath, or... they dedicate those to the Ocean with some wish...) which returns with the sea shore at the time of high tide...
Liked this frame with the man beside the seashore, who is on his job... He is watchful for a coin before the wash out of it with the next wave...
Here is it. Hope you'll like it.

I like this kind of photos.
As the painted brush.
Image quality is excellent.

Spectacular scene, captured with the wave just cresting on the beach, and creating a spray just above the wave, the glow of the sky, and sunburst effect — these are just some of the elements that makes this a genuinely beautiful photo.

A very atmospheric composition with this coin collector nicely placed in the frame and captured under a captivating light. The movement in the incoming waves is very well evoked with excellent detail.

I certainly do like it. The subject works well, but for me it's the lighting and the dramatic sky which make the photograph. The diagonal of the waves also create a sense of dynamism, and frame the man very well. Good timing! My only slight concern is the washed out highlight in the sky: I'm not encouraging over-use of post production manipulation, but the sky could be made yet more dramatic, and the lightlight brought down a bit with a bit of judicious tweaking!
A fine image, nevertheless.

This very beautiful image, perfect for the inclusion of man, good dynamics, great colors and excellent scene.

I remember your previous photo about the coin collector, very dynamic with the boy running on the beach.
In this new capture, the boy remains static in front of a few very aesthetic waves, which also add a good dynamism to the scene.
I like the weak luminosity of the cloudy day, and the sheen of the sky, creating a nice contrast.
A good work.

Lovely image with the person standing as if waiting for the waves to bring the coins. The colors of the sky are gorgeous, the atosphere is very peaceful and the image is very crisp.

Ciao dear Subhendu,
what a great image you have captured! A very suggestive picture, almost mystical, with an amazing light. The composition is perfect and pleasant, characterized by the presence of the boy and the beautiful wave that gives motion to the scene. Really an excellent shot, congratulations!
Ciao, have a nice Thursday!

This one is nice. Serene and quite. The sea and only loneliness of the man.
Nice composition and framing.

This one lacks the dynamism of the first shot, but is good in its own right. The diagonal works well & the silhouette of the man is well placed in the scene. The sky is beautiful as well. The man appears lonely against the elements

A fine seaside scenery, with the strong surf rolling in from distant coasts..!
The composition has an appealing simplicity, with the man alone surrounded by the three elements...
An interesting story about the coin collector, as I would not guess that's what he is up to!
