I shoot this beautiful moment at the first week of March, 2010 at Talsari in Orissa. It is one of the less exploited beach in Orissa. This is the view of fishermen, went to deep sea at night for fishing and returned back at dawn in Talsari beach. Here they were searching their fish in the net an opposite direction of the sun.
I hope you enjoy it,
best of all

Interesantan tekst o plazi i ribarima, lep pogled i trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazani ribari sa mrezom i trenutak sa suncem.
Dobar rad i kompozicija, lepo uhvacen trenutak, lepe boje.
Nema vremena za odmor, ceka ih novi dan za ribolov.
Prijatno vece i mirna noc, sve najbolje za vikend, srecno.

Another beauty of a shot, this silhouette is magical, especially against this vivid orange sky. Even the sun has found itself in a beautiful position in the frame. Gorgeous color throughout, there is an excellent mood and sense of community in this.
Thanks as always

Excellent photo with all elements very well placed in the frame. Strong silhouettes have been caught in just the right moment. The backlit translucent net enhances the the image.

Apparently, no fish in the net! good low POV to enhance the human silhouettes, good light management

This is a really delightful composition with a wonderful mood to it. Perfectly exposed with beautiful warm light and tones. The people gathered round the nets and shown in silhouette are nicely distributed across the frame. Excellent photography.

Belle scène sur la plage au levé du soleil, j'aime la couleur dorée et les personnes en silhouettes regardant cet instant magique

Wonderful group portrait showing people as silhouettes against the orange glow of the rising sun. Transparent nature of that big net looks really good on backlight.

Splendid fishing scene at sunset with nice golden tones and beautiful silhouettes. I like it!
Miguel82 (26242) 2014-09-03 19:00
Perfect presentation Swapan, these fishermen are separating their nets by early morning, only one lady helps them
macjake (59956) 2014-09-22 0:31
another beautiful silhouette type of photo.
you have a few of these fishing photos in your gallery, its easy to see why.
love how the people are spread out to both sides, and the colors, reflections, and mood are spot on.
ourania (35064) 2014-10-02 10:59
I like very much the layout of this scene from a close, upward point of view, the solid, graphic silhouettes that are well distributed within the frame, the sense of space around them and the suggestive shadow in the foreground. The warm, glowing backdrop and the position of the sun are superb. I also like the reflections and the ethereal texture of the nets. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

This is a very beautiful contre jour photograph.
The limited palette of oranges and black add to the impact of the shot, which is very well composed.
It reminds me of shadow puppets.
They were always a big hit at school as shown here.
Have a lovely w/e,
npecanhuk (69140) 2014-10-08 17:10

Beutiful light management. I like the dark silhouettes and colors.
worldcitizen (7435) 2014-10-19 11:06
I really like these silhouettes against the golden light of the rising sun. The texture of the nets, and the reflections on the wet sand, are also lovely. There is a wonderful atmosphere in this photo.
