The Indian Riverboat : This shot was taken on the same day as was the previous TE upload.This is a typical Indian Riverboat or Nauka used for joyrides in the Hooghly River.Mostly used by lovers for a few quiet moments together. A long wooden pole is used by the ferryman to move the boat in the heavily silted waters of the Ganges.The sea is only about 100 km from Calcutta.The Ganges meets the sea ( Bay of Bengal ) near the Sagar Island.

una splendida foto, sia per il soggetto che rappresenta molto bene la vita della città, che per la composizione molto ben realizzata.
Belli anche i colori, buona la nitidezza , ma soprattutto apprezzabile la semplicità della scena rappresentata.

Hi,interesting colorful and exotic daily life scene.Friendly regards,Wolf.

This so simple, yet so pretty. I think it is the scarcity of colors that makes this photo so attractive. Just earth tones an cyan. The POV is effective, too.

Lep pogled na camac i putnike.
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast, lepe boje.
Dobar rad, lepo pokazan camac i trenutak sa senkom.
Imajte lep dan, sve najbolje.
Nice view of the boat and its passengers.
A good time recording, contrast, beautiful colors.
Good work, nice boat and the moment was shown with a shadow.
Have a great day, all the best.

I like the view down to the riverboat with nice colors and details. Also the light is excellent. Well done indeed. I'm already looking forward to board backwater boat in Kerala in October. Place I like very much. Greetings, Miro.

Nice to see that you improve yourself in a short time.
Once again you use very good the spaces, one little
note: try to use the space before the subject
(especially when subject is moving), than you
emphasize that moment extra and you make also the
picture extra exciting.

A closer view on this interesting little boat. I like the angle of view and the lighting; also the juxtaposition between the protagonists. The image has good colours and sharpness.
Didi (60588) 2013-07-10 3:08
Very good lights ambiance, nice scene
Interesting diagonal position of the boat
holmertz (54961) 2013-07-10 3:52
Nice tones of brown and light blue in the water, where the simple boat in maching colours is moving nicely on a diagonal. The wooden pole makes another, opposing diagonal. The atmosphere is good.
rbassin (23407) 2013-07-10 4:05
une scène parfaitement cadrée, le dessin de couleur sur la barque est superbe.
Sergiom (82815) 2013-07-10 5:50
Cette barque forme une très belle diagonale dans l'image. Le point de vue est excellent ainsi que le cadrage très soigné qui laisse de l'espace devant.
ikeharel (73549) 2013-07-10 7:32
Well spotted from a higher POV, Farhat.
Brown color of the river water is well collected under bright daylight.
People on the boat gave livelihood action on picture.
Blue color of it's cover contrast and shining.
mohammad_H (10034) 2013-07-10 9:06
Very comprehensive notes on a wooden boat, canoe, love, and light wind like a boat, and the sea for recreation, hunting, fishing hooks, I am using, displaying awesome
Kielia (24077) 2013-07-10 9:15
each time I see boats, my heart jumps a little bit higher and this impression is a very moody one. The photographer’s perspective is excellent. The color of the water makes the image very attractive. My compliments!
adramad (46944) 2013-07-10 10:34
A splendid picture that conveys all the charm and ambiance of the river with these traditional vessels, superbly captured every detail with the three men in animated conversation.
Well maintained brightness, and a remarkable clarity to admire the magnificent work.
Well done. I love it.
Have a nice day.

a beautiful river boat picture, great color and perfect light!Nice to see a traditional riverboat of the Ganges.
all the best
my last picture it was a sunrise not a sunset but I forgive you..

The National Geographic Society publishes once a month an informative magazine and amongst other subjects, they show once in a while such exotic views of local traditions; so I consider this picture, showing only "the essential of" this way of traveling, is worthy to be published in a coming issue, given its high-quality depiction.

Beautiful presentation of this type of boat
They are large and interesting to go in places without engine
Clear shot with fine colors
jcpix (13930) 2013-07-10 15:07
Thank you for the wishes regarding my 1 year mark with TE. :)
Lovely isolation shot, and the placement of the boat within this framework is ideal! A wonderful minimalist way to convey the every day works along the river. I always enjoy the scenes which portray the local type of perspectives, and this is certainly one that accomplishes that aspect. The blue design on the boat is a nice burst of color contrast against the muddy colored waters and feels to be just the right touch in compliment to the rest of the image. Nicely realized and presented. Have a great day ahead.
All the best,
danos (99816) 2013-07-10 22:45
nice the view as the presentation of the Indian river boat as is placed perfect in the scene.I like this typical scenery as passing by in front of your lens with the light and the colour management to make the scene very effective.
kato (11630) 2013-07-11 1:49
This is a tasteful photograph, so it's interesting and impressive to see the riverboat with the traditional shape, the ferryman using long wooden pole and rowing the Ganjes and customers in boat. it's effective for two color layers of the calm Ganjes which arose by light. And, the shadow of boat/pole projected to the river draw out a good atmosphere in this image.
daddo (27010) 2013-07-11 2:59
Salam Farhat. Captivating image where the warm colours are contrasted by that wonderful, vivid blue. magical light fills the whole image. Nice details of boat and people. regards. Klaudio.
ourania (47784) 2013-07-11 3:04
this is an elegantly composed and framed picture, that gives us a good description of the boat and the work of the ferryman. I like the river with its motion, particular colour and reflections as sole backdrop. We get the feeling of the gliding movement of the boat, the contrasting colours are attractive and the shadows enrich this lovely simple composition in an agreeable way. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
eldancer1 (36343) 2013-07-11 7:45
I used to hate paddling a boat against the current, it takes forever to arrive at our destination. Great timing and capture of this riverboat. I like the angle of the lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.

quelle vue de cette barque superbe avec l'homme qui fait avancer le bateau avec son bois sueprbe avec la touche de bleu dans le brun.
Bravo et amitié
josepmarin (58359) 2013-07-12 11:10
a nice composition, with a good minimalist conception. I like this traditional riverboat, its vivid colors and its contrast with the muddy water.
The game of light and shades is great.
A beautiful shot.
krzychu30 (15512) 2013-07-12 13:52
I´m sorry I was quite busy last week in my job,so couldn´t be up to date with your gallery.
This one attracted my attention immediately.Nicely composed and zoomed without "classical" horizon line(which makes the scene even more captivating) and with so lovely boat(the blue color creates here really eye-catching color contrast).
Have a nice weekend
Cricri (121227) 2013-07-12 23:25
J'aime la prise un peu en hauteur, la scène, les couleurs de l'ensemble baignant sous une très belle lumière, très belle image
Urs (14082) 2013-07-13 16:52
A traditional Indian river boat, set in the right BG of a rather muddy river. High sharpness and pleasing light blue colour that really stands out.
Good photo job
mjw364 (1400) 2013-07-16 2:24
Nice capture of the unique vessel with good areas of light and shade - well done!
kordinator (20855) 2013-07-19 16:19
Interesting local scene with very good balance between lights and shadows.
adores (45877) 2013-08-01 15:22
This is one of the cities I want to visit! A very good pov - you captured the little boat very well and that blue colour really stands out.
aloyho (6798) 2013-08-11 6:09
It is always tricky when composing a single object, as it can float around within the picture frame. Here you have nicely used the shadows to hold the boats and attached it to the sides of the frame and stabalizing the structure of this composition. A nice shot with overall good control of the lighting.
maloutim (9639) 2013-08-28 15:27
I like the atmosphere conveyed by the river boat which seems to be lost in the wide waters of The Ganges.
Lovely contrast between the deeper colour of the boat and the more subdued of the boat.
The atmosphere seems to be relaxed, perfect for meditation or courtship.
Thanks for sharing.
