Hooghly by the Evening : It is always refreshing to visit the riverfront of the Hooghly in the evening to get some fresh air and some really nice snacks including Paw Bhaaji.Across the river you can see the twon of Howrah.You can see some colorful boats parked near the banks and ready to take take visitors on joyride in the river.

Salam Farhat.So this is the famous Hooghly River. I just saw Rick Stein's India series where he sampled some of the local food along the river.Not sure which town.Pleasant composition with lovely light. Regards. Klaudio.

Ganga looks so clean! Wonderful colors of dusk and clarity. A very well composed, peaceful picture from Outram Ghat.
Thanks for sharing,

These kind of shots never get old even if we see it a hundred times. I love the soft yet warm evening lights on the Ganges and on the horizon. I like the composition as well with these colorful boats making a good FG. Well taken.

That looks a beautiful place to go for a joyride, and the boats themsevels are wonderful. I love the soft evening light in this making the scene very appealing indeed.

An attractive and beautifully lit scene with an appealing evening atmosphere. I like the light and understated tones. There is much to see and hold the interest with the little boat almost at the midpoint making a very good focal point.

The distance between the two shores is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the boats. The evening light is giving nice colors to the sky. Have a nice day.

J'aime beaucoup ces barques colorées sur la droite qui semblent nous ouvrent une perspective très intéressante sur l'autre rive du fleuve. L'ensemble est profond et net.

This is like a combination of rural and urban India. Traces of the big city are seen across the river, whereas the colourful traditional boats waiting at the shore could have been anywhere in the countryside. The colours and light of sunset are very beautiful.

Une bonne composition, le premier plan jouit d'une belle lumière et apporte des couleurs intéresantes qui dynamisent cette image.
rychem (16438) 2013-12-06 8:39
Excellent composition, nice sunset mood, beautiful view of boats and of the city on the opposite bank of the river,

Must be relaxing and nice to go for a ride along the rives at this hour
Nice soft colors and composition with the branch at the right

una eccellente Calcutta inserita con tutte le sue contraddizioni in una composizione di largo respiro, tra luici particolarmente belle e colori ancor più suggestivi.
Un piccolo angolo dell'India che continua ad attirare turisti alla ricerca di sensazioni forti e diverse.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

If this was taken in the middle of the day it wouldn't be as dramatic, I like the lighting and it has good details. Well done, tfs.
kato (11102) 2013-12-06 22:48
You're capturing well this place by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the wide/calm Ganges and some tasteful boats anchored to the river bank. And, it's also impressive in languid atmosphere in evening.

Lep pogled uvece na mesto sa camcima ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, perspektiva i kontrast, lepe boje.
Dobar rad, lepo pokazano mesto i trenutak.
Imajte lep dan, sve najbolje za vikend, srecno.
Nice view at night in a place with a boat ...
A good moment shot, perspective and contrast, beautiful colors.
Good work, nice place and moment shown.
Have a nice day, all the best for the weekend, good luck.

River scenery collected superbly, Farhat.
Boats anchored and the vesseled sailed gave extra dynamic scale to the whole.
You mentioned those boat along the bank are for tourists - and look a bit strange to me, as no seats seem on them.
Anyway, nice taken on early evening, light and clarity were super.
Have a nice weekend,

A superb view of this great river, which has the typical charm of these boats in the foreground and a stunning view to the city on the other side.
A colorful perfect very natural.
A bright image with optimum clarity.
Well done. I Like
Have a good start to the week.
jemaflor (77476) 2013-12-10 23:04
Well balanced your view with this nice FG with boats, nice light and tones, well too with the complement with the landscape in the BG.
mcmtanyel (8209) 2013-12-11 22:32
I love the colors of the canvas on the boats. With those sheltersm the boats look like giant slippers.

bah! Darun. A nice composition in blue hour. Great composition. Like the subtle colour tone. Very pleasant to see. A nice one. Tfs.
mirosu (10942) 2013-12-17 4:55
Somehow I missed this nice photo. Excellent composition with the boats in foreground. Superb deep DOF allows to see nicely the sea with the small boat, ships and buildings in BG. Well done.
ourania (22744) 2013-12-17 11:42
I like very much this composition and the way you juxtaposed the two banks, giving a large part of the frame to the wide river. There are enough details and mystery in both banks to keep the viewer engaged in studying this view. There's fine perspective, great depth, lovely light that invigorates the moody colours. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
josepmarin (57267) 2013-12-20 3:41
this composition is very attractive, and offers us a deep and beautiful view of both shores of the river.
I like the colourful boats in foreground, a real eye-catcher, and the soft light of the evening, which creates a nice and calm atmosphere.
A great work.
jacquest (17773) 2013-12-20 4:47
This is a nice view on the river with the boats ready to give a ride. The distance on the water gives deepness and the end of the day light adds a peaceful mood.
