Living By The Sea : This is another image captured on the first of January this year at Digha.Two labourers are walking by the seaside on the ramp carrying stones to bolster the seaside embankment.Digha is a pleasant seaside tourist spot about 170 km from Calcutta.Ideal place for a weekend.Lots of fresh fishes here for those who love fish gourmets.

Salam Farhat. When I look at the stones already forming the embankment and the number of stones the men carry, I wonder how many hours and how many humans it took to construct the barrier. And then i wonder how little they earned at the end of the day, tired and hungry. Of course the image is nicely constructed. All the best. Klaudio.

Dobar tekst o mestu i trenutku ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast i ostrina, lepo pokazno mesto i radnici, lepe boje.
Radnici rade tezak posao na suncu.
Imajte lep i uspesan dan, sve najbolje.
A good article on the place and time ...
Good time recording, contrast and sharpness, nice demonstration place and workers, beautiful colors.
Workers doing hard work in the sun.
Have a nice and successful day, all the best.

Very nice shot showing these men working so hard. How often also women do such a job, carrying heavy loads on the heads. Nice composition in natural colours.

Beautiful work scene well captured. I like it!
Have a nice day!

What is immediately noticeable is your fine sense of composition; the figures are strongly positioned, walking into the space at an angle, so we look up to them, set very clearly against the clear, blue sky.
It is a most interesting subject. In this era of mechanisation, to see men carrying heavy loads on their heads is surely a photograph to value, for it may not happen for much longer.
Have a lovely day,

A very nicely composed, well balanced photo with attractive colours. By "well balanced" I mean not just that the men balance their heavy loads nicely on their heads, but also how you have placed them off-centre, walking along the diagonal created by the narrow path. They don't look happy, but whether they don't like your camera or they don't like their work I can't tell.

First of January and working, in the west is the first January an official day off.
Your picture is very well taken with these two workers in full action.
Excellent scene, made in high quality.
Also nice perspective and depth picture
Excellent composition, very well captured.
Very well done, TFS.
Romano46 (18472) 2014-02-12 5:39
semplice, essenziale e dalla composizione molto buona.
Una testimonianza della fatica dell'uomo nello svolgimento di faticosi lavori manuali.
Mon manca il colore e la composizione è molto ben fatta con la diagonale della banchina che fa da linea guida.-
Ciao e buona giornata

J'aime beaucoup la ligne de fuite offerte par le choix de l'angle de prise de vue.J'aime la belle diagonale dans l'image ainsi que la superbe gestion de la lumière en bord de mer.
serp2000 (41356) 2014-02-12 6:32
I did not visit your gallery few weeks and I see a lot of interesting photos again. Excellent one! Simple but curious daily life scene.
ikeharel (60363) 2014-02-12 7:18
Excelnt taken moment on photo, Farhat.
Good clarity and their pose on the egde of the stone-railing is interersting to comprehend why, yet you had not written that.
Fine working-people image.
rbassin (19179) 2014-02-12 10:20
une belle scène de vie, bien cadrée.
Couleurs et présence des personnages rend très agréable cette photo.
UlfE (14641) 2014-02-12 10:33
Very nice and really well-composed Daily Life scene. The men are well-postitioned and that the are walking on the wall diagonally across the image adds Dynamics to the scene. The scene is also very clean with the mean seen against the sky. TFS and have nice day!

You have captured the poverty well. With improvement in the garments being manufactured, nowadays, the facial expressions are a better indicator of economic fortunes (or misfortunes).
chrislo (4155) 2014-02-13 1:17
A good human interest shot and also a very efficient crop that puts the focus on these men working hard and carrying heavy loads. I can't imagine the income they get for doing this job but man's life can indeed be tough. Good contrast of their colorful cloth with the blue sky and sea. Well done.
mirosu (15102) 2014-02-13 3:10
Excellent snapshot, both labourers are in superb light. Your lower viewpoint is perfect. You have arranged in excellent way, the BG with clean blue sky is very nice. Well done.
Nicou (126290) 2014-02-13 8:14
Un très dur labeur de porter ces pierres sur la tête très bel hommage à ces homme quelle scène splendide vue.
Bravo et belle soirée
kato (11630) 2014-02-13 8:51
You're capturing well this scene by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the spectacle in which labourers are carrying stones into basket at seaside embankment. And, it's good at color contrast.
Silvio1953 (126846) 2014-02-13 13:27
Ciao Farhat, lovely daily life composition, nice scene, excellent clarity, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

great capture of daily life scene and fantastic execution, excellent sharpness, fine details, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done. Best regards, Barbara

Great colors, lovely composition. They remind me of simitçis of Istanbul. (A simit is like a round pretzel covered with sesame, a simitçi is someone who sells them.)
danos (88883) 2014-02-14 1:30
nice the snapshot from the daily life of the two natives as walk on the wall carring stones on their heads.Their placement in the frame is good with the light and colour management to are captured and presented superb.
delpeoples (54125) 2014-02-14 4:03
Namaskar dear Farhat
A beautiful daily life photo. The men carrying their goods, against the backdrop of the powdery blue sea and sky, is beautifully composed and the colours well contrasted and saturated. I like the diagonal lines, the vivid colours and the good definition.
subhendu_bagchi (25935) 2014-02-14 4:15
hi, a nice daily life scene here. Very well composed. Good use of diagonal. Excellent light and nice clarity. A nice one. Tfs.
rychem (25866) 2014-02-14 9:17
WhT I like is the classic diagonal composition, these men are very well placed, nice scene with hardly working people
batalay (36133) 2014-02-15 7:28
I like very much your composition, with the two laborers placed perfectly int he frame. With the expansive Indian Ocean serving as the backdrop, this makes a compelling photograph.
Have a good Sunday,

Very nice documentary image of how people live in other parts of the world, I used to live this kind of life in the Philippines. Good pov and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.
adramad (39452) 2014-02-18 7:48
Fantastic portrait of these two workers, who in a very traditional way, carrying stones in that basket on his head, his figures stand great on those blue sea and sky.
Very good brightness and sharpness, with beautiful colors.
Well seen and done better. I love it.
Have a good day.
berek (41101) 2014-02-20 1:44

have a nice day
Waylim (25368) 2014-02-26 11:11
Very beautiful photo of daily life in this area. Such a difficult life these people have, carrying rock on their head. Love the composition, good colors, very natural.
pierrefonds (58738) 2014-02-26 18:12
The distance between the shore and the horizon is giving depth to the composition. You have captured well the action of the men carrying stones in their basket. The light has a good effect on the colours. Have a nice day.
Cricri (109661) 2014-02-27 9:46
Vraiment une image bien réaliser, composer, cadrer, netteté, couleurs et lumière au top, tout est excellent, une très jolie scène et portraits
ourania (34433) 2014-02-28 9:57
a very fine composition, you've used the perspective, the movement and the contrasting backdrop in an excellent way. The firmness of the short perspective and the sense of movement have been combined exquisitely, you made the two gentlemen look very elegant in this frame. I love the limited colour palette, the contrast between warm and cold tones, the sense of depth and the play of light and shadow. The eye contact is a great plus in my opinion, too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,
