Waves in Bay of Bengal splashing against the rocky shores of Digha at sunrise. Digha is a seaside town around 150 kms away from Calcutta. It is the prime weekend refuge for tired and weary Calcuttans. It was fancifully named by Warren Hastings the then Governor General of India as the 'Brighton of the East'.
As for the title I am sure you can correlate :-)
Thanks for looking.

A nice and colourful one. Good minimalism with nature. Great to see the golden light on the sea shore. Love how you froze those water splashes. Excellent idea to show it like this. Enjoy the against the light capture. Now, I can feel the power of it and now it is gradually affecting my brain :)
Thanks for sharing this beautiful one.

This is a very appealing image perfectly exposed to capture the water splashes in such detail. The golden ocean makes the ideal background. Thanks for sharing.

Ha! Ha! Subho, like a sea of lager splashing vibrantly
against the sides of glass! A beer festival on the shores of the Bay of Bengal!
You have done well with a very difficult shot!
The light, the movement the threat of water, all creating difficulties. Did you use a tripod?
The shot is well composed with a strong f/g triangle, whilst the explosions of the waves are frozen in time forever.
Have a great day,

Very creative idea and excellent realisation. This illumination makes this watersplash looks like an sunfower oil.
Good title for so simple and amazing photo.

We see almost more a artwork than a picture.
Wonderful colours and nice splashing waves.
You chose a very well angle this cares for depth and perspective.
A nice composition, good presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

now this is clever. So cool and totally original. It becomes a unique and stunning piece of abstract art, and I wish I had thought of it. Amazing imagery - I applaud your imagination and execution here.
williewhistler (16398) 2014-02-25 7:03
your choice of the fast shutter speed has frozen the water droplets in mid air againt a glowing yellow back ground.
Very clever photography.
holmertz (54293) 2014-02-25 7:43
This is a great and unexpected composition. You captured the splashing waves perfectly, freezing the water with the short exposure. The golden sunlight gives the photo a spectacular tone.

Golden photo of a frozen movement of water, beautiful droplets glttering in the sun light, very well spotted and caught

Very impressive picture.

Cheers indeed :) it's a work night, so no beer for me, but I will return at the weekend and raise a glass of gold in return. A perfect capture of this moment, like time is frozen forever did these beautiful beads will never land. It's amazing how the splash has filled the whole scene making a wondful abstract result.
All the best

Quite a fascinating image, it took me a minute or two to really figure out exactly what I was seeing. It originally appeared to me as molten lava flowing my direction, and until I read your note explaining the splash, it didn't come into focus. :) Amazingly rich gradiation of golden tones which makes the visual even more compelling. A wonderful idea to isolate this moment, creating a virtual abstract. Clever realization and smart concept. Very well done! Enjoy the day ahead.

I like the effect of the light on the water. You have captured well the splash of water against the rocky shore. The sunrise is giving nice colours to the sea. Have a nice day.
Apurba20 (984) 2014-02-25 20:52
This photo brings out the fact very clearly that it is not the place which is important, but the moment.
And of course, that fact that you were able to spot this.
mcmtanyel (23995) 2014-02-25 21:13
A lovely copper tone at sunrise is accompanied by a festive water spray, frozen in time very skillfully. Congratulations & TFS!
macjake (69143) 2014-02-26 0:44
you know why I enjoy this photo?
for some reason it actually looks like the water is frozen, yet we know its a warm climate.
it just appears that way.
there's a unique look to the water that's really cool :)
mirosu (16273) 2014-02-26 1:32
Before reading your note I was longer time studying the photo, but I'd problem to identify the subject. Excellent capture of bouncing water in nice light. It is very close to nice photo artwork.
Very well done
Wish you a very nice rest of the week.

Namaskar dear Subho
What a wonderful and inventive shot. It reminds me of champagne popping and spilling. Beautiful golden tones and the way you composed it is almost abstract. Superb work.
Thanks for sharing, have a lovely day
williamcoombs1 (363) 2014-02-26 7:37
Glorious photo of a glorious scene! I can well understand why Kolkata residents make their way to this place.
Your use of the colours, DOF and shutter speed is masterful. What a result!

I like the effect of the wave splashing against tha shore.
Simple picture but good composition, and the golden backgound is particularly interesting.The shot has a good sharpness and brightness.
Congratulations from France.

Quelle scène et couleur dorée magnifique, tout comme une peinture abstraite, lumineuse et attirante a souhait

to the sea shore
dekanski (5578) 2014-03-02 9:42
beautiful, all the praises! Almost like it was painted!
ourania (47120) 2014-03-07 12:14
a creative and appealing idea to place in the foreground a firm stone ledge in a subtle perspective, fill the rest of the frame with the calm sea in a rare and mesmerizing colour, capture the splash of the breaking wave very sharply and offer your viewer a fascinating random pattern to study. I like very much the sense of dynamism as well as the play with transparency, light and shadow. I also enjoy the contrast of the stunningly calm foreground. I'm not sure this would work but I'd try cropping a little tighter at the top so that the effect of the dynamic patterns gets even stronger. You managed light, colours and textures in a superb way. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,
