Originally, there was a place called Beerkul, where Digha lies today. This name was referred in Warren Hastings's letters as Brighton of the East.
An English businessman John Frank Smith started living here in 1923 and his writings provided a good exposure to this place. He convinced West Bengal Chief Minister Bidhan Chandra Roy to develop this place to be a beach resort

Your composition is great including the rocks and tidal pool in the foreground. The people on the beach provide a nice focal point for the shot. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has excellent sharpness. The repeating watermark is a bit of a distraction in what is an otherwise fine photo.

J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage vertical. Le point de vue est excellent , bien centré entre les rochers, une belle eau limpide ŕ nos pieds et un beau point focal coloré au loin.

love this! A creative POV and an image of different layers that all seem to fit together so irresistibly. Execution is flawless and the presentation inspiring. Well done!

What an unusual and brilliant idea for a photo. I would never expect to see this combination of the clear rippled water and the people standing there in this composition, and it works so perfectly well> The large soft round rocks break the water and create excellent foreground interest. You have broken the scene into thirds in the most novel way I have ever seen. I would imagine holiday companies would pay handsomely for this image.
thanks as always

This is a another super shot of Digha beach. I love the layers and the way natural elements are contrasted by the narrow strip of sand and sea are peppered with figures. Creatively seen, well done!
