I took it in Mandarmoni. It is one of the lovelyest beaches of West Bengal. To reach Mandarmoni you have to leave the train at Kontai and hire a car. Road is not so good but at the end you'll find a nice beach. For the last few distance to your hotel you have to drive through beach.
After a torrensial rain I found this little girl just running and enjoying the beach. May be she was collecting sea shells. You can see a doll also in her right hand. I like this view that time very much. Hope you'll also like it.

a girl running on the beach in the middle of the image. The stormy and dramatic sea, gray tones, a nice dynamic posture, a nice red shirt an amazing reflect on the beach. Very well done!

A pleasing and atmospheric image of this colourfully dressed girl running along the beach and apparently oblivious to her surroundings. The relatively slow exposure creates a good sense of dynamism around her feet. Her reflection in the watery sand is a nice bonus.

Nice girl. Very nice beach. Beautiful scene. Good reflection.

What I like here is the natural lighting. It makes me believe I'm there watching that lovely girl in her play. The reflection on the water is a nice bonus to the composition. Nicely done!

I see people swimming in the rough ocean.
I suggest you to frame the horizon a little bit more high.
Greetings for a Merry Christmas

nice snapshot with the running girl on the wet sand with her feet in a blur motion.I like her reflection on the sand as the pink colour tints of the sky.Well done.
happy holiday wishes to you and yours,Danos

movimenti giocosi della bambina sulla spiaggia con riflesso sulla riva.
Un augurio di sereno Natale a te e famiglia

Nice one here with the reflection of the girl in the wet sand adding to the picture. Her red dress is quite an eye catcher. A faster shutter speed would have avoided the motion blur on her right leg. But well captured!

One of the things I like best about beach photos is the reflections you get on the wet sand. The thirds composition works well and the girl's red top is very eye-catching. You framed the image well so the girl still had plenty of space in front of her.
Happy New Year

A composition of subtle treats, the pink clouds in the sky, the reflection in the wet send, the blur of flying feet while the head is clear and sharp, How did you do that?? Very nice!!
Wishing you and your family health, love and joy in the coming year, Pat

The thirds composition works well and the girl's red top is very eye-catching.
A girl running on the beach in the middle of the image, this gives more dynamic image.
A nice tuesday,

Excellent idea to capture the silhouette of the running girl even it already was a bit late and she is not 100% sharp. Movement can be seen, there is nothing wrong with it. The pastel color hues are nice. Well done

- Yes I like the idea Subhendu and looking visibly happy this little girl running, pretty picture, bravo!
Have a good day.

The idea is good. Only I'd have cropped a bit in the bottom to have more focus on the girl. I'd have tried to improve the sky... light conditions were not the best! (:-)
But one must always try, it's the only way to learn!
Have a nice day,
