I took it at Mandarmoni. It is a nice sea beach of West Bengal and remains less crowded. To reach this beach you have to leave train at Contai ( Howrah - Digha line ) and hire a car and have to drive through beach to your hotels or resorts.
It was around 9 a.m. After a heavy rain the weather is calm and heavy. The fishermen were returning home after performing their daily routine. Some curious people were searching the deck of boat. Though there are some problem with light due to back light condition, the whole frame is fantastic. Hope you'll like.

Great daily life image. A way of life in this part of the world, all the fisherman, working hard together as they return from the sea. Good composition and nice details. Thanks

Interesting backlights on this fishermen scene, very hard job.
I like very much the rough ocean.

very nice daily life scene. There is a nice context on it...I mean there will be some food and money at home :) Very graphical and a good play with the light. Well done!

A light not obvious to manage, but here it is a success I find. I like this light back-light on this scene of fishing. I do not know if fishing were good but the net is impressive !!! Work which seems difficult. Thank you Subhendu.
With all my friendships and with soon,

Ciao dear friend,
you have captured a gesture repeated every day, but always interesting and pleasant, an important gesture for these fishermen. Beautiful image, with a perfect sharpness and soft tonalities of color. Compliments!
Ciao, have a nice day!

Hopefully these fishermen can swim. Most of the fishermen in Orissa cannot swim, but will go oit to the sea to catch fish. These boats look very similar to Orissa. Good composition showing them returning after being out in the sea catching fishes. Well done. Thanks for your critique of my paddy field before harvesting. Global warming is a huge problem, but so far nobody has a real solution

Bonjour, cher Subhendu,
Excellente image de ces pêcheurs ramenant leur lourde barque sur la plage.
L'ambiance générale est parfaitement reproduite !
Un grand bravo pour cette réussite.

A good daily life shot of these fishermen returning with their catch. I like the soft light and colours and the harmony of movement.

This is a good and interesting subject and a well framed composition. The people and the long boat are quite effective in creating a dynamic scene.

This is a scene that many associate with India - the fishermen leaving or returning from a hard days work at sea!
A fine documentary with good details, depicting the situation well and showing the hard work under the burning sun...

Hello Subhendu! Good scene. Very good POV and composition. Perfect exposure. Well done!

Good scene of the fishermen returning from their catch. Strong light even at 9 am, I would like to believe that such shots should be taken earlier in the day. Horizon is well placed in the frame.

Hard work and hope that it will be catch, restless sea, a good moment shows good color and beautiful photography.
Going to sea and do not know if will come back and catch fish, hard work and time, bravo.
Nice day, Paja.
