I took this shot at Midnapore..
I was roaming near a canal.. I found that this boy was laying on this green field.. May be he was laying there after a hard work .. Don’t know you like it or not..
Midnapore (Pron:ˌmedɪnɪˈpʊə) is the district headquarters of Paschim Medinipur district of the Indian state of West Bengal. It is situated on the banks of the Kangsabati River (variously known as Kasai and Cossye). This area had taken a pioneering role in India's freedom struggle. A large number of freedom fighters who had bravely faced the gallows are the sons of the soil of Midnapore. In order to free their motherland from the yokes of bondage, they had willingly sacrificed themselves in the freedom pyre.
Midnapore is located at 22.25°N 87.65°E and is 23 metres above sea-level.
The climate follows a hot tropical monsoon weather pattern. Summers last from April to mid-June with diurnal highs ranging from the upper 30s°C to the mid 40s°C and lows in the low 30s°C. Daily heat is often followed by evening rains known as kalboishakhis or dust-storms (loo). Monsoon rains can last from mid-June to late August or even September with rains from the southeast monsoon contributing the lions-share of the annual rainfall of around 1500 mm. Winters last for 2 to 3 months and are mild; typical lows are from 8 °C - 14 °C. Allergies are common in winter and spring due to the high content of particulate dust in the air.
Soils near the Kangsabati River are alluvial with a high-degree of clay or sand, whereas soils towards Rangamati are lateritic. Vegetation incluces eucalyptus and sal forests on the northwest side of town. The sal forests form part of the Dalma Hills, Bengal-Jharkhand Range. Arabari, the forest range which was the site of India's first Joint Forest Management scheme, is only 30 km away. Elephant attacks on humans are common in this area, although the town itself has never been attacked. Hordes of marauding elephants attacking human habitation in villages in Midnapore district have come as close to the town as Gurguripal, 6 km away.

I think we all the know the feeling he is portraying, exhausted after a long day, and relieved to be relaxing by a river. Nice natural scenery and a great daily life shot too.
Have a great weekend!

You can see such sceneries along our yarkon river bank's, Indrasish, when someone takes a nice minute for nap in the open. Natural green is attractive here, good light and DOF on a diagonal view over.
Have a nice weekend,

I like the posture of the man... an X with the hands - a Y with the legs and body and of course the bright green T-shirt on green grass! The angle selected is fantastic with the diagonals by the banks. It looks as if the scene was ready for you to reach there, click and conquer. Great eye sir.

I liked it dear brother. Excellent composition. Like the mood of it. The little boy is tired and he is taking a nap beside the canal. A nice presentation though I think there is a bit extra green saturation in it, but your composition is worth seeing. Tfs.
