nice the placement of the boat in the frame with the foggy atmosphere to makes the image even more effective.I like the excellent light and colour management as the charmy of the scene.

I remember your previous post too, but this one is better, imho. Just that bit more classical, perhaps, but it suits the subject and atmosphere.

This is similar to your last photo but better balanced. The atmosphere is the same: the colourful boat steering into this slightly mysterious area of mangroves, mosquitoes and tigers on a dull and hazy day. It would be interesting to see the Sunderbans but so far I haven't made it there.

Bien cadrer le bateau colorées avec les reflets dans un paysage brumeux du petit matin qui donne une atmosphère mystérieuse aux paysage

Namast Dwaipayan. It is admirable that the Indian gov. had set aside this area in an effort to save the tiger. Indira Gandhi was a keen supporter of such policies. Unfortunately tigers need vast stretches of land for their individual home range ( consequently only a limited number can be accommodated in any reserve) and there is a fear that inbreeding may cause problems in the future.The photo depicts a serene moment and place. Very nice composition. Regards. Klaudio.

What a beautiful picture!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, horizontal format, chosen pov and composition are all excellent! I love the contrast between the colorful details of that boat and the greyish natural details!
TFS - congrats,

Love the capture in hazy greyish day and the still water as this does also add a certain atmosphere and mood to the shot. The dreamy diffuse background provides a nice frame rendering good depth and sense of distance. Indeed hard to ignore the foreground colourful boat, it guides the eye in the whole scene.
It's a well composed, balanced and sharp focused image. Excellent clarity and stunning contrast too which really suits the environment. Well done my friend

A beautiful image, the contrast of the colors of the boat against the silent, still and colorless backdrop is very unique and appealing. The surface of the water is like glass, and the composition gives a brilliant sense of motion and depth to the boat. Nicely done!
All the best

Hi Dwaipayan - I love the atmosphere of this cleverly composed shot. There is such an incredible feel of stillness here. Remarkable. Warm regards Rosemary

I love your composition style here. It has a nice, artistic balance due to the tight crop.
Great colours and clarity of the boat and its reflection in contrast to the misty grey river ahead.

I like the effect of the mist on the mood. Good composition using the side of the boat to provide perspective. Well done, tfs.

I like the structure of this composition, with an asymmetrical framing and the boat at left side, in order to give a good space to the water and the landscape in background under a foggy atmosphere.
All this provides a beautiful effect at the photo.
Kielia (23847) 2014-12-04 6:12
you have a great misty effect with this picture. It gives the impression of a haunted fairytale land. The boat is an important part of the composition. And the photographer’s perspective is excellent.
My compliments also for the whole gallery!
