Riverboat in Sunderbans : This shot was taken while on a cruise to the Sunderbans,the largest single block of tidal halophytic mangrove forest in the world, located in the southern part of West Bengal.It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site covering parts of Bangladesh and India.The Sundarbans National Park is also situated here,which is one of the largest reserves for the Royal Bengal Tiger.This particular boat was carrying a group of people enjoying their picnic aboard the riverboat, which is a routine affair in the Sunderbans in the last week of the year.

Very nice capture of this river boat but I would be more interested in the wildlife on this river. The river looks very wide and fast moving. Good pov and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

typically a colorful photo from india! the shape of the boat is quite authentic for my eyes and i like your tight framing which focuses on the boat. the sky looks rather dull. i wouldn't expect to see monsoon in december, so i guess it would be a normal rain. seeing bengal tigers in their original habitat is a life time dream for me. hopefull one day...

Great photo, Farhat.
The movement on water, and the colors made this boat so attractive, with people on board pic. looks vibrant as well.
Fine small decoration mounted on it's roof, and the colors mingle well to the river surrounding's.

Excellent view of this boat in Sunderbans, the biggest mangrove forest of the world. It is located also in Bangla territory and as you say, it's the place of the world you can find the highest number of tigers

This is a charming photo, probably one of your nicest. The boat looks great and has a lot of fine details, we see some human activities on board and maybe there is a tiger hiding somewhere in the jungle. Sharpness and colours are excellent.

Best way to see tigers I guess from a long way away having a picnic on a boat! Very colourful and nice tight frame. I love the grey in the sky contrasting with the colour.

A good capture of this riverboat full of tourists. Presented with good sharpness and saturated colours.
jhm (152264) 2013-06-27 4:33
You chose a very well angle so we see these boat in 3D. .
Sharpness and colours are attractive.
Excellent composition, perfect captured.
Very well done, TFS.
Urs (14082) 2013-06-27 4:48
Interesting we have the same river boats over here in South East Asia. Hopefully the one in the picture is safe and not overloaded. Every year we have some accidents due to overloading in South East Asia. Vivid colour hues and high sharpness. Well done

Satellite photos show the Sunderbans shrinking each year and this is a viable and ecologically sustainable way for locals to make a living, rather than cutting it down bit by bit and eventually be left with nothing and no buffer zone against cyclones. Really good and encouraging to see. The tigers will be happy too!
kato (11630) 2013-06-27 6:53
You're capturing well this scene by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the lovely riverboat with colorful frame and simple design. It's impressive in the mangrove forest with rich greenery of opposite shore, too. And, the reflection projected to the river draws out a good effect.
Oceania (5202) 2013-06-27 6:53
It's a great way to see the scenery along the river. People on the boat seemed enjoying their ride.

a great presentation of the boat cruising the river. I like very much the perspective and how its appeal is enhanced by your well considered framing. The scenery that acts as backdrop has very pleasing colours that set off the boat too. There's excellent depth and sharpness and many details for the viewer to study. The colours of the boat and the reflections are very attractive and its interesting to watch the people and their response to the lovely ambiance. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

Have a nice day
tomi1 (2218) 2013-06-27 17:09
It is interesting the configuration of this boat being so wide at down. But seen laterally seems a thin one. So at down there is so spacy. Perhaps enough for people dance. But upstairs there are chairs and one table. How long lasts this cruise in the river? What's the name of the river? Certainly the cruise must be very pleasant according to people inside. The quality of sharpness is excellent. Warm regards. Tomi

This is a well-composed, nicely managed photo of a pretty little boat. I don't know what it is about this photo, but it just puts a warm smile on my face. Well done!
pierrefonds (65898) 2013-06-28 4:35
Ther distance between the boat and the shore is giving depth to the scene. The point of vie wis howing the details of the colorful boat. The good luminosity is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.
josepmarin (58357) 2013-06-28 12:10
a good capture of this riverboat in an efficient close-up.
It's a nice image of the daily life, very dynamic and full of vitality.
Light is great, and I like the quality of the colors.
You have done a beautiful composition.

Namaste dear Farhat
What a beautiful little boat, it's got wonderful colours and looks so characteristic. The reflections and light on the water are really attractive and set the scene perfectly. nice work, thanks for sharing.
macjake (67534) 2013-07-01 3:50
question for you...so would these people here be locals or tourists?
and do tourists ever us it? My guess is that its mainly used by the people living here.
the boat has a strange but enjoyable look to it, with the strongly sharp curved bow, like a dagger.
I really enjoy your cultural shots from India, we learn so much from them.
nikkitta (17066) 2013-07-01 14:42
Beautiful capture plenty of color of this boat, taken at the right moment when it was moving fast ( India flag waving)
People seems to be very interesting watching the vegetation
Well seen, congrats
