I took it at Udoypur. It is at the border of W.B. and Orisa. From Digha ( a popular tourist destination of Bengal ) it is about 15 km away. A calm sea beach. The sea is Bay of Bengal.
It is the time of low tide. The seashore is at some distance. Some people were enjoying the bath, though they are not in the frame. Bike is available here for see the distant side of beach at rent, where a river meets the sea. The reflection of the bike and the sky in the watery sand attracted me at that time. Now I am sharing it with you. Hope you like it.

A very atmospheric composition that makes good use of the vertical format. Motorcycle and passengers are well placed and form an interesting silhouette. Good light and colours.

Greetings from Warszawa!

you did a great job with the few elements in this one. The hoziron line is well placed in the frame and there is a nice balance between the sky and the reflection on the wet sand. Graphically attractive and well presented!

Dear Subhendu Bagchi!
Very nice idea.

Very interesting composition. Very beautiful place. I like the reflections on wet sand.
Angshu (55375) 2009-10-06 6:15
Very nice image. Like the details of the clouds in the horizon and the reflection of the sun in the wet sand. Except the Overexposure on the sun, all others work well. In my opinion, you could have cropped upto just below the sun to have a fine impression as well! Pls. check the WS
Urs (14082) 2009-10-06 7:14
It's a fantastic shot despite the fact that you included the sun in your shot which was washed out completely. You could had softened the blow of the sun by using a PL or a gradual gray filter, but it is difficult. I fully understand why you composed the shot like this, there are these beautiful clouds at right. What so ever I like your photograph despite the shortcomings. Well done

- Beautiful beach Subhendu, incredible light and amazing mirror effect, like glaze, one wonders if these bikers do not slip on ice, anyway, bravo, it's successful!
peppe59 (14551) 2009-10-06 8:44
fantasticca image that you propose, winning colors scene from the Oscar, beautifulst the mirror in the water. It compliments
josepmarin (57711) 2009-10-06 11:09
a good cross-light and a nice predominance of the blue hues in this capture. The two persons riding on this motorcycle on the wet sand of the low tide, they offer us a magnificent scene, in which the sheens and the reflections play an excellent graphical role.
alvaraalto (6175) 2009-10-06 11:42
One almost endless plain of glittering reflection with clouds in the sky and in the water and lost in space the two people on a bike with their reflection shadows.
A marvellous moody and artistic picture.

emka (77306) 2009-10-06 15:08
it is interestung! It looks as the bike goes on water or ratehr the mirror. Really nice reflections in the wet sand.
clio (27955) 2009-10-06 23:44
I like this motorcycle and its shadow isolated on this universe between sky, ground and water. Colors are wonderful. By seeing the photo I thought at once that it was necessary to crop the height of the sky and I saw that you had had the same idea with the WS.
Great shot, congratulations
Amaz (11475) 2009-10-07 2:01
Extraordinary capture, Subhendu!!
Excellent perspective and amazing contrast!!
Very well taken!!
All the best,

I love to see reflections; any reflections, but particularly attractive are those on wet sand. I agree with Angshu about the crop of the over-exposure, but I would have cropped a bit less. There are many possibilities. even a crop top and bottom would work to take out both over-exposures and you would still have plenty of the attractive reflections. Another thing I would mention is the position of the bike. Either framing more to the left or pressing the shutter a couple of seconds earlier, would place the bike further to the right and give it more space in front of it. That would have the effect of keeping the viewers' attention within the frame instead of wandering out the left side as the bike is leaving the frame. I hope that makes sense. I do like the photo as it creates a lovely mood.
francio64 (38276) 2009-10-07 4:46
si, davvero spettacolare. La moto nell'acqua bassa, il suo riflesso e quello della luce del sole, mi avevano fatto credere che si trattasse di un mare ghiacciato su cui transitava la moto.
L'effetto visivo è davvero di grande impatto e inganna facilmente.
Longroute (19394) 2009-10-07 7:14
A very atmospheric composition Subhendu!
I like it a lot - as you know I'm a seascapes lover and this one is so charming! Fine light and colours and a wonderful sense of infinite space. Good to have those people in the bike to give the dimensions of this beach.

What an amazing image vith excellent reflection.TFS.
carper (96) 2009-10-07 7:24
very nice shot I like the effect here,
the light is not easy but you handled it very good, nice reflection very good photo job here, well done, have a nice day.
Philippe (11836) 2009-10-07 9:42
Hi, Subhendu. I like the reflections very much in your picture and the mirror-like aspect of the beach. the motorcycle is an interesting compositional element adding life and scale in the scene. It's a pity the upper right part is overexposed.
Have a nice day,
Fis2 (84528) 2009-10-07 12:05
A very curious photo.
I like the light and colors.
Nicou (120328) 2009-10-07 12:29
grandiose image, cette moto sur la plagne avec de tels reflet, dans l'immensité, avec ce ciel mouvant, fantastique, superbe image.
bravo et amitié
Cricri (105215) 2009-10-07 12:32
C'est un moment bien capturer ça donne l'impression que la moto roule sur la mer, superbe lumière et reflets, belle idée d'avoir couper le haut en WS
PixelTerror (0) 2009-10-07 13:40
An image that has good potential, was just taken bit too late as it would be better to have the couple on the motorbike more on the right for forward moving space and better contrast against the sand highlights, the reflection on the wet sand is very nice and is was worth an image, even though capturing such a scene is not easy at all with a small coolpix
have a nice day jy
paololg (31448) 2009-10-07 13:56
Cieo dear friend,

Ciao, have a nice time!
danos (85757) 2009-10-08 2:04
a very nice view of the beach with the low tide to has create a perfect glitter effect.The existence of the motorbike somewhere in the middle of the beach and with a huge sky over them, make the shot memorable.
TopGeo (38202) 2009-10-08 5:36
Very fine scene on the beach, wonderful motorbike beautiful the mirror in the water. with their reflection shadows.A marvellous moody and artistic picture.compliments

gervaso (10005) 2009-10-08 12:36
Wonderful reflections on the ground, and it's interesting how it looks like if he was riding on the water surface at first sight! Very good colors as well! Beautiful job!
AiresSantos (56155) 2009-10-08 23:51
Nice composition with beautiful colours and reflections
I like the motorbike in scene and its shadow
Lovely clouds in the sky
Have a nice evening
sevy (15359) 2009-10-09 6:05
Strong contrast, but what a view with this endless beach crossed by the motorcycle. The fact it is put in the frame in this way increases the feeling of space.
With such view, I understand you met success.
ymrk (14955) 2009-10-10 1:38
You have really cruised on photos...this is absolutely incredible Subhendu...Congratulations my friend!
cobra112 (15589) 2009-10-10 9:55
Ciao Subhendu. Amazing playing of light here and stunning "ice effect" on the water. Indeed a fasciuating and dephting compo. Best compliments.
darek1978 (13361) 2009-10-11 9:52
Very well composed picture. I like the reflection on the wet sand. Beautiful clouds in the sky. Also the light managment is just fantastic. Well done!
danyy (0) 2009-10-18 23:31
tu t'attaques là à une composition très difficile, la gestion d'un contre jour aussi violent est souvent source de surexposition, mais ici, elle est minime et occupe suelement une petite partie de la photo.
Une excellente profondeur et un clin d'oeil sympathqieu à la liberté de mouvement.
My best regards.
delpeoples (52999) 2009-11-02 3:02
Hi Subhendu, you play with light so well and this photo is such a great example. I like the subject, the vertical frame and the light on the wet sand. Great work, TFS, Lisa.
