SUNRISE AT MANDARMANI.
In this shot you get to see a family strolling along the Mandarmani Beach at sunrise.The reflection of light from the rising sun gives the Bay of Bengal a golden hue.
Some tidbits about Mandarmani.

It is one of the large and fast developing seaside resort village of West Bengal. It is almost 180 km from Kolkata Airport on the Kolkata - Digha route.Red crabs crawling around the 13 km long beach is a special attraction of Mandarmani. It is argued to be the longest driveable beach in India.

This is an impressive sight. The colour of the sky and the sea is fabulous and you placed he people well. Their silhouettes are just as important to the composition as the golden sunrays.

A splendid sunrise picture with a high romantic content.
Wonderful strong contrast between the evenness of the sky and the strongly undulating sea.
Best regards, Paul

Very nice sunrise capture with hearthwarming effect.
The dominant "golden" color makes it topclass.
TFS and best regards

a great composition in a vertical frame gave effective ddepth to the scene and ensured that the golden reflection is as fascinating as it takes without hurting the eyes. The three silouettes are very well defined against this magnificent shine and seem to be shifting within the frame. I like very much this original and attractive monochrome. The texture of the sea is fantastic. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

Beautiful sunrise image, the ocean looks like liquid gold! The 2-tone presentation works really well here. Dark silhouettes of humans against the golden waves give this image a storyline, sense of action. I also like the type of framing that you chose for this particular photo - casting shadow on a white frame, in a way, echoing the shadows that the people in the photo are casting on the sand in the golden rays of sunrise.

You're capturing well this scene by excellent tone, so it's interesting and impressive to see the beach dyed to golden color at the time of sunrise and the strolling family with silhouette. And, it's impressive in ups and downs of a wave, too.

J'aime beaucoup cette composition. Les 3 hommes en ombres chinoises sur fond de mer et de coucher de soleil racontent une histoire.
De plus, j'aime beaucoup l'effet d'ombre que tu donne au cadre.
Romano46 (18472) 2013-04-17 10:08
di questa foto più che la composizione mi piacciono le luci che riflettono tutti i raggi del sole e che, grazie ad un oceano tutt'altro che calmo e all'aiuto del tele crea una sorta di motivo grafico che fa da sfondo alle figure.
Ciao e buona serata

Nice tall frame capture with silhouettes of walkers along the shoreline. The golden reflection on the ripples are stunning in the frame.
Thanks and kind regards.

Reflecting light made this seaside scene looking highly aesthetic and interesting. Excellent composition, contrasting silhouetes, lovely sunrize light and perfectly represented seaside atmosphere!

I'm always drawn towards silhouettes, so this one definitely caught my eye. :) Love the golden tones from the rising sun, there's quite a bit of ambiance with this photo and a sense of calm and simple pleasure. Nicely exposed to create this effect, certainly looks to be a wonderful walk along the beach and a great way to start any day. Very well done also to capture a family during their moments shared together, it feels to add a sentiment of unity to the entire image. Thanks for the view. Have a great weekend.
All the best,
mjw364 (1466) 2013-04-21 2:25
What a beautiful composed and exposed sunset shot - such warm rich colours - makes me want to be there!
Well defined silhouettes and good details in the shadow areas against that strong sunset light.
mirosu (16273) 2013-04-23 0:22
Excellent light reflections. Exposing for the bright water surface has nicely captured the colors of the sunlight reflections and made a good silhouette of the people. Well done. Greetings, Miro

Namaskar dear Farhat
Beautiful vertical frame and lovely golden light. I like the partial sillhouettes and how they contrast against the silvery and golden tones.
Excellent shot, very evocative
danos (101794) 2013-04-30 11:40
nice the 'golden' reflections during the sunrise as falling on the surface of the sea,making the image so inviting.The dark silhouettes of the boys make the image more effective.
annjackman (21901) 2013-05-02 16:00
The golden hues are wonderful as a BG for the silhouettes. A beautiful place. Well done and thanks for showing.
Kind Regrads, Ann

un oceano d'oro, sembra incredibile.
Mi piace il taglio verticale e la posizione delle persone, una foto ben composta e dagli accattivanti colori.

Great golden tone collected, Farhat, as the family stroll the beach early in the morning.
A fabulous texture achieved, fine pic. taken.

the sunsets in your hemisphere creates quite fascinating colors! This is a nicely composed impression with a wonderful atmosphere. The management of the light is outstanding. My compliments!

Photo-wise, the number three is always very satisfying visually according to composition tutorials and ....especially when seen over a sea of "melted gold"!

Ola Farhat ,
Beleza este momento em tons dourados nesta praia , gostei muito das silhuetas das pessoas , parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo

This is an incredible sunrise picture ! I was impressed at what early risers the Indians are, and then of course, they get the best part of the day mostly to themselves.
Lovely effect created by the dark silhouettes on the bright, golden background !
I suppose you used a zoom ? What kind of PP did you do to give that invredible texture to the sea ?
rigoletto (34279) 2013-05-29 11:40
This one is a moody beach photo, thanks to the strong back light and strong silhouettes in a deep orange tint. There are some grains in the sky, maybe due to cropping from a larger photo. You may use Neatimage to clean those grains.

A fabulous scene and a lovely composition. Nice silhouettes of the people strolling at the beach. Well managed light. Excellent work! TFS. Have a nice day.
