I clicked this more than six years back, from the 7th floor balcony of the hotel where I was put up. It was mid afternoon, a few days before Christmas, with the sun not in the best mood to humor beach-goers.
However, the beach was moderately full, indicating the popularity. Even today, Puri beach continues to be the dream destination for many middle class people of India.

I like the atmosphere and the strong oblique lines. The composition is nicely divided between land and sea. Good colours despite the hazy sky. Excellent clarity.

I like POV and composition.
People talk about the size of this place.
Have a nice evening

The distinct diagonals, the hazy horizon and the mild pastel colours make this a very attractive photo. It's also interesting to watch the holiday-makers from this distance. I stayed close to the beach in Puri for a couple of days in 1987, but i don't actually remember it as being as wide as this. I can't say it was a dream destination for me, but i enjoyed the town even though I could only get sneak views of the temples from rooftops.

gOOD TO SEE THE BEACH BEING UTILISED AND FROM A DISTANCE AT LEAST, IT LOOKS CLEAN AND WELL CARED FOR. eXCELLENT color sharpness and a superb high pov. The people add scale and animate the scene. The diagonal shoreline adds dynamism and perspective. Tfs!

a nice one from Puri beach here. It seems so quite and calm by appearance in this picture, which I can't relate with my experiences. Overall a nice presentation using a nice angle. The part of road at left with the border line made a nice contrast with the beech. Very good composition using a high POV. Tfs.

I don't think many people would be on the beach bathing at Christmas in England! This a very revealing shot!
I like the diagonals which create excellent lead lines across the frame. There are plenty of details to give a good impression of the activities and the participants on this hazy, winter's day.
Have a great w/e,

una foto che č anche un documento di come si svolge la vita in questa cittā che si affaccia sull'oceano.
Colpisce in particolare la grandezza della spiaggia e il piccolo chiosco in stile tipicamente indiano.
Buona la composizione grazie ad un POV elevato che ti aiuta a disegnare due belle diagonali che racchiudono nettamente la spiaggia.
Buona anche la nitidezza che consente di osservare il tipo di abbigliamenti dei frequantatori della spiaggia.
Ciao e buona serata

Beautiful shot of the Puri beach from your high POV. I like the nice diagonal created by the beach. Beautiful natural colours and light. Thanks for sharing.
