I took it in Dal lake, Shrinagar. You can see the flower sellers in colourful boats sells flowers to the owner of houseboat. The wooden cottages in water are called houseboat. Those are well decorated, made by wood and have all advantages like hotels.
It is scanned from a photo. So it has some problem in quality. I just liked that frame that time and now sharing it with you. Hope you'll like it.

Interesting picture of the water commerce, with colorful boats giving beauty to the image. I think the quality is rather good considering it has been scanned. The composition is beautiful! Well done!

A typical scene I have seen many times in Indian movies.
Despite the scanned image it offeres lovely colours and
details. The glassy surface of the water is a good detail
with its shades and colours. Good saturated colours with a

beautiful colors and optimal point suddenly, perhaps small grain in the sky. Salutes

Very nice shot of the houseboats on the Dal lake. The reflection just extend the houseboat a bit. Good to have the boat with the fresh flowers in the center, it gives an idea of the dimensions. Vibrant colors and high sharpness too, well done.
Thanks for your critique of my Thaipusam shot and your explanation. I think you are right, after reading the name of Thakur Ramkrishna I remembered to have heart that some visitor of the booth mentioned this name. At least I now can put a name to the painting.

a well scan quality photo with the flower sellers to try to sell their merchandises to the anchored houseboats.Really these constructions looks big ones and looks more as a hotels than a simple house.A good reportage shot.

Thank you for sharing this image.. BBC have been recently showing some programmes of India.. It seems such a diverse country, but always colourful. Your image is excellent and an excellent note to go with it.. I like how you have cropped it to include the reflection. Rich

thanks for sharing this interesting scene - I do not care about the quality of this scan, it is the image that counts. And this one tells a whole story! You have chosen a very well working POV and the colors are also very attractive. My compliments!

very good catch. This place is so exotic to me. Everything is surprising. Are these houses a boats too?
Very nice colors, may be some parts are a bit overexposed and loose a bit detail but the reflection is so nice that the overall effect is very attractive,

For me, to built a wooden house on the land is already not easy, suprise to see a large boat house, good lighting and exposure shooting in a sunny day with obtain clear reflection, thanks for sharing a scanned photo.
