This is photo of a shop in Dal Lake taken on the sunny morning. Srinagar is also known as the city of Dal Lake. This lake is 6.4km long and 4km wide and is divided into three parts by man-made causeways. The western portion of the lake has an inlet. It is the deepest part of the lake. In the eastern part there are many Houseboats available for the tourists. The edges of the lake are covered with the groves of chinar, poplar and willow. There are gardens along the bank. The famous Nishat Bagh (Garden of Gladness) lies here. This garden was laid out by Asaf Khan, Nur Jahan's brother, in 1632.

This is a great shot, the reflection is almost perfect. Its a place that I've always wanted to visit, and it looks great in your photo.
With regards to your composition, I think it would have worked better in portrait format. As the shop and the reflection is the focal point of the image, you could have excluded the rest of the scene. It would have made for a stronger and less cluttered composition.

Thanks and greetings from Portugal,

Hello Chanjit. This is an unusual upload, and a well composed photo. The water is like glass. The light is wonderful, and you have chosen an excellent viewpoint. However, I notice the quality of the image could be better. Your file is only 67k, when it could be 200k. Therefore the compression has affected the quality. It also needs to be sharpened a little so the front of the shop and the man are clearer.

now this is what i like, no pp but good sharp image. well done buddy. one of ur best.

I like the reflection here in the still water, however the wires in the background is little bit distracting but light colors are fine. It's a good documentary shot.

C'est superbe ce reflet dans de l'eau si calme;
Le reflet est aussi net que la réalité et les couleurs sont bien éclairées par le soleil.
Intéressant cet ensemble de maisons.

What can I say more!...
goodwill (4881) 2006-06-29 14:55
This is a beauty.
Wow, I like the calmness in the water which resulterd in such a beautiful picture.
Patience has its rewards, wherein I lack till date.

Une réflexion très spectaculaire dans ces eaux parfaitement immobiles. Un petit coup de photoshop aurait permis de réduire la luminosité et d'augmenter un peu le contraste...

I agree with Anjan. This is certainly one of your best. Excellent reflections in the still water of Dal. Well seen and well captured.
sayan (2617) 2006-06-30 7:27
Beautiful capture. Good title too! I really love the reflection on the water. one of your very best captures!

Dal lake is a contract of calm water in troubled Kashmir.It offers wonder oppurtunity to photographers to capture reflection.
You have got perfect reflection.TFS

Dragonheart (8414) 2006-07-02 10:42
Excellent reflection in the water and bright colours.The contrast and sharpness is perfect.
hoorge (1434) 2006-07-11 22:42
This is unbelievable. The water is so still that it feels like glass. Very sharp and clear picture.
rahul__rahul__ (2250) 2006-07-17 9:50
nice picture, I like the reflection in this a lot. It is also technically good.
P.S. I am thinking of going to Kashmir next summer possibly, seeing that you went there this last month, did you feel safe and how was the condition there?
nivas37 (662) 2006-08-01 12:26
you deserve a big pat on your back for this excellent reflection photo... it has been framed well, and the light/contrasts have been done perfect.

marvellous. good composition.
branley (3681) 2007-01-11 8:37
I like the subject matter and the reflections are fantastic. For me it's a little too central, maybe a move to the right would sort that and I think it needs to be a little sharper, but then I'm not one to talk about having sharp images! Overall it's a lovely everyday shot. Well seen and I wish you health & happiness for this coming year.
