Yamuna, one of the great venerated rivers of India and this was the view looking at part of the riverfront by the northeast outside the walls of Taj Mahal. The canoe, just the daily way of things and was part of the setting and meaning, a mode of transport for river crossing by villagers living on the north bank linking them to Agra old quarter.
Observing from some distance offered endless fascination, clearly that river life was very relaxing, calm and tranquil. With this shot I wanted to show the gorgeous late afternoon Yamuna golden light, while trying my utmost to present an image in the best possible way worthwhile that I'll never forget
The water quality can be really disgusting - no offence meant, but the view is truly amazing .....

Interesantan tekst o reci sa opisom, lep pogled i trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazana reka i camac.
Dobar rad, lepo uhvacen trenutak, lep refleks na vodi, lepe boje.
Prijatno vece i mirna noc, sve najbolje.
An interesting article on the river with a description, a nice view and a moment ...
Good time recording and contrast nicely demonstrated rivers and boat.
Good work, nice captured moment, a nice reflection on the water, beautiful colors.
Good evening and peaceful night, all the best.

Light glow on the red stones edifices with fabulous reflection over the calm water, most attractive sight, Abmdsudi, and you did well spotting this and nicely collected.
Good contrast with green, and the lone boat added scale on the fantastic photo.
Well done my friend,

You have chosen a very suitable title for this relaxed and slightly moody photo. I can just vagely figure out the dirt on the distant shore, but I don't see it clearly and I don't feel the smell, so I can just enjoy the quiet atmosphere of late afternoon and marvel at the reflections of the old buildings in the calm water.

Beautiful composition with the canoe and the reflections in the tranquil water. The mood captured nicely in the soft, late afternoon light.
The level of pollution is the water is alarming and is 'supposed to be' a national concern. I am sure Shah Jahan would have selected a different location for the Taj Mahal if he had had the gift of seeing the future.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice weekend.

Belle exploitation photographique de ces reflets aux couleurs chaudes.
everlasting (14367) 2014-08-22 1:31
Beautiful copper tones you have here, I might have liked to seen a little more of the building but I understand how you have composed this and I can at least see the reflections in the river, it's not that polluted :)
adramad (35855) 2014-08-22 9:11
A good short explanation for the image, this is extremely beautiful with fantastic reflections as these, in which highlights a range of warm colors, the brownstone buildings along the banks of the river, the boat is a touch definite charm in this beautiful set.
Very nice range of colors.
Superb management of both the brightness and sharpness.
Well seen and done better. I like it
Have a good weekend.

Indeed! The composition projects calm and tranquility supported by the colors and the lighting. My bucket list includes more travel especially to Asia but for now you photos are enough to get my wondering mind satisfied. Well done, tfs.

a very interesting title for this mesmerizing picture that looks timeless. I like very much how you expanded and balanced your composition with the reflections, there's a fine tonal harmony in the setting and the boat matches the surrounding colours superbly. It's amazing how the reflections disguise the quality of the water, the metallic texture of the surface is lovely. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

This is a nice view and the earthy tones of the reflection in the after is magical. Lovely idea to compose the little boat perfectly on nines like this, even with this little piece of activity there is an overwhelming sense of calm. A beautiful moment.

This is an absolute stunning scene from the Yamuna river. The colors are gorgeous, the setting tranquille and the reflection of the temple great. The little boat adds a perfect eye catcher to the scene.
This looks so completely different from the Yamuna river I remember.
have a great sunday

Life goes on, and the reflections still linger. A lovely, romantic shot in utter tranquility. I will make sure to forget about the comment you made about the water quality and remember just the beautiful reflections.
mkamionka (29532) 2014-09-12 7:33
photos have the advantage that one does not feel if it is hot or freezing or stinky :)
A very romantic composition, seems so simple yet the reflections work very pleasantly and contrast well with the sharp boat crossing the waters.
Very well spotted, great atmosphere captured,
