Varnasi is closely associated with the holy river ganga, and a lot of daily activities take place on the ghats of the river.in this shot a boat laden with logs is seen in silhouette.these logs are carried to the various ghats,steps leading to the banks of River,where dead bodies are cremated on these logs.

Namaste Dwaipayan. I love this evocative shot with its glowing sky and water contrasted by the silhouettes of people and the boat. In a way the boat is a messenger of the fate one day awaiting the people on the banks of Ganga.Moddy photo. My compliments. Best wishes. Klaudio.

I have seen similar scene on TE already but in tighter framing. This one offers slightly wider view which includes also plenty of the scenery around. I like how the bridge in the distance frames the image at the top and how people washing clothes in the river have been placed in the composition. The colors of the sunset add very special atmosphere to the picture.
Well done and TFS!

per questa devo farti i miei complimenti.
La scena è molto bella ed è stata ripresa in maniera eccellente, sia come composizione che come tecnica.
Un dosaggio della luce perfetta permette di cogliere ogni più minuto dettaglio senza per questo eliminare il fascino di una luce solare debole che disegna silhouettes magiche sullo sfondo del fiume.
Ciao e buona giornata

Very beautiful scene along the river. I like the atmosphere and the colors of the day. Well taken.

A very good one at sunrise with the dobbywallahs and the boat as silhouettes standing out on the Ganges
Never been so close to to the bridge going to the other side
Bravo, best regards

A very fine capture of theses dhobis beating their linen in the river. The depth of field is great, keeping a touch of detail in the background to keep the context of what is happening. The soft morning sun reflecting on the water gives a warm glow and a very peaceful feeling to the scene. A great timely capture and an interesting note, too.

Hi, Dwaipayan, again!
This is very creative idea to take this view in the sunset lights. This is the Gang, and this view and this scene reminds me another places on the Mekong River in Laos. The train bridge on the background told us about the present days. ;)

What a beautiful scene you have seen and photographed! The afternoon light built very unique and charming mood of the moment to make it really eye-catching. Well managed work. TFS!

Impressive composition I love the juxtaposition between the silhouetted wallahs and the moving barge shrouded by subtle low morning light and warmity on the dominant is fantastic. The positioning of the sun is effective, as is the contrast with the foreground plus the surface of the shiny calm water. Very well seen and lovely tranquil feel to this super shot with plenty of depth and detail in such a beautiful setting. Lovely how you caught the rising sun & how it carries on through to the wonderful scene. A pleasure to view, simply gorgeous! Congrats and TFS

a cross-light managed perfectly, with a natural and vital scene on the ghat, which you've caught in all its splendour. I like the good contrast between the people, the boat, and the beautiful soft tones in the image.
The sun and its reflections on the river complete a beautiful composition.

Another interesting and attractive daily life picture where nature plays an important role as well!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, horizontal format, chosen pov and composition are all excellent here too!
TFS - congrats,
Enjoy your week-end,

Cia Dwaypaian, fascinating sunset with lovely silhoettes, magic atmosphere, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

That's a splendid photo containing all the oriental mystery of India. And some realism, too. The colors of the dawn are natural and delicate - and the silhuettes of the working men and the passing boat with the old iron bridge in the BG; thes things are all elements in a top capture.
All the best
