I like boat races, be it the famous one in Kerala or the not so famous one like here in Assam. Not many know about thic race which usually takes place in August on the mighty Brahmaputra. This place Sualkuchii is a silk village about an hour away from capital Guwahati. No time these days post processing, presented as it is.

A very interesting picture - it is worth to note the face of every one participants, their expression is remarkable, especially the man's in the middle. I like the colours of this photo, too. Pal

A very good shot Anjan of the boat race with grit and determination on their faces. The man encouraging the team with his hands raised and the colourful design on the side of the boat with the splashed water added beauty. I heard about this place but not seen such event. TFS. Regards.

Nice one indeed, very professional, but I agree with SUbir about the hand of the standing man.

Anjan itís a very nice picture, the overall mood of the picture and timing is excellent.

When you take shots like this, timing is the key. Your timing is excellent in this shot as we see the leader raising his hands, maybe egging his team on. But regret that his hands have been cut.. otherwise this is a superb work!

Hi Anjan ,
Its just brilliant. Lot of vigor, lot of dynamism in it. Captured at the perfect moment and the close view gives a nice impact.

Very nice action shot.Well captured.TFs.

Perfectly focused foreground and clear expression on the faces.
Can you help me! Why the water behind the boat is so much washed out to be white?
arjun_das (1851) 2007-07-12 22:46
excellent capture of the men in action. great body gesture of the man standing in the middle and probably shouting instructions for the sailors. credits for the sharp focus and spot on exposure in view of the fact that you have not done any PS. tfs.
sagar (2410) 2007-09-06 23:13
Excellent shot.The firm determination that is reflected out of the faces is brilliant.
