About 300 metres from the market (Pudimadaka) is this beach with quite a lot of fishing activity. I found this fish with a long and pointed (scary looking) 'nose'. I don't know what fish it is and why it was left alone. When I prepared to take a picture, these two boys posed for me. Pardon the harsh backlight which I could not manage with any success.

I think this is a swordfish. It's quite tasty, the meat being fairly simílar to that of a tuna fish. But maybe this was dead before it was washed up on the beach, which would wxplain why it was left. It's a good photo with a somewhat dramatic atmosphere created by the boys and young man watching you, also by the way people are spread out across the beach. The colours are not perfect but the light is very good and creates fine reflections in the wet sand.

I also think this I'd a swordfish, one of the most beautiful creatures to be found in the sea. Even dead like this, it still has a very fine majesty, a king of the sea.
To be honest, I see nothing wrong with your lighting here, but I am a fan of strong backlight, so that might be just me. This is an excellent busy scene, and the many people spread across the beach counter the death of the fish, and make this a great combination of candid and portrait photography. Really nicely done, and interesting daily life scene.

L'ambiance sur cette plage est bien restituée par le rendu très typé de ces teintes.ces personnes par leur regard semblent toutefois un peu gênés par la présence du phorographe.

this is a swordfish, it's found in the Aegean Sea too. It's very tasty and served at most seaside restaurants all over Greece. When a fishing boat brings it to a harbour, people usually gather to look and ask the fisherman for details. Strange how it ended up abandoned on this crowded beach. You captured an interesting scene with the boys posing and other people walking around them. There's great depth and the homogeneous reflection of the sky creates a graphical impression. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

What a catch !!! Great show from the beach.The boy seems to be the owner of the fish probably swam ashore with a strong wave.Keep sharing and have a great day.

If I consider the size of the fish and its body features, especially its rostrum, it is not a swordfish Sathya but a spearfish, I'm impressed by the fishermen skills in that place, it's not easy to capture such species with the types of local boats they use

Daily life shot and that fish engages viewers very well, the detail is excellent down to main interest off-centre with good contrast and stand out from the background. Good record shot of productive day, Well done, TFS.

Its indeed a swordfish...we get them in Mumbai markets sometimes. Normally these get washed up to the shore dead, after being injured by a trawler. I like the daily life scene and the reflection in the wet sand...
