This shot was taken from a luxury beach resort close to the shore temples. GRT Temple bay. We also see a fisherman getting ready to head out to sea in the foreground. These colorfull boats were donated to the fishermen after the tsunami as we also see the paint on them is relatively new....
About the shore temples...
Close to the sea, the beautiful shore temple consists of two temples dedicated to Lord Shiva and a small temple of Anantasayana or reclining Vishnu.
The complex dates back to Narasimha Varman I (630-668) of the Pallava dynasty. Mamallapuram comes from Mamalla, one of the titles of this king.

Nice rendering of the coast and its atmosphere (without the luxury beach!).
The strong contrast and the dark framing contribute to the success of your picture.

there are windy weather and presence of man and boat did this photo very lively. I like the panoramic format
