Fishermen checking their nets and repairing them wherever necessary. Shot taken at a fishing village near Colva beach in South Goa.
Colva in South Goa was a small village in the past. Today it is one of the most loved beaches in Goa. It is 39 kms away from the state capital of Panaji. It has 20 kms of palm fringed, sun drenched white sand beaches. The famous Church of Our Lady Of Mercy is located in Colva.
I had gone to the village very early in the morning before sunrise to catch the local fishermen in action as they were returning from the sea after fishing. Got a few nice shots. Hope you like it.
Thanks for having a look.

Dobar tekst o mestu i trenutku, lep pogled ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, ostrina, kontrast i perspektiva, lepo pokazano mesto sa ribarima i trenutak sa oblacima koji donose kisu.
Dobra kompozicija, lepo uhvacen trenutak.
Imajte lep i uspesan dan, sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela, srecno.

Namaskar dear Subho
An excellent B&W shot, very natural and one where you could probably increase the contrast, although that's a matter of personal choice. I like the high POV, the angle which you chose and of course the inclusion of the nets. Nice work.
Thanks for sharing, have a lovely day

a nice daily life scene is presented by you in monochrome. I like it and also like to see this in colour too. Pls upload the colour version in workshop... Overall a very good composition where we can enjoy the atmosphere nicely. A nice one indeed. Tfs.

a very attractive and remarkably vivid scene from the fishermen's daily life on the beach of Colva. I like very much the solid composition and dynamic rhythm the diagonals have created in your frame. The boat in the sea and the scene further down the beach expand the picture and offer interesting repetition of the main theme. The monochrome has been rendered superbly and has made the scene so rewarding and atmospheric. There's a delightful 3D effect too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

like this B&W study. It captures the mood and concentration of these fisherman succinctly, but also becomes atmospheric and moody in this medium too. Nicely rendered tones and a classy presentation. Excellent!
Have a great week - B.

Very nice b&w capture from Colva.
Very good layout. Dark cloudy sky creates a perfect backround to the scenery.
TFS and best regards

Ciao Subho, lovely B&W, nice scene, superb sky, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

without the distraction of colour it`s easy to appreciate the shapes and textures of the fishermens nets and baskets.
The boats in the BG add their own interest to a nicely composed daily life scene.
Kind regards Les.

Beautiful scene with fishermen at work, great composition and lighting, combined with BW creates as result a stormy atmosphere

Hi Subho, very good photo on black of this interesting scene of daily life with a nice background and white, beautifully captured in this great and beautiful photography. Interesting picture with good sharpness, depth, light and quality. Very good and nice job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.
Good morning and happy start to the week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

Although the colours of early morning can sometimes be beautiful this is a fine conversion to B&W. The photo has probably not lost any of its beauty since it relies so heavily on its strong composition. You did well to go so close to the boat and the two fishermen and really make them fill the foreground, while at the same time giving us a generous view of the beach and the persons walking along the sea. The dark clouds crete a good atmosphere.
Noel_Byrne (22092) 2014-03-03 11:07
A beach scene would not instantly appear to be a candidate for B&W conversion, but a genius idea to do it, as its created a very dramatic scene. While the men are doing an everyday task, that sky behind looks so ominous, and gives the impression the men could easily be preparing for some epic sea battle under the shadow of angry gods. Really nicely seen and presented, I like this a lot.
mcmtanyel (11571) 2014-03-03 21:42
This is a very nice B&W photo, though I can't help wondering what the colors are like. Any chance we can see a color version in the WS?

Dear Mr. Shubho,
A very good and impressive photo in Black and white. The clouds are looking very nice. Thanks for sharing.

nice capture of the scene at beach,the lighting is really wonderful and create beautiful contrasts,
I find that the presentation in B&W was a good choice,
thanks for sharing,
SnapRJW (30002) 2014-03-04 3:49
Hello Subho - I very much like the subject and your B&W conversion here. You may consider dodging in a little more detail in the very dark areas but overall I think the shot is well composed and a good DL shot. Warm regards Rosemary
marina7 (8051) 2014-03-04 10:28
really nice photo, wish the nose of the boat hadn't been cropped though:) The black and white treatment gives it a bit dramatic and stormy look. Doesn't feel like before sunrise, more like afternoon thunderstorm:)
And yes, the beaches are gorgeous there!
Thanks and best wishes!
Apurba20 (984) 2014-03-04 22:50
Nice black & white. Brings out the sombre mood so well.
Good POV of the boats.
fabbs99 (16147) 2014-03-04 23:07
Nice shot of the Goan beach in monochrome.Very well captured with good clarity and sharpness.TFS.
danos (84301) 2014-03-05 1:58
excellent the B/W scene with the fishermen to fis their nets near their boat.I like this beautiful event with the dark and frost threaten sky to enhance the beauty and the singularity of the snapshot.Well done.
Graal (95974) 2014-03-05 6:12
nice photo and interesting theme about the daily life of fishermen. Good shot and composition. Fine effect in B&W. I like it.
Have a nice day.
willperrett (6388) 2014-03-06 1:18
I love the drama in your choice of b/w for this shot. The sky in particular, while fairly clearly darkened in post-production, is certainly a stand-out feature. I might have tried to bring out some detail in the shadows of the boat's hull; but otherwise this is a fine shot.
Cricri (102973) 2014-03-06 9:43
J'aime beaucoup cette composition, pas fan du N/B mais le contraste est super ici, cela convient bien avec le ciel dramatique, juste dommage d'avoir couper la pointe avant du bateau, mais cela reste une très belle réalisation
COSTANTINO (52782) 2014-03-06 13:13
Hello dear friend
we had the same idea about this shot
my shot about fishermen is colorful
and yours is in sepia
but every one has its personal interest
I like the high pov and the chosen
thanks for sharing it with us
jcpix (12508) 2014-03-06 19:44
These types of daily life moments are some of the most intriguing and learned pictures. I love being able to get a sense of what takes place from a locale so unfamiliar to me...plus, it also gives a good idea of culture. I was initially drawn towards the cloudy sky and heavy contrast, but a closer inspection of detail reveals the effort these gentlemen put into their work, which makes a strong impact from a local perspective. Good choice to go black & white, there feels to be a bit more of a dramatic sensation to the imagery. A wonderful result! Enjoy the day ahead. Take care.
RhodieIke (11512) 2014-03-07 23:20
Great shot of these fishermen reparing their nets, the B@W adds a great mood,and highlights the dark clouds.
Super Pov, well managed, Tfs, and nice info about this super place and it's splendid beaches.
Miguel82 (21702) 2014-04-02 18:51
Good idea to use a b&w version, the sky was grey announcing rain Subho, thanks for your last advice, these fishermen are repairing their net, the sea isn't rough, they're brave to go fishing with such boat, regards
