A view from Marine Drive, Mumbai in the morning. With summer at its peak, and sporadic clouds filling up the sky, it is a mix of shade and sunshine.

It is the most populous city in India, second most populous metropolitan area in India, and the fifth most populous city in the world, with an estimated city population of 18.4 million and metropolitan area population of 20.7 million as of 2011.

Nice view of the concrete jungle. Mumbai is really a commercial and entertainment hub of India. The sea colour is beautifully captured by you.
Thanks for sharing.

This is not quite how I expected Mumbai.
Although I knew it to be the capital of India, I just didn't expect it to be such an amalgamation of skyscrapers. You have fulfilled the objective of TE - to learn about the world through photography!
A nicely 'thirds' composed shot, with interesting light contrasts and a small focal boat to help create the sense of depth.
Have a good day,

Une image très bien composée photographiquement.
Cette image a toute sur le site de TE, apprendre par la photographie.
Je suis surpris par la taille gigantesque de la ville.
Très bonne journée.

Interesantan tekst o gradu sa opisom, lep pogled na pristaniste i modernu arhitekturu ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazano pristaniste i arhitekrura.
Prijatno vece i mirna noc, sve najbolje.
An interesting article on the town with a description, a nice view of the port and modern architecture ...
Good time recording and contrast nicely demonstrated dock and arhitekrura.
Good evening and peaceful night, all the best.

well taken cityscape from opposite bank of the water. The single boat helps to make the composition slightly more interesting. Good and fresh colors and sharpness.
Thanks for sharing and all the best

hard to believe Mumbai has 18 million people! All of Canada has 35 Million!!!!!!!!!!
I get the feeling there is not alot of space for people to build or to live? very busy and compact.
nice to see this view, its a view that we don't get to see often. the small boat helps to put things into perspective too.
thanks for this one
