nicely composed picture with very interesting architecture on the shore adding very much to the final result. I like the slight angle at which the boat has been shot.
Thanks for sharing

Nice to see such a big boat in a lake !!!! The lake may be a big one. You have taken this pic from a good angle through which we can see both lake and the palace hotel.
Thanks for sharing.

I can believe the opinions about its romantic appeal. It looks beautiful. Your inclusion of the boat was a good idea. It creates a guide, a sense of depth and prevents it from being just another shot of a beautiful building.
The light is very soft and mystical.
Have a great w/e,

wow! This is superb. Like your composition with fine light and good colours. A bit less sharp but I like your presentation. Nice one. Tfs.

This photo almost gives an impression that it's a view from the seaside. It's a very nice composition with the boat and the ducks filling the foreground. The blueish tone, which I find quite correct, creates a kind of dreamy atmosphere that fits the romantic style of the palace very well.

Excellent moody and atmospheric shot from this famous lake in Udaipur. The bajra has been very well placed in the frame which is not obstructing the view of the palace in the BG. Nicely done, keep it up! Thanks for sharing.

very nice the view as the presentation of the luxurious hotel as surrounded from the lake's water.The sailing boat as is anchored,
and the black ducks to swim near it, make the image even more effective.
Have a good WE,Danos
