A sunset at Thirukalukundrum
The kids were playing alongside the lake. Apparently, they saw me pointing the camera at them so they put up a "show" to my camera.

Great image of the magical moment, children, shadows, reflections, golden tones.

The photo first struct me because it looks like a sculpture. Each boy with a different pose enhances the picture more. And the refelction on the water with the golden colour predominant is very good.

This is really a good one. Nicely spotted and sillhoutte of junior heros of India make the picture. Look at their poses.. really great yaar.

This is a really nice image, a beautiful setting and lovely compostion with the kids playing, the reflections and the depth given by the background. On top of that, it's taken at the perfect time of day to give it a nice warmth from the setting sun. Only negative for me is the fact that it's not level, but this is something you could easily fix in post-processing.

I like the silhouettes of the kids on that slice of land. Super reflections, beautiful light.

très jolie photo. J'aime beaucoup les couleurs dorées et les différentes silhouettes qui se découpent dans ce décor. Bien vu.
zmey (7335) 2009-03-17 13:24

Very good job and nice catch.
shama (149) 2009-03-17 14:31
Ok this is absolutely amazing.
The type of photo i like, full of feelings and with a clear subject. The reflection here is totally necessary and beautifyl, i could not imagine this photo without the reflection.
The standing figures of the children are 'posing' great to the camera.
I like it very much, regards

wowwwwwwww...my friend ...you became the best :)
Bartleby (13552) 2009-03-17 14:37
wow, this string of children's silhouettes and their reflections are really wonderful; everyone has a different and interesting attitude and they all stand out so well against this golden background. I'm sure you must have tried other POVS from that scene, right? Don't get me wrong, I do like this one a lot but I sense there are other things you must have tried here, am I right?
daddo (26740) 2009-03-17 14:41
Namaste Senthil. You don't strike often now, but when you do, you do it with force. Wonderful image of boyhood- the time in life when companionship, adventure and boundless energy all combine to make us remember those days as the Golden Times in our lives. I can read all of that in this beautiful, poetic capture of childhood. Top work. regards. Klaudio.

Fine composition, Of course, the light is simply splendid and generous and the reflection is absolutely gorgeous.
a really good one
BWJ (3094) 2009-03-17 19:13
The warm colors, silhouettes of the children, and the reflections are perfectly beautiful. It is a gorgeous composition.
batalay (38773) 2009-03-17 20:01
this is a classic for Trekearth. The composition with the silhouettes of the children, equidistant except the one doing a handstand. I want to make this a favorite, by demoting another photograph from my already filled gallery of favorites.
hispic (9652) 2009-03-17 20:12
The kids seem to strike poses as if you directed them, because it is too perfect. It seems you have a potential for enhancing red of the sky.
sevy (58) 2009-03-18 1:06
A very good photo thanks to the golden light well capted against the light and the show with the children, all well separated and visible with different silhouettes.
jhm (152164) 2009-03-18 2:31
What a nice idea, so wonderful reflections.
The quiet water care for an excellent composition.
Lovely game of this childs.

Wonderful composition, with great colors ! I like it a lot !
patdeph (35748) 2009-03-25 1:28
wonderful,I like very much!The colours and the loght are somptuous,and I love the black silhouettes of the splendid landscape,and of course,of these children playing there!I add it in my theme about India!
eversmile (11636) 2009-03-25 16:18
this is an outstanding shot! The light management and the colors let me mute of admiration, the golden tones are particularly enchanting and the choregraphy is so surprising,even stronger with the reflections! What I find very intriguing is that the reflection of the boy who is upside down, seems autonomous from the original... as in a complete different position! Well, that is an illusion, I know it, but anyway, it bluffes me. He is also the Y of the word "Joy" while another boy keep the O in hand... but where is the J ??? Anyway, the result is great! Bravo! My congratulations!
everlasting (15224) 2009-03-26 3:28
Nice light and yes full of joy, the reflections and the silhouettes work very well. i wonder what would happen if you had cropped he top leaving just the reflected plam trees, just a thought
fohoizey (1130) 2009-04-24 8:14
GORGEOUS PICTURE !!!
svefay (810) 2011-06-18 13:57
nice reflection, good light and composition, TFS...
jabber (323) 2013-10-02 12:44
Cartier Bresson beleive that every place has a harmonic time that you can capture all the feel of that place in a shot and this is a duty of a photographer to wait and find that moment and he named that decisive moment.
when i saw your shot, i remember a photo from Bresson who took it n India from above of some buildings. you can see lot`s of people at the top of roofs. some of them sit or stand but a kid between them was dancing and it make a big movement in photo and you think that all the people in photo are a part of a dance.
your photo try to find that moment i so much like it but i think you may be spent more time there to find that harmony.
after a long time i see a shot that it has a deep feeling inside,``the happiness``
swapankumarroy (2847) 2014-07-03 10:24
It is an excellent shot. The reflection of activities of the boys is wonderful and shoot the picture at perfect time. Going on ..
