I have taken this shot at Dakkhineswar Ghat near Dakkhineswar Temple in the beautiful evening....This I took from the steps approaching the Ghats.I had to move up and down the steps till I got this image...One of the famous temples devoted to Goddess Kali in Eastern India. The temple is situated beside the river Ganges which shaped the Indian Geology religion, life and philosophy. Life around the river is an instant mix of the past and the present.
The temple compound, apart from the nine-spired main temple, contains a large courtyard surrounding the temple, with rooms along the boundary walls. There are twelve shrines dedicated to Shiva—Kali's companion—along the riverfront, a temple to Radha-Krishna, a bathing ghat on the river, a shrine dedicated to Rani Rashmoni. The chamber in the northwestern corner just beyond the last of the Shiva temples, is where Ramakrishna spent a considerable part of his life.
Hope you all enjoy this....

I see here a nice contrast image with the pink sun high to the sky.
Sharpness and clarity are pleasant for look at.
Perfect taken with excellent colors and a specially boat in foreground
Very well done, TFS.

Certamente una visione interessante per le luci e le ombre in un ambiente , per noi, orientale.
Un assaggio di un viaggio che bisogna fare e che tu vivi nel quotidiano.

Hello madhumita. If I remember correctly, you have deleted a photo. But now you can show another photo of the same scene with the boat in the middle. The overall composition is thus more convincing. The beautiful evening mood pleases me very well. I am amazed at how well you've handled the light. Rgds, Wolfgang.

very romantic atmospheric capture. Well used silhouette of the boat set against the dreamy reflection of the sun in the river.
Very well done,

I like above all the colors and the contrast of tis shot.
ChrisJ (100136) 2011-10-29 9:08
You've nailed the sunset with this shot. Good sharpness, reflections, silhouettes, colour, graphism, saturation, & a level horizon. It's all here! Tfs.

a nice capture. The composition is nice though I think if you captured it a few seconds earlier keeping the boat a bit left in the frame it would be better. Anyway it is also a nice one which I liked a lot for such romantic colour tone. An excellent one. Tfs.

Vrlo interesantan i dobar tekst o mestu i obicajima ...
Lep pogled na camac u reci, sa refleksima suncevih zraka, silueta i nebo obojeno lepim bojama sunca, lepa fotografija.
Dobar snimak u pravcu sunca, lepe boje.
Sve najbolje za vikend.
Imajte lepo creme za dane odmora.
Very interesting and good article on the place and customs ...
Nice view of the boat in the river, with the reflexes of sun rays, silhouette and beautiful sky painted colors of the sun, beautiful images.
A good shot in the direction of the sun, beautiful colors.
All the best for the weekend.
Have a nice creme for the holidays.
josepmarin (57831) 2011-10-29 12:46
a good management of this strong cross-light, you have reached a great result with the visual power of the silhouettes of the landscape and of the boat, as well as with the magnificent orange hues on the sky and on the water.
The nice reflections on the water add more beauty to your composition.
A beautiful work.

the view of the sunset is dreamily with the vertical format to creates depth in the image.The passing by boat between the reflection of the sun, makes it more effective.
nobuikehonda (3848) 2011-10-30 10:21
Another very successful image from your impressive gallery, the overall colour rendition of the image has become even stronger, thus the impression that the photo gives us is even more memorable. I particularly like the ring or halo around the sun. In the sunset view, however there remains a powerful and an intense presence of the setting sun. The golden path and the passing boat are very nicely captured and presented. The distribution of each layer has also become more refined. It has gained more stability. And the presentation of the overall image is admirable. I feel very relieved and feel the healing energy. Thank you for this image.
With my very best wishes for the upcoming days,
Have a very pleasant day, madhumita
P.S: Thank you.
