The Coin Collector- in Gopalpur sea beach...
Yes, I found this interesting moment in this beach... The local boys collect coins, (which may lost from the pocket of tourist during bath, or... they dedicate those to the Ocean with some wish...) which returns with the sea shore at the time of high tide...
Liked this frame with the running boy who is on his job... He has to be quick enough to get that coin before the wash out of the next wave...
Here is it. Hope you'll like it.

Excellent portrait with an efficience framing, the young sportman is well locatd in the composition. You have very well collected the attitudes of the young boy. Nice colors too with a beautiful contrast between the green of the sea and the warm color of the sand.

nice the snapshot from the running boy on the wet sandy beach as try to find coins that fallen from the pockets of the tourists.The most of the coins i think, will he find looking at the beach without to run with this way you show us.

Your picture tells a story that bares thinking about. The boy is well placed in the composition and you have captured his movement well creating good dynamism. I like the shadows falling across the glistening wet sand and the subdued light and tones. The sea area is perhaps slightly over exposed but that is a minor detail that does not spoil the overall enjoyment.

Coin collection on the beach couldn't possibly be a way of getting rich. But this is a fine photo which is very nicely dominated by a diagonal between the green sea and the brown sand. The running boy is excellently captured "flying" over the beach, giving the composition a strong sense of movement and action. The boat in the upper left corner is a fine little detail.

an excellent capture of the coin collector, you have caught an image very dynamic and full of life, with a few wonderful reflections on the wet sand.
A hard work for this boy, who looks for the coins lost by the tourists, during the short time between a wave and the next one.
A great work.

A superb shot , well registered in time to create a wonderful motion in frame. Fine tonal balance and light.

Indeed a very interesting post, as much for the composition as for the note. Who would imagine that way of earning money ?
I love the dark silhouette of the boy against the brightly lit foreshore and sea full of rolling waves.
You also caught his attitude perfectly, as he is running after his "daily bread".
Congratulations and thanks for sharing.

Thanks for wring the descriptive notes...The timeing is unique and you have captured this in perfect White balance..
Shot is no-doubt sharp But In my opinion POV could have
been better. Please dont mind for my suggestions.
But nice details with good light management.
I love this shot and keep posting more...I am waiting.
Subho Dipabali !

io avrei detto che il ragazzo correva per fare footing,
invece capisco che corre per raccogliere in fretta i soldini.
Una bella inquadratura, eccellente qualità dell'immagine.

grande immagine in stile: "reportage", che mostra la semplicità della vita di questo luogo.
Una luce particolare, rende l'immagine ricca di atmosfera.
Well done and TFS!

Great capture at the right moment
I like the color contrast green of the sea, golden the beach
Interesting note, without it, who would imagine he is tuning for coins?
Enjoy photo and note TFS

Fine capture, I like the movement of the boy. Will he see coins moving so quickly? I usually collect shells or amber on our beaches. Pleasant atmosphere.
annjackman (19937) 2011-10-27 0:30
Wow - this is so well caught. The boy seems suspended in the air as he races across the beach. The colours of the sea and golden sand are a perfect BG and I like the way that you have caught some reflection.
vasilpro (40933) 2011-10-27 1:52
Wonderful composition, beautiful action scene, excellent POV and timing, lovely light and colors, fine photo work!
Best regards, Vasilis.

This is a nice action shot. You have captured the boy at the right moment as he is racing for the coin.Looks like both the feet are up in the air. I like the subtle reflection in the wet sand. The colors are superb and the atmosphere is great.
Wish you a very happy Deepavali

You caught a good moment when he is "flying" over the wet sand, giving the sense of motion, but for me he is too dark, and we only see a silhouette. I prepared a WS, but I can't post it today as I put 2 of them, I will send it to-morrow.

Wonderful image, dear Subhendu, another masterpiece in your gallery. You have stopped the time in the moment most beautiful and meaningful, getting a very suggestive scene, captured with excellent photo quality. It's very rare to see such beautiful photos in TE, sincere congratulations!
Ciao, have a nice Friday!

I think this is a wonderful image...the timing is excellent as you caught the runner with both his feet in air & reflecting well in the wet sand. I never knew such a 'profession' exists! Good contrast between the warm sand & the green sea. Khub bhalo chhobi! Aro bhalo hoto jodi ektu aro zoom korte, IMHO
