Hi Caleb: Nice moment you bring us in this photo, the calmness of the sea are very well balance with the standing position of the women and the mirror on the ground gives a poetic touch that I like. Congratulations.

Excellente prise de vue, les couleurs des saris se reflettant sur le sable mouillé, c'est simple et très joli.

a very nice capture of the colourful ladies and the child at the beach. Beautiful reflections of them in the wet sand.
I like the frame and composition.

Hello Caleb! Beautiful shot here, the women are well postioned and very sharp. Their colors really provide a stark contrast to the rest of scene and perhaps that was your intent. Very well done.

Mazing framing! Colors are perfect too. It is so relaxing as an image and so optimistic

Stirling shot, Caleb with these pristine reflections on the wet sand. More than that, it is exquisitely comosed in the frame. Outstanding!

Beautiful reflection and colors Caleb. The few colors on the place contrast very well with the women clothes.

Its not just a balmy evening, Its a balmy picture as well.

A well seen shot with a nice off centre composition. The colours and reflections are great, and I like the boats on the horizon.

Nice shot here Caleb. The dresses, in particular the orange, look good against the clear background of the sand and water. Reflections look good as well.

Beautiful reflectios in the water but B&W would have magnified the beauty of this shot...is mine personal opinion and nothing else.

very nice one, those women waiting for theirs husbands coming from the fishing in pastels colours, i like the boats in the background and the position and reflection of the women's group.

I like graphic style on this photo.Also reflections on sand are amazing.
Good rule of third and water diagonal.Bravo!

A simple shot, yet the perfect positioning of the tourists, the boats in the horizon and mirror-like reflections makes this an image to treasure.

Hei, how can u get only three persons at Puri beach, i alwayas found it jammed. Anyway you have perfectly placed the women . It is a nice idea to include their reflections. The sea is little bit blurred and that really adds a new dimension in this shot.
The boats at the further end gives a very good sense of perspective.

Hi CAleb, GREAT GREAT GREAT SHOT!
I love the colours, your compo, the REFLEX...
summersun (4978) 2006-10-28 7:05
simple but effective composition; I like the pastel colors of the sea and sand, enhancing the beauty of those 3 figures. lovely reflection in the wet sand.

Nice shot of Puri's beach.
Nice POV, reflections and colors.
Cheers from Hong Kong.
eleparc (24063) 2006-10-28 20:16
i do like this touch of colors and the reflection of the three women on the wet sand.. greatcompo!
RADEEH (2802) 2006-10-28 22:09
Mindblowing shot of Puri, it bring back the memories of Puri Beach which we have visited last week. The positioning of the human element is simply poetic. The warm colours of their dresses and its reflections are the highlights of this shot. I too have posted some Puri shots.
But this one is outstanding Great work TFS

the vibrant clothes make this chill out photo a bit more lively...probably what it needs...lovely mood enhanced by the almost non visible boats on the horizon...very well framed...cheers, arturo

Such a tranquil, peaceful composition brought alive with the rich coloured saris and their reflections. Very nice framing.
sayan (2617) 2006-10-30 1:51
This is wonderful. The reflections of the ladies on the beach are really wonderful. Colours are great and so is their positions.

A poetic picture. Looks like a painting.
Very good compo. Beautiful light & colours.
Thanks for sharing

j'adore cette image. Le reflet réalisé avec les femmes est original et et peu commun. L'image est douce et tranquille.
très bon travail.
prumod (8300) 2006-11-17 1:43
great shot! you showed perfectly how beautiful can be a simple scene with perfect hands!!!

Hi Caleb, you are still my favorites too when it comes to up close understanding of the Indian's cultural/religious elements. This is one of those rare photos of the Indian beaches. Seeing so much pictures from India, of its streets, temples, devotees and the colorful effects make one wonders whether the Indian continent has life on its shores.
AmiBe (6042) 2006-11-22 18:03
I like the simplicity here.
Very elegant shot.
I think they are waiting their husband.
ondrej (211) 2006-12-06 16:08
Well composed, nice use of space.
marknunnerley (2780) 2006-12-13 9:20
666. Thats how many photos you have posted. Scarry. Well Caleb, different from what we usually see from you but a beautiful shot. The balance is great and the reflections of the people is an added bonus, as is the boats in the water. And the tones of the setting sun are very, very nice. Good one. Can see why it's someones favourite. Sorry, 4 fav!
rbassin (24005) 2006-12-14 16:04
Je découvre celle-ci aussi,
C'est génial, c'est simple , c'est très très beau.

Your photograph is exceptional.
hackman (151) 2007-05-01 7:03
This is simply excellent
eversmile (11636) 2011-11-24 9:29
That's a pic I did not know from you. It makes me smile, as it is three ladies like in my "Breaking the waves"... very much Puri beach at sunset! I like the shiny colors of the sarees in contrast with the ocean that looks like a watercolor painting.
