Wadduwa coast, looking the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka.
The mother and the aunt were giving their baby boy -maybe- his first sea experience.
Cropped, increased sharpness & saturation. Applied Neat Image, axis correction and gradual toning.

The is a soft quality throughout this image that makes it very appealing.
Strong composition of this family scene that looks natural and spontaneous. I particularly appreciate the position of the three standing subjects, not interfering on one another, and nicely positioned at the same time.
And what a backdrop! Lovely and exotic.
Have a nice weekend!

une image superbe de la vie quotidienne d'une famille
Beaucoup de tendresse émane de cette image
Les couleurs du coucher de soleil dans le ciel et la posture très naturelle de tous les personnages est un vrai plaisir des yeux
Bonne journée et bien amicalement

I like this photo a lot. Lots of sharpness and nice color as well as a nice story here. Only thing that I wish could be fixed is that ultra use of sharpness on the horizon. Find it too distracting
Overall I love this photo though.

Well, the light and the spot are wonderful, thats clear.
The capture of the moment and the fact that all persons are more of less `en profiel`, and the strong contrast in the persons on the right, makes it to a strong composition. The lady bowing to the activity in the sand makes it even better.

I must say Erdem that this is a beauteous vision. Wonderful light, exciting colours and a precious moment captured with a gentle eye and heart. The POV and composition match the vastness of sea and sky with the vastness of a mother's love. Cok, cok guzel. Klaudio.

A beautiful photo here...and it what a stunning first sea experience for this little one if indeed it was! Just marvelous clouds and wonderful lighting you have captured here. Just very nicely done.

lovely sunset colors! The framing is classic and efficient. I think I might have brought further brightness on the mother though but still, this is beautiful.
