I would say this is not so typical Sri lankan landscape, and this view reminds me some European places, but the catamarans are marks of a local life.
A catamaran is geometry-stabilized, that is, it derives its stability from its wide beam, rather than having a ballasted keel like a monohull. Being ballast-free and lighter than a monohull, a catamaran can have a very shallow draught. The two hulls will be much finer than a monohull's, the reduced drag allowing faster speeds. A sailing multihull will heel much less than a sailing monohull, so its sails spill less wind and are more efficient. The limited heeling means the ride may be more comfortable for passengers and crew, although catamarans can exhibit an unsettling "hobby-horse" motion. Unlike a self-righting monohull, if a gust causes a sailing catamaran to capsize, it may be impossible to right the multihull; but having no ballast, an upturned catamaran will be unlikely to sink.
A catamaran's two hulls are joined by some structure, the most basic being a frame, formed of akas. More sophisticated catamarans combine accommodation into the bridging superstructure. Catamarans may be driven by sail and/or engine. Originally catamarans were small yachts, but now some ships and ferries have adopted this hull layout because it allows increase speed, stability and comfort.

This is a most pleasant composition, pleasing in its very simplicity. It is nicely lit and has agreeable natural colours and excellent sharpness.

bella e suggestiva questa immagine .
Splendida anche la nitidezza ed eccellenti i colori.
Particolarmente efficace la composizione.
Peccato che il formato verticale non entri interamente nel video e non ne permetta una visione più agevole.
Ciao e buona domenica

Un très beau point de vue sur cette rive ensoleillée ou les barques se reposent entre deux pêches. La lumière est magnifique et fait bien ressortir les détails.

The big tree is beautifully reflected in the water. A peaceful and pleasant scene with these special boats resting on the shore. Attractive colours and a good note.

You captured such perfect light here! Amazing scene, and your composition is just perfect. The tree is just perfectly placed in the frame, and has a fine reflection, a nice touch to include its whole reflection too which balances it out nicely. Fascinating looking boats too.
The sky in this shot looks like it is promising rain!
All the best

Idyllic scene, the two outriggers resting on the bank with the dominant tree mirrored in the calm water.
In the West we call this type of vessel an "outrigger", due to its light narrow hull with a outrig balance flotation attached.
Outriggers are very popular in the Hawaiian Islands and throughout the Pacific.

I like the atmosphere of the picture, with these two pirogues in front of the nice landscape. I would have cropped half of the bottom, I think the reflection of the tree is not sufficiently eye-catching to keep so much water.

ich muss dir Recht geben, dies Landschaft ist nicht so typisch für Sri Lanka. Dein Foto ist wirklich sehr gut, es gefällt mir, gratuliere.
