I took it in Udoypur sea beach. People were enjoying this lonely sea beach, sometime used to take seat for a while, drink coconut water. I liked this line of vacant chairs very much and now wish to share it with you. But after a long thought I decided to post it with black and white version. I think it serves the mood much better. Please see the colour version in WS. I think you also choose the B & W version. Hope you like it.
Merry Christmas to all.

The composition is great with the line of chairs in diagonal and a few persons in background. I also like the reflection of the chairs.
You're right, the b&w version is much better here.
Merry Christmas to you too!

Another good shot from this place . The B&W conversion was a good idea to suit the mood, framing and sharpness are simply superb.
. Well done

interesting photo, its not everyday you see a line of chairs placed on the beachfront like that. For the record, i prefer the BW version. great angular lines.

One nice and intresthing scene in B&W edit
Good work and lovely perspective
delpeoples (54463) 2009-12-27 3:20
Hi Subhendu, this photo has lovely symmetry not just in the chairs, but their shadows and the line of the sea, the horizon and the shore. Excelent choice the B&W. TFS and have a happy day, Lisa

Very fine chairs. Wonderful beach. Superb black and white composition.
diomed (13926) 2009-12-27 9:16
great B&W, nice perspective, good POV, amazing, a bit melancholic scene.
JT50 (1491) 2009-12-27 10:05
You are right. The black and white version
is much better. The coloured version reflects
a lot of plastic which makes the image unnatural.
The B/W version is more realistic. Good POV with
equally good DOF.
Have a nice week.
plimrn (21344) 2009-12-27 11:27
You're right the B&W version is much more effective, the contrasting chair colors detract from symmetry and harmony of the scene.
Wishing you health, love & joy in the coming year (HLJ), Pat

Ciao dear Subhendu,
excellent composition in B&W, in which you have captured a pleasant perspective and a good depth of field. Compliments!
Ciao, have a nice week!

Parece que vai haver um espetáculo no mar com todas essas cadeiras bem enfileiradas. Interessante e muito original a sua foto, Gostei da versão P&B.

Very impressive shot. Great POV and perspective. With wonderful lighting.
best wishes and have a nice day
danos (89625) 2009-12-28 0:31
perfect composition with the line of the plastic chairs on the sand to create a perfect B/W shot.I think that this version is better from the colour one,because of the oversaturate sky.
I wish,you and your family a wonderful, peaceful and prosperous New Year,Danos
ymrk (14955) 2009-12-28 2:41
The row of the chairs are seeming affectingly..Very regular,so creative idea..Regards my friend...
rahulm (175) 2009-12-28 4:21
Nice composition and contrast. You have converted a general scene to a surprising panorama with your imaginative Eye.
Giorgio (11279) 2009-12-28 4:57
- Hello Subhendu, first good idea for B&W mode and cheer for this sympathetic picture very artistic ans graphic, superb!
Have a good end of year.
Urs (14082) 2009-12-28 7:27
That is really a very strange photograph which looks best in b&w. Well selected format too. What were they doing when lining up the chairs in the lake. Funny idea indeed. Fine gray hues and high sharpness. Well done
Seasonal greetings to you and your family

Very fine composition, amazing construction. Nice beach. Very fine black and white seascape.
darek1978 (13361) 2009-12-29 6:47
A most beautiful image looking over the wet sand towards the sea. The clarity of this photo is excellent. I'm also impressed with very smart composition. Well done!
Thanks for sharing,
With the upcomming New Year I just wanted to wish you and your family the very best!!
Longroute (19396) 2009-12-29 8:15
I think that the black and white version is better, it enhances the graphic effect. Neat and well built composition with the chairs both giving depth and a graphic effect and a lovely view of this huge beach and the ocean. The people in my opinion are the best focal points.
Best regards and wishes for the New Year,
Waylim (25368) 2010-01-04 23:09
This may be one of your best shot. Very interesting setting and subject. I like the line of of empty chair, as to invite us in and take a seat. I like also the different type of chair with different shades and pattern. The black and white convertion is a great idea, I like it. the reflection is very nice and good rich tone. Composition also work very well here. Thanks.
sacavem (18614) 2010-02-09 3:47
I like the two versions.I never saw such a scene on the beach:)
Very nicely captured and composed shot from a very good POV.
