This is an ordinary image..When I clicked it I even thought is like same..but later on I found it has something that i want to show you..
In my feelings, It has a nice perspective which attracted me most and that's why i did not delete it.
This has been taken in Puri earlier this year. Time is at around 8 AM in the morning..due to fog and scattered cloud, beach was almost crowd-less..then I have seen some people were coming from the other side..
Found it very interesting and took this. Hope you all like this.

une superbe lumière du du soir avec le soleil qui brille sur l'eau et le sable et la présence des silhouettes qui marchent donnent un plus
un bon format vertical choisi
j'aime ce côté romantique d'une balade sur la plage au soleil couchant

spectacular the vertical format with the four coming people to walk on the wet beach.I like the colour tints of the scene making it so attractive and exceptional.

This is absolutely an outstanding work! Like it very much. You have done a great work with light management and sharpness here. Well done! TFS.
annjackman (21895) 2011-10-31 2:40
The silhouetted figures and their shadows are nicely walking into the picture towards that beautiful light on the water. The vertcal format and deep FG gives wonderful depth to the picture. Almost monochromatic - fabulous!

atmospheric and quite sensual composition. Love the light, shade and reflected glory of the sun on the beach. The silhouetted figures give it that earthly organic touch and also adds harmony to the image. It is beautiful, well executed and presented.
Wishing you a pleasant week - Brian.
jlbrthnn (76037) 2011-10-31 7:15
The composition is artistic and poetic. Elements are used well and placed well in the photo. The light and the exposure are controlled well. A photo very pleasant to look at. Bravo.
Have a nice day

Superb composition, beautiful silhouettes, lovely warm light and color tones, excellent POV and timing, very nice framework, TFS!
patdeph (35748) 2011-10-31 11:08
splendid picture in silvered colors,where I love the 4 small black sihouettes,the reflection of the sun,and the texture of the wet sand.This is superbly framed, with a perfect balance of the elements.
Fis2 (96737) 2011-10-31 14:37
Good composition and vertical frame.
I like colors and key.
nobuikehonda (3848) 2011-10-31 18:28
Hello dear Arijit,
I must enter your image by giving you the occlusion first. This is probably one of the most serene and beautiful images in your gallery. I like the fine light management and the equally splendid composition. In the given scene you have successfully introduced a very rhythmic presence of the people walking towards the ocean. Poetic yet abstract at the same time, the overall warm tone of the image is splendid. I like the image very much.
With my very best regards, and compliments,
Have a great week ahead, Arijit
Waylim (25502) 2011-10-31 18:45
Beautiful shot, I wouldn't say it's an ordinary image, maybe an ordinary daily life image, but a beautiful image for sure. I love the sunset light the muted and subdue color due to the opposit light, but it creates a very nice mood and atmosphere, I love how the sihouettes of the four people lined us very nicely as they walk in one straight line toward the sea. Also the reflection of the sun is wonderful.
nikkitta (17066) 2011-10-31 19:10
Great work with the light, really it has "something" interesting and unique ( the reflect )
The people walking at the beach so early in the morning add more interest at the capture
Great , TFS
pajaran (60061) 2011-10-31 23:04
Lepo mesto i trenutak, jutro sa maglom...
Lep pogled na pescanu plazu sa ljudima koji setaju, talase i sunce, lepa fotografija.
Dobar snimak u pravcu suca sa lepim refleksima na mokrom pesku i vodi, dobar rad i ulovljeni trenutak.
Nice place and moment, with the morning mist ...
Nice view of the sandy beach with people who walk around, waves and sun, beautiful images.
A good shot in the direction of a judge with some nice reflections on the wet sand and water, good work and captured the moment.
All the best.
erhan1958 (15685) 2011-11-01 1:05
great clarity and color
Nard (6972) 2011-11-01 3:06
Beautiful backlight with gold and silver colors. The vertical format gives a nice dimension to the view and I like the refelction on the wet sand and the solhouettes of the people walking.
ikeharel (70677) 2011-11-01 4:01
The morning haze dominating the scene, Arijit, and I wonder why most India photos carry this nature's phenomene, as i saw on TE.(never been there, though).
The silhouette of men on the beach give a dynamic scale to the image.
david_P (512) 2011-11-01 5:23
Beautifull reflexions on the ground of the sun and of these people, very well framed with the Horizon line in the middle, the symetry gives power to your photo
madhumita_roy86 (2344) 2011-11-01 6:40
You have done a great job... very nice exposure control....
very beautiful light management... shades & fine reflected glory of the sun on the beach is looking awesome....

A nice one Arijit. Marvellous view with good light management. Nice looking silhouetted people in the beach. Good composition with reflection. Tfs.
mkamionka (36250) 2011-11-01 9:33
very charming effect, the sun seems to be present three times here. The silhouettes make an important contribution too.
Very well done,
Cricri (118785) 2011-11-01 10:28
Très jolie composition, j'aime cette teinte particulière du coucher du soleil, les reflets dans l'eau et sur le sable mouillé, les silhouettes des personnes et leurs reflets, une image apaisante très joliment composer et réaliser, bravo
Budapestman (82620) 2011-11-01 13:13

Good composition and vertical frame. Wonderful idea with peoples near waves!I like reflection! Amazing landscape photography, beautiful place! Excellent POV, framing and composition, amazing reflections line and sepia tone!! Faultlessly light management,
adramad (45342) 2011-11-02 16:18
A great composition with an extreme beauty, is a splendid sunset, backlight of the figures gives a superb effect on the golden-green, very rarely seen in this type of composition.
Very original and beautiful work, congratulations.

marcan44 (6307) 2011-11-03 8:19
a nice compo and POV.
The men and their shadows and golden sunrise.
It seems they walk on water.
Gorgeous monochromatic effect.
jafadabret (56501) 2011-11-03 11:38
La photo semble toute simple mais je la trouve d'une très grande beauté. Les silhouettes des promeneurs donnent à ce paysage de la vie.
Le soleil et ses reflets sont superbes.
Angshu (56750) 2011-11-03 22:16
Not an ordinary picture at all!...all because of teh fine spacing between the 4 people & their reflection in the wet sand. The mono colour tone works well as well! Good work!
baddori (20121) 2011-11-04 0:02
Ho visto questa alba che Mario ha trovato interessante.
I colori con una dominante sul verde leggero.
Una scena come descrivi tu.
Un bel colpo frontale con riflesso sulla lente .
tedesse (25135) 2011-11-04 8:41
Wonderful capture,excellent POV and composition.
Lovely colours, fascinating reflections and splendid light.
delpeoples (57622) 2011-11-04 23:52
Namaskar dear Arjit
This is wonderful, I wish I had it in my Gallery. The composition, the sillhouettes and the light management are all of such high quality. The image is luminous. Congratulations, one of my favourites for a long time.
rodgerg (55767) 2011-11-05 1:42
Ordinary image..... but especially very nice image with a good choice of the vertical format. Good managment of light too with beautiful reflections. The silhouets of the men, well off-centred, give life and tooa particulary athmospher.
Have a nice WE,
besnard (56219) 2011-11-05 6:24
Un bon choix de format pour mettre en valeur ce superbe coucher de soleil. La présence des personnages et de leur ombre sont un plus dans la composition.
Bravo et bon week-end.
papagolf21 (100912) 2011-11-05 12:32
L'image est superbe et il est bien difficile de détacher son regard de ce lever de soleil.
Un cadrage parfaitement réalisé avec méthode.
Une très belle image.
prasun984 (5590) 2011-11-05 23:17
good early morning shot from Puri...like the framing by the walking people through the beach...also like their reflection in the wetly beach...
good exposure controlled with nice color contrast & sharpness...
Wish you Have a great sunday...
PaulVDV (28797) 2011-11-06 17:08
Yes, the picture has a nice perspective and is also composed very well.
I like the foreground very much with the lines in the wet sand, the reflected light and rising sun in it and the four long shadows of the people walking on one line.
Best regards, Paul
Alco (7361) 2011-11-06 21:32
Very nice composition.I like these men walking on the beach with their shadows.Nice reflection of the sun on the water and the beach.Very well done.
mauro61 (52855) 2011-11-08 0:44
un bel momento al tramonto ottimamente colto dal tuo scatto.
Mi piace la tonalità dell'immagine con la fila di persone sulla battigia,
pablominto (53746) 2011-11-10 23:56
A wonderful atmosphere as the sun rise over the ocean...!
The whole scene has this brass feeling, only broken by the contrast of the silhouetted men...
A well balanced composition, mood well conveyed!
ChrisJ (113203) 2011-11-11 21:30
Good interplay between light & shadow here. I would remove the green circle & sharpen the lower half of this image slightly. Superb graphism & symmetrical silhouettes. Tfs!
yanastallerova (20) 2011-11-20 19:08
I am not sure why, but I downloaded this image and then rotated it 180 degrees. Looking at it that way, it brought out details I had missed. It reads well both ways and is very symmetrical across the x axis.
It is a beautiful, timeless image. I particularly like
the fact that one person is a bit ahead of the other 3.
I feel the key to this photo, what takes it from ordinary to something higher, is the reflection of
the sun in the foreground. If the sand had been dry,
the image would still have been beautiful, but not like
this. And there is some little shell or pebble in the fg reflection that acts as a positive irritant to the eye.
I imagine you were barefoot when you took the photo with all that lovely wet sand squishing between your toes. If you were wearing shoes, please don't let me
know as it would ruin the romance.
Thank you for this lovely picture. And please feel no pressure to write a return crit. My main focus here is crit writing. Oh, and please let me know if TE does not count the two points I have given you. I have been having problems with that. If they don't give you the points, I will write them an email.
Have a very nice day!
