This photo I’ve taken on famous Fort Kochi beach on Monday afternoon, it was a Public Holiday day in India, the same day as the previous photo (distance between both places around 3km).
Typical snapshot of young local family enjoying the fresh sea breeze.
Fort Kochi Beach is regarded as one of the most beautiful places in Kerala. It is an ideal picnic spot for people, who come here either alone or in groups.
If you have become too bored with the hustle and bustle of the city life, then this beach is the ideal getaway for you.
Numerous cozy little restaurants and eating joints dotting the edges of the Fort Kochi beach provide the perfect option to those who want to grab a quick bite.
The beach is also quite famous for its remarkable Chinese fishing nets (see one of my previous photos).

A lovely family shot taken with excellent sharpness, colour and contrast. The seaweed in the FG provides another element of interest and I like the sea and no sky being the background.

Une belle scène de la vie quotidienne. La belle famille se promène sur la plage et profite pleinement de la belle journée et de l'air salin. Les couleurs sont joliment saturées.

a delightful daily life image, an interesting portrait of the family taking a pleasant walk along the shore. I like very much the movement of the people and that of the waves coming towards them. The sharpness of the foreground scene against the blurry backdrop is fine and the sense of depth is effective. I love the sunshine, the colours and the atmosphere they create. The people are interesting as individuals but they make a charming and tight group too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great Sunday,

a very eye-catching photo, so typical of India. Love the people's clothes, great contrast against the sea which looks very familiar to me:)

Blurry background gives good attention to this group. White and red clothes look good against blue waves. Lovely way to spend a public holiday.

Hello Miro, it's not the right place to bathe but for sure there are many good seafood available in Cochin as prawns or fishes, the water is muddled because of the presence of the backwaters carrying alluvions, nice view of a group, western style clothes for the guys and shalwar khameez for ladies, excellent daily life picture, Warm regards

A family outing & what better than a stroll along the waters edge taking in the wonderful fresh sea breeze.
I like very much the balance of colours - excellent composition & just seeing shots of families enjoying their time together is very rewarding.

fine,portrait photo,that conveys perfectly pleasant "family"mood.They seem to have a good time together on the beach.
I like also your wide-angle frame and good play with DOF,which separates them well from the sea in the BG.
Have a nice day

The dresses on women are very beautiful. People escape from hustle and bustle of the city to enjoy a relaxing day on beach. It's great. Thanks for sharing.

Likeable image, the sense of life in the slow lane on the beach, no hassle, no urgency in the family single line but respecting each other's personal space. And particularly the effective crop conveys their bond together. Hint of beach detail with the brilliant lighting has good interest making the subjects strikingly stand out. Excellent daily life shot, Congrats.

Interesting note about Kerala and really catching view of the walking people obviously enjoyng the fresh air
What I like the more is the contrast, well obtained, with the blurred colors of the sea at the back, as well of course, of the saries women wear
Good work, tfs

You're capturing well this scene by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the spectachle which young local family is enjoying the beautiful beach side. The colors is deep/bright and keep a good balance. And, the wave which rolls in to a beach draws out a good impact in this image as well as red color.

Thanks for your comments today, I hope you're able to make it back to Arizona some time...you'll always be welcomed! :)
Not sure how I missed this shot until now, I love it! Two things in particular here... the compressed perspective does wonders for bringing everything, and everyone together in a closer, more tight knit kind of way. Secondly, a family out for a walk together is simply endearing at every level of humanity. This may be a relatively innocuous moment, but one that has been realized into a most pleasing image and feeling of solidarity within the family unit.
Can't help but enjoy the scene playing out in front of you, and a wonderful idea to snap the shot and present us this warm moment in passing. Bright, colorful and sharp in detail, this turned out great!
