Local men returning back after selling goods on the street market in Fort Cochin.
If you have followed my past notes from Kerala, you could read about the water abundance in this green state. Local people spend lot of life time on water.
In the same way as these two men reaching the end of busy day, I am also reaching the end point of my Kerala journey.
This is the second last photo from this fabulous trip in "God's own Country".

Un cadrage très différent , mais aussi très original.On dirait une photo qui raconte l'histoire de nos coureurs des bois.J'aime beaucoup les couleurs des chemises des hommes.

You're capturing well this daily life by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interestinga nd impressive to see the spectacle in which two man are returning their hometown after selling goods by boat. One man is gazing forward, and the other is rowing the boat. It's also good at color contrast with calm river. And, the reflection projected to the river draws out a good atmosphere.

Nice daily life capture. I like the tight crop to keep just these 2 boatmen and their boat. The colourful attire of the subjects presents contrast with the dull surroundings. This must be the backwaters of Kerala?
Thanks for sharing.

This is a nice photo, although it could have been from many other places than just Kerala. The boat is well placed and the men's clothes add fine colours.
Recently I scanned some photos from Kerala, including from the backwaters, taken 25 years ago. I guess I will post some of them later.

Very nice documentation of the daily life of people. I like your pov and it has good dof with nice details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Very nice picture with this typical canoe, I like the POV situating it at an angle of the image, with the remarkable colors of the shirts of the men, while the surface of the water, looking like silver, took the rest of the surface image, which adds a touch of calm and relaxation.
Very good management of the brightness and sharpness.
Well done. I like.
Enjoy a good evening.

A beautiful minimal composition here with great colors in a panoramic frame.
We also enjoyed your Kerala journey.

This is a simple but very pleasant photo. The colors of the men's clothes make a nice contrast to the bluish grey waters surrounding them.

It was great having this picture along side yesterday! :) A wonderfully minimalistic scene taking place, but there's a great deal of atmosphere and even some charm that goes along with this every day life moment.
The colors contained within these gentleman's clothing and the few others in the boat are a terrific, concentrated section of the framing that simply bursts alive in comparison to the remainder of the composition. The subdued reflective colors are just the right touch to break apart the the more prominent greyish tones. Love the final result here, great shot!

Good evening Miro,
Well placed the two men on their boat, rowing forwards in great dynamic scvale over picture space.

Fine clear shot.

Nice capture from Fort Cochi with good pov and perfect layout.
Simple but beautıful.
TFS and have a nice weekend

The letter box format forces viewers to really concentrate better on the image with a good eye for composition, but I like the feeling of space in this shot as well. A very well observed with vivid colours and detail throughout. The exposure is pleasant and the light is well controlled, indeed a stand out shot and sharp too, Well done, tfs

Respectele mele, domnule
O zi bună!

Water and color given by the clothes of the returning men, not much more but well presented
Charming daily life scene
Just have a look at your Christmas Photos, great ones, like more the horses on the snow

I like this minimalistic composition and the perspective and colours that stand out against the homogeneous tones and texture of the backdrop. The colours bring a very nice warmth in this cold, silvery environment. I think it would be nice to have a little more space above and ahead the fishermen but a different arrangement probably wasn't possible. Sharpness and lighting are excellent. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
jmdias (58149) 2013-12-05 4:50
the image has a perfect framing, the position of the personages are exact. Their clothes has interesting details, the colors of them created a marvelous contrast with the greyish mood of the compo. a beautiful image, very well build. TFS.

Salut cher Miro
A beautiful tranquil scene and I like where you have positioned the canoeists to the left of the frame. The silvery water is very pretty, as are the lovely reflections. nice work.
