The photo was shot during my visit to the Sunderbans, the largest delta in the world. It was around the monsoons, so sky was cloudy which worked as a reflector. The photo is clicked with my D3100 using Nikor 18-55 lens.

hello and welcome to epz.

this is a very interesting subject and id love to see it in life however its a shame that your metering has caused underexposure in the figures and clothing, unless the metering position was on spot and was toggled up to the top of frame or above the mass of people who are near enough a grey tone to have been rendered correctly in exposure value.

id be interested to know how much this is cropped from the original as taht may have had an effect on certain things.

if you shot raw you would have been able to correct this much better without causing other issues such as the halo effect on the horizon.

compositionally it needs the horizon leveling up and this is easy in most software packages, and a little more water under the boat would have helped together with space infront of the boat for it to visually move into.

very best regards, and i look forward to more of your uploads of this interesting area.

Hi Devraj,

A good capture that provides a window to India, well done. All good advice from above. With water shots you do need to keep them level or, as you can see, it does make the water look like it's running out of the image. Devraj, in my mod I have added to the bottom and left side along with a few colour adjustments but left the rest of image as you uploaded it. This should give you an idea of what your image would have looked like with a bit more space.

Take care

Martin
