Hello Dear friends,

This is my first post of Dantewada in the state of Chhattishgarh and I captured this moment when they are busy for fishing. The day was cloudy, the fishermen grab fishes by their net at the river side of a village. I got an opportunity to shoot this moment.

with best wishes to all,

"Busy fishing" is an understatement to this precise moment when one guy threw the net, Swapan.
The white net in wonderful contrast to the green/brown water color.
Wish you a nice weekend,

Hello Swapan,
I agree that you timed this well. I like the fisherman's posture and how the net is flying above the muddy water. The well matching brown tones are attractive and you presented the photo nicely. The man to the left plays a minor role for the composition but creates a certain balance.

Hello Swapan
Beautiful action picture. Indeed, you captured it at the right moment with the net beautifully spread out. I also like the moody, earth colours of the scene.
Excellent work.
Have a good weekend, Groet Rob

Hi Swapan,perect timing and perfect camera settings too! The sharpness on the in flight net is fantastic despite the fast move and distance too. Magnificent composition showing us this daily life moment of the local fishermen,very well done! Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

Hello Swapan,

As your title suggests, the timing is really good.

hello to you swapan...yes,well timed..nice close crop,nicely composed too! tfs dale

Hello Swapan,

This is a perfectly timed shot!
The net, spread in the air, as the fisherman casts it into the water , could not have been better placed. It almost seems to move on the screen!
The second fisherman makes a secondary focal point and because of his stance, appears to be waiting in turn to cast his net in a similar way. It's like a story waiting to happen.
The limited colour palette adds to the atmosphere of the scene.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Hi S,
as you said with your title, perfect timing to take this fisherman, good dynamism and sharpness, tfs.

Hello Swapan,

Great shot - you caught this at the right moment with the fishing net spread out beautifully!


Hi Swapan
another wonderful photo, what can i say? its beautiful.
I'm sure you waited and waited for the man to throw his net, and it turned out pretty much as perfect as could be.
its great that the man kicked up his right leg as well, showing his body movements. cheers

Hello Swapan,
The title is spot-on. The two fishermen are well placed in the frame and I like how they are facing in opposite directions. Captured at exactly the right moment with the net spread out and in free fall. Very good technical realisation.

Hello dear Swapan

Perfect timing indeed to catch the throwing of the net. I like the fact that you include only the river (the other side not visible), but I'm not so convinced about the other person in the frame. I think the shot would have been even stronger without him.

All the best greetings


Bonjour Swapan,

C'est une très belle photo de la vie quotidienne dans cette partie du monde. Le mouvement du lancer du filet est parfaitement gelé et offre grâce et légèreté.

Hello Swapan,

A fantastic classic decisive moment shot. A second earlier or later would have meant missing the shot and fishing net being thrown. Good sharpness and I like the wide angled pov. Tfs!

Bravo et amitié

Hi Swapan
A work as old as mankind, really well seen and taken daily life - that off centre positioning of the figs and the net at the thirds give a more interesting composition. Great bit of action well timed shot of this intrepid fishermen at work. Excellent capture, Congrats.
Best regards

Hello Swapan,
Indeed the timing is excellent here, right when the fisherman cast his net into the water. The horizontal composition which also includes the other man on the far left is excellent too.

Hi Swapan,
Your title says the most important thoing on this picture. Indeed I like the position of wide open net. Good contrast between the boy throwing the net and the other one in static position. Colour of the muddy water is something different than what we usually see.

Hi Swapan
Quelle belle image de ces deux pêcheurs, dont vous avez capturer un moment dynamique de l'un d'eux, c'est très joli, la netteté est vraiment excellent, compliment
belle journée

Hello Swapankumarroy,
Indeed the picture is taken on the very best moment when the big fishing net is completely spread out and thrown into the water.
Not an easy way to fish, I think.
And with a good catch also a hard work to pull in the full net.
Wonderful daily life-picture.
Best regards, Paul

Hi NMASTE dear Swapan

Yes exactly you are right. This is the perfect timing. Not just one second before nor after. So well balanced framework image as such. So wonderful image at all.

All the best and have a good day! Takero

nice sense of movement here. I liked the framing contrasting the two fishermen in different poses, in contrast. perfect compo. TFS.



Bonjour, Swapan,
Cette composition relate la vie quotidienne naturellement ce qui donne à l'ensemble un aspect de vérité manifeste.
L'image est belle.

Hello Swapan,
It is indeed perfect timing to record the throwing of the net. The net looks so elegant spread out. Very well done!
PS. Do you prefer to be addressed as Swapan or Swapankumarroy?

Hello Swapan What a superb photo report about net fishing; the right-most young man in full motion, while the other getting ready to throw. Let's hope they never went fisning in the Gange that is so polluted!! Very nice action shot!
