Nice job of capturing the feel for the place.  It can be tough to expose around large bodies of water. Can you post some more?

I recently spent a wonderful time in Southern India. I wonder how many CR's have been there?  Maybe we should start a thread.  Here's one of mine from the "backwaters"....

Nice locations, but can I ask what settings you used for the pictures?
I think you use OOC jpegs, don't you?
From what I know of Kerala, colors should look more saturated. Use a polarizer, maybe?
Cheers

On the other hand, the pictures are very beautiful. However, you can get more saturation out even in post processing. Kerala is such a beautiful place. I have tried made a humble effort at post processing using your jpeg.
