[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A new day just began at this fish market located out of town, showing its hustle and bustle on the harbour quay along Kandal river. This is the main reason to get up early as I stood for a while in the dark waiting for daybreak. I could only see shadowy figures and arrival of fishing boats on the waterway and all was revealed when the sun rose.

So much going on as the boats unloaded the catch of the night and sold immediately by the fishermens' wives on the pavement. As depicted, the Cambodian women work really hard because there is no other way to put food on the table. This activity ends at around nine in the morning, and the next day they start all over again.

Who needs a shop when you know where to get some fresh fish off the boat?

Ciao Abmdsudi, nice market scene, excellent perspective, good clarity, splendid light and wonderful colors very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Abmdsudi
A beautiful photo in composition and also in terms of subject. Three dominating shapes: The colourful row of people at the left side, the long row round, steel scales with fish and on the right side the asphalt. All flatter curls to the right upper corner of the photo and form a beautiful composition.
Excellent work
Have a good weekend, groet Rob

Bonjour, cher Abmdsudi,
Belle prise de vue, nous avons l'impression d'être sur place.
J'aime les couleurs saturées qui donnent plus de force à la composition.

Hello Abmdsudi

These days its difficult to imagine that back in 1975 when madman Pol Pot had an iron grip on power, many people literally starved to death. Good to see those days are gone. Tfs!

Hi Abmdsudi
I know this is street photography, and people will often be in the way - I understand that - but personally I would still prefer the photo without this woman walking directly infront of your shot. Luckily she isn't intruding on the main subject, the large pots of fresh fish, and the lineup. It must be a photographers dream here, no wonder you were up early to captured this. There must have been a smell of fish too haha. excellent cultural scene of the daily life.

Ciao Abmdsudi
la forza di queste donne è incredibile, la luce dell'alba sta illuminando la parte superiore della foto, ma queste donne sembrano essere qui da molto tempo.
Hai dovuto svegliarti molto presto, ma ne è valsa la pena.
