[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In the year 2009 I've been the first time on Phu Quoc Island. At the stunning beach of Bai Khem we stopped over to enjoy this lonely beach. It was the perfect place to watch the locals while preparing the boats for the fishing. The old man on the picture was a nice contrast, as he prepared his tools very carefully and in a traditional way. However he had a bag made of plastic, a small reminder that modern life came also to this corner of the island.

Hi Manu, An interesting perspective to show the place. Nice composition and nice natural light with fresh smell of the sea water. The mountains give depth to the composition and the boat is the treat and the man is the life and also the waves are the bonus. Great presentation of this calm beach with lot of activities. Thank for sharing

Hi Manu,
Your composition is very serene and natural. I like how you captured a daily life activity of the locals in this place. Beautiful image. TFS!

Kind regards,
