[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A shot of Thu Bon River estuary, Hoi An, with soft glow of dawn illuminating the peaceful riverscape and as the sun rises so too does the colour and heat creating a striking starkness against the boats and all the fishing paraphernalia, which is a feature of this spot.

A privilege to capture from my early morning photo walk.

Setting: 29 mm, 1/40 sec, F4, ISO 200, 0518 hrs

Hello Abmdsudi,
Sublime lights and colours for this neatly constructed image. The boats are nicely dotted across the frame from bottom to top and have the effect of drawing the viewer in. Beautiful rendering of the ripples in the gentle waters of the estuary.

Hi Abmdsudi
you did well to get up early and capture this mood and atmosphere, well worth it indeed.

Love how the water has many different shades and colours from the lower fg to the upper bg. the cultural boats add another layer of interest as well. fine post, it turned out well.

Hello Abmdsudi,

A superb lakeside sunset with good sharpness and lovely reflections. The blue sampan and their covers contrast well with the warmer sunset tones at the top. Tfs!

Bonjour, cher Abmdsudi,
Des moments privilégiés, simples, mais d'une grande beauté.
Des images qui font plaisir à découvrir.

Hi Abmdsudi,the moment,with this special light,is a winner. Magnificent peaceful atmosphere from the estuary,well played with the dark silhouettes of the boats in backlight,perfect quality as usual. Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Hello Abmdsudi, I love the subtle changes of the colour across the water. Some of the small boats are silhouetted which is fine, and there is just enough light to see the FG boats more clearly.
Perfect title.
Regards Jean.

Hello Abmdsudi,
nice the view of this calmly and tranquil corner of the Thu Bon river estuary,with the golden reflections to cover the bigger section of it.The empty boats spread in this beautiful environment enhance even more the beauty of the scene.
