A simple shot portraying those typical Laotian working canoes resting after hard days work on the bank of Nam Song river. Just had to make the most of this decent weather......

Bonjour Abmdsudi,

J'aime beaucoup la construction de cette image. Le cadrage vertical pour ce genre de sujet est tout simplement parfait. Les barques longues donnent de la profondeur à l'ensemble.

Hello Abmdsudi,

Good choice of a vertical format to emphasise the length of these wooden canoes. The yellow red silty sand contrasts well with the blue water and the boat's interior.. Tfs!

Witaj Abmdsudi!
Interesting Laotian working canoes enriched with engines, the technique has arrived here too ;)
Excellent POV and composition.
Wonderful light, colours and sharpness.
Very impressive picture!
Have a good weekend.

Hi Abmdsudi
Brilliant pov and composition with the canoes pointing towards the distant horizon. Simple but very effective. Peeling paint provides a welcome splash of vivid colour.
Best wishes

Hello Abmdsudi,
I like the composition here very much.
Two beautiful boats are beautifully shown.
Fine presentation.

Ciao Abmdsudi
un'immagine diretta, presa da un ottimo punto di vista che crea un'ottima prospettiva.
Può sembrare una foto semplice, ma lo studio della posizione e dell'inquadratura sono state fatte con cura.

Bonjour, cher Abmdsudi,
Ces barques allongées pourvues d'un moteur (eh oui, les temps changent quand même). Le confort intérieur s'installe avec ces sortes de fauteuils !
L'image est bien réalisée.

Hi Abmdsudi
Bon cadrage des deux longues barques, accentuant la profondeur, belle lumière, reflets, belle composition

Hello Abmdsudi

Well, I think what drew me to this image was the elongated perspective: I'm sure you were using the wider end of your zoom! The polarizer too has added a touch of natural-looking saturation. The overall effect of the composition is very pleasing.

impressive how narrow and long are these typical canoes. I liked the vertical mood of the composition and the visual result.

take care
