Belles captures (poisson et photo)avec le bon petit coup de lumière pour mettre en valeur le visage fier de l'homme et son trophée (que je n'arrive pas à identifier)

I wonder what type of fish it is. I love the simple composition so that the attention is firmly on the fisherman and the fish - great use of a fairly wide aperture. The light has picked out the man's face and the fish skin perfectly. A wonderful image - a really super catch!
Best wishes, Ann

Hello Andre. A proud fisherman. Thus, a large fish goes for the whole family. You've photographed in the ideal moment. Rgds, Wolfgang.

A nicely composed shot with great light. I like the expression on the guys face which really makes it for me. Great moment captured.

Salut cher Andre'
Now that's a whopper! It'd feed a family of 10 I reckon! What a decisive moment you captured and so perfectly timed. Love the colours and contrasts and the vertical format was a winning choice. I'm still salivating after your baklava food porn photo, maybe you should create a Theme: Andre's food Exploits!
Bonne amities et belle journee

A fine travel portrait. I particularly like the lighting on the subjects face as well as the play of light on the water. It is a perfectly composed shot with great sharpness and the sense of motion is well conveyed with the man leaning into the frame. Thanks

I see a big fish but I don't know the name.
You took these picture with the best lens of Canon.
Also the result is perfectly.
Sharpness and clarity are nice for look at.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

I like that the photo is clearly focused on the fisherman and his catch, leaving everything else blurred. The clarity is superior to the point where I can see the water dripping off the fish. I'm very curious how this man caught the fish, for I don't see any nets or fishing poles, and being he's only standing in a foot or two of water, I suspect he's taking the fish off a boat. Well, it really doesn't matter, because FISH IS FOR DINNER!!
Excellent presentation, with outstanding colors, light management and clarity. Loving your POV here, great job Andre!!

Really nice portrait, Andre - perfect moment of action, with a great expression in strong lighting. This very much feels like a moment in time.

Excellent action photo. You have captured this fishermen in very good (I believe late afternoon) light. Well composed in vertical format.

As with all great photographs, it is the lighting which really makes this one so very special.
The lovely low angle warm evening light illuminates the hard working fisherman and his catch beautifully and sets him off against a perfectly out of focus background. The light also catches the waves in the nearest foreground, adding to that magic.
Fabulous light, perfect exposure, gorgeous colours and, as always, exquisite sharpness and detail.
