After a long journey by boat through the Ganges delta I arrived in Dhaka in the middle of the night. Like the rest of the passengers, hundreds of them, I stayed on board until dawn. Just as I was getting off I saw these small boats, and the man standing in one of them. Although the crowd of passengers was pushing from behind, I had to stop and grab my camera to take this picture.
This was scanned from a Kodachrome slide.

Hi Gert, and a good thing you did too. capturing a scene of apparent chaos on the water around him, with the floating debris and other vessels. Might have been nice to see his expression, but it also works will in silouette, showing us the outline of his clothing and leaving is face to our imagination. cheers, Steve

This must be one of your best pictures on TE. A nearly magic light on both the darker foreground and the sunlit background. A perfect scan as well, a perfect sky without any traces of grains or other disturbances.

Väldigt fin bild, bra och genomtänkt komposition med stäven, styråran och skepparen själv stående upp. Vackert ljus i bakgrunden.
