Ah, that's a pleasant scene, a bit central, aside could gain dynamisme.
Very charming this little girl Tola.

Very cute photo taken here. I like how she is paddling and her back is to the camera. I do think you could improve this photo by putting her in the left of the frame, as well as zooming in a bit, as the greenery at the front is distracting.

Nice shot of a daily life scene. But it's quite amazing for us...

I prefer the heat and humidity displayed in this photo over the frozen wasteland of the American midwestern winters (your frozen bicycle seat photo) brrrrrr!! This is a very interesting shot of everyday life in this area. She is as natural in the water as very young kids in other parts of the world are when learning to ride a horse or to ski when they can barely walk. Having a girl so young drifitng in the currrent may seem strange to me but it is just another day in the life of this girl. Life is interesting. Very good capture!

Molto suggestiva questa immaggine! Mi ricorda un periodo passato a Bangkok, anche lì il fiume è un elemento di importanza vitale. Questa foto raccoglie momenti di tenerezza ed allo stesso tempo di drammaticità. E' lo specchio di una realtà difficile. Bravo.
A presto, Nino.

I am always so shocked by the little ones in the water, although I'm sure they must learn to swim at a very young age. Well taken with good colors and framing. TFS

Floods are normal in this part of the world, where also I'm living, it does not shock me anymore. Your picture is a good action shot with all the right ingredients, just one little thing I would recommend, the girl should be off center. Can be done by cropping some parts of the right side of the pix.
Keep it coming
Best regards Urs
