After 1 hour boat drive from chong knheas, we arrived at Kompong phluk, a fishermen village.
This village is surrounded by mangrove forest, as you can see on the background of this fisherman

bethel (359) 2006-08-26 17:15
Great action shot. I love the colour of the orange net against the background colours. Lovely movement and nice POV.

keda (1253) 2006-08-26 18:50
it is really nice shot...
especially I like the net in air...
PS. I've seen your personal website... amazing trips and photos.... I added to my favourites
devimeuxbe (58557) 2006-08-26 18:54
This is a beautifull capture. FOr the movement of course, but also for the light.
Izobretenik (1268) 2006-08-26 20:26
That movie-like canvas is interesting and the picture is quite incredible. You managed to catch the best moment, the one when the fisherman tool is like hanged in the air. That's an amazing shot for those who would like to see documentary value and piece of art ideas mixed together.
CoolDan (2516) 2006-08-26 21:57
Très jolie photo bien cadrée. Le mouvement est bien saisi avec de petites goutelettes d'eau qui accompagnent le geste.
Marmou (396) 2006-08-26 22:49
Very well done ! not so easy to capture the very action in the right moment ! bright colours and well composed... TFS
siolaw (38292) 2006-08-26 23:53
Well captured fisherman in action, with full net in the frame, fine colors and sharpness..
Very well done
partha (14023) 2006-08-27 0:29
Excellent posture. Lot of Dynamism in it. I like the composition and the body language of the person.
jjcordier (79297) 2006-08-27 1:12
Excellente photo (couleurs, composition, impression de mouvement...)
Galeota (10338) 2006-08-27 2:46
Beautiful catch, Cessy. The green foliage in the background is a bit distracting (not enough contrast between the subject and the background), but the scene and the composition are bothe very nice.
DarkoG (8) 2006-08-27 3:19
Excellent, dynamic photo. Well composed with subdued light and limited colour range this photo looks impresive.
Leonie (8809) 2006-08-27 4:19
That's a nice image...beautifully composed and it looks somewhat different from the usual Cambodia pictures. Very nice!
Have a nice sunday, Léonie
gramma (3519) 2006-08-27 5:07
Very nice capture ! It's a very beautiful moment of life which you have stopped with succeed.
PixelTerror (0) 2006-08-27 5:18
Hi Cessy Jones ;-)
Is it the way to follow to the hidden treasure ?
You got again a very nice daily life scene here, the orange of this net against all the greens really flashes, very well framed as well.
I wish you a nice sunday (indoors as it seems...)
ndb1958 (9289) 2006-08-27 5:33
a great capture and you got the moment on the point. The fisherman's pose is wonderful. The net flying through the air on the way to the sea is perfect. Wonderful composition,
arturo (31) 2006-08-27 8:27
a dream "catch"..as all was already said about this image let me simply enjoy it...my congratulations...cheers, arturo
bibiweb (8) 2006-08-27 9:46
I hope this guy's catch is as good as yours! A great compo with the colourful net contrasting beautifully against the green background. The fisherman's attitude and the water drops in front of him make this a very dynamic shot.
Have e nice Sunday.
nwoehnl (122) 2006-08-27 12:40
Hi Cessy. Lovely photo here, indeed a bit reminiscent of a scene from an adventure movie (or maybe Hollywood has just spoiled our brains to think so, LOL). The fishing net makes a well-constrasting subject versus the forest of Mangroves, and the merry fisherman is a beautiful and essential inclusion to complete the storytelling aspect of the scene. Quite a good exposure, not the easiest one to that regard, it would seem.
AmiBe (6042) 2006-08-27 13:25
great, great shot ! I like the action, good timing !
I like the soft light filtered by trees.
The orange net contrasts well with the green.
jrj (34843) 2006-08-27 14:19
Absolute top work and a great ducomentary. Perfect catch with beatiful details - very good work
Tue (38012) 2006-08-27 15:36
A very good picture, taken with a great timing. The orange net looks great and stands out wonderfully against the background. You captured the fisherman in a nice pose too. Very good work!
cbrman (21675) 2006-08-28 1:35
Un moment décisif très bien capté ! La composition est parfaite et le cadrage bien travaillé.
tobourge (971) 2006-08-28 1:59
What a wonderful shot! So much movement and life!!!!
The fisher's attitude has been greatly captured. We can see on his face how hard it was to throw the net being in balance on his boat.
Perfect timing. Perfect shot!
Thanks for sharing
coco (30439) 2006-08-28 5:11
Interesting shot and moment.
Sure, a good shot. But is even more interesting how we can see the kind of life of this people.
pboehringer (770) 2006-08-28 10:38
Beatiful capture of this split of a second before the night dives into the water. The whole effort to get this perfect circle is documented in the fishermans movement. Isn't it amazing that he doesn't fell off his boat or that the boat doesn't turn around?
napdsp (744) 2006-08-28 19:11
Wonderful decisive capture. The exposure is so great that the color is so nice and deep. Not to mention, the composition is wonderful. TFS.
ChrisJ (114799) 2006-08-29 8:36
A superb decisive moment shot, with excellent sharpness, lighting & mood. Bagus sekali!
john_c (24666) 2006-08-29 10:43
What an impressive capture! The orange net contrasts so vividly with the prevailing hues of green and brown, and of course this was the decisive moment. You even caught the smiling expression of the fisherman, and all from a superb POV. Its a keeper, Cessy...
dolin (15619) 2006-08-29 11:44
Jolie prise, le tout figé au bon moment.
Un truc me plait bien ici, c'est ce côté sombre, je trouve que ca lui donne un certain charme....c'est sympa.
On dirait qu'il va se casse la gueule le pêcheur....LOL.
Bien vu, bien fait
getg3 (149) 2006-08-29 15:43
You brilliantly captured the movement of the net. Very attractive subject. Two thumbs up!
cam (9043) 2006-08-30 8:29
What can I say looking at a photo of high quality,both technically and as a daily life presentation,captured at such a decisive moment.
Always a pleasure to look at your creation.
tontonjc (6623) 2006-08-30 12:51
c'est beau et parfait.
Ces couleurs et ce mouvement sont au poil.
Un grand Bravo
vincz (19113) 2006-09-01 4:43
I love how and when you catched the movement in this picture. the coulours are also excellent, very soft and very beautiful. You has a beautiful light also. I was there very recently and know how hard it can be sometimes to find such good lights. Congratulations.
LeToun (0) 2006-09-01 13:07

Quentin (5280) 2006-10-12 3:53
Excellente photo!! La composition est au poil, le mouvement est
superbement capté et les couleurs très bien rendues. Bravo!
jafadabret (56501) 2006-10-12 13:25
Cette photo, Cessy, a beaucoup de charme et de grâce. Le pêcheur d'abord semble exécuter une danse pour jeter son filet. Le filet suspendu en l'air comme un nuage qui va fondre sur l'eau donne à la photo toute sa beauté. Du très beau travail !
Clairedelune (4923) 2006-10-14 13:31
Wow! lols! Just joking! But in fact, I could use it again! But that is your faul Cessy. Stop doing good photos and I will stop using that banished word. It's a promise! :D
I went on your profile page and found this gem. Again, rich colors. And an extremely well timed picture. The smile in the face of the fisherman is the icing on the cake.
I really have the impression to be there. With this man. Maybe you should publish your work!
postvikram (1199) 2006-10-18 5:18
Wow.. excellent frozen action Cessy.
Beautifully done work here. I love the deep contrasts the greens and the orange of the flying net.The expression in the face.. Mine too :) are all excellent.
The widescreen format frame makes this look like a movie shot. Pleasure is mine to bring this to 100 points.
TFS - Vikram
Aspirin (278) 2006-10-19 20:56

Great shot! The composition of this image is excellent. The color also work very well.
ngythanh (8462) 2007-01-20 10:26
Well timely shot and very informative note.
Cessy: I am trying to make a decision on my coming visit to Kompong Phluk next March. The info I have for overland from Siem Reab heading East on HW6 is about 15km. Could you please give me your advice on going by boat? Do you think I can just hire any boat from Chong Kneas Vietnamese floating village?
Thank you in advance for your help.
sadeik (3282) 2007-02-15 16:00
Ha, a brilliant photo absolutely brilliant action which has been caught with great clarity
sowhat (1004) 2007-03-28 12:34
beautiful picture, I almost feel the water droplets! The colors are warm and touching the composition very well balanced and we can feel the action in the air.
Thanks for sharing,

Hi Cessy, A great piece of timing to catch the net in flight &, the droplets of water as they spray up in front of the man, the colour is excellent &, the sharp focus is first class, superb light &, overall brilliantly composed, kind regards Wilson.
