What a scenery! The mountains are amazing, I have never seen anything like it. Extremely beautiful. You shot have wonderful colours and is very well composed. Beautiful reflections in the water and the fisherman is perfect placed in the picture.
Very, very well done.
richtersl (3546) 2004-07-30 7:55
I am speechless. This is exceptional. The misty mountains, fisherman's silhouette, and the reflections make for an amazing composition.
Seastro (176) 2004-07-30 8:00
Very cool, The mountains are so unreal !!! Well done

"Fishermen know 99 methods to catch fishes
.. if they know 100 they will never can fishes a long time "
The picture is excellent . Cristalline !
Verti (184) 2004-07-30 8:05
Lovely view of an extraordinary landscape (geographically speaking, it's called a Karst formation). The ripples on the water are gentle and give the feeling of peacefulness and tranquility.
alainh (33201) 2004-07-30 8:08
tres beau, tres doux.
extremement belle composition.

incredible picture, very poetic, light is just perfect.
fapmap (250) 2004-07-30 8:31
What a great composition: I love the reflection of the mountains in the water and how the man glides through it all. Colors are beautiful.
nainconnu (351) 2004-07-30 8:39
This landscape looks fantastic. And the reflexion in the water is beautiful. It seems so peaceful and relaxing. You've done a great job!
centurion (0) 2004-07-30 8:50
Very nice composed shot. It's look amazig, the water reflexion is wonderful.
mikhalych (1319) 2004-07-30 8:58
Yep. There is not much to say. The scenery is beautiful. Fisherman's figure is placed exactly in the place where it should be, breathtaking gradients of grey on distant mountains and great sky reflecting in calm water.
The only flaw I see is slightly tilted horizon.
smoothdude (266) 2004-07-30 8:59
Quite breathtaking. I like the little comment but would have prefered to hear more about the scene and what you were doing there..was it morning or afternoon? Lovely though, I just saved it as my desktop picture!
jackwp (519) 2004-07-30 9:49
Which way is up? Great capture and reflections.
umbrellaphotos (1901) 2004-07-30 10:55
fabulous picture. Interesting colors with the ominous hills in the background. Nice job.
WU-SIN (0) 2004-07-30 10:57
The transition of natures ambience is captured perfectly.Time and motion almost seem to have stopped,The under water plants add great depth to the large mountains.The emotion that this picture conveys is one of complete contemtpness.
Vagabond (5848) 2004-07-30 11:08
A picture for the TOP tens. A wonderful image ..
strangiato (10) 2004-07-30 12:26
Nice composition Howard. The reflections are beautiful and you were very lucky with the presence of the fisherman. It's a pity there is a lot of noise in the sky.
Guilin in Guizhou? I guess you mean Guangxi?
ninadev (5377) 2004-07-30 12:27
I'm sure everything was said about this picture, it's just as you said "so really nice"
miguel (1912) 2004-07-30 12:50

CoolDan (2516) 2004-07-30 19:42
Tout simplement magnifique, quel calme..
Les couleurs sont superbes, la réflexion magnifique. Nice shot Howard.

craigaio (22) 2004-07-31 16:19
wow! what an amazing picture! it looks almost surreal! it's perfect! well done!
cgrindahl (6113) 2004-07-31 19:23
Stunning Howard! The reflections surrounding the silhouetted man are very fine, as are the colors in the sky that appear in the water as well. I did a workshop simply to remove the noise in the sky which in my opinion distracts from an otherwise perfect image. See what you think.
Nina (4965) 2004-08-03 3:23
Wow, what scenery, what light and what a picture! Excellent work Howard!
christiane (668) 2004-08-03 16:32

PeterDF (421) 2004-09-28 22:28
This fisherman has to be one of the luckiest people in the world! Very beautifully captured!
rmatthews (945) 2004-09-30 17:36
Wow...Very nice. Very, very nice. I like the composition, the subject, the exposure. The water is perfect...almost like glass. Very well done.

zilinskyi (493) 2004-11-09 14:31
Great great picture. Can you give more details?
joyce (21) 2004-11-12 12:26
Absolutely magical! I love how the karsts are silhouetted, and the colours are surreal - almost like a painting. The fisherman adds extra interest.
I would have liked to hear more about the photo (time of day taken, etc.) - can you post more details?
I was looking for a photo like this on Trekearth & couldn't find it - the photo should have been filed under "Guangxi".
indoscoubi (68) 2004-11-22 10:42
Absolutely wonderful, nothing to add...
Have you changed anything with the colours?
Guenther (10915) 2004-11-22 10:50
This is absolutely incredible, the marvellous landscape with reflection, the gorgeous light with special clouds and the fisherman! WOW!

chappy77 (306) 2004-12-31 13:48
Just one of those perfect shots, great POV, nice colours, touching subject, peacefulness of the reflections. Oh I could go one, but instead I think I will go back to looking at the shot! Well done.
TomteTim (434) 2005-01-18 6:37
What a beautiful picture. One of the best I've seen so far on TE. Congratulations - it's perfect !
R_Chevalier (344) 2005-02-09 13:14
What an absolutely amazing shot. Lovely in every way, except perhaps for the clouds. But then again, that is the only barrier from perfection (in my humble opinion). Very well done.
Maru (0) 2005-02-09 13:20
Fantastic composition! everything seems to be in the right place specially you and your camera. The reflections are superb and the mountains in the background amazing.
To complete this incredible shot, the fisherman sailing..

caliane (610) 2005-06-08 23:37
Contratulations Howard! you did a great job! I'm really impressed with the beauty of this place. It seems a fairy place! I like the balance of the mountains on the backgorund, the shadow of the man in the middle and the reflex on the water.

jjcordier (79297) 2006-06-24 14:21
Wonderful photo! Perfect colours and reflections. A great shot
celinaconroy (717) 2006-07-06 16:19
Just seen this as a featured image on TE. You Have every right to say nothing....you don't need words to convey the stupendous view. It has to be one of the most outstandingly beautiful images on this website. Simply perfect in every way. There are so many but subtle elements here but I especially like the limited tones and the low light. Simply beautiful.
sergie (19) 2006-08-20 7:44
I can say nothing either. It is really nice! thanx
alastair (21) 2006-09-12 2:33
A truly outstanding image; without the fisherman to give a sense of scale, the picture would not have been nearly so good. Well done!
jrleborgne (1554) 2006-09-15 18:54
I just found your awesome photograph on TE, today.
It is really amazing. Nothing more to say.
thaprem (2558) 2006-09-28 8:18

Hi howard ,
Its just exceptional.Flawless and great travel shot.
Into my favs.
Dillinger (42) 2007-04-27 10:40
The symmetry of the reflection is very nice. And I like where the man in the boat in positioned in relation to hills in the background -- he fits nicely in the "dip" between the mountain shadows.
This is an absolutely gorgeous scene -- such tranquility! Thank you for sharing. I would very much like to visit this area of China in person some day.
PS -- Can you give us a little description of where this image was taken -- what river or lake is pictured?
jr_paterson (263) 2007-05-04 7:26
AMAZING PICTURE!! I love it? where is it exactly? Near Ha Long Bay? Really nice picture, very hard to fault, thanks for posting, cheers, James

danydan (312) 2009-06-07 22:41
Voilà une photo superbe, même si j'aurai vu le pecheur un peu plus décallé sur la droite car il est au milieu de la photo.
C'est une superbe image bravo
magalik (6103) 2009-08-15 2:15
This place is very amazing !!
Colours and reflections are very nice.

Beautiful composition. I like the soft colors and the square format.
Kind regards - Franco
FreewheelerBee (263) 2009-11-12 0:09
Lovely sky reflection in waters. This fisherman between Heaven and Earth just get into the landscape as an usual piece of it. It's not easy to control the fog remains in those mountains, but you did it well.
Thanks for sharing this on TE.
PainDivine69 (175) 2009-11-18 11:52
amazing picture - everything is fine: POV, sharpness, colours, composition. I like it!
oko (239) 2010-02-13 14:55
This is an amazing picture. Excellent composition and the sense of balance. What strikes me most is the third dimension. Looking at the photo one can virtually travel to the most distant mountains.
grigand (20003) 2010-06-26 5:26
Fantastic shot !!!!
photoray (13981) 2012-05-18 6:54
The sharp island peaks mirrored,classical net fisherman with paddle boat, and all in subdued lighting, emphasizing details and shadows.
