This one I like even more than the previous because you have a better perspective and you can see from where the boat is coming. The subject is well isolated by means of contrast and DOF! Also it is well placed into one of the hotspots of the composition! Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend!
With Friendly Regards,

Lovely B/W capture on the river Li. I like the fuzzy background greatly contrasted with the sharp depiction of the man in the foreground and the righ contrast balance

Excellent photo, a beautiful daily life scene and a great portrait at the same time. Great choice of the horizontal framing, great composition! Beautiful "retro" feeling caused by the excellent choice of b&w and the grain. Congratulations!

I am so glad to come back to your gallery. These two last photos b/w I like very much. One color is enough for complete impression. It is not a question that you like your stay in China.

Wonderful tight framing of the rafter, whose tones contrast so well against the hazy background. His body expression was nicely captured and the short dof kept the spotlight on the subject. The BW choice was definetely good, but I wouldn’t mind loosing the grainy background. Both your BW river shots are awesome.

I like so much about this photo. The composition is perfect, and the man is caught in the right moment. Background is nicely blurred and the black and white tones give the feel well.
Thanks for sharing

a beautiful scene, captured with mastery, the use of the B&W, to give originality to the composition.
