This photograph was taken in the early morning at the Himi fishing port facing the Toyama bay. The market of the fishing port was very active in landing of a fish and the auction of the fish which was able to take. The Himi fishing port is a third class fishing port in Toyama Prefecture. The fishing method here is characterized by the fixed net fishing method from ancient times. In the ocean space of this neighborhood, the continental shelf is developed to the 5-km offing, and the shallow sea spreads out. A small fishing boat comes out to the sea in the dead of night, a net is thrown, and a fish is captured. There can take mackerel well at this time. Beside mackerel, there were seen the fish the of a cuttlefish, a crab, etc. in the market. I walked along the inside of a fishing port as not interfering with their work. Many sea gulls were flying to the surroundings of a fishing port. A fish is landed and the boxing after classifying can be seen to the front. It is ice for freezing and saving a fish that is contained in a big box. Back, the appearance of the auction of fishes is visible vacantly.

I like this photo which shows us many interesting details from the hectic work going on when landing th fish and auctioning it early in the morning. But the light was very difficult, streaming into the building through the large openings. I made a workshop to see if I could do some adjustments. I hope you won't mind. Actually in your own workshop taken outside the conditions were better, which gave you a more evenly exposed photo.

The scene is very interesting but I note an excessive use of the sharp filter and the lights are too strong
You should under expose with a speed of 1/30 s
It's possible to correct in PP underexposed picture than overexposed picture.

It' so luminous, I this is the kind of composition that really makes the picture, clean and neat. Richness in colors and fine contrast of the warm yellow are blue at golden hour. A well spotted opportunity recording the day-to-day activity at this fishery port. Good daily life shot Well done

Vibrant scenery on the fish market, Mikio.
Motion of the workers well collected, and there is fine sharp details shown.
A bit too strong light prevailed, but not to disturb much looking at the subject.
