A few months ago, I've posted a photo of this same place. As I like this place a lot, here's another one! This photo was taken in Inle Lake. When we got to this place, several pirogues came with women wanting to sell handicrafts. In a few seconds,a kind of a little floating market was formed there.
Here it's possible to see only one, but there were many around and locals really insist on selling their goods, from the moment we arrive till the moment we leave - they depend a lot on that!

Beautiful composition, the image captured by a very impressive building. It is seen reflected in water. Also very interesting sky. Nicely it animates the boat with traditional costumes in the lower right corner.

A very clear, sharp and luminous shot
i just regret that you did not wait for a few seconds so as to get rid of the little part of black bank at the right bottom corner
Nonetheless a beautiful image
Have a nice WE

When I look at this I think about the elfic land in the lord of the rings... definitely a special place shining with highlights, the little boat at the botton right is great to animate this superb view
Have a nice sunday under a fine blue sky not spoiled by icelandic ashes... JY

Impressive shot of an impressive place. The right corner is very, very unfortunate, however. Also your note makes it honestly clear that this place is not paradise, the gap between the haves and the have-nots is just too confronational. But thanks for sharing this interesting shot!

Simplesmente mágico, estou impressionado, parabéns!

Great shot indeed !
The victory of framing and color arrangement!
Perfect and well considered stable composition / framework, light control, vivid color and quite sharp/clear description in the detail.
You did a great job indeed!
Thanks for sharing and have a good Sunday !

I remember this place very well,and you can find these pagodas in my gallery too.
Good composition with the diagonal boat in the foreground.
The clouds work well for the composition.

This place looks like it's not real, looks like coming out of a fairy tale! Fantastic place and fantastic photo! Great composition and framing, perfect light management, beautiful colours and excellent definition! Congratulations!

Um postcard fantástico deste lugar mítico. Obrigado por nos mostrares um lugar tão belo e tão distante que dificilmente algum dia visitarei.
andre_luizs (599) 2010-04-25 11:13
Templos belíssimos estes que tu fotografaste, eles por si só já justificariam a foto, a inclusão das mulheres no barco só vem a acrescentar à composição.
celmaleite (4974) 2010-04-29 12:08
O lugar, sem dúvida alguma, é maravilhoso. Estou encantada com a arquitetura, as cores e o lindo céu azul. Interessante a inclusão do barquinho com as duas mulheres. Parabéns, linda imagem!
riclopes (35577) 2010-05-04 3:38
Olá Anabela, que lugar tão bonito, a vista lá atrás parece de sonho e aquele céu nuvens também embeleza. Bem enquadrado com a piroga a entrar na diagonal do canto.

The clarity of this image is excellent. Well composed with good saturation of colour and sharpness. The view is peaceful and beautiful

Amazing boat-market, amzing architecture. Excellent weather. Fine colors.
Greetings from Warszawa!

I found Burma long ago one of the most beautiful countries in the world, mainly because of the nice people. These pagodas are also fantastic and it's a generally very appealing picture with very good light and sharpness. It is just a little bit unfortunate that we can't see the whole boat, because it has been cut off by something in the corner. However there was very little you could do about that.
tober (8797) 2010-05-06 3:53
Hello Ana, the use of light and bright colours are fantastic. The pagodas with the local people in it, muddy river and the impressive structures by the river, blue sky, everything is wonderful. Best regards, Tolga

A pleasant and picturesque scene full of exotic but still characteristic architecture!
The ladies in the boat selling this and that add life to the scene...
Pin sharp details and a well balanced composition!
Urs (14082) 2010-05-08 7:24
Excellent POV, vibrant color hues and contrast with high sharpness. What a perfect shot. Reflection are superb. Well done. Thanks for your critique of my fishery port from Yan. I try to go to places not well known to not even locals. Most of the time there is no real road map, just my instinct tell me that I should risk and go there to have a look.
kevinos (7397) 2010-05-13 7:29
This is a magical Burmese landscape Ana. So far from your native Portugal, but with many of the qualities of your home images. The white and blue f the top half goes so well with the warm tones of the bottom and the life and the architeture are shown off so well here. Regards Kevin
mkamionka (30694) 2010-05-14 4:48
wow this looks like a view from a fairy tale.
Probably the best possible POV in the area because you have not only the water aspect but also the floating market as you say.
The architecture is splendid as is the light.
It is pleasure to look at it,
paololg (31448) 2010-05-15 14:38
Ciao dear Ana,
it is really a pleasure to see another photo of your trip to the Burma, because this landscape is simply fantastic. The beauty of this image is emphasized by the perfect clarity and by the excellent management of the light. Compliments, dear friend, this is one of the most beautiful photos of your gallery!
Ciao, have a nice Sunday!
macjake (57062) 2010-05-15 22:29
I can see why you wanted to post another shot from this same spot.
it would be hard to take the camera out of anyone's hands here!
love the buildings, and of course, sadly - it has the typical brown south asian water :(
the boaters add a warm human touch!
Dyerco (10185) 2010-05-22 16:20
Myanmar is a place I would like to visit. A nice composition with just the one boat and two ladies with a very typical backdrop.
mauro61 (52623) 2010-05-23 16:48
davvero belle queste architetture di un bianco splendente.
Mi piace l'inclusione della barca che dà vita allo scatto.
francio64 (38276) 2010-05-25 4:58
gran bel posto ottimamente rappresentato in questo tuo scatto.
La luce è perfetta, esaltando la resa cromatica.
Belli i vari riflessi sul fiume il cui inserimento dà una buona profondità alla scena.
L'imbarcazione invece dà movimento e dinamicità alla scena.
Immagine ben vista!

jmdias (56043) 2010-06-16 18:27
parece uma vista cenográfica com aqueles templos brancos e cheios de detalhes ao fundo e a canoa com as vendedoras. tudo muito bem iluminado e enquadrado. parabéns

Hello Ana, A very beautiful image from what must have been an adventure for you, so different to Europe in so many ways. Interesting architecture, well captured with the boat & people complimenting it, impressive colour,clarity & of course the sky. I hear these sellers can be very persistent.
josepmarin (57801) 2010-06-22 1:26
interesante nota sobre este mercado flotante que se forma al llegar los turistas. En la foto has captado sólo una piragua, pero me imagino el lugar lleno de ellas.
La arquitectura que llena gran parte de tu encuadre es magnífica, muy estética y elegante, y se destaca sobre un cielo azul bellamente decorado con las nubes blancas.
Gran luz y colores fantásticos, es una composición muy bonita y bien realizada.
xuaxo (6846) 2010-07-02 6:58
Extraordinária luz para um lugar extraordinário. Muito bonito. Melhor só com água azulinha.
É pena a ponta da piroga estar cortada.
BluSimo (9392) 2010-07-17 13:06
This place is fascinating, the white pagodas is an optimal background for this scene, that you have well described in your text, and that it is not now difficult to imagine. very beautiful colors of clouds and water. the two women on the piroga are an element of great fascination. compliments for this good photo-job.
have a nice evening, ciao
