This is the extensively shown floating market of Damnoen Saduak in Ratchaburi province. I am sure you have seen this photo here in TE, or in some Thai tourist brochures. This POV is not unique, but like Taj Mahal or Eiffel Tower or Angkor Wat, etc, this photo should be in one’s gallery. A cliché, so be it. I don’t bring anything stunning, but I must post it. :-)
The cable was unavoidable, cloning was out of the question, too much work.

It is rather rare spectacle, also coloured, such an alive and ordered. It is a beautiful capture of the popular and so tourist life. Good work.
Have a nice day

what a very nice shot of all these busy people at this spectacular floating market. The high pov is perfectly chosen and give us an excellent perspective on the scene. Very nice work, my friend and great technical quality, especially being a scanned one.
Tfs and best wishes.

Muy buena perspectiva, has capturado muy bien la actividad intensa del lugar. La gente practicamente pierde su individualidad y se vuelve un elemento grafico en la foto.
Muy bien hecho

WOW speaking of crowded! Crowded everywhere, along the alley and in the water. Just as a thought, not saying that it is bad, I wonder what impression you would have gotten with a tripod and a powerful ND filter to make a 5-10 seconds exposure to get the blurr all of this movement.

Unreal how people can live and shop in this place. The image is interesting because of the cultural element portrayed, the way of life. Good angle and perspective of this moment and place. The cable is fine where it is and I didn't notice it too much until I read the note. Colours look great but sharpness could be improved a bit. Thanks Jorge.

What a traffic!
I can't thought a market like this on the Rhine here in Germany:))
A beautiful and interesting image,
trekks (14348) 2008-02-28 15:10
Very busy market and your shot shows so many activities here. It is never easy to shoot a market and I find it eye dazzling on how to choose a subject.
danos (74518) 2008-02-29 5:24
really i never seen a scene like this one.Excellent daily snapshot with all these people to be mix in the canal.The venders and the tourists make a colourful intermixture that is known in these Asian countries.Never mind for the cable,if i did not read it i will not see it.Well done Jorge.
Have a nice weekend,danos

I always like such daily life scenes, and this one is really good! Very nice colorful scene you captured in the exactly right moment. Your picture shows so many diffeent actions at the same time, that you can really watch it for a long time and always discover new things! Great!

Excellent floating market,
wonderful perspective and presentation.
U're right that this is a kind of photo that is typical for Thailand.
A great one, Agnieszka
emka (59010) 2008-03-04 16:19
Beautiful shot of the famous market. It is such a wonderful place and here very crowdy. I see you took it not from the boat but probably from the bridge. Thanks for sharing
giorgimer (34518) 2008-03-08 0:38
extraordinary view! Incredible for our "western eyes"! Very well taken!
dvlazar (6644) 2008-03-08 17:26

Like you write in your note, it's irresistible posting a shot of this place and I only didn't do it yet because the quality of my scans and of the shots proper are severally inferior to this one. All that colourful crowd, a mix of vegetable 'genuine' vendors, tourist oriented vendors and tourists themselves make a fantastic pattern. I don't remember having seen a view with so much crowd, so I guess that you achieved some originality.
The quality of the scan not perfect, but is very reasonable and let us enjoy the image very nicely. As a matter of fact, I find the exposure and colours very well balanced for a scan.

qué buen foto!! es una locura de colores y formas. Me enacanta. Se siente el ruido que hay y el ambiente como de feria. Te felicito por la foto.
Muchos saludos a ti y a tus mujeres
Colombiana (2931) 2009-03-22 8:39
Me encanta la congestion y el tumulto de colores y objetos que se pueden apreciar en este mercado flotante; lo del cable, de verdad que no me molesta para nada, ademas es parte de la composicion. Buenisima foto! Me imagino que estabas parado en un puente?
Saludos desde Miami!
