2 women row their boats in the standing position popular in Vietnam - I guess it gives a better view, especially in a busy place like a floating market. They also have a motor for when they are in more open spaces. The woman in front has bought a supply of pineapples and bags of something unidentifiable. I think the one behind has cabbages.
The market is at its liveliest early in the morning and can only be properly viewed from a small boat.

Hello Ian - Vietnam is one place in SE Asia I haven't yet visited. Your scene reminds me of Cambodia and Thailand where so much life happens on water. This is full of interest. I am impressed by the manner in which the women propel their craft. The one in the FG has been cleverly captured with one oar placed on the diagonal and crossing with the other on the third. An excellent DL shot with a very credible ambience. Warm regards Rosemary

Picture of a very beautiful image with proper composition is a very good sign.

This a very fine daily life shot with a strong expression. The POV is not a usual one (from the sea to the land) but it surely gives much more idea about daily life of these people. The idea of including parallel boats in the frame is very fine too and yields a very strong composition. I also liked the diverse tones of natural colors, sharpness, clarity and depth. Allover those make this a subtle work. Thanks for sharing. Have a nice Sunday.
