This is very famous and so busy water market in Vietnam. Busy peak time is 5~7 am in the morning, so I stood by before down. As the sun rise, a lot of traders have come togther from all directions. I perceived thier vigor and vitality of thier life very much.

The bright lighting creates interesting silhouettes in a busy daily life scene, Takero. Lots to look at here - hopefully someday I'll see some of these floating markets for myself!

Hello Takero - The back lighting here has added so much atmosphere to the shot and your FL had condensed the distance front to back and accentuated the crowded busy scene. I get a great feeling of seeing this in person and can hear the sounds and smell the smells. Very attractive and atmospheric DL shot. have a lovely weekend Rosemary

Excellent action photo. You have very good eyes for excellent photo subject selection and composition. This one is a very good example with great viewpoint, light and all details around. Very well done.

A very interesting scene with a lot of action and movements. The light from behind creates nice contours of the people here. The background haze is also very appealing. A very pleasant scene!

Hello dear Takero,
I hope you're fine. Your point of view for this capture is excellent, you bring us right in the middle of the morning traffic in the river to observe the captivating choreography of the vendors in their canoes and feel the atmosphere. I love the closeness of this scene, the different perspectives of the canoes, the fact that all the vendors are visible, their serious expressions as they are out on business. The lighting is exquisite, with all the intensity and mildness of the early morning light. I also love the fading of the colours towards the distant background. A wonderful picture, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

You have seen and perfectly captured that vitality too. This is a wonderful image, and the people within seem quite serious in their endeavours, that comes across beautifully. Wonderful sense of everyday life, even though to my eyes, this is something I would never normally see. Excellent mixture for a classic image.
Best wishes from Ireland. (Blue sky today!!!)

This is a very fine daily life scene. Descriptive image, and it puts the viewer right in the middle of the action. The back lighting has perhaps something to do with the atmosphere it conveys. Not extremely sharp (one can suppose you were in a moving boat too!), but it's a very minor problem. The very good thing is that everybody contribute so well to the scene, nobody being unpleasantly partly masked by someone or something. It a very attractive image!
Have a nice week-end,

Hello dear Takero,
You have captured the early morning vitality in the floating marketplace. Anything that float appears to have been fashioned into a boat. There is a sense of the energy in all the people standing up in their boats. The back light is superb, much better than direct sunlight.

this is one of your best photos: very expressive, very picturesque! I like very much the haze in the distance and the golden shining of the boats :) This is a photo which has interesting details and gives us some food for thought!
warmest greetings from Moscow,

I like the action and light here, having just returned from Vietnam I have a fresh memory from this. It is such an excellent country to visit I must say.

I like this photo of the market traders. This is one of the most interesting your photos from Vietnam. Good presentation of the daily life. Perfect composition, TFS!
Greetings from the rainy Autumn Ural town!
