Cái Bè is a river-land mixed town in Mekong Delta, in Southern Vietnam. Along the river, there are docks that handle passengers and goods, and a floating market.
During and after the rainy season, the Mekong River turns completely brown due to the alluvion the rain storms bring.
Cropped, increased sharpness, saturation, applied Neat Image and gradual toning.

Excellent pov en plongée et bel effet graphique des mains de cet homme tenant son chapeau
Bon contraste colorimétrique du brun des eaux avec le bleu du ciel et du bateau

Very nice view with a great use of the wide angle to share the feeling of space. The effect is increased by the efficient use of the foreground. We can feel to be the person looking to this landscape.
Moreover there is this colors game between the boat and the river.

I like the vertical format which allows the viewer to be led to the horizon by the shape of the boat. And the candid moment of holding on one's hat (strong winds?)

Have a great week - Brian

What can I say? Magnificent picture with this vertical format, the contrast of the blue boat and the brown water and this sky which call us far. A nice perspective, a beautiful colored composition and technicaly superb.

nice symmetry in your image, i like the use of wide angle here, really makes the horizon and the river look endless!
the posture of the person makes the extra for the image, very well done!
Best regards, F.

An excellent POV and symmetry. The hands holding the hat are an interesting part of the composition. Good colours and exposure. Very well seen and taken.

This is awesome Erdem!
This photo could be featured on a tourism brochure, with perfect space for the title... Great capture of this funny moment, with good symmetry, attractive colours and a communicating sense of outdoor.

Hello dear Erdem,
This sight was very familiar to me during the years I lived down there in the Mekong Delta, so it makes me nostalgic. I've never actually been to Cai Be, but
those muddy waters, that blue sky, the blue/red pattern of the boat...it's all so characteristic. The woman holding her hat adds a touch of humour here.
Good work & tfs!

Gotta give this one a full smiley. Great shot. I'm not too partial to all the wide angle distortion in the clouds and sky, but color and compostion are excellent. Nice work.

Great POV that gives really good perspective. Wonderful color of deep coffee brown river and the pale blue boat. Vertical format allow you the depth and to also include the sky.

this shot is a superb composition, with nice contrasted colors and tones, horizon composition.
All the best,

I usually like to remain outside a picture (or a movie) but in your case I like very much to be dragged into this photo, I am sitting on the boat and holding my hat and before me the only the river and the sky. what a great sense of freedom this picture gives!
I like very much the perspective from above, it gives the composition a more interesting twist than if you had shot from a level perspective.
