This family group, selling bananas in the outdoor market in Hue, enjoyed a laugh with obvious shared warmth.

I like this sepia tone. Though the sharpness of the picture is low, this is a good composition. The three different expressions on the faces of these people is nice. Good execution.

The bananas add such a wonderful texture in this image, Ken. The textures are enhanced because of your conversion to duotone. You might try simple b&w, though, instead of the sepia. I imagine the sepia to add a certain warmth, though.

Good shot of everyday life - the kind of thing I would love to do more of (except I'm no good at it!). You caught the right moment, with everyone relaxed and enjoying themselves. I like the bananas around them, which gives this an incredible texture, emphasized by the use of black & white. Great work Ken!

I just love the emotion of the moment you captured here! A shared moment so pure, so beautiful! The composition is also lovely especially with this sea of bananas. This is one of your best posts in my opinion.

Hi Ken. You've captured a happy moment very well here and the framing is excellent. I am wondering why you chose to present this in sepia though. Although it works quite well, I would have thought that the colour of the bananas would have given this a lot of impact. I'd guess that either there were too many colours and it looked cluttered, or you were trying to disguise the noise - or maybe a combination of both? Cheers . . . David
