The main market in Hue is alongside a tributary of the Perfume River. Each day several sampans pull up to the shoreline and the families living on them come ashore to buy and sell goods. At the end of the day they putt-putt off into the sunset to wherever they moor at night.
This particular family was highly enthusiastic about my taking their picture from the riverbank.

Hi Ken, very good shot both for subject and for technique. The man out of focus in the foreground gives importance to the children, and details and colours are well captured. Nice shot, again!

Fine use of DOF to concentrate attention to the kids.

Nice daily Life capture from VN. It's great to see such happy faces with limited possessions. Framing is very attractive.

A nice candid capture, Ken, and even though they know you are taking their photo it looks very unposed. Excellent focus on the girl with the bamboo pole and good use of DOF. I like the soft light too - the colours are very natural. Ceers . . . David

This is a great shot Ken - The expressions on the faces are very lively and make for a good connection with the viewer. Nice compostition too, with the rest of the boat and family behind, slightly out of focus. Excellent work!

Very peaceful dailylife shot, the girl's smile is very nice !
the color brown of water goes very well with that of the skin of the people. Thanks for sharing

that you capture on this picture is more than the smile of this little girl.

This is a great shot. The expressions on the two girls' faces are fantastic. The waving hand adds interesting movement. In a perfect world, the guy standing behind the older girl would not be there, perhaps (but the DOF works does its job well).
