A typical market scene, in the central coast town of Nha Trang, in Vietnam. I reduced contrast 5% here, due to the harsh, tropical sunlight. Apples, oranges, & limes are shown in the foreground. These are grown locally in Vietnamese hill towns, like Dalat & Sapa. (1,000 metres elevation).
I've forgotten what the conical hats are called.

A colourful and well composed market scene, Chris. Yes, it needed a reduction in contrast - perhaps even a little more, but that may have washed out your colours. The hat is called a 'non la'. Cheers . . . David

A daily life picture in this typical market very well captured and composed. You handled well the tropical sunlight and brighty day. Good colors, fine sharpness, angle of view, motion and people expressions capture and many nice details.
Good work so well composed. My congratulations and have a happy new year.

Yes it's very typical ! All markets in South Asia look like this. But with these conical hats, it no more possible to confuse ! We are in Vietnam...

Bonjour mon ami Chris,
Ici, point besoin de tréteaux, d'étales ou de présentoirs, c'est à même le sol que l'on présente les marchandises, ainsi les acheteurs ont une vue plongeante sur les fruits et légumes !
Merci de nous présenter ces scènes typiques de Nha Trang.

Coloured Market, active too by these ladies amongst the fruits and the flowers. A very nice scene by the stong right side of the composition also interesting by the framing that shows the context.
I like it

Wow! So many things going on here. Markets are always good subjects for the lenses. I like the point of view, giving an interesting angle of an Asian market. Personally I would increased the luminance a little bite. Very nice job, Gabriel

Really this is the festival of colors. I like the composition very much. Bright and very sharp.

Great shot of the market! This communicates the colour and atmosphere very well. I like the vibrant colours and the sense of life this has. Well done Chris!

This is a very good and unusual pic. I have never seen market that dont have tables and such things. After seeing this photo I say - Who needs them -
Good low angle for the photo. The colors and tones are also nice.
All the best for 2006, and Seasons Greetings!

Interesting scene from the market, Chris, with a tempting display of the colorful fruits and produce. The merchants' hats add a nice graphical aspect.

Hi Chris. I'm glad you reduced the contrast as much as you did but I might still be tempted to drop the brightness of the highlights even more. Despite the harsh light the colors don't seem washed out. Sorry I don't know what the hats are called either. tfs Chris!
