Compared to India or Burma, Vietnam seemed much less exotic. In fact, the exotic view, and typical Vietnamese, are the triangular hats. When I was a child, I wanted to have such a hat, but I hadn't. So I bought one for my granddaughter.

I used to make such hats for my school children, for their Christmas party. Children all over the world seem to yearn for such hats!
I like how you have immediately involved us with that bright, red-coated lady; we feel to be sharing the crossing with her. She is very strongly positioned in the frame yet does not obstruct the extended view of the village and people.
If not exotic, it is certainly colourful.
Have a good w/e,

bardzo urocza kompozycja z kobieta w tradycyjnym kapeluszu na pierwszym planie. Jej obecnosc bardzo wzmacnia obraz. Domki piekne a promenda ladnie udekorowana palmami. Ciekawy jest rowniez ten brazowy kolor wody.
Znakomity efekt HDR choc wiem ze to dzielo Twojego aparatu :) Kolorystyka super ciekawa: ten czerwony sweterek jeszcze wzbogaca palete barw. Pogoda rzeczywiscie niedopisala ale nawet tak bardzo to tutaj nie przeszkadza.
To moj przedostatni weekend w Irlandii :)

A person in red placed in the foreground increases the attracton of any picture. But the background of the riverside of Hoi An looks fine in its own right. 20 years ago this was just an empty, forgotten street. Then the tourists arrived and everything changed very quickly.
Have you done a lot of PP on this picture? The colours are fine but make me think of a scanned photo.

You can obviously find red shirts all over the world, and they are equally eye-catching wherever you find them. But in this picture I think that the triangular hat is more important to the picture. Also interesting architecture along the quay here! The green palms are also a very good part of the picture!

Sympat on a l'impression d'ętre sur le bateau, j'aime le rendu des couleurs, les palmiers qui garni le ciel, le chapeau de la dame car j'ai pratiquement le męme acheter en Thailande ( plus décorée)

Wonderful composition from an excellent POV and very nice framework, beautiful view from the boat, lovely light and colors, very good contrast and sharpness, TfS!
Have a nice weekend, Vasilis.

Seems like a painting! I like the woman in foreground, with the red blouse and the typical hat. The composition is perfect with her and then that line of typical houses. I keep feeling too sorry I got bad weather there.
jjcordier (67180) 2012-02-11 22:30
Je ne suis pas tout ŕ fait convaincu par le posttraitement de l'image mais j'en aime beaucoup la composition.
ChrisJ (91200) 2012-02-11 22:51
The bright red jacket that the woman is wearing stands out here. Good sharpness & diffused light. Nice repetition & graphism of the coconut palms. Well framed & composed with good reflections at right. Tfs!

Great colors of the town along that dirty river. Exotic atmosphere, I guess you had an interesting experience there.
Have a nice Sunday afternoon.

I'd love to see a picture of you wearing one of these hats!
A beautifully composed shot with the lady in the red pullover dominating the foreground. Lovely detail of the houses and restaurants along the water's edge even though the water doesn't look too clean!
Beautiful bright colurs, perfect exposure and lots and lots of details to look at and enjoy.

Nice picture here! I guess light was not the best but its her red dress which creates such a strong focal point. Have heard & seen pictures a lot of Hoi An, an UNESCO site from Vietnam.
The colours are a bit strange here, but I guess you have to get used to PS Elements :-)
How cold is it now...still bitingly chilly?

Hello Malgo, there is always something special with red in photographs it immediately attracts the eye, this one is no exception. Beautiful scene with the lady in red well placed in the frame, good DOF capturing not only the lady but also the people & houses in the BG. Nice souvenir for your granddaughter, I think she would have been happy.

Wspaniała kompozycja z kobietą, która napędza łódź i dno wsi z palmami.
Doskonała głębia i kontrast kolorów.

Ciao cara Itchy Feet
I would love to see a photo of you in one of these hats, and I am sure yolur grand daughter would have loved her present. A beautiful scene, with the lady dominating the image. Beautiful colours and light. I think you did really well in these difficult light conditions.
