Interesting frenetic Hoi An fish market with bit of strong back lighting in the early morning just after sunrise. This similar scene must have been repeated throughout the centuries here; everybody is doing something: selling, buying, waiting, bargaining etc full of the energy and so much going on.
A very captivating for visitors but an ordinary everyday scene for Vietnamese folk.

Une très jolie façon de jouer avec la lumière en contre-jour.

Nice close up photo, excellent tight crop. The people are in very good golden late afternoon light.
Very well done.

A fine management of the low sunlight here, illuminating the people and their triangular hats. A very peaceful and attractive view!

this is a scene very rich in details and one of those to explore for longer in order to discover more and more. The sea of people, each of them with different facial expression and outfits provides great subject for a photo. Well framed and composed with care to details.
I like the subtle light which adds quite special morning atmosphere to the picture.
Thanks for sharing

Je comprends très bien ce que tu as tenté de faire avec la lumière qui se reflète sur les chapeaux coniques typiques à cette région du monde.

The low sun makes the colours spectacular.
A lot people get an other colour through the sun beams.
Excellent contrast picture too.
Very well done, TFS.

A great textural and atmospheric photo. An aptly named picture with a fantastic quality of the early morning light. The composition is great as well, with a nice reversed 'V' and a fine backdrop of the tranquil golden waters.
Have a great day,

We don't see any fish from this POV, but this photo is entirely about the crowd of people in the faint light of sunrise, the glimpses of faces and the women's conical hats that are found in virtually every street of Vietnam. I think the men's soft hats are actually almost as typical. You have captured the vibrant but still quite gentle atmosphere very well.

Another wonderful scene of the bustle at a seaside market, Abmdsudi - one of your hallmarks, I think! Your title is blunt and descriptive here - it is the light and the color that is the real subject rather than the people themselves, though there is much to admire among them. For me it's the smallest detail in this one, the light through the hat of the woman just at center right, glowing red. Much else to enjoy here, but that is the detail that sticks out for me.

Now I know you don't like harsh bright light. Thanks for giving advice to my pictures. I've learned that the professional photographers take pictures only at two times: dawn and dusk.

this is a vibrant scene despite the shade, I like very much the sense of movement and how the mysterious people are purposefully moving in all directions. You have created an original and very interesting composition with full and very deep foreground and the luminous water used as contrasting backdrop and point of reference. I'm also fascinated by the different types of hats and most of all by the gentle way the warm light is touching the people. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

Magnificent and original composition, with this group of people, who put the Orientalist touch with those typical conical hats, I like the effect of light and shadow on the group.
An image very vital.
Good management of light and good sharpness.
Splendid image. My compliments.
All the best.

Sublime. I just love the aura of this image. Nice lighting, and the golden tones that seem to outline bodies are definitely a plus. Beautiful image. I like it a lot
eldancer1 (24647) 2014-03-30 7:23
I always believe that with proper and creative lighting any ordinary scene will look impressive and beautiful. You just confirm my theory. I like the way the early morning light traced the silhouette of those early commuters. Love the shape of those hats. Awesome colors. Well done, tfs.

You're capturing well this daily life by a good angle and tasteful tone, so it's interesting and impressive to see busy fish market in early morning where people go back and forth. It's effective for the light of sunrise projected to the river and people. Here, the smell of a life is felt.

very nice group portrait and as in most of your pictures masterfully mastered light.A light,which really build the whole,unique mood of this scene.Another thing is your very good way of using the depth to make this shot as expressive as possible.

Love the play of light on their hats and shoulders.
You have used the low strong morning light superbly.
Well done, nice one.
