The village of My Tho (pronounced me toe) don't laugh. This cities richness is the Delta. Some of the riches people live near or from the river. It is the life of Vietnam southern region. One has to visit to understand this. The cities along river are filled with adventure, outdoor markets and scenes like this. This caught this man coming out of the water, after working on his boat. It was a instant in and Time Stopped for me. This man could be in his 80's. Strong body and the picture says it all.

Chuck, I took a liking to the shot right away. The composition and how it depicts daily life is great. I like the colors and textures of the boat as well. I did think that the light was a little strong off of the water and you picked up a little washed out look as a result. I tried a workshop to see if I could improve that aspect of it. Great catch and great results overall.
***Note edit: After looking at the ws I posted, I think I'd not crop as much as I did on the left and kept more of the boat. But you get the idea.

Nice shot, Chuck, I hope I can do that sort of thing at his age! I agree that the composition and storytelling are good here, but the workshop made a big improvement technically.
