Now, this is a different one from Halong Bay.
Photographers have been mesmerizing us wih the unusual land shapes and authentic boats, but this one from the shore with people actually makes me say that "there is also a shore line and people living in Halong Bay" :)
Their faces being completeley hidden is quite interesting. As if it were a desert where they needed to protect their eyes and noses...

Hello Patrick - This is super, a shot packed with the icons of Vietnam, all familiar and yet seldom seen together in one image. Bicycles, conical hats, fishing junks and limestone karsts combine to create 'Vietnam, the condensed version' A fine shot and such a wonderful view of life on Ha Long Bay. Warm regards Rosemary

Bonjour Patrick. They remind me of perched colourful birds. I have a theory that this way of sitting massages the intestines and that constipation is virtually unknown in parts of Asia where benches and chairs are still unfamiliar.The image is rich in detail, creating an alluring impression of Vietnam. Great depth and well managed light. Amicalement. Klaudio.

It is a very interesting snap. Why they are covering their face while selling? Boats and mountains created a nice background perfecting the foreground.
Thank you very much for sharing
Let us share our world to each other.

Interesting the activity in the foreground and beautiful the boats and karst landscape in the background. The whole image catches the eye and keeps it there to explore all the detail in such excellent exposure and composition. Well seen and very well done. Best wishes.

Excellent frame from this lovely place.
You caught everything in one shot! The daily life of the locals, some of the millions of bicycles, the sea, the boats and the spectacular islands.
Very well done,

Je suis toujours étonné de voir la position accroupie que les femmes prennent en Asie. pour moi, il n'y a rien de moins confortable. Tu as su saisir un très beau moment et surtout avec un superbe arrière plan.

This is among the best Halong pictures I have seen. You managed a remarkable combination of spectacular rocks, traditional boats and characteristically dressed people. You handled the light very well on this overcast day, which produced very attractively mild colours.

complimenti per questa bella foto che ritrae la vita naturalòe di questo popolo, ben diversa da quella dei depliants turistici.
Non solo un bel soggetto, ma uno sfondo di tutto rispetto ed una natura incantata che invita ad una visista a questo bel paese.
Ciao e buona serata

very nice the view of this section of the fish market with the two ventors to sell their fishes at the edge of the road and the lot of fishing boats to cover the bay.The backdrop Mts complete perfect the whole scene.

Wow! Vietnam à son meilleur!
De nombreux éléments typiques mis dans une excellente composition.

Great capture! I love the composition which has real depth but the colourful FG provided by these two fish sellers is great! I love it!

This is extremely interesting and original post of this daily life scene. Strange that these people fully covered their faces. Do you know what was the purpose of that? Anyway, it addes something special to the view. Very well done as always.

Hi Bonsior dear Patrick
Nice panfocus image shot with all in one! i think Vietnam is very attractive and strange country that makes me come back so many times. So well considered vertical framwork with best balance as usual.
Thanks for your sharing and have a good day!

sympa cette vue avec beaucoup de profondeur. J'aime beaucoup cette compo en strates et le format carré.
SteveH (6191) 2013-05-08 16:29
Hi Patrick, great shot with very interesting composition. That we can't see the women's faces is unusual, but seems to work as given the other elements it isn't necessary to see their faces to know something of their lives. Cheers, Steve

Le temps n'est pas engageant, mais il faut bien vendre sa maigre pêche sur un étal de fortune. Belle perspective qui donne à voir les bateaux au port et les fameux rochers de la baie de Ha Long!

This is almost for us Westerners not to believe, a little bit fish sell along the street.
You took a very nice picture with these two ladies but also the small port in background.
Great composition, lovely presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

Interesting scene, curious view.I like frame and colors.
Good reportorial photo.
I like this daily life shot.
abmdsudi (39522) 2013-05-22 18:46
They colour and liven the grey day, it's not just the colors but also the composition leads the eyes so nicely to explore the scene and its surroundings. The peaceful atmosphere further adds to the sensational shot and the small traders are there make it works, and all that important element. Superb capture.
macjake (52040) 2013-06-04 3:32
nice to see Halong Bay from this vantage point :)
looking at those boats in the bg really gets me thinking there must be tones of great photo opps there!
I"m also wondering what the SMELL is like here during the fish market, especially on a hot humid day! yikes!
fine cultural shot though, as thats your specialty :)
This is certainly not Vancouver.
enjoy your day
