In Mui Ne, just after the sand dunes, you discover the harbour and that is another great moment.
The fishing boats are looking like... a floating colorful forest, on the blue China sea.
There are hundreds of them, standing still in a cute bay.
A kind of a silent color dance...

I like the repeating pattern of the boats and the soft sun shine. Cheers, Michael

Wow, what a huge ammount of ships and indeed they have very nice colours. Excellent capture with a good DoF. Well done!

Wow, Stéphane, I have never seen so many of the traditional boats before. It looks that a competition event :D.
A well seen and well captured picture. Nice contrast and good sharpness.

I took a picture, maybe in the same spot as you took this one, but with a Kodak 1mp camere my shot is really crappy.
I really like to have a chance visit Phan Thiet again.
the sand dune, this Harbour, the people that give us lots of chance for our hobby.
thanks for sharing

It looks like some kind of festival for the fishermen. In my home town there is a festival of the sea where all the fishing boats would go out to the beach and a lot of activities are held including offerings to the Sea God. Its a day of picnic for them. I am not sure if it is the same here.
Very nice view of these boats and I can feel the excitement you must have felt. I like this pano format and those little boats in the foreground are nice contrast. Well done!! Regards.

C'est assez impressionnant comme flotille en nobre et en couleurs, le soleil se reflechit bien sur les bois, c'est joli .
Impressionnant et vu le nombre il doit y avoir de la bagarre en mer quand un poisson se présente :)))
j'aime bien et je pense même que cela meritait un pano grand format tant il y en a sur la largeur.

superbe cette baie remplie de bateaux, quelle vision féerique !
La version large est un régal.
Les poissons ont peu de chance de leur échapper vu le nombre !
Belle lumière... on rêve...

Excellent shot Stephan... Very crowdy scene here. Lovely light and perspective and very good colours indeed. Well done!

I think stephane that this photo woudl qualify for a Large Post meaning that you could upload a better quality version for us to see. With panoramas with ratios of 2:1 you may post a large version so we can see all the detail!
It looks like a navy all coming in to attack a coastal region! The colours in this light are great, the boats look so similar, I bet its confusing trying to find yoru boat amongst all these!

Cette photo me fait penser à une fresque.
La quantité de bateau présent est impressionnante et irréelle.
La lumière est géniale, seul la poupe des bateaux est éclairée par une lumière très chaude.
Le format que tu as choisit va très bien et met en valeur cette scène.

I love this busy scene in the harbour. It is full of life and many small details. I particularly like the small boat in the bottom right corner. Works well as a panorama - thanks for posting the big pic.

Tres bonne idee d'editer cette image en panoramique, les bateaux y gagnent en presence, et la scene en expression.
Vachement busy! les poissons n'ont qu'a bien se tenir! :-)

Wow ils viennent de rentrer de la peche, le petit port de Mui Ne devait avoir une animation et une ambiance incroyable....T photo est superbe et retranscrit bien la belle lumiere du matin.

That's some fleet you've captured here. I like it as a large format image because we can see all the ships in detail and you can tell there are so many more than appear in this smaller version. The colors are nice here. And capturing all the boats in this direction add to the overall feel of a large fleet unified. Also it's nice how they crowd into the corner it seems and spread out in arms from there. Nicely captured Stephane.

Excelent view. Fine colours. Boats are astonish.

What an impressive panorama of this harbour.
great action and details.
I like places like this, but many times when im at similar places, i get dissapointet when i see the pictures, because it is difficult to catch a mood like that. But i think this one succeeds pretty well.

Quite a busy harbour!
Colors are great.
