A young monk, with a lot of passion, trying (and succeeding) to catch fish for a meal.

This photo is simple, and nothing comes in between the man and the sea.
It is straightforward. It is not sophisticated or complex.
I would never have done this image.
But I can really appreciate your own approach, and the feeling conveyed by such a candid depiction, as it forces the viewer to pay attention to this gentleman and coming up with an interpretation of what's going on. Not having read your note, I would have thought he was absorbed in a prayer, a meditating moment or a contemplative serenity.
This image is simple, distant, not intrusive, but it catches the attention and communicate some kind of spirituality, even if he is busy fishing.
A photo with lots of merit, probably because it leaves place for interpretation, for the contrast between the humble man facing an endless sea and the impression of remoteness and detachment.

Bravo et amitié

Beautiful composition and good color combination also, a deep blue sea and deep black colored dress monk at the foreground, good contrast and well sharped image.
