you have excellently realized the imaginative potential of this scene and created a well-balanced impression. The boat is an perfect eye catcher and the moody colors are really wonderful. What I like most is the excellent perspective. My compliments also for the nice note!

So peaceful and calm looking scene! While growing up in the Philippines we used to take a bath in the river early in the morning before going to school, this scene reminds me of those happy times. Great lighting and good details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

beautiful landscape with a nice atmosphere as you specify in the note, I like the composition with the traditional boat FG, very beautiful reflections and concentric circles around the child, make a nice effect even small waves on the river, always the best choice of 'hour to shoot with a beautiful light...

The simplicity is also the beauty of this photograph. The shabby colours of the boat blend so perfectly with its surroundings. The small boy making ripples in the water is lovely. Very well composed with boat on a diagonal.
Kind Regards, ann

Salam my friend.
This is beautiful time for picture with light so pleasing in the frame. The water is clear and the boat in the fg is well exposed. I like the the child in the water with reflection depicting the activity during early morning.
Thanks and have a nice day.

You're capturing well this riverscape by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the calm river with small surf and some color layers, and rich greenery in behind. The long boat at FG is arranged by a good position in entire image. And, the kids playing in the river makes a story. A good photograph with Asian atmosphere.
Have a nice day.

Good frame to the riverscape, unique long boat at foreground, nice soft lighting effect, the wave of water add more effect to the riverscape too, impressive silent nature view by the river, distinct photo, good shoot.

La lumière basse de de jolies teintes, des reflets, la longue barque sous la lumière bien cadrer en avant plan, la transparence de l'eau, c'est joli, calme et apaisant comme sur la photo précédente, bravo
foozi (7101) 2012-04-25 5:17
very lively indeed upon looking the long boat cut across diagonally. The lighting is splendid in giving a better view of the details in the boat and the texture and ripples of the water. The boy add another dimension of livelihood of the community.
Very lovely colors that attract the eyes definitely.

yes, the scene is simple, but has a great vitality and inspires us a great calmness, and it gives a high quality to this composition.
I like the presence of the boy inside the water of the river, and the nice graphical effect of this long canoe in foreground.
An excellent work with the light and with the colors, and a great sharpness, in this beautiful work.
adramad (39182) 2012-04-25 7:18
Wonderful image that conveys a sense of peace and tranquility, with the still waters and beautiful lights, I like the diagonal touch gives this long boat in the foreground, nice to touch the child in the water.
A nice range of colors with a special brightness. Well done.
Have a nice day.

Boa noite Abmdsudi
The golden colors are splendids. A composition with a nostalgic mood. Superb capture. this canoe has tha marks of the pictures. T

Sabaidee once more.
This one is also beautiful with the low sunlight that painted everything in a warm golden glow, the boy playing in the water adds to the daily life value. It depict well the slow pace and the tranquil way of life by the Mekong, especially outside of the larger villages.
Due to the landlock, the mekong play such a major role in the life of people in Laos.

Ciao Abmdsudi, lovely composition with boat in FG, fascinating reflections, splendid light and colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello dear Abmdsudi
Of the photos in your boat series, this is my favourite so far. The light is exquisite and accentuates so beautifully the colours of the long boats. And it's the boats which again provide beautiful diagonal lines drawing the eye into the centre of the image. The little boy playing in the water is the cherry on the cake, completing the work superbly.
Warm regards, thanks for sharing
