I took this photo of these four fishermen on the first day of our four day stopover in Fiji. We walked past this location every day and I had hoped to photograph them at sunset. But unfortunately this was the only occasion they were there. I guess this was the perfect tide?

We don;t see enough images from Fiji here, this is so interesting, and in such an enigmatic country culturally to us all. Good balance with the light here too.

I love the composition and exposure in a quite strong morning light against the sun which is challenging, but the result is considerably attractive enough from this less visited place. Those almost-silhouetted fishers really add interest as vital components that make this image, creating the impact to the still surrounding. The long shadows have added another dimension and depth, enhancing the textures as well. Excellent colors in particular the calm water looks so tempting and good addition of brown muddy color for good contrast overall. Surely a great effort on your part. Well done

What a beautiful scene from Fiji. You have captured it on a clear sunny day whre we can see the shadows on the beach and in the water. The colors and sharpness are superb and the image has great depth.

I have another theory - Maybe they didn't catch any fish and that's why they didn't come back! Beautiful location though, you would think there would be fish there. Very tranquil place with lovely colours. TFS

this is an amazing picture: mainly because of its special mood which is created by the lighting and these fishermen. You chose a perfect POV to capture this scene! my congratulations!!
