I took this shot at the Igapo Lake at downtown Londrina. This boy captured my attention when he was trying to catch something for dinner. He was fishing together with the other boy that I have shown in one of my previous shots. It was really a enjoyable day for outdoor activities.

Oi, Ricardo! Essa está uma beleza, de cores, reflexos e composição. Interessante saber que é possível pescar em meio à cidade! Parabéns! Abraço! Miguel.

Lovely composition - the contrast between the cityscape and the relatively rural foreground idea has been handled very well.

Hi, Ricardo. Technically very good shot - clear, bright, sharp. But what is special here is contrast between city giants and small grass "island" with fishing boy...who looks very natural and simple. what the catch he had? a few building reflections?

Well Ricardo I must say its a lovely scene for capturing this young lad fishing. Nice reflection of the city in the water. I think the photo needs a touch of rotation to level the water. Composition wise I see the lad with his rod in the bottom half of the frame and the city in the top half. I ask if it would be possible to shoot from a lower angle to merge the lad with the city background? Just a thought...and thanks for stopping by..Cheers!

Hi Ricardo - the lower 60% of the photo is awesome, the top is a bit too bright, maybe cropping the top third may be a more effective composition, the silhouette is wonderful.

very nice shot here! You composed it very well with the fishing boy in the corner and with the beautiful reflection of the buildings. The light and colors are spot on. Thank you and best wishes!
riclopes (35577) 2006-05-30 4:26
And the series goes on...very well done with it. I love them all. As in the others, we have the dark foreground, very well composed and balanced, contrasting with the attractive reflections, the greenery and buildings in the background. Parabéns, mais uma vez!
Um abraço amigo,

Otra bonita composición de esta bella ciudad, con buena y moderna arquitectura. Bien captado el muchacho pescando en estas aguas tan limpias, con unos reflejos preciosos. Me gusta como has hecho el encuadre, las hierbas y el pescador en primer plano, el lago, y la otra orilla con buenas zonas verdes y bellos edificios. Bien expuesta y bellos colores.
Una buena foto, sin duda.

Hi Ricardo, A beautiful postcard image of the city. The fishing boy and the small land on the side make a wonderful frame to this picture. An impressive skyline of the city and its reflections on the lake. A very well taken picture.
pranab (5354) 2006-05-31 18:35
the boy fishing against the background of the cityscape is wonderfully captured. good balanced light give us the relevant details to explore. good color and composition.
jbweasle (9373) 2006-06-01 5:35
Hello Ricardo, I am enjoying this series of your from the park. Again a pretty scene showing the peaceful and natural side of the city. You young fisherman is perfectly placed in the corner of the frame with his rod pointing in towards the centre.
pierrefonds (55022) 2006-06-04 12:12
A good POV of the fisherman, the lake and the city in the background, the refelection in the water is an asset to the photo. It has a good perspective and nice colors.
aloyho (6798) 2006-06-05 4:44
This is a wonderful series where you have some human activity set against an interesting backdrop of buildings. I like the idea. The echoing effect of the reflections here is very attractive and I like the colours and good clarity. Splendid shot!! Have a nice week ahead.

Wonderful composition, colours, lighting and good reflection. Have a nice weekend.
andeweg (139) 2007-05-08 2:35
good colors on this one as well. I like the shaded figure in the front with the fishing rod. It adds a story to the picture.
stego (22866) 2008-05-05 7:18
Vejo que tem andado ausente desde há muito tempo. Seja bem vindo de volta!
É difícil escolher qual uma foto para criticar, pois quase todas são muito boas. Nesta ressalta o enquadramento, as cores, a luz, os reflexos difusos e o contraste entre a cena bucólica do miúdo a pescar e das margens verdejantes com a paisagem moderna e urbana do fundo. Muito bela e muito conseguida tecnicamente!
Um abraço, José.

Like your photo with good sharpness, bright colours and the reflections in the water. Interresting composition.

Best regards. Salvator.
belido (19934) 2008-05-22 4:31
estive aí algumas poucas vezes. É uma cidade bem interessante e bonita. Gostei da atmosfera. Você encontrou um excelente ponto de vista com o reflexo dos prédios sobre a calma água e ainda com o garoto pescando que foi o toque final à cena. Belíssima imagem!
cfreire (11739) 2008-05-23 9:05
Beautiful capture well composed with nice colors, reflections and contrasts. I've enjoyed of the boy fishing at the lake; it's very nice moment. Good job. Regards, Consuelo

uma foto muito bonita essa mesmo, mostra bem a tranquilidade das cidades do interioir, embora não sejam tão pequenas assim, como é Londrina. Boas cores na foto.
Parabéns e Abraço!

uma linda foto. gosto dos reflexos, das cores e da presença bem colocada do pequeno pescador. londrina fica tão próxima de casa, mas tenho poucas fotos de lá na minha galeria.

the atmosphere of serenity is wonderful! What a quiet and peaceful scene – and it is very well composed. The gentle colors and the light are very pleasant. It is really a privilege to have such a quiet place in those dynamic surroundings! My compliments!
