Few boats are resting on Suriname River during its low-tide period. Its muddy bad allows to walk on it some times and give opportunities to fishermen go shopping by using their fishes for barter or converting to cash.
Converted from RAW only.
Many cheers you to all,

Hello, Ertugrul -
Very good use of the wide angle shot, which gives a wonderful sense of space and depth with this POV. The sky and the water's surface are beautiful, clear and well-captured. Nice image.
siggi (1419) 2008-06-17 11:16
beauty photo, all is well done: sharpness, colours, tones, POV. bravo, very well done!

Merhaba my friend Ertugrul,
I like this low POV that gives a good perspective of the boats on the splendid blue sky and its decorative clouds.
The light and the colors are magnificent, since it is usual in your works, and offer us a nice aesthetic, very pleasant effect at sight. It's a nice shot.
avene (12675) 2008-06-17 14:13
the photo seems a bit tilted to the right, but other than that it's a great work, I like a lot how the wide angle creates a feeling that everything converges in the distance. the symmetry of the cloud reflections in the water add to the calm and serene mood. very nice work, my compliments.
with best regards,

You have such wonderful photos of the big muddy river mouth. I am enjoying my 10-20mm Sigma also. It has done a good job here, with a good photographer in control. Nice work! cheers,

Olá Ertugrul, another great shot of your river. More sky or more river? I don't know, I like this balance with half/half composition here. Boats are fine, fisherman in orange is splendid. Love it.
sacavem (18614) 2008-06-18 2:42
The composition, the POV and the colours are just and outright beautiful. Interesting subject and a dramatic use of wide angle that works a treat.
danos (89935) 2008-06-18 3:07
very nice seascape view of the Suriname River with the happy fisherman to carrying to the market this big fish.The resting boats are really an eyes catcher,with this splendid sky over the river.A great shot with the calm environment to relax everyone.Well done my friend.

A beautiful scene of your own country, and captured within your style: with naturalness and from a right viewpoint.
I love the splendor of heaven, with its white clouds, as they play in an atmosphere of light and shade, establishing a good balance in the frame. Excellent work, my friend.
npecanhuk (69552) 2008-06-18 9:01
As I'am a reflection fan, couldn't avoid commenting on this one of yours!
The image is sharp, with natural colors, a great composition including the boats and the fisherman, right in the middle of the photograph, where in the top side I see a beautiful sky and in the bottom side, the muddy waters of the river that act like a real mirror!
TFS - Congratulations!

Your special theme! It's just a pleasure to look at. Wonderful reflection, sharp details and those touches of bright colors are just unique

Beautiful composition with the reflected white clouds adds much more to enjoy.The low light conditions creates the atmosphere and the fisherman gives the life in your image...
I like it very much!
Charo (51210) 2008-06-19 1:35
Magnificent tenuous light that gives him very good ambience. Marvellous scene of this port and his daily life with very good details.
Truja (4953) 2008-06-19 2:01
an excellent POV that shows the boats to us , calmed waters and the great depth
I like very much the chromatic force of the sky that has much protagonism.
Have a nice day,
cfreire (11741) 2008-06-19 14:22
Beautiful shot of these boats in the resting with marvelous framing, colors and contrasts by a smart POV. The clouds are wonderful in this beautiful sky, and the reflections are very attractive. It's a good job. Best regards, Consuelo
gunbud (34066) 2008-06-19 18:50
Another sensational delta shot with a beautiful blue sky/white cloud background seen making a striking reflection of the muddy waters of this tidal river.
Excellent details to the old fishing vessesl with a nice bonus of the fisherman going ashore for some shopping.
siolaw (38292) 2008-06-19 22:06
I like the low POV almost at water level, it gives good visual impact to the scene. Light colors and sharpness are fine, I get the impression it has a slight tilt towards the right side but nothing serious!
TopGeo (38208) 2008-06-20 1:32
Hello Ertugrul, Wonderful this one scene of Suriname! excellent work in this picture
I like the amazing sky and reflections in the water of river.Big perspective gives a wonderful sense of space and depth with this lens, and amazing colours. Good clarity and sharpness of the all image.
Vames (4356) 2008-06-20 4:59
hi Ertugrul,beautiful boats and nice sky!
rodgerg (55767) 2008-06-20 5:22
Very beautiful and very instersting picture. I like especially the superb reflections of the sky in the water. Very nice contrast too and a good depth of field with the houses in the background.
saxo042 (37604) 2008-06-20 5:38
Very fine POV, almost at water line as it seems. I like the reflections from the clouds. This is a fine and different picture for me, as I´ve never been to this part of the world!
Greetings from Gothenburg
Clementi (52514) 2008-06-20 6:19
very beautiful atmosphere created by these boats to rest. interesting the person's insertion, give life at the photo.
have a nice week end
lucasgalodoido (21223) 2008-06-20 12:25
muito bonita essa foto mostrando a essência da região, e gostei também da escolha da lente 10-20mm, que cria esse forte impacto visual, ainda maior na D2-x com seu sensor full-frame e 10mm efetivos na captura, ou ele cria algum tipo de vinheta na imagem? Na minha Canon EOS de filme só posso usar acima de 14mm pra não criar vinhetas...
Parabéns e Abraço
Budapestman (82620) 2008-06-21 2:55
Beautiful peaceful atmosphere with excellent composition. Colours and lights are splendid, great mood, Congratulations.
Have a nice weekend
pablominto (53746) 2008-06-21 23:23
Fine details in the capture of this maritime environment!
Boats of many shapes and sizes, and of course I notice the guy with the fish...
A good sky and fine colours and a well composed presentation!
COSTANTINO (59299) 2008-06-22 0:43
everything that has to do with boats is my favorite..This photo is very artistic

Compliments from GREECE
crckt (7218) 2008-06-22 7:45
Fantastic view, has a wonderful mood to it. I like the reflection of the clouds on the water.
Miha2ou7 (5048) 2008-06-23 4:42
A very nice motiv from your home, another great and effective use of your wide-angle lens. I also like the color contrast between the water and the sky here. Fine work yet again.
nisko (2642) 2008-06-23 11:10
what a wonderful and clear shot,with a vivid,dynamic sky and a very succesful point of view!
trekks (14348) 2008-06-24 0:27
Such interesting view, it looks like Malaysia's muddy river and sky. Nice composed shot of this main river.
John_F_Kennedy (43379) 2008-06-24 1:25
This is a great and very well composed photo. I like the low point of view to the boats. Well done.
stego (24030) 2008-06-24 11:57
I never get bored with these views of the Suriname river, its boats, the fishermen and the great sky reflecting itself on the muddy waters. As usual, a magnificent perspective (this time very low). It's so nicely centred...
Um abraço, José.
Vasa (16816) 2008-06-28 13:44

I cannot stop returning to your Suriname river magnificent captures, where human activity is "squeezed" between the spectacular sky and the calm river.
