poor fisherman is trying to reach to shore while using the rope between vessel and land without having a boat paddle.
John Rambo is a fictional former Green Beret created by David Morrell in his novel First Blood. Morrell's character and ideas were used in the 1980s and 2000s as the basis for a series of popular action films starring Sylvester Stallone. More info is in Wikipedia for Rambo.

very nice picture of this fisherman.
I really like these lovely purple shades and these golden gleaming reflections on the water. Nice black silhouettes of ship, fisherman and dowels. Great sky too. Very well done.
Have a nice weekend.

Rambo has certainly marked a whole era with his style. An excellent resemblance had it been darker. As it is it appears serene and peaceful and probably the place I would like to spend a holiday
Have a great w.e.

The lonelyness of the fishermen! A very nice shot, very impressive with a nice harmony of colours. I like especially the balance of your composition and the reflections of the tender red color in the water. An another good photowork.
Best regards and attommrow,

Beautiful composition in which on this occasion, the river absorbs the colors of the sky and is presented with a wonderful and great warmth. Excellent catch my friend.

Seems a very sensible way to get back and forth to the boat, except that it might interfere with navigation by other boats ;-)
Lovely color and the silhouette of the fisherman making his way to shore grounds the expansive sky well.

Nice warm & light colors. The wavy water & reflections contrast dynamically with the peaceful evening sky. The fisherman with his own style of getting to shore is a nice attraction. Regards. Latiff.

Great colors and excellent composition. I like that half cloudy sky and the black silhouette of that fisherman.
Have a great weekend!

Hi Ertugrul. Very good shot assimilating John Rambo with the sky looking so vibrant. Sharp details with ripples in the foreground add perspective t this shot. Best regards. Jusni

Merhaba, my friend Ertugrul,
Perfect graphical effect obtained in this capture, with a special light and a few beautiful purple tones.
I like the good game of the silhouettes in this one cross-light, and the great sensation of peace that inspires to look at this image.
Excellent composition, my friend.
ALIRIZA (16423) 2008-11-01 11:06
Merhaba Ertuğrul Abi,
Great POV, funtastic shot. Very nice composition with lonely fishermen, warm colours of sky and the reflections. Well done my dear friend...
Have a nice Sunday...
cfreire (11741) 2008-11-01 18:22
Beautiful shot with nice soft magenta color with the silhouettes of the boat, forest and pier. Magnificent composition with excellent control of lights. Good POV and framing. Best regards, Consuelo

Merhaba Ertuğrul, I remember this film with John Rambo, in Rocky Balboa it was good also, just like for film it is a cold environment which this framework gives birth to in a feeling loneliness to support by the poor fisherman just like was to it Rambo in its war, it appears alone with the world, for this photograph you knew to collect a so particular timeless atmosphere, the color is declined in only one colour whose texture ideally serves again the glance on the subject, arkadasça selamlar ...................
Merhaba Ertuğrul, Je me rappelle ce film avec John Rambo, dans Rocky Balboa il était bon aussi, tout comme pour le film c’est une ambiance froide que ce cadre fait naître dans un sentiment de solitude appuyer par le pauvre pêcheur tout comme l’était Rambo dans sa guerre, il parait seul au monde, pour cette photo tu as su capter une atmosphère intemporelle si particulière, les couleur se décline en une seule teinte dont la texture ressert idéalement le regard sur le sujet, , arkadasça selamlar

very nice and idyllic this environment with the lonely fisherman to try to pass on the other side without a paddle.The subdued light, with the sun still painting pastoral colors in the clouds makes this a memorable shot.Well done.

Merhaba Ertuğrul Bey,
Harika bir çalışma!Işık,renkler,derinlik ve silüetlerle mükemmel.
lucasgalodoido (21093) 2008-11-02 17:15
funny this comparationm, the fisherman is the real Rambo! Good capture of sunset and silhouettes too.
Parabéns e Abraço

A picture is very significant in terms of colors, especially purple.
I like the composition, with the fisherman through and the great depth of field that gives the picture.
Perhaps the only thing they share is not part of the branch that is appreciated in my place, the PS had disappeared, but that does not reduce its merits to a great work like this. Excellent.
ilDottore (5252) 2008-11-03 10:20
Thank you for visit in my modest gallery. It is always great pleasure to hear something good especially from side as successful and advanced profi as you are. It makes me an impulse to continuous improvement.
I like this photo.
Indeed, the atmosphere captured here is like directly from Rambo IV (btw - very brutal movie, don't you think so?).
Particularly the colours are just incredible.
Just spotless composition.
All the best in your hammock! :)
edal (6804) 2008-11-03 14:01
A moody photo of Suriname river fishermen life. Interesting colors say much.
stego (24030) 2008-11-03 15:38
What? A centred compo of a ultra peaceful Rambo? Who cares about being centred? It's a very beautiful sunset view, with wonderful colours and a very relaxing and moody atmosphere.
Um abraço, José.
paura (47166) 2008-11-04 2:59
A very beautiful compo here, friend. Lighting management is really nice. well done.
Juntas (7960) 2008-11-05 1:37
Olá Ertugrul. Wonderful colors you have in this great composition. The view is very pretty with a magic atmosphere. Hard life for those people is the only bad thing I see there. Very well done. Regards. Paulo
sacavem (18610) 2008-11-05 13:44
Wonderful colours, light and pink atmosphere :)
sayat (2949) 2008-11-10 4:35
Beautiful silhouette work with amazing light management. The purple tone is nicely selected as the dominating one while the composition greatly intensifies the feeling of loneliness and effort. Great shot.
gracious (20025) 2008-11-10 9:26
I adored and compliment for this lovely image which I nearly miss it out from your gallery!
the colour is the main attraction and pleasing to the eyes very much indeed!
I spent few mins just to enjoy the calm and serenity of this great river and feels really nice over it!
many thanks my dearest friend for this wonderful sharing!
take good care and a big hug from NZ

Manzara zaten harika.

Dear friend ,
I like specially this color between pink and red, and the peace done by your photo.
Isit on the Parbo river?

Beautiful colours for this wel made composition.
Giorgio (11279) 2008-11-17 23:27
- After the Fisherman story, very good sunset with amazing color, almost monochrome with this light, well done!
patdeph (35748) 2008-11-18 3:29
the purple colours are atonishing and wonderful!i like the black silhouettes ,the alternation of clear sky and clouds,and the glittering water gives a nice luminosity!Magnificent!
Longroute (19396) 2008-11-28 6:20
this is really how we think about West Indies in Europe: A dream-like twilight scene with people and things outlined in black silhuettes. I like the monocromatism and the low clouds at the horizon. Me gusta mucho.

Desconocía la existencia de tu país, no sabía ni donde estaba,
he investigado un poco para saber donde esta y que hablais holandés, que os independizasteis en el 1975, es curioso como este país lo ubicaba en otro continente en vez de América.
Tu captura es excelente ese color rosado es precioso,
unas siluetas preciosas, y brillo y detalles excelentes, tiene que ser un lugar muy bonito! La pongo entre mis fotografía favoritas! BRAVO!
adores (37541) 2008-12-19 17:45
I really like this one! The colours are just fabulous and the composition also. The man seems so lonely and so perfect in the little boat. Good work!
