This is one of my new places. As you can imagine this area is an old fishermen shelter and located at Suriname River’s muddy shore. They are preparing their boats for new fishing tour while repairing nets and waiting for ice because they don’t have capability to produce ice on their boat. Their one fishing tour takes at least one week, ten days in Atlantic Ocean then they need a lot of ice for to keep fishes fresh. When everything’s are ready they must to wait for high tide too for leaving.
I was at backside of one boat in mud as others. There's also a new pier investment for serving to them ice, selling, utility etc. in the future.

Lovely colors. I like the reflection in the water and this relaxing sky.

faganrodney (489) 2006-12-01 9:54
Great sharpness, and colours. I like how you captured the fishermen working as they wait for high tide. The sky and reflections work very well.
josepmarin (58357) 2006-12-01 12:47
Beautiful image here, it has a great perspective, is very deep thanks to his good DOF and to a good point of view, the elements are very agreeable at sight, and it has a perfect lighting and a few splendid colors. The sky has a great beauty with these clouds, you have worked very well with the CP, and have obtained a good result. It's a very nice picture, my friend.
syd1946 (18663) 2006-12-01 13:11
Simple composition but very beautiful!The sky for one more time is amazing and the whole scene is very interesting.Well seen colors and well balanced sharpness!Excellent work!

bakes888 (18499) 2006-12-01 13:59
Hi Ertugrul. Great photo. Excellent colour and sharpness. I love the way the colours of the sky and river contrast. Thanks for sharing.
sufi (9588) 2006-12-01 15:23
Merhaba Sevgili Ertugrul...
Another wonderful point of view and perfect perspective... The colors, the light and the clarity are perfect too... The sky is amazing and its reflection on the water is great...
stego (24132) 2006-12-01 16:11
I must say that you are one of the most talented "composers" that I know, at an higher level than most professionals. And that is even more evident because the themes of your posts would give rather dull photos with many other photographers. Besides the fantastic pov's, the sharpness, clarity and color saturation is allways awesome.
This post is another example of those. The sense of grandeur and depth of the landscape is great, as is the dramatic cloudy sky and its reflection on the muddy water.
kermit350 (9016) 2006-12-01 16:13
Merhaba Ertu?rul, the details are impressive and imposing for an image which I described as end of the world, as much by the beauty of the landscape that share envoûtement and the mysteries which releases such an inaccessible place, this photograph is gravitational, and this in spite of this muddy and marshy landscape a great purity is released from the image, it is fabulous this sky with the aspect at the same time to torment and highly-strung person, arkadacça selamlar .................
Merhaba Ertuğrul, les détails sont impressionnants et grandioses pour une image que je qualifiais de bout du monde, autant par la beauté du paysage que part l’envoûtement et les mystères que dégage un lieu aussi inaccessible, cette photo est attractive, et ce malgré ce paysage boueux et marécageux une grande pureté se dégage de l’image, il est fabuleux ce ciel à l’aspect à la fois tourmenter et nerveux, arkadacça selamlar
ben4321 (9875) 2006-12-01 16:41
Maybe it wasn't possible, but I think this would have been even better if you had taken this from further out towards the river; it would have enabled us to get a better view of the activities of the fishermen.
As it stands though, this is a great shot; good light and colours and with a good use of the boat in the foreground to frame the composition.
I like the reflections in the wet mud, and would have been tempted to allow them to play a more dominant part in the composition by getteing a bit closer.
Still, good work.
atus (15856) 2006-12-01 18:54
very well captured shot of a great perspective. Very good pov and what I like a lot, are the colours of the muddy water and the soft blue sky. The texture of the sky is very nice, too. Very well done!
Tfs and friendly regards.
Scharan (14144) 2006-12-01 19:29
É mesmo incrível esta imagem, um ótimo registro. Cores contrastantes e boa composição. O céu está belíssimo!
Grande abraço e parabéns.

sabyasachi1212 (19779) 2006-12-01 23:38
You bring us beautiful pictures from a country which is largely uknown to many of us. A simple shot but a very peaceful setting with the pier and the clouds adding to the beauty of this composition.
With Greetings from India
MIG13 (0) 2006-12-02 8:26
Olá, Ertugrul! Perspective, colours and sharpness are great here! A nice composition, showing interesting aspects of Suriname's daily life. The landscape is very similar to that we find in Amapá, the Brazilian State located close to French Guyana. Good note too! Obrigado, amigo! Grande abraço! Miguel.
Benedict (7076) 2006-12-02 8:57
the flood-color waters is a contrast to the blue sky and white clouds....very impressive! kudos, my friend!
paura (47186) 2006-12-02 14:10
Nice composition here on this very interesting place. The reflections are superb.
etiennejr (1022) 2006-12-02 23:53
Great shot with the wide angle. Works very well here. The colors and the framing really stand out. Well done, love it!
balatrek (7455) 2006-12-03 10:13
Excellent image, I like the light and the good clearness of the scene, the sky is impressive, good colours and interesting reflections in the water, good work.
jmcl (14535) 2006-12-03 11:13
Love the reflection of the great sky in the shallow water ..
gorgeous image of life. My eye keeps going to the different shades of green on the right in the rope .. nets .. and trees...
Henryk_Bilor (20799) 2006-12-03 11:52
What a lovely place. Bright and warm. Beautiful colour and reflections of the clouds in the water.
xavshot (69835) 2006-12-03 12:05
il y a une très belle profondeur dans cette photo : les nuages accentue cette impression. J'aime beaucoup la richesse des reflets. C'est une belle photo. Bravo !
Paolo (41222) 2006-12-03 12:26
Hi Ertugrul, amazing image with fantastic colours and a wonderful sky with a great light. excellent quality and POV.
adores (45243) 2006-12-03 18:08
Great photo!The POV, the colours, the boats, the light and that amazing sky are just great. Even the fishermen preparing the nets.I like it a lot!
ahmetgedikli (25605) 2006-12-03 18:08
Renklerin, yansımaların, netliğin, derinliğin bakış açısının harika olduğu bir kompozisyon. Ellerine sağlık.
vincz (19113) 2006-12-04 5:02
Great shot Ergutrul, the textures in the water and in the sky are so beautiful. reflection within this softly textured water is excellent. Congratulations.
jmdaoudal (82) 2006-12-04 6:03
C'est mon choix dans ce portfolio très riche et avec une destination sympa.
La photo est très bien construite à partir de la perspective des bateaux, elle fait aussi vivre l'activité de pêche.
Vraiment un bon "grand angle" avec des couleurs magnifiques
macondo (19483) 2006-12-04 6:15
Wow! Another superb shot from this region, Ertugrul. I really liked your Leonsberg shot. This one is so full of interest, from the men messing with their green nets, to the jetty with its strange structure on the end, to the rich brown water that has those intersting sandbanks and still reflects the blue sky and clouds. It's such a bright and sunny scene without any part of it suffering from overexposure. Excellent viewpoint along the sides of the boats on the right, and a great sense of space and distance. First class shot.
riclopes (35577) 2006-12-04 7:01
Olá Ertugrul, interesting note and wonderful capture of this shore scene. I like the framing with the boat at right, which gives deph and the colors are marvellous. That lovely sky and the soft look of the mud, at the low tide with the reflections make a very beautiful picture. It would be nice to have a better sight of the fishermen, but the sucess of this shot is impressive. Very well done!
Buin (42466) 2006-12-04 14:10
You show us a colourful, sharp and interesting picture of a great landscape. the bright light and the clar air a re incredible - incredible beautiful! A great photo!
Greetings from autumnal Germany (rain, storm)!
siolaw (38292) 2006-12-04 22:35
A fine view of that place with good POV and framing, excellent colors and sharpness and good view of boats and pier... good daily life scene
vagabondtravels (6511) 2006-12-04 22:36
Great capture of daily life. The colors really standout. Very sharp. Good work.
keribar (43841) 2006-12-06 0:38
One one your new places, buy also for us one exciting new place which makes me think " I wish I was there": Reflections on a muddy water : That I have never seen before. Perhaps being a bit at the left would let us see what the guys were doing. But overall, with the clouds and the matching orange hue of the muds, I think it is splendid. Keep well Ertugrul - Izzet
Tezic (17867) 2006-12-06 0:56
Nefis bir bakış açısı ve noktası... Renkler netlik ve derinlik ama özellikle gökyüzü harika... tebrikler..
Quentin (5280) 2006-12-06 3:31
Excellent photo! The colors and theirs contrast are very
beautiful. The composition is very interesting with the boat on a
side and a large part of landscape on the other. The sky is
great as the Dof. Well done.
john_c (24666) 2006-12-06 10:41
Well composed with superb lighting and reflections. I like the hues and tones here and the foreground framing is quite effective. The clarity of detail is also excellent. Well captured, Ertugril...later.
chc (1468) 2006-12-06 16:26
THe composition is very good. It allows to catch immediately the fishing activity in its environment. I like the polarized effect that underlines the colours very well. Well done,
edal (6804) 2006-12-06 19:29
Your photo is an example of excellent colors, sharp focus and nice composition. You may turn anyone to an Olympus fen;-))
osse (2808) 2006-12-07 4:24
Good shot. I like the low POV. Good DOF, POV, colours, sharpnes and light.
Well done mf.

Hey Ertugrul !
I like nice clouds , blue skies , hot seas and ...good photos.
You know what ? I'm happy !
bogus (10) 2006-12-07 18:47
There is something special in this photo. Colours and sky are perfect.
deblink (2548) 2006-12-07 19:09
Fantastic image here Ertugrul. The sky is amazing with the fluffy clouds, I like the way they reflect on the water too. The reflections from the boat and pier are really nice too. Excellent. Thank you for sharing.
sebcz (2345) 2006-12-08 10:36
I like the way the photo is dividen into parts, good composition. Interesting water colour, fine quality.
Runs (1072) 2006-12-11 16:08
Great composition with right perspective, nice colors and sharpness. Good effect of pola filter on water and sky.
prezntime (3946) 2006-12-11 22:43
I see some things that really stand out for me in this shot. First is your POV, the line of the boats going up along the right is an excellent choice to use as a perspective. The rich colors here are great and there is something mesmerising about the wave of the whispy clouds in the sky. There is alot here to look at and I think this is one of your best shots that I've seen.
See you later and have a good day friend.
sayat (2949) 2006-12-12 4:57
Özellikle geniş açı ve mükemmel gökyüzü ile, dört dörtlük bir kare elde etmişsiniz, tebrikler. Yakın ve uzak dengesi, şahane keskinlik ve mükemmel bir kompozisyon.
Mikos (4326) 2006-12-12 10:14
It is a picture full of life, light and an interesting pov. Great work ;-)
Have a nice day, thanks for your comment on my Turin picture
plimrn (21344) 2006-12-12 21:57
Your photos make me want to visit Suriname. The framing here is perfect with the boats sitting on the golden sand, the lush green accents and the perfect sky.
cbrman (21675) 2006-12-13 4:08
Très jolie vue depuis ce bateau ! Le contraste entre les eaux brunes et le ciel bleu est très bien rendu. Les pêcheurs sur la droite amène juste ce qu'il faut de vie à cette belle image !
hyasar (7773) 2006-12-14 18:00

Um abraço Gonçalo
MLINES (12516) 2007-02-18 15:39
Hi Parbo. Good composition of this river shore in your most interesting series. Excellent sharpness and true colours. Many people all over the world work in boats and i see this as a tribute to these hard workers. Good note. Murray.
ruisc_pt (10892) 2007-03-01 10:51
Great Great POV and compo.
gunbud (34066) 2007-03-12 0:27
Wonderful colors with a beautiful sky surronding these fishermen as they carefully tend to their nets while they await the tide.
pawelx (11) 2007-06-17 14:22
I was searching once for ANY photos from Suriname, and honestly, I couldn't find many. You rarely see this destination photographed, let alone photographed so well. I share all of the previous praise of your work posted here, the colours are great, the sky has wonderful colours, the perspective you used to show the floating houses is interesting.
eyesthetix (641) 2007-10-16 13:46
This is an exceptional photograph !
Great POV resulting in rather impressive perspective. Brilliant !
Best regards, Daniel
lcarolan (930) 2007-12-25 16:30
This is an incredible capture! I am really glad you returned to photography after 20 years, You have a lot of work to do to catch up with the work you would have done, had you not taken a 20 year vacation!
I love the waterfront and boats anyway, but the sky and reflections are what set this one apart!
Ber (8242) 2008-02-10 2:52
Great capture of daily life with fantastic colours and a wonderful sky
jusninasirun (17162) 2008-11-01 17:06
Hello Ertugrul. The Sky looks amazing with fantastic cloud formation. You have kept good part of the frame with excellent sharp details of the shelter with pristine view of the muddy water. Well captured in good metering and best regards. Jusni
ilDottore (5252) 2009-01-26 3:01
Beautiful wide angle shot.
I like colours, POV and composition here.
Mudddy water looks fantastic.
Thank you for another lesson, Sir! :)
Charo (51212) 2009-04-02 14:45
Hello my friend Ertugrul,
