This is a very pleasant photo with a fine atmosphere of late summer. The three young persons who have come to the river provide life and colours. I am surprised to see that this great river really looks so quiet. Everything here seems very idyllic, even in spite of the tall mast and the buildings on the hill. The colours are superb.

Vraiment un bel endroit et la vue est splendide. La perspective est excellente avec la rivière qui se perd au loin. Bel atmosphère de tranquillité et les personnages ajoutent de la vie à la photo. Les tons de vert sont superbes et beau contraste avec le bleu.

Slightly enhanced colors and sharpness just right so that the beautiful nature comes to the fore.
Sholahov was a great writer and Nobel Prize winner.
Your work is full of poetry.

a very attractive and vivid description of this lovely natural environment that looks so fresh at the end of the summer. I like very much the composition and the strong sense of perspective and depth that takes us decisively along the river. You have balanced the view of the two banks in an excellent way. The strong light is lovely and invigorating, the natural colours are so delightful.The three people add movement and colour. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great week,
