I think that is interesting to post a photo of this almost unknown river as is the country
Source: TE comments
At the back of Independence Square , behind Lopez Palace is Paraguay River
Length: 1,629 miles (2,621 km), I took the photo of this old and small militar ship that seems still working, not people, not ships, a quiet place to enjoy the last rays of sun but a dangerous place to stay, or so I was told by three polices that were leaving and refused to give me permision to go down next to the river or try a visit at the ship
The source and upper course of the Paraguay River are in Brazil, where it demarcates part of the frontier with Paraguay before entering Paraguay itself, which it traverses from north to south. It then forms the frontier between Paraguay and Argentina for the last 150 miles (240 km) of its course before joining the Alto (Upper) Paraná River, the combined river then flowing into Argentina as the lower Paraná River.

Un semi contre jour intéressant, bien sûr en cadrant l'horizon au 1/3 de la hauteur peut donner plus de profondeur au ciel ou à l'avant plan selon tes souhaits

Coordination of sky and water at colors
Prospects by putting a small boat, in front of a large ship, for large scale
In the World Cup foot ball, with country you at one group
Have a nice day

nelle tuie foto fatte in Paraguay mi ha particolarmente colpito la tonalità del verde spesso presente in esse.
E' una tonalità molto viva e brillante, così come particolare appare anche il colore delle acque dall'aspetto colorato, ma sempre un po' cupo.
E' questa particolare combinazione che, unita alla bellezza della composizione, rende molto piacevole anche questa tua ultima proposta, la quale si fa notare anche per l'eccellente nitidezza.
Ciao e buona giornata

Evidence of abundance of waters, Maria, the river is as wide as more famouse rivers on our planet.
The DOF and clarity are well collected here, and the navy vessel well placed along(did not know Paraguay has a navy, as it doe's not have sea opening's).
Fine shot, buen tardes,

The still blue waterfront looks so calm and peaceful that one doesn't like to think of it as dangerous. the included foreground provides nice variety. I liked the inclusion of the sky that fills almost half the frame. thanks for sharing.

Hola querida Maria,
an effective simple composition with great depth and sharpness to present a desolate and tranquil place, known by a few. I like the suggestive shady part of the ship that makes it look like a silhouette against the calm colours of the scenery. I also like the vast, smooth and luminous sky and the juxtaposition between the great ship and the little boat. The atmosphere you captured conforms with your note. This seems to be a calm but not a relaxing place:) Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

Nice view from the side of the river. The navy frigate is standing in stark contrast with the peaceful surroundings captured in this photo. I prefer the tiny little boat in the FG. Love the contrast between sky, the river and the grassy banks. Good shot with excellent clarity, natural colours and light. Thanks for sharing.

Paraguay doesn't have any access to the sea and must develop fluvial traffic Maria, good report, that big ship is probably a good carrier, excellent hues, neat picture, have a nice day

nice the view of this calmly and tranquil environment with the wooden jetty to adds depth and perspective in the scene.
I like the beautful presentation as the light and the colour management of the scene.

Tout semble si calme que l'on penserait pas que c'est dangereux, le navire n'est pas beau du tout, mais la présentation me plait bien, la lumière et les couleurs sont au top

it does appear to be a much to tranquil setting for a military ship to be present.
The little canoe helps to balance the scene very nicely.
Kind regards Les.

Your note vividly describes the moment your took this picture. It's a cool picture with a warship in the river. Thanks for sharing.

A simple river view limited in colours but still with some interesting elements bundled in. So peaceful and calm, good exposure too and bits of extra interest in the fg is lovely addition leading to main focal. Excellent effort, TFS

Una gran composición, que nos permite ver este grandísimo rio, impresionante anchura y caudal, ciertamente estas imágenes son poco conocidas, al menos para mi, el viejo buque da un bonito complemento.
Buena nota que nos viene muy bien como introducción,
Muy buen colorido, con ese esplendido cielo azul.
Buena gestion tanto de la iluminación, como de la nitidez.
Disfruta de un buen fin de semana.
Saludos muy cordiales.

he mirado esto rio en 4 o 5 partes, incluso en assuncion. me gusta la vista con el barco de Guerra, al mirar lo me hace recordar detalles de la Guerra del Paraguay, un tema que siempre me he impresionado.

A very nice and serene photo from a place hitherto unbeknownst to me. My only comment will be that the military boat is a bit dark, easily fixed by lightening shadows (see WS).
