Pulling-in fishing nets on the beach.
This is another photo like a similar shot I posted earlyer. Notice the difference in quality between a negative scan and a print scan!!!??

For some reason, I really like the brightness of this image. It gives it an old photo look, like you would find in a textbook about some historical event.
Pour quelque raison, j'aime vraiment l'éclat de cette image. Elle lui donne un vieux sembler de photo, comme vous trouverait dans un manuel au sujet d'un certain événement historique.

I also like the brightness in the photo. Great composition, and I like how the DOF focuses the attention on just the main subject. Interesting too, telling me something about life in Haiti.

L'absence de détail dans les hautes lumières pourrait paraître une erreur, mais perso, j'adore ça. Ça ajoute un contraste extraordinaire et garde le focus vers l'essentiel. Oui, on voit la différence dans le scan d'un négatif par rapport au papier.

indeed, as said, looks old, I like fishermen photos. I took hundreds in Varkala, india..... Such a tough life!

First, I like what you have done. The pic is overexposed but on the other hand, it gives a special effect. I would crop a part of the top and add some brightness on the subject's face. Well done indeed Charles. Merry xmas and a happy new year

I like this slightly diagonal composition, but would also recommend cropping the top

Very nice Charles. I love the brown tones, almost sepia, in this picture. I generally like very BLACK blacks in B&W photography, and a very crisp image, but this time the softer outlines and and more moderated colour really work well.
In reaction to other comments, I agree that the composition is good and the DOF is well used, but I definitely like how much sky you've left in at the top.
I wish you had more images from Haiti!

It's a wicked shot. There's a part of me that wants to take it into ps and adjust the levels for a more contrasty image, but another part of me that loves the brightness. It's better as it is I think.
