Squid drying in the sun in early October, along the Sokcho waterfront. I like fresh squid, as calomari, but I am not a big fan of dried squid.

Hi Chris - I like your shot, very interesting post in the spirit of TE, it definitely makes me want to taste those dried squids... and it's my lunchtime now. Thanks for sharing this, Daniel

Nice picture. The shadows on the floor are great. Good composition with the squid drying.

I think I have never tasted dried one. Fresh is good.
Photos of work have always a special kind of interest, like yours here. The presentation is good and by the visible parts of the background good sharpness can be detected. TFS

this one i love - the squid look as if they were put up there with the racks for some artistic exhibition;
i love the light here - strong side light generated additional repetitions of shadows;
really nice work,

An interesting sight for me, never heard of dried squids... Fine compo with those many lines of racks and an overall diagonal feel.

For sure an original subject carrying plenty of LATW value, which I appreciate, the funny thing that made me laugh is if I wouldn't read the note I could mistake them for bras and wonder about the korean women's needs to own so many... ;-) As for colors I'll go against Rafal and despite the Korean sky wish to see such shots in colors !
Have a nice day,

Good documentary on the squid drying, Chris, as well as a nice use to show them as a graphical pattern by the water, the impact of which is further amplified by the shadows on the pavement. Good timing to have some people included, one of them framed by the structures.

I agree with you . but good daily life sense and interesting view. have a nice week.
my overall evaluation -> ***
ozpaul (288) 2006-11-06 8:48
Hi Chris, Seems like its all been said here - even that they look like bras - Probably what impresses me most technically is the lighting which could easily have been overexposed/contrasty. Then there is the question as how long you can fish sqid in great numbers before they go, like the edible fish in the sea... Regards Paul.

a strong image. Never saw it before. Interesting posting.
I like the shadows on the floor.

Well captured moment of local costumes.
Good colors and details, resulting in a very pleasant picture.
TFS and have a nice week.

très originale comme photo ! la lumière est excellente et donne beaucoup de transparence et de légèreté à l'ensemble. Bon cadrage.

Hi Chris - me neither, I prefer them fresh and deep fried, I bet these are quite pungent, but they do make photogenic subject matter.

I'm with you on this one - calamari, okay; dried squid, are you kidding? Still, it's interesting to see how these things are processed in different countries. I like the repeated shape of the squid in this, which looks something like prayer flags. Well done!
Gerrit (51935) 2006-11-06 20:54
fantastic sight. Great light and see through and very extraordinary racks.
kclai (2267) 2006-11-07 2:07
Yeah, dry suid is my favourite but always remember that once I consumed it, I have my mouth washed with listerine and brushed my teeth, too. Yeah, it's delicious but the smell from the mouth.............yuukkkkkkk.
Hey, that's a good show by putting the view of the squid process here.
Cheers and good day.

I can't tell from the thumbnail about your picture, but it's very good POI
the lines, and shadow are very nice

Very informative picture. I've seen fish mostly dried on the ground. When I was in Negombo in Sri Lanka I saw acres of dried fish. The sight was impressive.
Here, the racks of dried squid are similarly effective to watch. The impact is strong. I just wonder how they keep the birds away!
jinju (14265) 2006-11-07 4:36
here you got the exposure bang on. As a result the colors are rich, beautifully saturated, you have absolutely fantastic contrasts and the subject matter is really effective photographically. Sometime sthough I see photos that would look great in b/w from you and Im waiting for a b/w shot from you:)
vincz (19113) 2006-11-07 4:44
Very interesting diagonal composition. The shadows work perfectly. Great job!

Nice open air market. I like this colourful composition with this great POV.
jemaflor (95421) 2006-11-07 8:46
Interesting view to share, good report and good light to give shade, nice effect on your shot.
john_c (24666) 2006-11-07 10:17
A fascinating scene. I like the way you framed this and angled the drying racks into the scene. The people standing on the waterfront enhance and provide perspective and one can even discern a distant lighthouse. The shadows here are very effective. Well captured, Chris.
elmec (12210) 2006-11-07 16:24
Very interesting scene!
I like perspective and a lot of details there!
Great is You shot people in the back!
axiotea (21651) 2006-11-07 23:51
An interesting compo which I would never guess what it is if you didn t mention it! A good perspective as well.
AiresSantos (56155) 2006-11-08 3:08
Gorgeous picture. Excellent effect of the shadows on the floor. Very good composition and colours.
TFS and greetings,

That's a different subject, but yet it's an amazing shot! I love how the different racks cast the shadows the sand and how the light was captured! Great composition with great details and sharpness!
vagabondtravels (6511) 2006-11-08 19:47
Very unique Korea capture. Always interesting having the dried squis at baseball games here.
jmdaoudal (82) 2006-11-09 1:54
This is a very interesting subject and well shown.
Thats a nice "artisanat" at the time we have big factories to do the job in less time than the sun does :-))
pranab (5354) 2006-11-13 3:26
aahh! the things you learn from trekearth!!
great capture chris. nice capture of a daily life moment. i wonder if they treat the squid before drying!
svo555 (1028) 2006-11-15 17:11
Very curious one, and I didn't konwo about it...
oochappan (16355) 2006-11-16 5:40
Excellent taken in perspective with the shades on the beach and as a see through curtain to see the people at the beachline, excellent shot Chris.
riclopes (35577) 2006-11-20 4:53
Olá Chris, these squid drying seem wonderful for photographing experiences. Visually, are quite attractive and can give a nice repetition effect. Very good perspective, with a beautiful lighting and nice shadow effect on the ground.

Who would think of taking this subject in photos ? Not only informative, but also esthetical !
Colours and sharpness perfect, good framing too - and again, it's a pleasure to visit your gallery which is so large and a wonder, I think I'll never finish exploring it (this one again from your "random", but today I had the choice with another tempting one, titled "Xiamen Skyline" : hoping to see it again in your randoms another day (or another surprise would do too ! :)))
