Photographer's Note

This is a typical fishing boat from Southern Brazil, but it would be seen although Rio de Janeiro as well. Here, they were working in the waters of Paraná state, around 30-35 miles from the coast, and maybe 50-100 miles from their home-port, in Santa Catarina state.
How the fishermen work:
As soon as they found the school of fishes, they release the little boat to the water holding the other end of the large net. So, they turn around the school and close the net. Here, part of the big net is still in the water, keeping the school close to the boat, and they are using the little net, like a bag, to take the fishes from the large net.
I am posting this photo in colours here and the same one in sepia to the workshop area. I'm choosing the colours because I always love colours, but I would like to know which one you prefer. I really still don´t know which one I prefer..
I shoot f/3.5 because my poor cheap kit lens doesn´t work with high numbers anymore, due to its problem of error 99.
