[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This picture was taken at a beach on the north-west coast of Nosy Be.

Nosy Be (which means "Big Island") is, in fact, the largest island of Madagascar which, itself, is the fourth largest island in the World. Although Madagascar might be three or four times the size of Britain, yet Nosy Be is only about 30 - 35 miles across. It is also known as the "Fragrant Island" as there is cultivation of the Ylang Ylang tree for the manufacture of perfumes.

These boats or "Pirogues" are used by the local people for transport and for fishing. They are very narrow in the beam but also very stable because they are equipped with a carved torpedo-shaped outrigger.

This picture was taken on film with my old Olympus OM1N. It seems incredibly grainy now - I rather think that this wasn't Kodak!

me gusta mucho esta imágen.. me parece que los colores estan espectaculares, pero debo renegar por una cosa... este es un encuadre muy típico, y me parece que usted tiene las capacidades para poder realizar un trabajo mas original en un lugar tan espectacular como este...

Hi John

This is a great shot - looks very beautiful and exotic. Nice colours and composition.

Pity about the grain, sure it could be tidied up with Neat Image - though don't ask me how as I've not got around to learning how to use it yet. :-)
TFS and all the best.

Sandy

Hi John,

After Sandy's critique I thought I must try Neat Image on this.

Although I suspect that the image has gone a bit brown with age, it is a pleasing composition. How did you scan this?

So, I have tried a WS for you.

Regards,

Peter.
