This is taken at the port in Tagbilaran, Bohol - a small island in the Philippines. This little boy was with her mother in the same boat, waiting for people to throw coins at them. That's how they make a living.

I cropped the photo, and resharpened the colours.

Have a lovely Sunday everyone!

hi Maria

I can see you are doing well with portraits in your gallery.

This is nice shot of the little boy on the colorful boat and with blue water in the BG.

I think if you play around with composition by orientation of the boat and oar, it may be better presentation.

Perhaps sharpness can be improved a little more. Basically the color contrast is strong and makes it a feature here.

Nice work.

tfs, bill

nice shot here, but it seems that you overdo the color sharpening and you almost cut the head of this little boy. Thank you for sharing and your effort to do this shot is worth. Have a nice day!

I love the color...very well composed
