[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the main town of Dodong, on Ulleungdo (Island) in the East Sea, or Sea of Japan. The high speed catamarans in the harbour take around 3 hours to Donghae (Mukho Harbour) on the east coast of the Korean Peninsula. The big boats here are departing. 'Arrival' boats are several km away, in another harbour. A fleet of cheap taxi cabs waits for the arriving passengers to shuttle them to Dodong & Jeodong, the other main town in this part of the island. There was a weak typhoon in the area, so weather was not the best. People coming back from Dokdo the following day in smaller boats, complained of seasickness.

Hi Chris,

The colors are beautiful, especially the umbrellas of the vendors in the foreground. The catamarans are well positioned at a thirds intersection, with excellent sharpness and DOF. A beautiful, bustling scene.


busy but very colourfull shot Chris lots to catch the eye
tfs regards bryan

Interesting scene, very vibrant colour and is just so typically 'Asia' with these markets along the streets...

I'm sure you've done a little tweaking here and there - I would do a little more in the sky at top right as it looks a little bland, maybe partial grad filter, burn, colour and so on..

Nice view of street life in Korea though - summer must seem like a long time ago now!!


Hi Chris - This is a nicely colorful shot of a busy little Korean scene. Good perspective excellent sharpness.

Hi Chris,
A very colorful port shot with these multicolored umbrellas serving as shelters to the street vendors!
A very interesting presentation with so many to navigate and discover!
The two catamarans are well placed to enhance the composition.
Well seen and neatly presented.
