[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A group of local fishermen return from an early morning deep see fishing trip. These people are really brave as the unforgiving force of the ocean did once show its wrath not too long ago during the 2006 boxing day Tsunami which wiped out thousands of lives on this small island. They work really hard for their living and I admire their spirit and outlook on life- pure simplicity. This was taken while on holiday at a famous beach called Bentota in down south Sri Lanka recently. It is truly beautiful here and yet feels eerie when you know the history...

Love all the layers in this, right from the sand to the sky at the top. And that blue... wow! The fishermen and boat are well placed within the shot. They are indeed brave men.

Hi Dilshan,
NIce work capturing these fishermen headed out to sea. The lines in this are wonderful and I love the color of the blue sea. Nicely composed shot as well. tfs

Hello Dilsahn
Interesting view of this beautiful beach with the fisherman captured with amazing gradient colors of the layers from warm to cool..wonderful..
My Best Wishes

Very nice documentation of the daily life of ordinary people. And beautiful seascape. Details are so crisp and sharp with wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

A nice energetic shot with an immense amount of mood hidden in it, Dilshan!
I like the color of ocean and the fishermen with their determination against the water waves.
Well caught light in this whole scenario.
Good work.

Hi Dilshan,
A nice action shot of this boat floating on such waves. Perfect light management and an adequate shutter speed to freeze such action.
A very sharp image and a perfect posture to conform with the thirds.
Lovely contrast of colors.
My regards,

Francis Xavier
