For these people, daily commute means riding a dugout canoe..

Took this pic in Lake Sebu (found in Mindanao in southern Philippines) while we were on a *lake tour*. The small boat we were in was much more comfortable these dugout canoes. One rocky movement in these canoe will mean swimming in the cold lake waters, at least for us *non-canoe riders* :)

The Tbolis love rich colours in their traditional costume as seen in Hesitant Smiles. Their daily wear is also as colorful...

i think the colours are to hard !!
i like the composition, maybe u can try black and white

hi Allan,

nice portrait, can i save this image ? i love to see the rever and natural life here, so down to earth.


You've got some great sharpness and vibrant colours in this one Allan, I love the way you've captured and played with the water and all those people aboard the boat.The house on the background make this a nice travelogue making me wish I were there too.

Great composition and saturation. An excellent representation of the Tbolis and their love of colour especially!
Very good work, as always

Hi Allan, nice catch ;) a little soft though, I like the ripples on the water.. tfs

The reflection and the small regular waves are beautiful and so is the colour contrast between the green forest and the red clothing of the boat-riders.
Regards, Tibi
