[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Donning a sheet of plastic fashioned into a rain gear, this man expertly manuevers his old dugout canoe through the nooks and crannies of Lake Sebu. You can see how he balances precariously on the end of the canoe.

You could see his nice reflection on the water and how his red/pink gear contrast nicely with the saturated greens of the foliage. (Rain always seem to saturated the green colors)

The daily life of these people revolves around the lake and the canoe is the only mode of transportation (see other pics of Lake Sebu here and A Balanced Life)

I tried riding one of these once as a boy. That was when I discoved that the lake water can be quite cold :). So today, I never ventured out on the lake unless Im on a much much larger boat :)

Hi Allan, good photho, nice composition, the reflection at the water is good. The green very intensive.


PD. N have points now

Nice shot. Great colors. Very sharp. Looks like in a dream. Well done. Sothy

Hi Allan

Wonderful reflections & a tranquil mood captured in this superb image. I like the stark colour contrast of hot pink against the greens. Tfs!

It may be very balanced but extremely colourful and vibrant. the natural tones contrast well with the thing he's wearing.Nice reflections and textures. There's an overall wet feel in this image which has good pov and dof.

Hi Allan,
I like the title; most likely true on more than one level.
I do like the pink contrasted with the greens, and the different textures of foliage contrasted with the ripples on the water.
A great theme!
All the best,
