[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Last weekend, I spent mine in an island not far from Jakarta. Not really meant for picture hunting as I usually would like to see the condition first before I go for picture hunting later. To know what kind of equipment needs to bring. But this scene just caught my attention when I strolling along the beach. It's cloudy morning, and rather foggy. The horizon line just barely visible in the b/g so in post processing I decided to just clone them away. Also clone out other object such as small rocks, trash...to make it as simple as it can be.

Hope you like it

Hi Yan,
I like the warmer tones in this shot and the fog here really adds to the mood of the picture. The reflections look wonderful as well. I wonder what a tighter crop might look like. Anyway, nice shot Yan.

Wow Yan, what a superb and strong image !
The color is beautiful, and the content minimalistic, all together with the composition a super posting.

love a lot!
yellow water is preaps (or for me!) a little too much but why not!
preaps also the boat is a little to much in the middle from your photo
but it's really a nice shoot from nowhere see!

Hello Yan

This is a pure jewel of minimalism.

Ciao Yan

Beautiful look, beautiful color and detail!
I like the solitude of the boat in the middle
the warm waters of this lake!

Beautiful minimalistic shot, warm colours and nice composition

nice reflections and gold light, thanks yan,


It is said that "boat" is symbol of womb-like protection, also linked to the salvation and regeneration symbolism of the ark. And "yellow", closely related to the symbolism of gold, is associated with the sun and its life-giving generative powers. All this represented in the fantastic photo. I love it. Saludos,
