[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
As we were on a ride on the river admiring Nature at its best, this boat came towards us and caused some waves and I though that my camera is going to get soaked with water as we were so low on this river boat. But it helped me to take some photos at surface level.

PP work: HDR

Ciao Francis, nice composition with a lot of people on nice river, great perspective, excellent clarity, fine details, splendid light and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Francis
very clear shot,good control of the exposure.
nice color..and great action scene of the daily life tourists
well done and caught

This appears to be a shot with exposure difficulties, with the people in shadow and the background in sunlight. But you've handled it very well. You have caught the movement of the water very well also.

Hi Francis
good capture of a nice traffic scene on the river. Splendid POV. lovely mood. nice deep colors. well composed and framed. fine PP work on sharpness and clarity.

Yes, that's the best part of this photo... that you were at surface level. I love that perspective .. makes us feel as though we're in the boat beside you.
I love the warm colors too, and the eye contact with the man in the boat.

Hi Francis, good exposure and shutter speed resulting with this sharp action shot. I love the contrast between the FG blue and the BG yellow/green. Well done & TFS

Hello Francis,
Wonderful light and colour luminosity, excellent composition with force.
TFs and my regards_Joy

Greetings,superb results here,the HDR did not rob the image of its natural look,but did enhance the overall effect of light and color.All the best,Otto.
